My thought is that your mechanic does not know the difference. Calling the throttle body a carburettor, to someone who may not know what a carburettor is, is not simplifying anything.It's the thing with the black cap on it - it's a 0.9. I don't know much about cars sadly. My mechanic referred to it as a carburettor which is fed by injection. He might have been trying to simplify things for me.
Can you post a picture of the unit?OK, so what happens is, when the car turns on it runs for about 15 mins, smells a lot of fuel then shudders to a stop if the revs aren't high enough
The mechanic thinks that there might be a pinhole in the accelerator pump diaphragm, and he thinks that someone has tried (and failed) to change it since one of the screws is broken. He can't source any parts (we are in the very far north of Scotland)
I'll try and get a photo tomorrow. I think it might look like thatDoes it look a little bit like this:
