Question : MY car
is having a problem in the morning or when the engine is cold.
The engine tends to stall for the first three minutes before
the temperature rises to normal.
With twin carburetors, no mechanics have managed to fix this
I was told that I need to change the two carburetors but the
mechanics did not recommend this because they are unable to do
The car condition is still tip-top and I feel that it would
be a waste if I can't repair this problem.
I am not familiar with the set-up of this engine but I would
assume that the twin carburetors are fitted with automatic
If this is the case, one possibility is that the power lead
tot he chokes has either been disconnected or fused, such that
the chokes are not being activated when the engine is started as
the bi-metallic element inside closes the choke to enable easy
starting and then opens as the engine warms up.
The cause of the engine stalling is because the air-fuel
mixture is too weak when the engine is cold.
