Question about 2003 Yamaha YZ 250

2 Answers

2003 YZ250 engine coughs and sputters at high RPM

My engine runs fine through low and mid rpm's but when I start to open her up and it gets to the higher revs it starts to cough and sputter, almost as if I pulled the choke on during acceleration. I have done a comp. test and it was fine-160 P.S.I,my reeds appear to be fine, my sparkplug is very black but DRY, no smoking from exhaust except for normal output. I know my way around motorcycles but i'm stumped, could it be a fuel/carb problem, or an electrical/ignition problem? I hope somebody can help thanx

Fuel carburetor problem! it causes most of the spluttering problems i have encountered with mine so far!
it could have blockage and insufficient gas enters on it during high revs!

You have a slightly gummed up carb. I would get a can of carb. cleaner that you add to the fuel and hope that running that through the carb in a couple of tanks of gas will solve your problem.

Recently changed spark plugs on 2003 kia spectra. Afterwards it started to sputter at low rpms. I changed fuel filter and it still sputters. When moving and over 1000 rpm it runs fine. What do I do?


get urself a can of carb cleaner...brake cleaner...whatevers clever
with the car running spray it over vac maf sensor...until you hear the engine bog down. now you found ur vac leak or anything else and leaking.

My 2003 ford mustang is sputtering and the check engine light is blinking no code


You can get a free scan from Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance auto parts. This should indicate a problem. If the standard test scanner does not verify a problem, the Dealers have more advanced scanners which can capture intermittent problems.

There are so many possibilities that you need more tests to find the problem. Offhand, if this is a V6 engine, there were problems with intake Manifold runners and sandwich gaskets for 2 piece intake manifolds.

Stuck manifold runners could provide lousy low rpm performance and perfect high rpm performance just like you describe whether a V6 or V8. The 2 piece intakes were used on V6 engines and once you get above midrange in Rpm, it could run acceptably at higher Rpm.

4 wheeler backfire on start


incorrect air fuel mixture or a leak check for damage to the intake boot or airbox

i need to know more about how its running at low mid and high rpm to help you troubleshoot and you need to check for leaks especiely the intake boot if the intake boot is leaking that will need to be fixed before running the bike asumeing that is ok or fixed run the bike listen to it at idle standing is it surgeing with a good fast acceleration off the line with you siting on the quad ? or just realy rough ticking over with little guts off the line ?

midrange rideing how does it feel is there a bwarrr noise as u accelorate hard or does the engine roar up fast

is it reaching a good top end with good pulling power or poor pulling power

are the backfires constant or mainly whyle slowing down from high revs

if all are effected but there are no leaks then it may be float / fuel level that needs ajustment fuel level in ur float bowel effects all stages of rpm low mid and high

A rich problem gets worse as the engine heats up.



A lean problem gets better as the engine heats up.



hope this helps if u dont fix it your self first try and do them little rpm backfire tests for me itl tell me a lot
