Thanks Joe, I'll see what it looks like. Any good way to test?
Car been starting up instantly when cold prior to this fiasco.

This is how I think the car died in the first place: While turning the mixture screw for the first time last night, it sort of because "stuck" in the down posistion, holding the airflow plate slightly open, causing the engine to studder, and then die. After this, it simply wont idle.

How can I get the mixture screw back to about where it should be. Is there a reference point of some sort?
