Ok, I posted in the general Engine category, and figured out what I think the problem is.
since the temperature dropped below freezing recently, I went out to start my car, started right up, then died 3 seconds later. Looked at the carb looked like It was flooded. Let it dry out started it the next day same thing happened. Then I tried to hold the gas down so that the engine would get warmed up and idle, but as I held the gas down the engine slowly started to go down in rpm's and died. I was told to change my choke.
when I go out to start it up its closed all the way, then when it dies its closed 75% of the time, which way should I change the choke coil? make it more prompt to want to close? or make it more prompt to want to open?
during the summer car was fine then it became cold
thanks for help in advance
