Pendulums? what are they

I posted a problem on my 2000 zr7 about fuel in the air box I was told to check to see if the Pendulums in the chamber of the carb were adjusted properly. I am just wondering if somebody can add to this and help explain more. Thanks

They are called fuel floats. they float on top of the fuel in the fuel bowl and are attached to a valve that closes the fuel supply from the tank when a certain fuel level is reached inside the fuel bowl. Fuel level is crucial to air/fuel mixture and overflow can end up in the air box - more likely inside of your engine cases. To ckeck the float level consult your repair manual for instructions.

Iv got spark but it will not start

Fire, fuel, air. If you're missing one, the engine won't run. You have spark, or "fire" Now check for fresh fuel (a wet plug) and finally air flow to from the air intake filter to the combustion chamber. If everything checks out, you may have a timing issue or internal engine damage.

I`ve just changed the oil on my zr7 and there is a really strong smell of petrol in the oil any ideas why this is ???

The injectors are "leaking down" when the engine is off. This is putting raw fuel into the cylinders and it is leaking by the rings on the pistons into the oil. Since this dilutes the oil it can result in excess wear on the engine, replace the injectors soon!

I took my 2001 olds bravada to advance auto to have a service engine light checked they checked it and told me it was a secondary air intake malfunction code then they erased the code after that my car...

Well, the secondary air intake malfunction has to do with the air pump I read. Water can get into the air pump in some models and the pump would have to be replaced. However, I have heard that some OEM pumps have a short hose that accumulates water sometimes, causing a recurring problem.

Also, there is sometimes a 20 or 30 Amps fuse that controls the pump.

However, I think, that even though they cleared the code at Advance Auto Parts, and it wouldn't start, that the no start condition is not related to the air pump problem, since the air pump problem is more of an emission control to reduce pollution and doesn't feed directly into the combusiton chamber.

I think that you should check the fuel injectors to make sure that they are working. They should click when under pressure with fuel, and allow fuel to enter the combustion chamber.

Maybe check the fuse for the FI or fuel injectors.

It seems like your vehicle is getting spark since it runs briefly when you spray brake cleaner into the air intake.

Toyota Echo Automatic 2000 model. Stalls at low revs and shudders when taking off slowly. Replaced spark plugs fuel filter and air filter didnt seem to make any difference. Any ideas?

Sounds like a fuel problem. Check fuel pump and fuel rail. Do a fuel line pressure test. Try cleaning inside of throttle body really good and also the TPS at that location. There's many things that can make a car run bad.

My 50cc 2 stroke engine won't start, it has fuel flow into the carb, and decent spark, and good compression, how would i check flowing into the cylinder, and repair it if it's not? (not the right...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of ideas:
  • fuel to the carbs - as you posted checks good;
  • fuel inside the carbs - loosen the drain screw at the bottom/bowl. Check for quality / quantity of fuel;
  • fuel into the combustion chamber - check the plug (would be wet).
For a no start 2 stroke engine with your described condition, a possibility to consider is too much / unburned 2T oil in the lower combustion chamber; remove sparkplug, air dry (or use compressed air).

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
