Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I just recently bought a 2007 kymco MXU 300. Under acceleration the whole bike jerks, any ideas why? Also when I start the engine and put it in gear it stalls, once again any ideas?

Its primarily under heavy acceleration when it jerks, it is getting worse and more frequent. It's also not every time I start the engine, put it into gear and it stalls. Obviously when it's cold but also when it has been used and is warm.

SOURCE: will not start when engine warm

Sounds more like your ignition module is getting hot and not working. I'd go there first before replacing the ECM. You can remove the ignition module and most NAPA stores have the ability to test them for you. Make sure they test it at least 5 times. This way it'll simulate starting and stopping.

SOURCE: stalls and wont idle when cold

Re the trooper. You have a couple of possibles. The most likely is the glowplugs or glowplug relay. Don't be fooled into thinking glow plugs only heat to start - the also do whats called postheat. That is to raise the cylinder temp until the block is warm. IF they are not functioning (clip a light onto one whilst switching the glowplug on to test the relay) this is common.
Most likely is a stuck EGR valve - stuck open so running a very lean mix when cold. Its two bolts on the inlet manifold, pulls out and looks covered in soot - it should push in and spring out. Can be cleaned in petrol or alcohol or with compressed air.
More remote is possible you have a faulty injector...only really testable by an engine centre...

SOURCE: 1994 LT1 Engine "balks" under acceleration intermittently

Your fuel pump or your catalytic is plugged. have it tested with a infrared gun it will tell you if the cat is bad and if it is replace it test the fuel pump for fuel rail pressure it should read 50 psi then hold to 20 psi for 1 minute.. Also check to see if the intake plate is dirty and if it is do a top engine clean, buy GM's top engine cleaner and run it threw the engine, if you have carbon buildup the compression and cause the car to run bad and the knock sensor will not be able to adjust time. I know this sounds silly but these three things will cause your problem and so will a bad fuel filter.

My 2007 Kymco 500 MXU starts and idles fine but when you hit the throttle it dies instantly. Ran fine then this all of sudden happened. It did sit for almost a year. Any idea's???


It may be as simple as a bad fuel filter. if the filter is plugged, you may get enough of fuel to idle car, But when giving it gas. there is not enough fuel reaching engine, to keep it running. Its worth a try! God-Bless!

Why does my 2007 Chrysler 300 start to **** when accelerating around 60 mph and when I take my foot off the gas pedal? No brake was applied.


you need to check you plugs and wires on the car also looking into changing your fuel filter may be a great idea , just a normal tune-up on the car would help this out dramatically

My car will not shift up gears


the point is that there is an onboard reporting system that you can have the fault codes read from
That report indicates exactly the area if the fault and saves money
so have the codes read at any parts shop or autozone for free and then have that only fixed

Geo jerking under acceleration


They come with a 3 or 4 cyl engine, but either way it would not take much to make it run rough.
Usually a miss-fire under load is ignition related.
Have you checked or replaced the plugs, cap, rotor, and wires ?
If not I would start with an inspection of that first.

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph
