Toyota pickup starts but dies after 5mins

well first of all is it older or newer if its older it will be more simpler like if it is carburated it could be dirty float bowl on the carb check your fuel filter it could be clogged not allowing enough pressure when you step on it your fuel pump could be going out it could be pumping but not enough could be dirty air filter if its newer it could be your idle air control valve or your idle air temperature sensor theres a lot of things to check it could be your crankshaft sensor going out to

Kawasaki ninja 750r (1987) will not sit and idle, I've tried the turning the idle pin up which does nothing, it will stall out when I'm riding completely, and it accelerates extremely slow, and...

This is the car section, so you may want to repost this in the motorcycle section.
I would think the carb is too lean, either from lack of fuel from the tank, or dirt in the carb. You could run with a partial choke to verify this.

Just changed map sensor fuel filter idle control valve and when you press the gas it hesitates like its bn starved think its a bad injector all the vac lines are connected checked relays still having probs...

check the fuel pressure and volume with a gage and check to could be a bad tps sensor.if it was a bad injector it would run rough and not feel like its starving for could be that all the injectors are dirty and need to be cleaned or if too dirty replaced.

My honda civic manual carburator is not properly working. it won't start if you will not step on the gas. what should be the problem? idling is also not balance.

check your fuel filter. and your pump. be sure to give the carb a good bath with crab cleaner to rule out clogged hoses or plugs

Engine will start but wont idle

has it always been on premium? you may have to advance the timing a little to get it running right on premium if it was set for regular before.

I just bought a 77 chevy motorhome with a 454 in it. it idled great, drove great at first, even when hot. took it out and opened it up, and then died. now it wont idle. timing?

almost sounds more in the carburator. if this motorhome sat for a long period of time, when you opened it up, it increased the fuel flow in the bowl of the carb, therefor may have stirred up dirt and varnish. id check there first. if it has a holley on it, if it "coughed" or backfired through the carb when you "opened" it up, it more then likely blew the power valve out
