Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a coolster 125cc atv that will start and idle for about a minute then die. It will crank back up but do the same thing over. I can shoot a very small dose of starting fluid to it and it will run and have throttle but if I just let off the throttle it will just die again. Any help will be appreciated.

SOURCE: iac and throttle body

Cleaning the throttle body is no big problem; simply remove the air filter box, and remove the tube from the air filter box that connects to the throttle body. Spray carb cleaner on the flap valve and all around the flap valve. Regarding you idle condition, cleaning the Idle Air Control valve (IAC) may do you no good. Once it fails, it is usually done. You prob need to install a replacement IAC. It is UNDER the throttle chamber, you will see it when you remove the air tube to the throttle body. I change several of these a month. Common failure.

SOURCE: spray a shot of starting fluid in throttle body

sounds like fuel starvation.
if its an electric pump listen to see if it spins when ignition on.
i know this may sound stupid but check there is fuel in tank, it could be a fuel sender failure which shows fuel when empty

Sounds like your fuel pump starting to die. It is not getting enough gas under heavy acceleration which is 100% fuel pump slowly dying. At start up it might not be building up enough fuel pressure to feed the system but the shot of ether and engine cranking helps pressure the system just enough for the fuel pump to trickle the gas and run the engine at low rpms.

This sounds like a fuel pump issue. Check the fuel pressure and for spark at the plugs after it dies. If fuel pressure is low then you will need to replace the fuel pump. Feel free to respond after these items are checked. Thanks

Check for fuel pressure and check for spark during the no start condition. Also check the crank sensor, it is located behind the crank pulley mounted in the engine block on the 4.3 L engine
I hope this helps.

It is one of 2 things fuel pump or Crank Shaft Position Sensor. Best bet would be the Crank Shaft Sensor, and what that does is tell the computer where the crank is and when to fire the right plug at the right time
