Mike6 Posted April 8, 2015 Report Share Posted April 8, 2015 My car is an early carb turbo so thinking it is a carb problem have posted here. The background is car was running fine about 6 weeks ago. When I put her back in the garage noticed a weep coming from one of the front rad hoses. Decided to replace all front end hoses and clean everything up. Ran car in garage a few times to get fans operating and bleed system. All fine, infact car started first time after 6 weeks. Took car out for a run yesterday and got just down road when it started juddering as I changed through gears. It then let out a real crack - like a motorbike backfiring and not the normal popping and banging you get with these cars. Thinking it might need fuel managed to get car to garage and filled up. Car then ran fine but only kept her out for another 20 minutes. This morning exactly the same thing at same spot a hundred yards or so down the road. Revs probably about 3000 it juddered a number of times then let out this really loud crack. Engine carried on running so at lower revs got car home where it ticked away nicely on the drive with rock steady revs under 1000. The only thing I can think of is carb jets as nothing else on car was touched and it has been in the garage and was running fine when last used. Does this seem a sensible place to start. Thanks Sorry should have mentioned Stevens carb turbo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
