I have a 2003 silverado, it starts fine in the morning but the rest of the day it cranks for a long time before starting. turning the key on and off a few times doesn't help. I have had the fuel pump


If the fuel pump is inside the gas tank, remove the gas cap, to equalize the air-pressure inside/outside the gas tank. That should let the fuel pump "suck" the gas from the tank.

You have vapor lock . Check the air hose from the tank make sure its not blocked or kinked. If air can't get into tank it make a vacuum and gas won'g flow to the carbs.

Why does 1998 jeep Cherokee not run unless gas tank is at least half full?


2.5L or 4.0L? engine.
ever do a full service on this car , with a fuel filter.
or wrong gas cap, does car run ok cap off? or loose?
ignore cap off DTC errors. EVAP errors when done, ok?
start with basics.
then check fuel pressure, with a 1/4 tank, is it spec pressure with that brand new filter? yes/no.

the filter is part of the top of pump at top of the FP reg. in tank.
that be how its done. no need to guess. at all.
in this case, the pressure test is after, the cap checks.
the wrong cap will have a missing, cap vacuum breaker this cause
the pump to fail (it cant suck in a hard vacuum at all, get a new cap)

FSM spec, a the fuel rail for pump pressure,
Start the vehicle and note the pressure reading at idle which should be 31 psi (214 kPa).

if the car stalls with 31 PSI pressures , its NOT THE PUMP.
easy huh? just one tool and bam ,hard cold diagnostic facts.
evidence.
the tool can be had for $20

Gas and oil in honda shadow air box


Hi, Anonymous you're getting ready to go riding you pull out the dipstick to check your oil level and are greeted with the unmistakable smell of gasoline. What happens next depends on the following:
1. You have experienced this before and do not start the engine but do change your oil and filter leaving it 1 quart low until the engine reaches operating temperature then top off as necessary.
2. The amount of time your bike has been sitting since the last time the engine was running.
3. The amount of gas and contaminants in the tank.
4. The oil pump location, exterior or interior.
5. The condition of your petcock gasket/seal/diaphragm.
If your gas tank was low and you start the engine probably nothing you would notice but if your gas tank was full and you start your engine the oil/gas mixture can blow into your air filter, come streaming out of your crankcase breather hose, and launch your oil tank cap followed by a blast of oil. The mess can be minor or you need to call a Hazmat team for assistance. This will also happen if you overfill your oil tank.
Next is the how and why gas can get into your oil tank/system:
a. The vacuum petcock rubber/diaphragm fails, which allows gas to flow from the fuel tank through the petcock, through the vacuum line into the intake manifold, then into the combustion chamber, where it seeps past the piston rings and into the bottom end.
3. Nonvacuum petcocks that are not turned to the off position will patiently wait until contaminants from the gas tank build up in between the carburetor needle and seat breaking the seal thus inviting gas to enter the combustion chamber eventually finding it's way into the bottom end and the oil tank.
4. Bottom line if you're not going to ride your bike for a while turn off the petcock.

Is the only way to fill the coolant for my Honda Shadow Sabre 1100 is by the small cap near the passengers right foot peg?


I filled my radiator with coolant by removing the cover on the right side of the gas tank just behind the handle bars. When you remove the cover, you will see the radiator cap. Remove the cap and begin filling with the appropriate coolant.

I RIDE A 2003 650 V-STAR CUSTOM. I TOOK IT IN FOR


It sounds like they pinched the vent tube under the tank. There is a hose connected to the bottom of the tank that runs to the bottom of the bike. It allows air to enter the tank so you don't get vapor lock from the motor sucking fuel. You'll need to take the tank off and make sure the lines aren't pinching anywhere. I would call the mechanic and make him fix it and any damages to the tank.

I need to take the carbeurator off my honda 1100 shadow sabre . it only runs on f2 cylnders until it warms up then you have to leave the choke on then you turn the choke off it quits


Your carbs are full of junk particles, clogging the jets. To remove them you will have to remove the gas tank, cables and intake hoses. If you plan on doing this yourself I would buy a repair manual, it will show you the steps.
