Question about 2002 Yamaha TT-R 250

2 Answers

Its starts and runs good, but it is not able to idle, i will rev it up to keep it running and it either gets to like a 300 rpm idle for a second or so then just dies, or it will be like it has a stuck throttle and idle at like 4000 rpms. i changed all linkage, nothing is sticking in the carburator or linkage, im not sure if its related to an ignition problem or like a accelarator pump in the carb?

Well thats the thing, it doesn't really idle at 300, i will be out on a trail and it runs decent while im on it, but anytime im on a trail and need to decelerate to brake or just get off the throttle completey(even just to turn), it will die, by 300 rpm idle i just meant when im completely off the throttle for about a second itll stay runnin at extremely low idle fora second, if that, and then it dies, and sometimes it will idle at like 4000 rpm. it just woint stay at a constant 600 rpm.

Assuming you haven't done anything to the carb or cable, the revving up would indicate an air leak somewhere around the carb manifold, either at the head or at the carb/manifold couple.
300rpm is very low for a single to idle at, it should be around 600rpm for reliable idling.
To check for air leaks, spray CRC or WD-40 around the manifold while the bike is idling - you will hear a change in speed.

My 2002 Acura tl revs while in park and in drive, check engine light just turned on as well.

The throttle body and idle air control motor needs a good cleaning. Use brake clean and a toothbrush and clean inside the throttle as best you can. especially the back of the throttle plate and where it sits against the throttle body. Start the car, it will take a second or so. Then rev it up and spray some cleaner in the throttle keeping it running. This usually takes care of the up and down RPM's. Have the codes checked to see what is going on. It could be the idle air control motor. Let me know.

1997 acura cl 2.2 revs up to 1500 rpm and down to 1000 rpm just several seconds after start

Cars are design to run at a higher idle at start up to warm them up quick. There is a sensor that reads water temperature and tells your car's computer how fast to idle. Your RPMs seem slightly high but not out of the norm. Does idle ever drop to around 600/800 after about a minute? If not, your engine temperature sensor maybe defective.

Idle problem integra

check the MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure). The ECM (car computer) uses that to keep idle at minimum 750 RPM. It's normal for it to run high when cold. These small 4 banger motors typically run hot, and they won't run right IF they're NOT running hot, ergo the idle is usually high when it is cold so as to cause it to warm up quicker. If the RPM's drop below 750, suspect the MAP sensor, &/or ECM.

Low rpm's in idle when heating/cooling system is on & surges.

Check your EGR or your Idle control Valve. This can cause a problem with your irratic idling

Craftsman 16'' chainsaw, start with very high rpm, how to adjust ?

The H is for when your cutting,it keeps the saw from stalling. The L, is for the saw when at Idle. When the L ,is adjusted right, the saw should stay running ,and the chain should not move ,that is with the break in the off position. The H screw,should be adjusted if the saw bogs down when rev ed up. A good starting point for theses screws would be a turn and one half out.
