On the drivers side of carb is the fast idle cam held in by a bolt with large flat screwdriver slot. Clean it and wirewheel the bolt do not lubricate (very important as lube causes sticking) on other side of carb is the choke pull off remove hose depress the center and put finger over the hose tab to seal it it should not come back out if its good if it releases replace with new one. Third possibility is that the electric choke solenoid is not working with engine running there should be voltage at choke wire connection if no voltage replace solenoid.
Oh and you also have to leave car run long enough for the engine to warm up before taking off.[/Quote:bace5d2c38]
I agree with Rodimus on the cleaning but a bigger explanation for the 'warm up' needs to be written.
The whole point of a choke on a carb is so that you can drive it when it's cold. With my 78 Volare, I it drives much better if it idles for 'a minute or two', still the acceleration doesn't get 'decent' for at least 5 mins of driving. Still, there isn't much point in idling the car till you reach 'operating temperature', the cars were designed to run before it gets up to that heat.
