Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FXD - FXDI Dyna Super Glide

1 Answer

Lost power started skipping going down highway at 70 mph

Felt like bike was running out of gas even though I had just filled up. I pulled off at first exit and bike knocked off at bottom of exit ramp. Thinking I had gotten bad gas I switched to reserve and it cranked back up. It continued skipping so I switched back to the regular tank and rode it home. I changed gas and plugs but it still is skipping

Your problem suggests bad gas(water) or ecm(engine control module) problems, have a cycle in the shop last month acting the same way replaced ecm after draining the fuel and seeing the gas had no water in it check gas first good luck.

I have a 1999 dodge ceruis. I quit running going down the highway at 70 mph. It was very low of oil. Do the have a ciser shut down system


You are fortunate that the engine still cranks. If it overheated when it shut down it is possible that some of the electrical components may have been burned out.

And if you did permanent damage it is possible that now the engine is not cranking fast enough to start.

Good luck.

My 1998 chevy blazer died going down the highway, what is wrong?


Multiple possibilities. Will start with easiest/cheapest. You don't mention check engine light (that would give codes), so I'll go with the same issue we've had with newer Blazers. That would be the ECM in the distributor. When ours started going bad, it would cut-off intermittently. Well one day the intermittent was terminal. Anew ECM, for the 2.8 V6 (1987) is approx 45.00. You would have to price it for your vehicle based on year and engine size. The worst case scenario is loss of timing gear. (That happened on our 67 Buick with 300 V8). Another thought is what happened to a friend. He's putzing on down the highway when his 88 Pontiac Grand Am simply quit. His computer had bit the big one. Those are the only things that come to mind, other than running out of gas or your alternator had quit charging your battery and the battery finally lost enough power to spark the plugs.

Bike shuts off enxpectedly


Just a guess, have you checked the ignition coils? One may have a crack in the wound wire. When it warms it opens then closes when it cools down. There are a number of things that can cause your problem, but I would start with the ignition system.

Motor cutting out


Without getting too specific, there is/was a recall on this exact problem. The bike would just cut off... completely shut down, no power even if you were flying down the highway at 70 mph. Check recall list with HD for more info.

2000 FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic: 2001 heritage is blowing oil through breather.why?...


All Harleys after the year 1992 will have some engine oil carry over visible in the air cleaner though there is a diffrence between excessive and normal although if you get on your bike and travel down the highway at a constant 80+ MPH you will find that you get more carry over to the air cleaner then you would normally riding at lower speeds and this is simply cause you are running the engine harder and therefore you will see more carry over at the air cleaner. Now to be sure, make sure your bike is sitting on level pavement and in the case of a Softtail model it should also be upright and level pull the dipstick from the oil tank and wipe it clean, reinsert fully into the oil tank and remove it again and look to see if your oil level is roughly halfway between the check marks on the dipstick. If so then yes your oil level is good. I would now remove the air cleaner cover and wash any excess oil out of it and if your running a stock air filter and you have had a oil carry over issue for awhile now, then replace the air filter, reinstall the air cleaner cover and go ride the bike for around 50 miles and by ride the bike I mean go ride it like in town and on the highway without being abusive to it or excessive speeds(70 mph). Then remove your air cleaner cover again after your test ride and look to see if you have any oil carry over in the air cleaner. if so let me know and we can go into further detail.

Shuts off spits and sputters


Check for vacume leaks first. Rubber lines..gaskets to carbs ect. Also remove and blow out your fuel line to tank and change out filter. Hope this helps.:)

Bogging


Next time it happens, pop the gas cap and see if the problem stops. Can you hear/feel air rushing in when you open the cap? If you can, you have a clogged gascap vent. You can try to take it apart and and clean/fix the one you got, or just buy a new cap.

Chinese scooter


Hey Mj, you seem to know your stuff--it sounds like the drive belt broke. You can get a repair manual on amazon for approx. $15 plus shipping. It would be a great help w/ pictures and how to maintain and fix the scooter. But if you're going to dump it, u probably shouldn't invest in it. I don't know the exact model you have, but belts seem to run $20 and up. Unfortunately I don't know how difficult it is to replace. I'm sure it"s a $100 fix @ the shop.
Good Luck! countrycurt0
