V8
Chrysler Mechanic: roybelding, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

ok, this is the lean burn system. it has the control unit on the side of the air filter.

if you pour fuel in the carb and it runs then it has spark.

doe the choke close when it is closed???

you will need to check the fuel pump for supplying fuel to the carb. also, check all the rubber hoses from the fuel tank to the pump for cracks or breaks

What's the full name of control unit
Chrysler Mechanic: roybelding, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
