What would cause it

4 Answers


sounds like the choke mabe not working right. Or the eccelorator pump in the carb is getting bad and letting the gas leak back down. I would check the choke first


Or just may just need a simple tune up disb cap and rotor plug wires and plugs


and a fuel filter and air cleaner filter


1994 should be fuel injected, it is possible that you may have leaking injectors, when it is first started does it blow black smoke out of the tailpipe for a short period of time? You might have the codes pulled, there could be something in memory that would help with diagnosis. like a temp sensor or air charge sensor.
