Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

When you turn it to auto and it slows down, Do you notice any surging prior to it stopping? I think that the idle circuit in your carburetor is partially blocked which is causing the engine to die when you select the auto feature which is basically just slowing the engine down while there is no voltage being used.
