    Question starts then stalls

    hello all im new to site.. got a e- reg caddy. been running great but just recently it keeps stalling.. it will start up ok then stops after 10 mins or so. when restarting the revs are really slow even with foot right down. black smoke churning out and it sounds like a tug boat. chug chug chug.then when temp hits half its ok .but eating twice the fuel. have changed carb but nothing doing.2nd hand...its a5 speed 1600..petrol ..any hints or help???? thanx..

    the auto choke should be retained by screws ,take the air box off the carb and look inside you will see the butterfly that is connected to the choke via a small rod make sure all moves nice and free .the choke unit can be rotated so as when engine has warmed up choke is off. if the butterfly doesn't move as engine temp increases choke unit is probably faulty. your best bet is to fit a manual choke easier to start and you use a lot less fuel.
    hope that made sense si......
