Smile stalling when hot,hard starting

these are same symptons i had with my scenic 2 litre 8 valve, it was the engine coolant tempreture sensor, the one that controls the fuel injection,i presume yours is fuel injected, mine was located in the thermostat housing, there were 2 sensors, green, and white plugs, the green is the fan, the white is the EFI sensor, it was overfueling, due to a faulty temp sensor, started okay cold, but played up, when warm, including sudden increases of revs, due to to much fuel, finaly flooded and stalled, then hard to start. just realised yours is carby, not EFI, but it still sounds fuel related.
