How long has this car sat?
It sounds like the carburetor is flooding out. This is caused by the floats sticking. And thats caused by the vehicle not being ran often or for a long time. The choke will not open until the engine warms up.
Any luck as of yet?

SORRY, PHONE WAS PLAYED W BY 5 YR OLD. HOW DO I GET THE CAR TO WARM UP IF SHE WONT STAY STARTED? SHE HAS SET FOR A WHILE, THOUGH. HOW DO I PREVENT THIS WITHOUT LOSING THE CARB? AND, HOW DO I FIX THE FLOAT FROM STICKING?
you will need to rebuild the carb to solve the problem. After you rebuild it then it will run and the choke should work properly. If the car sets for long periods of time then the best way to keep the carb from gumming up it to dump a little Sta Bil in the breather tube for the floats after each time you run it if it is going to sit for any period of time.

this carb up? And what about adjustment screws?
You run the idle jets all the way in. Back them out about 2 full turns. Then after you start it you turn them in one at a time until the engine just starts to idle down. Then back the out about 1/4 turn. It is possible you will need to go out more than 2 turns for it to run correct.
stay started w/ out slight pressurw applied to gas. plus, there is a pinging noise from engine when accelerating. maybe timing?
