Question about 1987 Honda XR 600 R

My 1987 XR600 starts up fine cold but if I shut it off when it is hot and try starting it up again, it wont start till it is cool again.

It has spark and everything else to make it run but it just wont start back up untill the engin has cooled off. what is the problem?

SOURCE: 1987 XR600 stops when hot

Take your carburetor apart , clean it, and inspect the insides. My similar experience found the slow jet in the bottom of the bowl and a previous cleaner having installed the piston spring in the car top incorrectly. Put everything back to the stock settings (air screw). Double check the intake boot for cracks or separation. The problem is probably very simple , but disassembly will be required.

Engine runs well for 40-60min then shuts down.


sometimes when a spark plug or the coil is going bad it will run till it gets hot then die. after it cools off it will start and run fine. till it gets hot again. replace the spark plug if that don't fix it you may want to start looking for a coil.

1987 f 150 6 cyl starts and runs till hot then wont till cooled off


Probably a bad ignition coil or a bad TFI module (the ignition control module). Much testing could be done to find the faulty part, but I believe if you take the TFI module to a parts store, it could be tested.

Wont start when hot


The starter is effected by heat. Does the motor spin just as fast when trying to start it when the motor is hot? If it cranks real slow it is the starter. If it cranks over at the same speed it is not the starter.

Get an account on a mini cooper forum and post the question there. you could also try a small spray of starting fluid into the air cleaner. If it starts and stalls then it is a fuel delivery issue. If it does not start then remove a spark plug and verify that there is a spark as the motor cranks over. Check for any blown fuses.

1987 Ford f150 shuts off and wont start until engine is cooled off


To clarify, you said it runs for 20 min then quits, and it won't start again until it cools off. Have you checked for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure right after it quits running ?
These models have an ignition module attached to the side of the distributor that has a history of failing when hot. The coil and the pickup inside the distributor can fail too. Could also be a relay.

1987 XR600 stops when hot then won't start. Bike starts ok, with air screw all the way out will idle for about 3-5 minutes then stops - also stops if I rev the engine. Once it's warm won't start again...

2000 silvarado 5.3 vortech runs good for awhile after it gets hot it shuts off and wont crank until it cools off


do you mean wont crank over and start till it cools off? if thats the case it sounds like you got a bad crankshaft position sensor,,thge sensor is fine when its cold and warm but when it gets hot it goes open and the cars computer cant see the rpm and shuts the engine off,and then when it cools off the sensor works again and the car starts and is ok till it gets hot again,if thats the case thats what it is,,,hope this helps,,,about $100 for the part

1987 Jeep YJ Hard to start hot


Sounds like a bad distributor control module. You blew-up your muffler because there was no spark.....lots of fuel in the exhaust....then an intremittent spark......BOOM!
Once the module cools off, it works again, because the crack in the circuit board re-connects....until it gets hot again, and opens the circuit........no more spark. Replace the module.

Sometimes their is no spark to the distributor and it wont start


usually the ignition module will get hot and wont work proper till it cools down again .. you might check it when it is cool to see if its got fire from it .. Then this should tell you something about whats going on. thanks Jerry and holler if you need more. When posting please let us know what year your car is and also engine you have it is more helpful answering your questions .. thanks again ...
