The 84 C10 has been perfect, as long as the choke wire stays on the choke... This morning, however, the oil / choke idiot light came on and stays on... It's never been on while the vehicle is running, so it got my attention. Not low on oil and don't hear any signs of low oil pressure... so I head down the road.
Once it comes up to temperature and I try to go highway speeds, it starts running like crap. The Choke is still on - of course it runs like crap.
I double checked, and the choke wire is connected to the choke.
I manually opened the choke, and the truck immediately idled down and sounded fine... and stayed that way until I hit the gas again. grrr.
I am clueless about how to troubleshoot this, as I have never messed with this issue before. Any ideas, tips, or pointers?
I've got to run errands - busy day... so I'll check back a bit later. Luckily, mom let me borrow my Blazer back. :-)
