Vacuum shut off valve


If it's a non-vacuum petcock, just plug the vacuum lines and use the petcock like a manual one.

97 sunfire tried turning key on 10 min than so on and ..... etc. this does not reset anti theft light flashes ,we do not have a key with a chip in it so what do you think ?? kelly


This 10 minute re-learn process only works if there is a small Hiccup or Glitch in the system. If that 10 minute trick did not work, it means that some part of that antitheft system is legitimately failing and would need to be fixed or bypassed. This link offers 2 different ways to bypass the system. Ive done both of these bypasses dozens of times, they both work and will not hurt the performance of your vehicle http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Fuil in air box getting in oil dr200se year 2005 have carb soaking now olny 500 miles cant be worn may be the dry rot o ring in pet **** so far all the diaframs good in pet **** and diafram in top of...


What you are dealing with is a vacuum petcock with a bad vacuum diaphragm , in this case fuel is bypassing the petcock via the vacuum line and filling the engine (oil) with gasoline.
If you have a standard petcock that is leaking (not shutting off properly) or just left in the on position a stuck float needle will also fill your engine (oil) with gasoline. This can happen with a clean carburetor and a good float needle. It just sticks and you have to change your oil. If you have the kind of fuel petcock that allows you to turn it off when not in use , always turn off your gas when not riding.
You will have to change your oil if it is fouled with gasoline. I suspect a vacuum operated petcock is at fault. With standard petcocks I have seen new motorcycles in perfect order stick a float needle ( Kei Hin Carburetors ) and fill there engines and air boxes with gas/oil mix. On vacuum petcocks the diaphragm that shuts off the fuel flow is usually leaking and at fault.

Engine cut out and took about 5 minutes before it would restart, I put the petrol tap to reserve although it had half a tank, it then started


What's happened is the fuel filter inside the tank that's connected to the ON fuel setting on the tap is clogged; leaving the petcock on Reserve won't hurt for now but eventually it will clog too. The best thing to do is to take the bike to a shop and ask them to remove the petcock, clean it and install a new filter...it wouldn't hurt to get them to flush the tank to get rid of the residue that is clogging the filter.

You could do it yourself, but unless you ahve years of experience working on bikes, it would be better to let a shop do it.

GSF 600 SV 97 fuel problem


If the bike will run with the choke on then you have a lean fuel/air mixture condition. Most common cause is a vacuum leak or faulty pitcock. Spray some carb cleaner around the carb mounts with engine at idle, if the rpms change there is your leak.
Your petcock should have two hoses attached to it. One hose is the main flow to the carbs. The other hose is/should be a vacuum hose that allows the gas to flow (when vacuum is applied). When your petcock is in the PRI position, this will bypass the vacuum hose. Leaving it in PRI when motor off could possibly flood the engine. Check to see if that vacuum hose is attached properly with no splits or cracks near both joints. If all is attached properly your problem is the petcock itself. It has a diaphragm and 'return' spring. Weak return spring, clogged petcock, damaged diaphragm can all cause your problem. Also, after you recleaned and inspected the carbs, were they synched... if not, this needs to be done.
Good luck...i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.
