Your car probably has fuel injection. There is no choke. Everything is controlled through sensors by the PCM, and now that cooler weather is here, you may be experiencing hard starts because the cold engine is not getting enough fuel, for too many different reasons to list here.

There is a possibility that you have one of them variable venturi carburetors, and if that is the case, you may be able to find a conventional carburetor from a salvage yard that you could rebuild. Difficulty of the modifications I wouldn't know about.

sounds to me like your choke is not setting properly you should hve it checked. your choke is not setting properly just replace your choke component or you can try disconnecting the battery and see if it resets itself just remember that when you do this it resets the mapping sensor and you will need to adjust this by taking the car for a half hour drive so that the mapping sensor has a chance to reset all aspects of your driving habits this 97 mercury will do that when you take it for the test and reset drive

Use of choke in tubelight?

Choke has got two functions. Initially it raises the ac voltage to some 350 V so as to initiate the discharge of electricity through mercury vapour.

Why does the choke-oil light come on in a 1980 Malibu?

You have a blown fuse. The most likely cause is the choke is defective. i don't think it has anything to do with a fuse . i think your choke is out of adjustment possibley a week spring in the choke causing the choke to open to quickly . your carb may also need a rebuild if its a rochester they are not to hard to do . lots of info on the web . alot of bad info as well . The choke works in conjunction with the oil pressure sending unit. Check a wiring schematic and you can trace it out. Replace the oil pressure sending unit.
