Teresa
Juneau
Alaska
Teresa’s Land Cruiser has trouble starting if it sits for more than a couple of days. It cranks, but won’t start--the battery dies, then she adds some gas to the carburetor, and it will start. The problem is likely a leak in the carburetor or a weak fuel pump. Teresa can try starting the car every day to avoid this, or she can install an auxiliary electric fuel pump.
