Hi, got a great running little 205 1.4 peugeot cabriolet, carb engine, mechanical fuel pump, 52k on engine..
Car starts from cold perfectly every time, car runs flawlessly as well. But on a warm day if you've driven it, leave it for 30 minutes or so it will turn over for a while, then a dud...... dud.... dud.. dud.. dud. dud turning over, little fires, then gradually bigger fires then eventually it will run! (slight smell of fuel) and it fires up, and runs perfectly! No stuttering or anything.
Only thing i've done so far is wrap the fuel lines in sticky back aluminium foil to protect them from heat.
I did hear the fuel pump can cause this, if it's slightly on it's way out?
Anything else i can try? Thanks.

No reply? Knowing politically correct pistonheads i must have said something racist in my post. Had a 'good' look through it but i don't seem to have mentioned the war or anything?

They're more concerned about the type of gearbox they have wink.

Does this have a mechanical fuel pump? If so try turning it over next time for a few seconds before touching the acellerator.

Otherwise I'd be whipping off the air filter and see if it is flooding the engine.
