Runs strong but will not idle
My car has 100000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
If the car will not idle then you may have a carburetor mixture problem or ignition timing and distributor problems. If the carburetor needle and seat is leaking, it may be flooding the engine at idle. I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your car's location to diagnose your idling issue and let you know what needs to be done.
