Question about 2007 Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTSi

Knocking sound from engine...

Hello, I had a 2008 model P180, which has completed 32k kms till date. From the past 3000kms, my vehicles power was not up to the mark. Fuel economy also dropped even though I ride it around 50-60kmph with periodic oil change. While riding on a fly-over single, it makes knocking noise even in 3rd gear at 4k rpm and feels bit difficult to climb it like it was carrying a load at the back. Engine gets over heated after riding about 15km and there is a rapid decrease in e.oil level. while riding on a level road also it makes knocking sound in 3,4 and 5th gear maximum at all rpm range. my friends are advising me to decarbonise the engine and check valve timing. I dont know what to do now. Please help me.

SOURCE: Engine gets off sudeenly while riding

There seems to be fuel stravation problem to the carburator....
Remove the carburator and thn remove the float bowl and clean the float pin and its passage...there could be some kind of dirt in the pathway and thus the obstruction of the fuel flow into the float chamber.
If your bike doesn't have an 'in-line' filter ....install one! this will help catch the dirt before it finds its way into the float chamber.

Hope this helps!

Tata suspension damage

You haven't provided enough information to even begin to provide a diagnosis of the knocking but from your tyre description it is clear the vehicle should have a thorough safety inspection and any unacceptable parts replaced and then finish with an alignment check and adjust.

Tyres wearing on the inside shoulders would indicate the front wheels are toeing out too much (or the camber angle is wrong) and a life of less than 1000km indicates the problem is severe. While maladjustment is possible, this sort of thing is usually caused by accidental damage or the serious wear of one or more steering or suspension components.

My bike having no power under 3k rpm and sometimes while riding under 3k rpm suddenly the engine ceases for a mere fraction of second and again resumes. what causes this?

Hi, Radha my gut tells me it is a fuel issue start with # 13 the following applies to carbureted also fuel injected models and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
11. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
12. Fuel tank empty.
13. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
14. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
15. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
16. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

2008 boulevard 1800 fuel injected engine. Engine starts to stall once warming up, 6 or 7 kms, at no throttle. Seems to straighten out if I throttle hard for 4 or 5 seconds. Bike had 1700 kms when I got it...

It does sound like you have dirty or clogged fuel injectors. The best way to fix that is to add a bottle of fuel injector cleaner into your gas tank and that will clear the issue as you drive the bike around enjoying the sights.
Good Luck!

Having ford mondeo 2006 model 200000 kms run till last week its had a good drive. while running suddenly got break down. its towed and in the auto carriage. they have changed all the spark plus, batter is...


The TPS (throttle position sensor) will cause the vehcile to stall and not start. To bypass the TPS hold the gas pedal down and start vehicle. If the vehicle starts either replace or clean the TPS. FYI--usually start-up sensors will not throw a code such as the TPS (pre-ignition system).

Hope this helps--

Engine idol knocking noise stalls while holding on footbrake

Hi portop,
Have the valve clearances checked, it could be tappits noise.....Has the vehicle ever been over heated? How's the power output from the engine, has it changed since you've had the vehicle? Does the sound disappear completely, or is the knocking sped up so it's faster and becomes hidden?

I think that it will be a good idea for you to have a technician listen to the engine, to make sure that you don't have a serious problem. Get two or three opinions

best regards Johngee10
