Car runs great just wont Idle after it warms up..............

Post by Red hot pony on Sun Apr 01, 2012 12:55 pm

74 beetle wont Idle after it warms up. I took it to the shop and they adjusted the timing and the choke. It ran good for that day and now its back doing the same thing. I read something about a idle screw but have no idea where it is. Question

There's three settings that affect idle that you need to get right and get them right in order. A quick write up can be found here: http://www.midsouthvw.com/TechTips/tech_tip_Carb%20Adj.htm

My 66 wouldn't idle either and it required a rebuild. Removing the top of the carb revealed a bunch of crud in the float chamber. After tearing it down and soaking it 24 hours in carb cleaner, rinse, blow the passages clear and reassembly, I followed the set up steps from the website above.

Remember - if your blowing out the carb- blow OUT!
Don't blow the crud deeper into the carb!
