Asked by Cade_1002 Jun 28, 2019 at 07:06 PM about the 1972 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1972 be super beetle and we
replaced all the filters and line and the
carburetor is only getting a little bit of fuel
then it slowly trinkles off even with the
throttle held what could it be?

1 Answer


Have you tried cleaning the carb? Could be a clogged jet or carb is just gummed up.
