I have been having problems with using my manual choke on my 1989 Automatic Ford Fiesta 1.1 (67,000miles). It cuts out when I stop at a junction even after a good 10 mins of driving with the choke out. Can you advise? I'm I using the choke incorrectly?

You must pull it out-and if set correctly give atleast 3 minutes and push it back in. Old school the choke plate should be fully opened in that time.

When its out you're choking it big time Note: The engine needs air just like us.

Your float in your carb could be stuck. Pull it of to see

Check the choke cable. Sometimes the choke cable sticks making the choke. Also it sounds like there is a gas problem or a stuck float. Check the idle adjustment.
