My tractor loads up at idle bad how do I repair


if its a gas powered engine , id be looking at the low speed /idle jets in carb , also can be a miss matched float /bowl arrangement in carb (if parts were ever changed) , a super dose of auto grade fuel system cleaner sometimes saves a ton repairing and rebuilding on these , especially on infrequent used engines that sit for long times

1997 acura cl 2.2 revs up to 1500 rpm and down to 1000 rpm just several seconds after start


Cars are design to run at a higher idle at start up to warm them up quick. There is a sensor that reads water temperature and tells your car's computer how fast to idle. Your RPMs seem slightly high but not out of the norm. Does idle ever drop to around 600/800 after about a minute? If not, your engine temperature sensor maybe defective.

RPM run high and slow to drop down


There could be two problems i can think of here. First would be a computer problem. The computer might be telling the car to run at a high speed. A problem like this might be fixable from your local garage. A problem like this could be expensive. Second, as engines age, they natually tend to idle higher. This is a normal occurance. This is accompanied by a decrease of gas mileage. For me, i went from normal 26mpg down to around 22mpg. A problem like this can be fixed by using fuel additives aimed at high mileage cars. I have used fuel injector cleaners, and that has brought my car back to her glorydays of 1996. I hope this helps, if not let me know.

Try adjusting your air/fuel mixture screws. Turn them all the way in and turn them back out 1 and a half turns. This will base line you. Double check for vacuum leaks at the carb. and intake. Spray some WD 40 along the intake where it meets the heads and see if your engine idle changes. If it does, replace you intake gaskets with a good set. Replace carb. mounting gasket. Check for any unplugged vacuum ports. Once you're able to idle it down to 1000 rpm's, turn your mixture screws in until the engine stumbles and turn screws back out until the engine achieves the highest rpm and turn in again only at a 40 rpm drop.
