    This is my first time on a chat room of any type! I have a dual carb 2.0ltr '79 bay window, which has some dodgy soldering on right hand carb. This doesn't heat up like the left hand one and I think that the choke is on causing flooding issues. It keeps stalling at idle with a heavy fuel...

    I picked my early bay up from the garage the other day, drove it round the corner to a quiet place to let my girlfriend have her first drive, and we let it idle for ages while she got ready. After a while the idle just came to a stop. I restarted it but couldn't drive it because it just cut...

    So I have got my square back after having the crankshaft oil seal replaced....(engine out) Anyway it now has an annoying 'issue' I start the car from cold (starts first turn as normal) Runs 'ok' tickover wise for about 30s then races to about 3000rpm until the auto-choke comes off and the car...

    My bus has started causing me problems. It starts fine when the engine is cold, fires first time, takes a while to warm up but runs well. But if I turn the engine off and say go the shop, when I come back to it to start it takes ages to fire up. It'll turn over, and after turning over a few...

    Hi Forum. I'm new here but hoping someone can give me some hints to car problem? Basically my 1992 Golf Driver has a problem with over revving when you put the car in to Neutral. I'm fine driving along the motorway but it is a problem slowing down and coming off of motorways, general driving...

    When the engine is cold (ie choke doing its choking thing) all is fine but as soon as the choke opens fully there's a massive loss of power and a reluctance to rev. If I close the choke slightly by hand all is fine - the engine will rev freely but as soon as I release the choke to the fully...
