Are there any warning signs to let you know if the carburetor needs to be rebuilt. I had my power steering pump replaced, and the day after,the car stopped running. The mechanic said first it needed a tune-up, then he said the sparks & wires were gunked up because of the power steering fluid all over them. Then he said it was the timing chain was stretched and had to be replaced. Now he said the carburetor needs to be rebuilt.

     All those things are a possibility on a car that old I would recommend to go and have a second opinion if you don't feel comfortable with a mechanic you're currently dealing with
