How i clean the TPS sensor of a ford escape xls 2011 2,5 Lt l4 mecanic

it sounds like it's the idle air valve this controls the idle and drive rpm's when you step on the gas does it sometimes at idle go up & down by itself repeatedly? it could be something hitting the throttle and when you press down on the gas or shift it is knocked out lowering to normal idle/rpms, the tps is on the throttle body and is connected to the throttle lever and most likely right on the other side of the lever a little switch with a electrical plug on it search it so you can see what it looks like if you don't know already they are sealed and can not be cleaned you must replace it try checking with the car in park engine running and raise the idle by the throttle lever if it goes smooth up and down return to rpms that's not it if it races or sputters and then raises up that's it or it could be both units are blown out needing to be replaced

You need to tunes up the carbs. The small jets in the carbs can easily run at idle when partially clogged but can't sustain a high rev without bucking the bike.

When you cleaned up the carbs did you also clean out the low speed idle jets? They are the first thing to plug up when your bike sits with out gas stabilizer in the tank. The bike runs great at speed but will not idle properly.

Does not run other than idle.

Make sure you have fresh fuel in it
Check the fuel system for contamination (water or sediment)
If the bike has been laid up then check the carb jets & airways are clear

Vn800 running fast on tickover

I am not sure what you mean on the "running fast" statement. If idle speed then turn the idle screw outward to slow down the idle.

The backfire is caused by turning off the ignition key when the bike is at high revs. let it idle down THEN turn it off. The backfire is there because the carb idle circuit is active anytime the piston is in motion. Gas goes into the cylinder as the bike revs down then a hot spot in the exhaust pipe finally ignites the built up gas. There is your backfire.

Is the running fast question answered? Give me more information on the problem if it isn't.

Please rate this answer. Thanks njv6!
