So i have an 87, dual carbs, and just rolled it over to 100,000 km's.
recently when i turn my car off and take the key out it starts dieseling
only when the engines cold though. i had the carbs cleaned out and its still dieseling.
anybody know what it could be?
thanks

Check to make sure your timing is set right. Also, what speed is the engine idling at? The 2 most common causes for dieseling is timing that's too far advanced and too high of idle...

when its cold my idle can get up to 2500
My fast idle is set at about 2200-2300 then kicks itself down to about 1500-1700. Definitely check your timing tho. If its too far advanced it will diesel like that too...

Did you ever get the dieseling figured out?
