YJ keeps stalling on me

Hey everyone, just bought my 88 YJ a couple of weeks ago and it's been running pretty good until a couple of days ago. It won't start up unless I give it gas and once it's fired up it will stall out unless my foots on the pedal. Never had any experience working on jeeps so I'm clueless. Already changed out the air filter and replaced the egr valve because of a leak. I took it to a guy to check out the carburetor and he said it was working fine. I'm not sure what else to look at and if I do know I don't know how to fix the problem lol. Anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

Try this link.. it should help you out. Is it the original carter carb? or is it an aftermarket carb? Either way there should be a choke plate adjustment screw to open/close.

first of all you need to see if the choke is working..unlike a fuel injected vehicle where you just turn the key to crank it,with a carb when it is cold you need to press the accelerator pedal to the floor and then release it to engage the choke.just do this 1 time and it should trigger the choke.then after the engine warms up for a couple of minutes you can just pat the accelerator and it will click the choke back off..this will only work when the engine is cold..try it and see,it may be okay
