Has the bike been sitting for anytime ? Is it 'old' petrol ? Petrol goes off unless a stabaliser is used, takes on a jelly appearance and a varnish smell. 1/4 throttle seetings are controlled by air/primary jets and any long lay up of the bike may cause those jets to block up. Try draining the carbs, reseal them and once you disconnect from the petrol tank fill the carbs with a quality carb cleaner and leave overnight (or longer). Drain carbs and reattach petrol line.

I have only 35 to 39 psi gas pressure reading what can cause this. I have replaced the filter plug wires coil packs. when stepping on gas pedal there is alot of hessation

check the tps(throttle position sensor) voltages and grounds. one wire is battery voltage the other is reference voltage and the third is ground. the reference voltage should get higher smoothly as you move the throttle without any dropouts anywhere in the full movement from closed throttle to wide open.

Kawasaki Brute Force 650 4x4i atv 2007 cold start problem seems to flood when trying to start. Once it starts runs like a champ and restarts no problem

Install new spark plugs and go easy on the throttle when starting. A power valve squirts extra gas every time the throttle is twisted. Twist too often when starting and the engine floods. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Check gages sign comes up and car stalls out, causing it to shut off. Someone mentioned it is the idle position that maybe too low... also the gas pedal seems like it gets stuck sometimes and when I push...

Get you one of those carburator/throttle body cleaner and spray the throttle. ( Where the gas pedal cable is connected on the engine, that is where the throttle is). You would have to remove the intake hoses attached to it then work that throttle manually as you spray cleaner to it. This should get rid of the gas pedal getting stucked and maybe the low idle problem as well.

1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette. At times it seems

a bad tps sensor will cause: transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on takeoff, surge while cruising down highway. to check, remove connector from tps, use a ohms meter and probe center and any one of the other connectors,move throttle slow. if it jumps or does not stay steady while moving throttle, its bad. if the needle on ohms meter moves good then the tps is ok. move throttle plate slowly.

Gas throttle not working. Found loose part that connects pedal to

Turn car off, push the round throttle under the hood all the way open. Route cable on top and put in the hole, release throttle. That should be about it.
