    Icon7 Basic Info on Carb Tuning (Pug 1990 205)

    Well the title states it all
    Does anyone know of a good site, or can give me a quick rundown on the tuning of the carb on my car. Its a 1990 Automatic 205 Pug, nothing out of the ordinary, just stock standard.

    When warmed up, its idling a wee bit too high, and under heavy aceleration, bottoms out. Is there a way to tune the carb back to factory settings, so I have a ground to tune it properly from?

    Thnaks for all your help
    Cheers

    If it is a 1990 it will be most out of the ordinary and fully imported.
    Are you sure it's not a 1992 local model, in which case it will have mono point injection? Is it a three or five door?
    If this is the case then a workshop with the correct diagnostic equipment should be able to check it out.
