Why did they remove the manual choke from cars?

Now how am I supposed to start my car on a cold morning?

    How year is your vehicle? Manual stifles offered approach to programmed gags on carburetors over 60 years back. Carburetors offered approach to fuel infusion in the mid 1990s. The best approach to begin a vehicle with a programmed gag that isn't working is to eliminate the air cleaner and push a stick or pencil down the carburetor throat

    All cars have automatic chokes. The early ones weren’t so great.

    The manual choke was part of the carburettor.

    Carburettors have been replaced by electronic fuel injection in order to meet emissions regulations, from the 1970s in the US and the late 1980s/early 1990s in Europe.

    Electronic fuel injection automatically controls the amount of fuel required to start on a cold morning, so no manual intervention is required.

    Just like any other invention..........over time things are improved for easier use.

    As for cold mornings..............even those living in Montana, use something to plug their car into to keep it warm on cold cold nights.

    All cars have automatic chokes. The early ones weren’t so great. I had a 1984 car that had an auto choke but I replaced it with a manual because I put a bigger carb on.

    It started much better. 

    That was my last car with a carb , they’ve all been fuel injected since.

    Manual chokes are gone because carburetors are gone. Fuel injected vehicles enrichen the fuel mixture for cold starts using temperature sensors that tell the PCM to pulse the fuel injectors longer which gives the motor more gasoline.
