Hello. i dont really need anything about cars im only 16 and my first car was a 1967 Mustang. Ive been having problems warming up my engine.It stalls after about 2 minutes of warming up. And people are telling me about RPM and choke. I know this question may seem dumb to most of you but how do i know if i have an Auto or a Manual choke? And how do i use the choke to warm up my car? What is the proper way to warm up a 67 mustang?

Re: Choke?

Hi Noobie! If you have a manual choke, you'll have a choke knob in or under the dash and on the carb, on the passenger side, you'll see a small cable going to the carb. If you have an automatic choke, you'll have no knob inside and a plastic round thing on the passenger side of the carb usually with a small tube running to it from the exhuast manifold (usually rusted off). The manifold tube is what gives the bi-metalic spring ( inside the plastic cover) the heat to expand and turn your choke to open. Hope this helps.
