could be one of three things either choke is not working needle and seat are worn and fuel is leking or accelerator pump is worn and not pumping fuel
Located in the fuel tank- unless there is an access area tank may have to be removed
NOT A J0B FOR THE INEXPERIENCED UNLESS you have a lift and jacks to remove the trans. Get a manual on it if you want to do it though.
What kind of car is it if its a newer model then the idle position sensor if it's a older car with a carburetor the u need to Clean it and set the idle
Its hidden under the dash. its one off those things that is tricky to get to. and cant just really see it unless you use a mirror. but where the fuse box is, its beside that. but have to enter from underneath and reach around for something round
Does it stay running after putting gas down throttle body? 88 should be throttle body injection not carb. TBI you should see gas squirting out of the injectors when its cranking if not then no pressure or bad injectors, wiring
located in the fuel tank of a 1992 corsica ,it may be the same for your model if this is so you may need to drop the tank . I would notadvice you to take on this job unless you have to.
Sounds like a dud fuel pump to me. Check all the wires first . Funny though , 87 rx7 had no carburetor...it has electronic fuel injection.
if it has a carburetor it is normal
You do not state the year of your Renault. Unless it is a very early model, It may not have a carburetor to find. It will have a fuel injection system instead.
There is a fuel pressure sensor on the back of the carburetor for the 1982 Corvette. Normally, there is no fuel shut off switch unless it is installed as an after market part. If the fuel will not shut off normally, replace the fuel pressure sensor behind the carburetor.
(No Charge)First test the battery. If it is OK check the alternator. (Die at stoplight)Start with a good tuneup (plugs, points, rotor, distributor cap). If that doesnt solve it, either replace the carburetor or rebuild the carburetor. It sounds like it is staving for gas at idle which could be a minor carburetor adjustment.
Good luck with that one. That car doesn't have a carburetor unless it has been altered.
Choke not closing when cold, Accelerator pump in carburetor not working-- Float leval to low.
Unless it has been modified, the engine should be equipped with throttle body injection.
As far as my knowledge goes the fuel pump should be inside the gas tank. Which means you will have to drop the tank to replace it, unless there is an access panel either under the back seat or behind the seat in the trunk.
