    Hey All,
    Im new to this group so I hope i don't come across as
    the total newbie...:) Well, basically I have a 91' civic 3-door
    hatchback (with carb) Car was perfectly fine until a week ago where it
    failed the local VRT (high emissions) and had the carb cleaned and
    passed the vrt the next day. Within a few days of that started to
    smell fuel when I opened the I started the car and checked
    the carb....and saw fuel spilling out of the carb fuel pipe...Got that
    changed, but the latest symptom I'm experiencing is an intermittent
    rough idle and stalling. Also sometimes when using the manual choke
    the throttle seems to stick at high revs. The problem seems to be
    choke related as when I start the car without choke (warm already) car
    works fine....Any ideas would be much appreciated
