    Need help asap

    I went to start my car this morning and it started but was running very rough and noticed smoke out the exhaust.

    It dies now even when warm and this is the first time it has happened.

    I looked and there is gas on my intake puddled up and it seems to be coming from somewhere...lol...it seems the carb is just dumping fuel like mad and leaking out somewhere.

    Does it sound like a stuck float or what?


    Can anyone please help me with this?

    It ran perfect yesterday.

    re help

    it definitly sounds like a sticking needle valve. fuel is coming out of your throttle plates on to your intake. every time i had this happen i usually found a piece of rubber hose in mine from pushing in new hose fittings. ken

    Thanks bigdaddy,

    All new braided lines from tank to carb so I bet that is it.

    Looks like I will be pulling it off and apart.

    I always find it's best to flush the lines after replcment of fittings or fuel line. This sure helps prevent contaminants from getting in the carb. Just my 2 cents!

    Thanks guys.

    The fuel lines were installed for me and I was told they were flushed, but lol, it sure wasn't.

    After taking it apart and cleaning it up it runs fine again, guess I will be heading to the shop today and giving them a bill for the gas I used to flush the lines and for my labor to fix their screw up.

    I ran about three gallons through the fuel lines before I put it back together,
