And I was having very poor high speed performance. The bike could just barely hit 70-75 but I was loosing speed going uphill (even on slight grades). I could maintain 55-60 MPH but anything above that and the bike just didn't have any power. Probably needs a fuel system cleaning, Stu. Drive-train? Not likely, based on what you said. However, if the RPMs are rising without an increase in MPH, well... that's a different story. What won't help: High octane fuel nor octane boost. Your Honda should do fine with 87, and 93 ain't gonna clean the crud out. What may help: SeaFoam (from the auto parts store) may clean things out fairly well. I've had good success with it in situations like this, but it may take several doses to see improvement. Standard dosage is one ounce per gallon of gas. New spark plugs won't hurt but you may not notice any difference. What would be better: An all-out attack on the carbs, including disassembly, soaking in carb dip, re-build kits and a good synchronization. BTW, a decent carb-sync kit can be had for around $40. I'm glad you have a manual - lots of guys try to work on their bikes without 'em. Wacko Rolling Eyes It's like bashing my head against a wall... Oh... welcome to the forum!!!,,,

Hello all I have an accent 2005 CRDI. It starts in the morning After a little ride It stubborns to start and I can see lot of smoke and the mechanic says it is fuel injector problem. Please advice .


Venkata, According to Injectorrx.com: "
Fuel injector symptoms for bad, faulty, dirty, clogged, or leaking injectors are :






  • Starting issues


  • Poor idle


  • Failed emissions


  • Poor Performance


  • Engine does not reach full RPM


  • Increased fuel consumption


  • Rough engine performance


  • Surging and bucking under various throttle loads


  • Smoke from the tail pipe


  • Engine Knock or Detonation which can lead to catastrophic engine failure


  • Pollution"



Venakta: I have had very good luck with a fuel injector cleaner sold by Advanced Auto called KX44 but some people like Seafoam. It is a cheaper place to start than with a mechanic.

I have a Mitsubshi LDV 200i bakkie,the feul sufficiency is very poor.Fuel pressure is ok,but to the injector its very poor


May have clogged injectors. small particles clog injectors and sears has a method of blowing out the injectors and adding some heavy duty cleaners to the fuel system that loosen these obstructions up and allows them to greatly improve performance. After they did mine my mitsubishi ran sloppy and misfired. I took her on the highway and kicked her so to speak a few times. a few pops later it broke loose and ran awesome again.

Engine failure


When a catalytic converter is coming apart on the inside, it can restrict air flow and power, and it usually happens or gets worse when the vehicle has been running long enough to generate a lot of heat. Once it cools down, the symptoms can completely go away until you begin to drive it again. It's one possibility.

Mileage problem


Hi Patrick, you can start by going to smaller main jets untill you notice poor performance then go up one size, and the usual suspects are:
1. Excessive use of enrichner system.
2. Enrichner valve not seated or leaking
3. Dirty air cleaner element.
4. Restricted fuel tank vent system.
5. High speed riding style.
6. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
7. Loose jets.
8. Float level too high.
9. Plugged or restricted bowl vent.
10. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
11. Vacuum piston assembly malfunction.
12. Plugged air jets or passages.
13. Excessive accelerator pump output.
Good luck and have nice day.

I'm having trouble with my '98 Olds Intrigue with less than 12,000 miles. The transmission slips, (The guy at the dealer says "flares up") when it first starts in the morning and after riding on...


No, do not junk it, those transmissions (4L60) are all over the place, and with only 12,000 miles the engine and body are probably in very good condition-you have a 3.8 engine, and that is a very durable engine. You can get a trans out of a car at a junkyard, check Craigslist or ebay, and find someone who would install it-probably could do the whole thing for less than $800 if you do a little research. I have a 00 Intrigue with a 3.5, 135,000 miles, and it is a great car-I just drove it cross country from outside Philadelphia to Los Angeles, in 2 1/2 days (2900 miles) and got over 30 mpg-that car you have is worth saving in my opinion.
