First thing would be to get rid of old fuel and replace with new. Then look for codes to see if injectors are okay or not.

If your stock air cleaner has not been replaced you should be able to install the pipes with no adjustments. Run the bike a few miles and check your spark plugs. They should be a nice tan color. If they are too dark, your bike is running rich, too light means its running lean. Either way the ecm download from harley should fix you up. At that point you should get the screamin eagle ac kit and down load.

SOURCE: fuel pump?

the fuel pump for your 2000 fuel injected road king is located in the fuel tank. you will have to remove the speedometer housing, by first removing the seat, then remove the one small screw near the seat that holds the speedometer housing in place, also remove the small screw at the front of the speedometer housing and lift the housing off the tank and disconnect the wiring that goes to the back of the speedometer. there is a large oval shaped gold in appearance plate on top of the fuel tank. this plate is what the fuel pump is mounted to.

The problem is an air leak leaning the fuel mix. The idle speed starts going up a ramp until it is wide open. The valves no longer seating well is a possible cause as is air manifold gaskets, rings and a cylinder head not torqued down tight.

SOURCE: removing gas tank on harley flhtci

remove seat, remove console on top of tank, disconnect wiring from console to tank, disconnect vent line if present, disconnect fuel line on tank, disconnect fuel gauge (up under tank on left side, 3 wires, 4 wire connector, wires are yellow, orange, and black), remove bolt at rear of tank, remove two side bolts up front under tank (coil bracket is there also, carefully cut clamp on cross over hose located up front under tank.
This works better with three hands remove one side of cross over hose, fuel will flow freely so the extra hands are good at "plugging" the hose and the tank. Gently remove tank tilting front of tank as much as you can till you get it clear of the frame, while still tilted at a steep angle put the cross over hose back on.
To make things easier drain all fuel out of tank before reversing the process to reinstall tank. Hope this helps.

How do I fix and 97 GMC 1/2 ton with a 350 vortec. Runs great once running. Sat for 5 years. If sits more than 5 minutes wont start without shot of starer fluid

have you changed the fuel filter and emptied the gas tank and put fresh gas in? Stale gas will not start as well as fresh gas and there could be water from condensation in the tank.

You might consider how long it has been sitting. How long has the battery been off a charger? Batteries need to cycle...sitting for months of non-use will drain enough charge out of them that they don't have enough cranking power..sometimes they will never regain a charge and need to be replaced....a Jump should work here. It is possible the Carburetor is gummed up? Assuming Carb model not fuel injected...Take off the air filter and spray some carb cleaner in the intake to see it if will turn over. If fuel injected model, you may add some fuel injector cleaner to gas tank (read the label on proper use)...You might have to flush the fuel line and add new fuel if it has been sitting for a year or more.

Won't start

Year-old fuel? I'd start with syphoning that out and putting in some new gas. Maybe spray some carb cleaner and starter fluid in the carbs (unless it's fuel injected? - I'll bet it's not.) You may have to eventually need to pull 'em out and clean 'em. usually involves sticking a piece of thin wire through some jet you pull out. Compressed air from a compressor would be handy. Again, start with the fresh gas.

Where is carb on a 98 chevy cavalier

Well it doesn't have one. GM cars built after 1988 are fuel injected.
You could check fuel pressure with a gauge, and also try using starting fluid sprayed into the intake hose to boost fuel supply.

My car has been sitting for 2 years and won't start. The engine turns over but it sounds like not getting gas. I read somewhere to spray gas starting inside air intake valve. Where is the air intake v

Safer is to use 'carburetor cleaner' which is also flammable but a little less dangerous than using gasoline.After sitting a long time, our modern gasoline gets tired; never allow something to sit so long without adding some 'fuel stabilizer.'If possible with your car, I would drain (siphon) the tired gas out and replace it with a few gallons of fresh.
Really tough starting problems can also be overcome with 'starting fluid' which is pure ether and very flammable.Any of these may require the removal of the engine air filter so the liquid gets into the intake manifold.
Stale gasoline can also gum up the fuel injectors which may have to be removed for service if none of the fluids causes the engine to fire.

GMC 2001 W3500 truck run great during the year but is getting hard to start with the winter cold weather . I just have the spark plugs changed but now it did not start. What else could be the problem.

check your air filter and your fuel filter when you start it dont push the gas down its injected. A block heater can help. It might have one there is a plug near the front bumper inside if it has one. Try running some fuel injection cleaner through it. I like Techron Make sure you check your air filter and clean the screen in your mass air flow sensor with the special aerosol spray

My MTD shredder, after sitting unused for 2 years, won't start. How do I make it start?

Drain all the old gas (if it's a small amount, you can throw it into your car's nearly-full gas tank even if it's mixed with oil.) add fresh gas. you may need to try to start it several times to give the new gas a chance to work it's way to the engine.

If this doesn't work, then try starting fluid (ether in a spray can) find the air intake and remove the filter sponge. Spray the starting fluid into the air intake and try to start it. If you don't have starting fluid, you can use WD-40.


Even if the engine beigns to sputter out - just let it stop and then spray more ether before starting again.

If neither of these work, then you should replace the sprak plug. If the engine started with ether, but won't stay running, then you should check the fuel line or fuel filter for blockage.

1991 Jeep Wrangler has been sitting in a garage for 3 years. It starts and shuts right off. I spray ether in it and it starts then shuts back off again. It seems as though I am not getting fuel. What do...

im asuming it was running fine when it was garaged? if so, then the first thing you need to do is to drain the fuel tank and flush the fuel lines. when gas gets old, it simply wont ignite. and over that time, it thickens into almost a syrup. so you need to drain and clean the fuel tank, fuel lines, and replace the fuel filter. im not sure if that year jeep is carbureted or fuel injected, but if it has a carb., then that will definitely need to be cleaned. or for fuel injection, use a good fuel injector cleaner mixed with your new gas. once it starts, it wlil run a bit rough, but once the old fuel gets burned out of the system, it should gradually improve.

Engine stalls after running for 25 miles?

Sounds like a fuel or intake problem to me, start the bike and spray brake cleaner onto the intake where it goes into the head, if the bike stumbles then you have an intake leak and have to change the seals or just tighten up the intake manifold. Another thing you could do is remove the carb (if it is carburated) remove the float bowl and clean everything including the jets, you could have some **** in there that is plugging things up. Also try removing the air cleaner and spraying a can of carb cleaner into and around the carb. Also try removing the gas tank and completely cleaning it and the petcock screen out, you could have something in the gas tank that is migrating to the petcock and causing a blockage.
