Is This In A Autimatic Car Or Manuel Trans Car? It Could Be Low Trans Fluid Or The Carb Needs Rebuilt.

Re: pull choke off car stalls, any ideas?

Every time I've had this happen [dozens to hundreds] it is either a vac leak,usually at the carb base, or dirt in the carb.

If the carb it used I'd pull the lid and see what's what, if you're new to Edel/Carter remember you pull the metering rods first carefully, then the whole top comes off. The boosters all come out so they are easier to clean.
