When I'm riding at speeds of 55 to 60 mph, my Cavalcade runs fine but at about 70 mph the motor just stops like it ran out of gas. After it sit for a few minutes and a little choking, it will start. Can this be the fuel filter, gas line or fuel pump or maybe something else?

This is a typical fuel stravation at tht speed,time for a tune up and carburator cleaning, fuel line and the fuel pump check and prolly overhauls.

Good luck.

1986 cavalcade 1400 has a leak from behind the case. Upon closer inspection it seems to come from a boot that goes from the tranmission back to the rear driveshaft. It is not gear oil it is motor oil....


You have an oil leak from the engine.
If you cannot find where the engine is leaking, remove the chrome cover infront of teh rubber boot you mention, 4 bolts, run the engine/go for a ride. See if you can trace the leek. Airflow while riding can force the oil away from the leak and show up elsewhere on the engine.

I have 2006 scion xb and when driving the rpm stays around3500-4000 when running 65 mph can it be modified to run lower rpm


3500 is about normal for an xb at 65 mph. My previous ride was a pickup and rolled at about 2000-2500 on the highway. But the XB's engine is way more "tightly wound". Your rpm gage should run at about half of of your speed...ie: 70 mph will be about 35 (3500) rpm, 80 mph will be about 40 (4000) rpm. Freaked me out when I first got the thing, but after researching it Ive found out that with a stock engine it actually runs more efficient at the higher RPM's. The 06 boxes won't redline until 6000 rpm, so unless you are driving 120 on a frequent basis you're good. You can probably have it modified to run lower, but you will lose the awesome gas mileage and overall it is not going to improve the way it runs, and would have no benefit............

2002 avalanche, 168,000 miles, vibration at 30 mph and 70 mph under load. Noticable at 30, very noticale at 70. about a 5 mph band at both speeds. Not noticable in remainder of speed band including over 70...


I'd guess you have a tire out of balance, it sets up a harmonic around 30 to 35 mph, and at twice that speed, or 70 mph. I suspect if you drove it at 120 to 140 mph, you'd find another one. Could also be a tire that has a belt that has failed.

How many miles on this set of tires, did you get a lifetime road balance on them? Hazard warranty? How soon before you need new tires. Need to take all of these into account, but need to correct the problem before you have a tire failure and a wreck.

Since it ran fine before you "fixed" it, go back over the things you changed. Put the old spark plugs back in it. Double check all spark plug wires and ignition connections. Put the bike in a dark area and run it at night, can you see any arcing anywhere?
