OK first off the car has and had several problems that I'm slowly working on. Bought the car Feb 2006 didn't want to run much past 5 miles from home in the mornings. Would stall when coming to a stop, low power and jerky when driving, sometimes would clear up sometimes wouldn't in the next 10 miles. Always cleared up in the afternoon. I messed around with the engine off and on until it ran fine (HINDSIGHT, MORNINGS GOT WARMER). Drove all summer long with rare problems. Blew and had replaced head gasket after which the car was running rough. Front float on carb needed to be adjusted (some fuel leakage around screw). Last two mornings the car is back to it's old tricks (MORNINGS ARE NOW COLDER). Runs OK for about five miles, dies unless I hold my foot on the accelerator when stopping, very low power while driving, clears up 2-3 miles later.
The car has new rotor/cap/wires/plugs/timing belt.
I probably need a rebuilt carb or a rebuild kit (leaky screw).
Possible culprits are timing advance, fuel supply or?
