The carburator is just like your lawn mower if it sits a long time with gas in it they get gumed up.
I had to clean the carburator on my small riding mower I use to trim with.
The age of this car you will probably need a kit as they will tear getting apart.
The cleaner isn't as good as it used to be. If your wife has an old kettle she doesn't use any more you can boil the metal parts for a while.
