Choke Issues

I have a 1988 and the choke will not go off once the Jeep warms up. So once it warms up, I have to manually turn it off under the hood. Any ideas what could fix it? It eats up my gas and is really annoying when you stop at a stop light and it idles at 2,000 rpms.

Thanks!
Phillip

Do you have an electric or manual choke?

I don't think ether but I'm not sure. It automatically goes on with the throttle and used to go off once the engine warmed up. Now it just stays on.

If you look at the passenger’s side of the carb, the choke is mounted there.
If it's electric, there will be a wire attached to it.
You should have 12V when the engine is running. That is what opens the choke.
You can also adjust the choke by loosening the three screws that hold it in place and rotating it. If you search, there are a few good write ups.
It may be bad and is easy to replace. Most local part stores have them.
You can also switch to a manual choke and run a pull cable to inside the cabin.
