Tomberlin crossfire 150 parts

Cart is not getting gas. It will idle and run when I spray gas from a bottle but it will not run on its own. It sat for over a year before I purchased it. I put fresh gas in and cleaned carb as much as possible without rebuilding it.

SOURCE: Car was running fine, now won't crank. It turns over. Some told me timing chain, distributor, injectors, spray carb spray in throttle body or something like that. Can you please help me?

You are saying that the engine will crank or turn over but will not start? If so then you must fine out if the engine has both fuel and spark. after that you can get into the right direction. You can use starting fluid to see is there is a fuel issue. Read the directions on the can. Using too much can harm you and/or your engine.

SOURCE: car wants to die at idle and slow rpm speeds

If they used a spray to clean the carb, then all the junk that was in the carb burned off on your plugs. You probably got a lot of black smoke out of the exhaust when you first drove the car away. Check the plugs. They are most likely gummed up with the residue from the carb cleaner. Either clean the plugs or invest in a new set. This should ensure that the car fires on all 8 cylinders. Driving on the highway, you'd be less likely to notice the problem since you need less power to move through the higher gears. If this doesn't solve your problem post back and we'll diagnose it further. Best of luck!

Dirty air filter....Gunk in carbs..course spark plugs and wires. I would take the air duct loose from carb and spray bottle throttle spay directly in carb while accelerating gas throttle with hand.As the car tries to die down let go of the spray. Repeat 3 or 4 times. It will run alot better. Warning.....dont buy carburetor spray because it eats up your seals in carb......Remember buy bottle throttle spray only.

My 1992 gmc pickup is giving me a fit. It will only stay running if iv got my foot on the gas pedal,otherwise it surges realy bad and dies. The fuel has a weird smell.I've replaced the fuel...

his problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My tomberlin punisher 150 go-cart will not start what could be the problem its not the starter i think tis something electrical

check the spark at the plug, work out from there. without hearing it turn over, or even smelling it while you cranked it, I'm not certain... by that I mean... does it try to start or does it just turn over. is there a strong odor of unburned gas? these would all point to a lack of spark.

Shakes a lot during idle. I have already replaced the EGR valve, AC clutch, serpentine belt, belt tensioner and three motor mounts. It stops shaking and runs well once you press on the gas. Does not shake...

Try taking it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. At the very least, you want to know what the idle rpm is set at.

It sounds like you may have a leaking Intake manifold gasket. You would test for this with a water mist from a spray bottle. While the engine is running spray around the intake gasket and any Vacuum lines you see. The RPM will change when you find the leak.

I see you want to slow down the idle. If the idle speeded up on its own, that is a sign of an Intake leak. There is a part called a throttle position sensor,TPS, which is really your accelerator. It has a slight RPM adjustment slot on one side of the 2 mounting screws. Both screws must be loosened to move the part.

I am not understanding why, if the engine runs better when you press on the gas, would you want to slow the idle down (which is like not pressing on the gas)?

Anyway, I hope my solutons are very helpful to you and that you can fix your car. Maybe the scan at Autozone will help you.

I have an 1989 F150 with the EFI 5.0L engine with a high idle problem. In park it idles between 1500-2000rpm. In drive, it drops to 1000-1500. I've replaced the idle sensor and that didn't help. What else...

Your intake manifold has a leak. Check all the hose connections to see if you have a hose off.
Disconnect the EGR hose and temporarily plug. If it helps it is the EGR.
Take a spray bottle of water and spray around the intake manifold while the engine is running. When you find the leak it will draw in the water and stall the engine or at least affect idle.
Another part is the TPS, throttle position sensor which is on the drivers side and about the size of a cigarette lighter. It has 2 screws and 1 electric plug.
Have Autozone scan your truck for free.

Start the engine and get it up to operating temperature. Take a spray bottle with water in it and spray the vaccum hoses and around the intake gaskets. If the water affects your idle, you possibly have a very common intake gasket leak. That motor is well know for vacuum leaks around the intake gaskets. You can also try spraying carb cleaner, but be very careful with that. Hope this helps. Sounds like a vacuum leak to me.
