SOURCE: car idles rough and when u hit the throttle it starts to backfire

There is an Idle control sensor that has likely gone bad, take it to a trusted mechanic or dealer and have them replace it to solve the problem--roughly $300 repair at a Toyota dealer

yes definately could be a fuel regulator problem. with the tank lifted. you can see the fuel rail and toward the left you can see a diaghram style fuel regualtor. there is a small vaccum line that goes to it. take that line off and check for any signs of gas moisture. ive seen this to be a consistent problem with alot of the 929's.

SOURCE: 2002 Dyna wide glide. Will not IDLE

not running for a year! You have a varnish buildup in the low end circuit of the carb. You will need to remove the carb and do a full teardown of the carb to properly rectify this problem. SOMETIMES we are able to free up the passages by putting SEA FOAM cleaner in the tank , fill her up with fresh fuel and ride through the tank and it will clear up. SEA FOAM can be purchased at an auto parts store and is sometimes very effective. 1/4 cup to full tank fuel.

What is the oil pressure at idle on 2001 harley electra glide

30-38 psi (207-262 kN/m squared) at 2000 rpm and normal operating temperature of 230 degrees F (110degrees C)

At idle it can be very much lower (10 to 15 is not unusual and can even be lower than that sometimes) as volume rather than pressure is the key in lubrication of the rolling bearings which these engine utilize rather than plain bearings. This is why there is no published idle oil pressure.

05 flht problem starting when it starts it fires right up the next time you try it might start might not wont stay broken long enought to trouble shoot it acts like it is not getting fuel

Good place to start.Put gauge on fuel rail an watch pressure.Maybe you'll get lucky and get reading when it's running to compare with what you get when it won't start.Of course it couldn't be something easy like a clogged filter,could it?

Running rough and wants to die

Have the fuel pressure at the fuel rail checked. If you just want to throw parts at it: Fuel filter by the tank first. Fuel pressure regulator next. Order of ascending expense and likely hood. Does the fuel pump hum louder lately? The fuel pump may be on it's way out. It's not getting enough fuel to do anything but idle. Why that is takes some investigation. Somebody like Auto Zone may check your fuel pressure. If the fuel pressure is good, bad spark plug wires are the next guess. Lift the hood and run the engine in the dark (take the light bulb under the hood out if it still works to do this) If you see little lightening bolts traveling over the engine you need new plug wires. If the fuel pressure is good, the wires are good, change the spark plugs. Good Luck!
