Question : I
AM a senior citizen and drive a 1986 Proton Sage 1.5.
Of late, the carburetor is giving problem.
The carburetor fitted on the Proton Saga is a very basic type of unit and
does not require rocket science to fix.
Any mechanic worth his salt should be able to strip it down and service
it with no problems.
However, in some older cars, there may be sufficient corrosion internally
in the carburetor to affect the performance and no amount of servicing can
In such a case, the best option is to throw it away and buy a new unit.
Do not waste your time with used units as they may also be having
problems and you will end up spending more money.
