Is it necessary to soak a carburetor in gasoline before installing it in a 1981 Toyota Corolla?

No. The carburetor will fill and function normally if you install it dry. You may want to use a little starting fluid to help it start a little sooner and put a little less strain on the starter, but otherwise, if it's put together right the carburetor doesn't need to be soaked to make the engine run. Even if it's put together wrong, soaking it won't help.

What is the function of a carburetor?

carburettar is to supply fuel to the inlet manifold ,which then goes to ignition chamber the carburettor supplies the fuel at a metered rate .the idlesettings etc, are all done at the carburettor. the amount of gas supplied depends on demand requiredAerosolize gasoline to help make gasoline vapor in a fuel/air mixture to produce good combustion. If the carburetor does not work well and the gasoline droplets in the aerosol are too big to evaporate completely they will not burn completely and unburned hydrocarbon emission rises.A carburetor mixes air and fuel into an easy to burn vapor. This is pulled into the engine where it is readily burned to produce power through combustion.

You were driving and your car tried to die like you were running out of gas you pulled over and went to start it again and it would turn over but not start just keeps cranking?

Was there gas in the gas tank? How old is your car? Sometimes your fuel filter gets clogged up. Sometimes your carburetor gets clogged up. Sometimes your fuel injectors get clogged up. With alcohol in the gasoline, you seldom have water in your gas tank because the alcohol mixes it with the gasoline so it no longer causes a problem. Is the gas cap tight on your gas tank. If it is not tight, that can cause the problem you describe. If your gas tank can not hold pressure, your car can act like it is out of gas. It is easiest to check your gas cap. Then replace your filter. Then clean out your gas line. If it still does it, hook it up to a computer. You could have computer problems. Modern cars have a number of computers. Electronics go bad. People make good money fixing them. Do everything else first.
