    My Toyota starlet former engine is 3k yang problem na yan ay sa carburator. Bili ka ng carburator cleaner spray mo while reving. Or kung marunong ka mag Choke using your hands mas maganda then spraying. Pag ganon pa din pumunta ka sa Kamuning Road maraming Carburator Expert doon sunod sunod sa daan. Pa oversize mo na din yung Jet for extra power di naman lalakas sa gas ng husto. :-)

    thanks guy for considering helping me. most of the factors you mentioned where quite familiar to me except the "overheating ignition coil" can you elaborate on this? what causes it? and if it is remidiable by myself?...... I alway bring my vehicle to a mechanic and he alway manage to fix the problem but it re-occurs after only a couple of use or if i run the vehicle roughtly on rought road. The mecanic wont allow me to watch how he fixe's it; he just tell me to comeback after several hours....I just hoping to avoid unnecesary trip to the shop.....thanks again.

    PS: I might try the carburator cleaner first were can i buy it, and wat is the brand :-)

    Their are two type of carb cleaner, spray type direct on carb and fill on tank * any DIY hardware shops..

    overheating on ignition coil occur on improper ignition timing the, effect is super hard starting during long trip or harddrrive due to intense heat build up on coil, that will result on resistance on voltage..

    quick remidy when this occur is place basang basahan on ignition assembly para lumamig..then try to start..>>hehe
