Assume you mean 1995? In which case it will be injection?

Even if it is carb, adjusting the idle and mixture screws only affects the mixture at idle, it will not cure a rich running over the full rev range problem, which is more likely to be a carb fault of some sort.

Is it illogical? It must be Citroen....

Oops! it was 1995 but not injection and of course it is a Citroen ZX, I probably have to get a recon kit ie jets etc.Many thank for your reply.Shep.

It will be injection. More than likely it will be fitted with single point injection. All petrol cars built from 1993 onwards are fitted with catalytic convertors. The injection system is more accurate at monitoring fuel/air than a carb.

Thanks for the reply, I do have a Haynes manual but it does not have my model carb.Regards Shep.

Shep,

Watch my virtual lips -- as DD said, your car does not have a carburettor. It may look like one to you, but it is a single-point fuel injection unit. Mixture is controlled by an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) in response to inputs from various sensors on the engine. There is no adjustability - if it is running lean or rich it requires knowledgable diagnosis, and rectification could involve anything from a dodgy connection, through a replacement sensor or sensors, or even an ECU fault.

As these components can be very expensive correct diagnosis is essential.

Regards, Adam.
Whatever is rightly done, however humble, is noble.
