Hello, My name is Pim and I'm from The Netherlands. We bought an E12 minivan with an E10 engine, but we can't get it running smooth. This is the problem: The engine can start with the choke on, but when we switch the choke off after a while, the engine stops running. With the carb on choke, the engine runs fine. This is what we did already: - cleaned the carb - cleaned air filter - cleaned fuel tank, lines, pump etc. - there is fuel in the float bowl al the time - cleaned, adjusted and checked ignition - looked for air leaks (false air) On the carb we found an electrical choke or something like that. (see attachment, red arrow). We think that is our problem. On this solenoid there is 12V al the time. When we remove the pin inside the solenoid, the engine can idle without the choke but do not respond on the throttle. With the choke on, everything works fine again. What is this solenoid and why is there 12V al the time? I hope someone can help us out here.
