SOURCE: Noise from Fuel tank door

Sounds like a vibration between door and tank. Make sure all screws that fasten door to tank are tight and there are no loose parts attached tothe door or tank. If this fixes it fine if not sometimes you have to put tape and strips of rubber in places when you warranty has run out. Good luck to you...Tim

SOURCE: vespa et4 125 cuts out after starting and riding for a few yards

before buying a new HT coil (as these are generally bullet proof on an et), remove the inspection panel and disconnect the spark cap. secure something long, thin and metal into the cap ( screw, tweezers, etc) and position it with a slight gap to the frame. disable the immobiliser and use the kick start. you should see the spark jumping from the metal to the metal frame. I fyou see this spark, it is most likely that the HT coil is fine.

Sometimes the diaphragm in the fuel tap can go wonky on an ET also, meaning that it might start alright but after going for a while, once the carb drains, the engine will die from fuel starvation. to test the fuel tap, remove the 2 tubes that run from the fuel tap to the carb at the carb end and **** lightly on the thin one. you will feel the daphragm open and fuel will run from the fatter tube if it is working.

Another thing that might happen if it is running for a while then dies is that the carb might be allowing too much fuel to the engine and flooding it. If when it restarts, there is a lot of smoke from the exhaust it could indicate this. leave it tick over for a while to run off the worst of it then increase the throttle slowly until you hit full throttle, leave it run back down to idle and you should be set to go. only use the throttle lightly and go slowly and it should bring you home at least then adjust your carb.

SOURCE: i need to get to carbaretta to clean but cant lift

there is no valve to turn off on modern bikes. you will have to syphon off petrol into a safe container and can pinch hose with a small pair of mole grips or bend hose back 180 degrees and put a rubber band on

Hi, I recently ran out of petrol on a run, I managed to get a little which got me close to home and I ran out again and had to push it. Now I've put more in and she refuses to start. The ES works

running the tank so low drags all of the rubbish in the bottom of the tank into the fuel system...doing it twice pretty much guarantees a blockage...

Yes it's likely the fuel pump. If that was the first time the filter was changed and it really needed it, it usually causes the pump to fail. It's in the gas tank.

I have a 1988 Ford Ranger and the engine won't turn over. Sounds like it wants to start but won't. Any suggestions on where to start to look for the problem.

If it's trying to start then this would indicate that it is getting spark to the plug's (if its a petrol) Check if it is getting fuel ( petrol or diesel) Its most likely a fuel problem. If petrol check the carb. first pake off the intake at the top of the carb. and pour a small bit of petrol in and try starting it should start up for a few second's if this work's check the fuel lines filters etc. If its diesel check fuel filter an and if its clean then it could be drawing air into the system usually at the filter simple check is disconect the fuel line to the filter and the one fron the filter to the pump. join these two pipes together get a suitable piece of pipe that will fit tightly between them try turning again mite take a bit of turning as the system will have to bleed itself. Let me know if you get it fixed and please add if it's petrol or diesel save me a lot of explaining we can get it going no matter what the problem is. But as you asked this is somewhere to start.

Ran out of gas wont start now

if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

if its diesel you must bleed fuel system taking extreme care if you un do lines some very high pressure

Kawasaki kmx 125 2002 wont start

To me I want to know how old that gas is. If it smells like old paint or stale at all you need to rid the complete system. Then you need to take your carb. off and take it apart and clean it and all the jets, since you said there was sand in the gas tank.
