if it is open loop ( O2 sensors) check the sensor condotion, connections etc.

Reload the files onto the Power Commander, insure they are the exact files for your ride, the wrong files can affect operation and gum up the O2 sensors.

I doubt that jump starting your machine would have cooked your fuel pump.Does the machine still turn over if not you may have cooked the E.M.U if so the easiest way to check the fuel pump is to unplug it from the loom useing two suitable lengths of wire conect the pump directly to the battery if the the pump emits hum it is working & you will need to check your wireing for possible burns you say the fuses all checked ok I can only assume that you only cheked the fuses by eye in which case it is not allways easy to tell a fuse is blown by visual inspection the only proof positive way is with a multimeter. Another simple test is to bridge the fuse holder first remove the fuse then useing a short piece of wire (no more than fifteen amp you dont want cook the system if there is a fault elsewhere) bare the wire at each end & place it in where the fuse normaly resides turn on the Ignition if the pump comences to function discard offending fuse insert a new one & of you go. hope you are in the wind again soon

SOURCE: 1987 kawasaki ninja zx10 wont stay running when warmed up it

you didnt mention anything to do with the carbs so try some "Sea foam".... purchase at Autozone ($10) pour 1/3 can to two gallons fuel and drive it around for a good 10 to 15 miles and get on it once in awhile, ride safe..if the carbs are dirty or clogged... they wont be after your ride..there might be a little hesitation your first couple of miles till it starts to took my bike 10 miles before it cleared out..bump start your bike if you have to to get it going and keep it going till it clears up.

Loss of power when hot

Have you tried to change the fuel filter. This may be due for a change, or have some contaminant slowing the fuel down.
Also have you tried a fuel additive to clean the fuel system.
Try adding some methylated spirits. This will mix water with petrol and take it out of your fuel system. You can add 1/2 pint or 300 ml to a tank full of fuel without any change in performance. You do not need to do this often.

1993 honda accord acts like running out of gas step on gas pedal and it runs ok for about .5 mile does it again

check for plugged exhaust system, it could be that a pipe has collapsed or the catalytic converter may be plugged up. check back pressure at the o2 sensor ( req' special tool) or drill small hole in exhaust system just ahead of the converter and use heavy duty fuel pressure gauge. Reading should be no more than 2 1/2 psi. If pressure is greater install new exhaust system starting w/ converter. If back pressure is ok, check fuel pressure and go by book specks. P.S make sure to weld up hole in exhaust after back pressure test. If converter and rest of exhaust checks out.

Poulan 3314 Chainsaw Dies when I press throttle. Have done following: 1. Removed carb. Cleaned with Laq Thin. And blew out with comp.air. 2. Cleaned & Checked fuel filter. 3. Cleaned Air Filter. 4....

Check the muffler for plugging. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel when pumped several times. If it takes a lot of pumps to pull fuel, replace the fuel filter or maybe the primer bulb if it appears to be hard or cracked. #4--reset fuel jet 1-1/2 turns? You say further on that the H and L jet needles have not been moved. These two jets are the only adjustable fuel control there is. Did you mean the idle speed screw? Did you get a snappy blue spark at the plug when you checked it? The caps on the two tanks are usually not directly vented--there are vents inserted into the tank casting. Try spraying some starting fluid into the plug hole, install the plug and pull through. If pops several times, concentrate on the fuel system. When cleaning the carburetor, you should remove the two jet needles to wash out those cavities. Spray carburetor cleaner is a better cleaning agent for carburetors than lacquer thinner. The lower chamber diaphragm directly controls fuel within the carburetor and it must be flexible and no holes! Go to: http:// for some good carburetor theory for 2-strokes. Hope some of this helps!

I have a 1998 Mercury Topaz that starts to miss under acceleration and can hardly make 100k per hour. Ignition system is ok. The problem seems to be in the fuel system. New fuel filter installed and...

Even tho the ignition seems ok, I'd check the ignition cables to the plugs. Sometimes these break down over time... it will idle and drive ok, but when you need power for a hill, or acceration, that's when the wires faults start to show up.
A quick test is to put the car in drive with your left foot on the brake FIRMLY while you press the accerator... if the miss and lack of power shows up, it's usually the ignition cables to the plugs.

1991 XJ6 cylinders 5/6 not firing

Check for spark at the cylinders you mention. Unplug the wires from the spark plugs, put a spark plug in the end of the wires, and attach the body of the plugs to earth, or an exposed metal part of the engine. With the engine running, you should have spark at the plugs. If no spark, get the ignition system tested. If there is spark present, and you think the fuel is ok, then the compression must be at fault. The things that are required for combustion are: spark, fuel, and compression. Get a compression test done on the engine, but first check for any vacuum leaks in the inlet manifold around the cyl 5 and 6 area.
