Choke? Vide
PostSubject: Choke?   Choke? Empty25th October 2015, 22:03

Whatever the weather the car seems to stay on the choke for a long time its a 51 reg Cooper.

After about a mile it is OK, its not particularly cold at the mo so wondering if its a problem or normal.

Thanks

Keith

Probably a sensor - could be the temperature sender unit. If the car doesn't think it's warming up the ECU will richen the mixture. Are you able to read the diagnostics with a code reader?

No, I am not car savvy, I don't have a code reader.

Can I change the sender unit?

You could - although I don't know how much they are or how easy it is on your car but you could change a lot of things so it's better to test first.

You may be able to check it with a multimeter - worth a look on some forums.
