Cold Weather Curses
As another minnesotan winter is just beginning, I am not familiar with cold-weather 'glitches/issues' with carb'ed autos, especially dating back to 76.
When my ltd is cold, and I start it up- it idles like crap, with a real bad lope; when I start driving (and it's still reasonably cold) it will sometimes (this is kinda hard to explain) putter out, so to speak. The engine will kinda die down and then pick back up after my putting the pedal down in reaction to keep it alive.
The carb is due for a rebuild, which I'm planning to get done this weekend.
Other than that does anyone have any say in 'normal' cold issues as well as anything handy you'd like to say ?
tx in advance.
