SOURCE: misfiring and backfiring engine cutting out at low revs

take your breather cover off and see if that affects it if you went to a larger jet size you may not be getting enough air to comply with the extra fuel you're dumping in i would suggest drilling a few holes in the breather lid if it straightens up when you remove the lid. i ran into the same problem when i rejetted an artic cat 400

SOURCE: will only run with full choke and absolutely no throttle.

Carbs gummed up. Need a serious cleaning or a full ruubers replacement/rebuild kit. Gas turns to gummy when left stting in the fuel bowls.

Use a couple of cans of Sea Foam.. best stuff in the world.

I would say that your bike may be running a little lean. I usually replace the jets on all my bikes as soon as I get them as the emissions requirements mandate that the manufacturers pass stringent emissions tests prior to the dealer selling them. Some bikes wont even idle or run, especially off road bikes from places like California. and in these cases you must re jet it is a must! I even throw away or drill larger holes into my air cleaner cover.

Good Luck!

No wait this means that the mixture is too lean in gas. When you activate the choke it 'chokes' the engine of air. This is why on a really cold day the choke must be used to start the bike or to pull fuel through on a morning. So what ever you do don't make your mixture leaner in fuel.

2004 300EX honda wont run without choke on.Cleaned carb bowl and fuel tank but still as soon as choke is taken off it stalls.It also back fires through the exhaust.

Hi, most probably you must clean the main jet on your carburator . When you use choke you are inceasing the petrol ratio in the fuel mix by reduciing air ; and you need that because the main jet does not alow petrol to flow
good luck

1996 isuzu rodeo keeps reading #2 misfire runs good xcept when cold it hesitates most times or jus occasionally hesitates then the check engine light flashes and its guzzling gas i only got 50 miles on a...

A misfire alarm typically means the coil pack mounted above the sparkplug indicated in the misfire had gone defective.

To test it, swap the coil pack with another cylinder, and see if the misfire goes from #2 to the cylinder you put it on.

If the misfire continues to be on #2, then consider changing the sparkplugs.

I hope this helps.

1. Leave the bike alone, do not retry to start when that happens.
2. Make sure the reserve petcock and choke is set open when starting the bike.
3. Make sure battery is in top fully charged condition.
4. If you have not run it for a long while, then have the carb cleaned as the jets maybe sticking due to dirt built up and fuel line clogging.
5. Make sure your spark plugs, plug wirings and coil are clean and in good conditions
6. Have your ignition timing chain checked and ensure is set properly.
7. No air leakage anywhere before or after carburator lines.
8.Think that is the main cause, now try again. Cheers

Misfire #1 cylinder (autozone scanner) I changed all plugs, boots, and #1 cylinder coil. Went back to autozone and says misfire #1 cylinder. should I try replacing #1 injector now?

inspect the sparkplug plug first!! After engine is running for 20 sec (while misfiring), pull your #1 sparkplug and check for fuel. If there is no fuel replace the injector!!If there is fuel, post a comment for more help!!

My 2006 honda fit is misfiring

I am unfamilliar with the problems these cars have as they are rather new. but i would bet anything is still covered under the manufacturer waranty.

generally tho mis firing is caused my a few things, an incorrectly gapped sparkplug, timing could be off, lose plug wires or a broken distributor/cap.

check those and call the dealer to find out if it's still coverd
