Cold start problem, `automatic choke stuck

Asked by Feb 19, 2017 at 09:10 AM about the 2000 Ford Bantam

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1600i bantam and it has developed a problem whilst being unused - it
seems to have the automatic choke stuck open, so coldstart. The car idles but
is extremely rich with black fuel smoke when you rev it. Revving it high also
does not work and it cuts out when the revs lower.
