    I apologize, I am new on this site but my bike is a 1979 Honda cg125. In the past when this issue has occured it has been my idle, rapid acceleration would flood the carburetor except this time I did adjustments and there is no improvement. I took the bike to get washed and they used a power washer and flooded out the spark plug and then when they were trying to get it started they kicked it a multitude of times until the carburetor was flooded more than it ever had been. I drained it out but I still an't get it running smoothly like it used to.

As you have found a power washer on motorcycles is not a good idea as the high pressure gets into all electrical connection the best thing to do is get a can of crc and spray pull the connectors apart and spray crc as well as the spark plug lead cheers

Hi most likely the carb need cleaning or you have some water in the bottom of the float bowl. you can try this, there is a float bowl drain screw on the float bowl so if there is water it will drain out. this is just a first easy step if it works your good to go if not time to pull the carb and do a complete cleaning (note most do it yourself home mechanics will clean carbs and over look the most important part, you need to pay close attention to the low speed jet make sure it is not blocked and if it is unblock it i use copper wire strand if it is fully blocked the blow it out and spray through with carb cleaner.
I use Brand name carb cleaner ( Sea-Foam ) This is an excellent product for removing gummed and hardened fuel deposits it comes in can liquid and as a spray.

SOURCE: engine sputters and dies sometimes like its

I'd check two things: The carburettor and air-intake

1. Carb: Check the float and the main jet. If the float is not fully functional, it could let too much petrol into the float bowl and cause an overflow (also evident with petrol in the overflow tube/s). Otherwise, if your main jet has a clog in it, it could cause spluttering too. Does your bike idle well? If so, it's more likely not a float issue.

2. Check if your seat is depressed with rider on it. I've heard of instances where a heavy rider has managed to weigh the seat down through years of usage till it partially blocks the air intake. My own experience, however, is a disintegrated air filter that was sucked into the carb causing spluttering and general inability to start.

1995pontiac,firebird6cyl,sputters at 2000rpm

When you say "sputters at 2000 rpm" , are you referring to ANY time the engine is at 2000 rpm - meaning in Park, when you are just goosing the throttle, or in gear when you are accelerating, or at highway speed in high gear? If you are experiencing a "shuddering" in the engine at certain speeds/rpms - especially if these are speeds you regularly cruise at (long commutes at steady speeds), the problem could be in the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). They have a tendency to wear unevenly if you drive a certain steady speeds. Eventually, the problem would progress to an engine code, but it may occur without setting the check engine light.

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.

Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.
