    Default What's going on now?

    OK, so my 89 YJ is running good now. Got a brand new weber carb, fuel pressure reg. and everything is great.

    Except, now every once in a great while, my car won't start and I'll need to manually pop the hood and physically open the choke while my GF starts it up. It only happens AFTER the jeep is warmed up.

    Is this symptomatic of something I can fix?

    Auto choke?

    Could be sticking, or a broken spring. Def sounds like it's not working right. (I think there's an electric connection also?)

    I got sick of messing with mine, and went to a manual choke.

    Pretty cheap and easy to do, if you decide to go this route.


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.
