Sprint stalling when stopping

Post by Sprints31988 »

Evening,

Managed to wake the Sprint up after the enforced lock down.

Started really easily and ran well but on the run home started to stall as I stopped at traffic lights and roundabouts.

Any thoughts ?

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Mark.

Could be dirt in the idle jets, or stale fuel.
A bit of fresh petrol and a good blast could clear it, or the jets can be cleaned fairly easily without a full strip down.
Getting near time to hibernate the cars isn't it, seems like we've not even got going this year with all that's gone on
Giulietta JTD 170
145 QV
Lancia Delta integrale
Lancia 2000 Sedan X 2
Clio 172
Lancia Flavia coupe 1.8 1963
Lancia Y10 FIRE LX


I'm bad with people things
But I should have tried more

Hi Kev,

Yes I’ll give her a blast with some fresh fuel.

It’s been a strange old year and the chap who owns the barn where I store her had a knee op, covid and pneumonia !!!

But yes soon be that time and big plans for 2021 instead!
