Choke Repair

What is a vehicle choke?


Although newer fuel injected vehicles do not have a choke, a choke is the valve that helps control a carburetor?s air flow in an internal combustion engine for different driving conditions. When the external temperature is cold, the choke allows more fuel to enter the engine by reducing the amount of air that flows into the engine so that the vehicle can start without any difficulty.


How can I tell if the choke is working properly?


If the vehicle is running rough, the choke on the carburetor may need to be adjusted. A vacuum leak or ruptured diaphragm in the choke pull-off can also cause the engine to be hard to start, or cause the engine to stall.


What are my options?


The vehicle can either be taken to a local repair shop, or a skilled owner may be able to diagnose and repair the problem. There are automotive websites that advertise diagnostic and repair services. Other vendors offer free diagnostic instructions or sell repair manuals and parts online for specific makes and models.
