Question about 1986 kawasaki KZG 1300

Open Question

Hi I have kawazaki z1300 6 fuel injected with 2 person sidecar. Think I may have some sort of fuel problem. While riding lost power, engine kept running but when tried to rev it the motor then wanted to cut out not rev. Managed to get going again with help of choke. Got down the road lost power again same thing got going again didn't miss a beat until went to move it at home. Fuel running through the filter okay so I feel the problem may be after that. Fixed the kill switch, bypassed it. Thanks. DotLeonard

SOURCE: Engine cut out under revs but will idle

fueling problem. its not getting enought fuel from the carb. check the pipes, jets and floats.

SOURCE: engine missfire

this sound like a crab deal for sure. when you cleaned the carbs did you take out the main and needle jets.if so carb cleaner my not work you will have to blow these jets out with with high pressure air and make sure you do all for carbs.

let me know how it gos

SOURCE: engine runs, but it will not rev up past 2000-3000 rpms,

are you turning the choke off after its warmed up? most will not run with the choke on and warmed up.

also try running it with the gas cap open to see if you have a vent issue in your tank. if air can't get in, then gas can't flow.

if not a choke or vent issue, then try this. turn the petcock off and then disconnect the fuel lines one at a time going into the carb. start with carb fuel line #1 disconnected (and the rest connected) and in a coffee can, turn petcock on and ignition too. fuel pump should come on momentarily and inject some fuel. see how the quantity looks. reconnect the line to carb #1 and repeat for carbs #2 - #4. your looking for a decrease in fuel to a couple of cylinders.

if all looks fine, i would then focus on the carb floats & jets. have the carbs been off for a good cleaning lately? modern fuel breaks down quickly and could cause a gumming condition in the carbs. spraying the sea foam or carb cleaner into the carbs is bypassing the everything in the carb bowl (but it means the spark plugs are ok) so there could be an obstruction. i would look there first.

if uncomfortable removing the bank of carbs, you can try a quick fix first. with the petcock closed, open the drain screws of each carb and let the gas drain out. go and buy some yamaha carb cleaner (liquid in a black bottle) at a yamaha motorcycle dealer. mix it in a separate container with gas as recommended. close the drain screws on each carb. pour the mixture into each fuel line feeding the carb and let it sit overnight. DO NOT POUR THIS MIXTURE INTO YOUR TANK. its not a fuel additive, but a cleaner that will not harm orings or gaskets, but it will not ignite with a spark plug. open the drain screws the next morning and let the mixture pour out. reconnect the fuel lines to the carbs and test drive it.

if that didn't work, then removing the carbs for a good cleaning is my next step. good luck.

SOURCE: Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 (not FI) funky sound after shut down

Hi, Yes it is an electric fuel pump and the ticking is the pump working. So if you hear the ticking your pump should be OK. After turning off the petcock and running the carbs dry the next time you turn it back on you should leave the kill switch on and turn the key on and wait till the ticking stops, turn the key off and back on and wait for the ticking to stop again. You should do this a couple of times to make sure the system fills. Normally you should always use your kill switch to turn off your engine. Also under normal conditions you will not hear the ticking as it only ticks a couple of times to fill the system once it is full. Good Luck to you, This should Fixya!

SOURCE: Poor throttle response below 4,000 revs.

The carbs need to be re-tuned for the exhaust. It doesn't seem like like it needs to be rejetted just idle mixtures adjusted. this would be something that a mechanic should do because there are four carbs and they need to be syncronized with each other

I have a John Deere 445 and I have recently replaced the fuel sending unit clean the fuel lines out cleaned everything engine will start for a brief second when choked but will die shortly after


not familiar with this engine... I think it's fuel injected. if so , did you purge the fuel line of air? many tractors with injection, will purge if you turn the key to the Run position for a minute or two

What generates fuel injection pulse on a 1994 geo metro base model? I have replaced alternator, TBI injector, and ECU. Checked relays, fuel pump and filter. Feed and return line are clear. On startup I get...


The PCM (ECU does that) its part of what is called EFI, electronic fuel injection, it's a computer, that gets inputs, and uses those inputs to injector perfectly at ALL times.
what engine? 3cy. or 4? is it TBI injected or MPI injected
1 injector or 4? we need to know that first.
does it run on test fuel for 3 seconds.
when was last time it run perfect, last week last year. what?
first off stop guessing, you can go broke that way.
want to diagnosis it? the steps are easy. if fuel is good..
  1. fuses good.?
  2. CEL lamp glow keyon, if not ECU is bad. or bulb , it must glow.
  3. compression over 150PSI on all cyl. (w.o.t = wide open throttle)
  4. do a 60k, mile tune up yet, filters, spark,. and cam timing belt.?
  5. if not, why wait?
  6. 6: is spark good tall cylinders not just 1? is the timing way off if yes, the cam belt did slip, do not fiddle tiiming, fix the belt. first.
  7. ok it now magically runs on test fuel for 3 seconds and sounds great. so we do fueling last.
  8. fuel pressure tests are next. takes $20 gauge got one?
  9. ill stop here, as fueling tests are long play.l..... ask. if you can get to step 9,

I think all 94 metors are TBI engines, one injector
up to 1997 inclusive.
then the 1998 offered 4cyl, MPI injected engine.


have you learned how to use flash codes (DTC) yet?
insert jumper , key on, see CEL lamp glow and flash 12s'
the crank for 5seconds, see if the flashes go to 41 or 42?
bingo if yes.
the TBI allows the mech to watch injection, at the TB.
with top hose off. you can watch it inject as person 2 cranks.
does it?
the ECU brain cuts fuel at the first sign of:
  1. lost spark (to stop fires)
  2. lost Cmp sensor, same .
  3. TPS ground wire busted and ecu things foot is W.O.T (super secret unflood mode) (or TPS cracked in half inside)
or total loss of fuel pressure.

Hi I have a 2004 mustang gt and we change the fuel pump and fuel filter and then we check the injectors with a tester and bank 1234 on the passenger side is out and 5678 on the left side is on and ain't no...


Sounds like the power splice to bank one is lost. By injection tester, do you mean a noid light?

Do you understand how the fuel injection circuit works? When the ignition key is in the on position, all of the injectors will have constant battery voltage applied to them. Bank 2 (#'s 5,6,7,8) is good- they are all pulsing. The same power wire is spliced to all 8 injectors. The other wire at each injector is the ground wire, and each ground wire goes separately into the engine computer to be internally grounded for a split second. That is the pulse of the injector, and is when it sprays fuel into the cylinder.

So think about it. Your 5,6,7,8 is working right, but 1,2,3,4 are not pulsing. Not likely 1234, all 4 separate ground wires, just went bad like that. More likely that 1234 not getting voltage to them through that common hot wire. You can check it real fast: check for voltage on any injector connector on bank 1, with the key in ON. The inj. connector only has two wires, a power and a ground wire. One of them should be hot in on. If no power on bank 1 injectors, trace it back to the engine harness. Somewhere, the power wire will splice off between bank 1 and bank 2.

Do my 1996 gmc box van engine fuel injection or carburetor


Look.
If you see a fuel rail or a short-throat throttle body, it is fuel injected.
If you see a carburetor... well, I think you get the point :)
From the year (unless it is a non-U.S. model), it is most likely FUEL INJECTED.

My car, polo 1.6 2003 starts den dies almost immediately


why does the blue box say 2005 swift and 03 polo?, confusing , so I will answer in the generic. (any modern car)

any engine dies for vast reasons, I have a list of 50 .
but breaks down to 4. (in pure physics) Otto cycle engines, GAS.

1: lost DC 12volt power to the EFI system( electronic fuel injection)
2: lost compression on more or all cylinders, 150psi min. is a goal.
3: lost spark, weak spark or mal-timed spark.
4: bad fueling, (too little , or too rich fuel injection)

The ECU works hard to sustain running, via idle speed control valve
and spark timing tricks.
when the above 4 go bad, the ISC function fails and the engine
stalls.
so does, skipping 60,000 mile tuneups. that cause any of the 4.

1991 geo storm gsi,Was going down the road fine and all of a sudden It cut off and cannot restart it what could be the possible problem or cuses.


same answer for all cars made 1920 to now.
never restarted ,ever ? gee , a little hint...?
1: lost engine compression hot, (gee forgot to do the 60k serviice/)
2: lost spark , yes, check spark at all 4 cyl. if bad check coil spark.
3: lost fuel or too much fuel called flooding.

one removes a spark plug, it drips of fuel , say all 4.
flooding.
crank motor at WOT, wide open throttle to clear flooding.
if the spark is good and the spark tips are dry, then try test fuel
if car starts and dies. then you lost injection.

easy huh> with the above you know exactly why it fails.
compression bad
spark
fueling.

1991 i think is TBI single injection engine, i can look it up but
no i wont. we need to do the tests first to get there.

Why my car 2003 suzuki aerio Sedan turn off when im driving


ill add guesses. stalls. does it restart, easy????
1: lost electrical power to the EFI system.
2: lost fuel pressure
3: lost spark , lost fuel injections.
4: egr leaks, (clean and get it to close, it must close at idle or the engine will stall. 50k mile service point in the manual.

I have just fitted a secondhand 306 turbo deisel engine into my 306 as the old engine blew up. This new engine was slightly different. The problem i'm having is that the injection pump is slighty different...


Hello. Questions: 1) Is the solonoid that you are referring to on the fuel bar, or the fuel line? Usea test light to determine whether there is power to it. If there IS power, the solonoid is cutting off the fuel. If there is no power to it, provide power to it and see if the fuel is getting to the fuel bar. 2) Can you hear the fuel pump running? 3) What was the difference between the old engine and the replacement? Is it the year model, or something else?

Hi There,

If your car was running good and suddently it became like this and getting then I think your car either having a carburator or fuel injection problem. If it is a carburator I sugess go to shop for carburator cleaning and check for leakage, if it is a fuel injection then replaced fuel filter and one of the fuel injection cleaning stuff in gas tank for cleaning those fuel injection......
