Popular Questions Asked
What is the function of a carburettor?
A carburettor is only used in older cars and are no longer used in modern vehicles. A carburettor is designed to deliver the fuel and air into the engine no matter if your vehicle is hot at high speeds or cold start in the morning. It regulates the mixture to ensure the engine continues to operate effortlessly through the valves, mixing together different amounts to ensure your vehicle runs correctly no matter how hard you are driving your vehicle.
What are the symptoms of a failing carburettor?
If your carburettor is on its way out or having issues, it will most likely cause issues with the performance and drivability of the vehicle. If you notice any of the below symptoms, it is important to rebuild your carburettor or get a replacement.
- Exhaust smoke black - you should never see black smoke coming out of your exhaust system. Black smoke is usually an indication that there is a rich fuel mixture when you accelerate. This is a sign that your carburettor isn't working correctly because it adds too much fuel to the air and fuel mixture.
- Issues starting your vehicle - various different reasons can cause this, however, if your air and fuel mixture are not correct, this can cause problems with starting your car. Depending on the nature of the issue, it may be hard to start whilst cold and get better when the engine warms up, or it may be hard to start the vehicle even when it is hot.
- Engine performance reduced - a bad carburettor can cause power reduction or possibly sluggish acceleration as the fuel-air mixture may not be correct or not being delivered to the engine correctly.
- Overheating or backfiring - another common symptom that can be caused by several different reasons, including if you are having issues with your carburettor. A mixture without enough fuel or a lean mixture can cause your vehicle to overheat or backfire. Your engine's performance can also be affected.
Why just tune a carburettor when a rebuild provides long-term performance gains?
Most vehicles that run a carburettor would be over 30 years old by now, and no matter the model, all could do with a freshen-up, if not a total rebuild. Weathered a worn diaphragm, sticking main jets, seals, or leaking gaskets are just some of the troubles that add up to engines performing below expectation and consuming excess fuel.
