Had a simliar running problem with my 02 FSE 400. The bike would start and then run intermittently coughing etc. It turned out to be the fuel pump relay located in the airbox area. These are not expensive to replace at 7.00p. Alternatively if you cannot get a relacement immediatley go done the car breakers yard and raid a few engine bays like i did and got a few spares for free. The standard seimens part V23073 is a bit prone to vibration damage. I found a Japanese made DENSO equivalent that was alot more reliable. Cars they were in are BMW 5 series, Toyota Corrolla. Happy hunting (:-)

The only issues I have had with my '02 Fse400 running wise have been with the charging circuit and only because of loose/broken wires. They run terribly if they don't have proper (14.4v) voltage. At the end of the day they are just another motorcycle if your dealer can't fix it find a better mechanic.,,,

Just the other day, I finally received the answer to this problem with my '06 Rainier CXL. The front gear pack (in mine) needs to be replaced. Vehicle is driving AWD, all the time. Expensive repair- $1600. Mine has 93+K miles, the engine is in awesome condition. To repair or not to repair... that is my struggle.

Ford Focus 2005 - cold start backfire - runs great after 5 mins, when hot

White Smoke out the exhaust, is usually a sign
of coolant & most likely the start of a bad head gasket

At this point your use of the car should be curtailed,
to prevent any further damage

You should not use the car at all, until all issues are
diagnosed & resolved

Plan on using other means of transportation

My lt1000 turns over and while turning over backfires. does not start. Started backfiring a couple weeks ago while in operation. would backfire, engine would die, wait a few and started again. finally,...

The engine should be an OHV type. You could try adjusting the valves under the OHV cover. Kinda like the valve lash on cars. When the valves are at rest you can set each one to about .004 with a feeler guage. You can look on youtube for a video one adjusting lawnmower engine valves. Seeing it is easier to understand then reading it.

I hope that this helps you get it fixed.

Check your kill switch first take the small wire off the the ignition coil you could have a short I would not waste money on a wire harness once the small wire is off the coil thats all it can be is the coil if its not firing if its fuel thats another problem

After starting and shutting off several times the truck runs lean

O god sell it quick!!!!!! jusk kidding I had a simlar prob. with a grand prix. start by changing fuel filter. not to sound like an idiot but sometimes when we get smater with car we forget to check the basic. don't know if this will fix it but it a good cheap place to start. next i do a comprsion check on each cylinder. I'm not sure how to do it my friend does mine for me. if there is a big difference in the cylinder it means you have head gaset, bad rings or hole in cylinder. or something in that area. ther probly more people here a lot smater than me that could help you out with this.if all are ok and get about the same reading. then i would guess that you have an elec porb. wich is hard to find could be something like a coolant senor give the wrong reading which tell the compter to give more fuel which alows it to kind of flood ( usually this is show up on your hand held testers) but I WOULD START WITH THE BASICS. I hope tis may get you started in the right direction
