Patto Posted June 3, 2003 Share #1 Posted June 3, 2003 Hello everyone, this is my first post here... I recently brought Alfa's 240Z and sadly also brought his carb problems. :\A few weeks ago Alfa posted about the car's rough idling here, since then Alfa has done various things to it and I have replaced the plugs and will be getting it tuned to my altitude tommorow... but... the problems persist.I have a fairly limited technical knowledge and this is my first car without fuel injection but I suspect something must be rather wrong with the float in one of the carbs, the car runs terribly after using the choke, or idling for a few mins, and has recently started just dying when you put the clutch down into an intersection (the revs just rapidly drop without any spluttering etc to zero)... all of which can be solved by pushing the float up by hand, but as you can understand that isn't really a long-term solution. The carb seems to have problems adjusting the fueling ratio on and off choke and idle. Anyone have suggestions as to what is amiss? Could the float be rotten (is it made of plastic like Commodores?) or could there be a problemo with how it is hinged?Thanks,Patrick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
