I try using a combination of choke and pressing the pedal down, sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. it does get frustratin especially when i think i got it running then the engine stops and i have to start all over again. but i have found that the harder i revv the engine the less it stalls on me

i hear what u say about revvin but if i press the pedal gently it just does not stay running. after a few seconds it will stall out. its only when i press the pedal further down will it stay running. no idea why and dont have the money to buy a better car at the moment!
sarahsmith1987 wrote:yeah i try all sorts really, pressing the pedal up and down with choke, holding pedal half way down etc until it eventually starts up. I think that i found the right combination though - choke half out and pedal just over half way down, when it does start i press the pedal down a little further to try to keep it running
