Does a choke need to be gapped on an automatic choke

Hi tim21391,

Many automatic chokes are adjustable and sometimes need to be readjusted as the thermostatic coil loses its springiness over time. As a general rule, the choke plate should not close tightly and should be open very slightly when the engine is cold.

We need some more information to help you out more. Please email us at: research@haynes.com and include your manual number and identifying information on your vehicle.

Thank you for your interest in Haynes manuals!
