Re: Carb problems, think ive adjusted it wrong....HELP!
Get rid of the autochoke and fit a manual one.
Most motor-factors should still be able to get hold of a kit to do this,
I did it to a mk1 astra 1.6 SR(same engine/carb as yours)about 12 years ago.
I got my kit from halfords for around £25 but they dont do them anymore.
If the kits are no longer available im sure you could knock something up from scrap yard parts and a bit of modding.
Even when they work ok auto-chokes are no good,they hold the choke on for far too long in my opinion,you only need the choke for a minute or two maximum.
Also,if your temp guage is going up to 3/4 on a regular basis while not in traffic etc there is probably something wrong!
