Question about Ducati Motorcycles

2 Answers

Travelling on a constant throttle my 996S feels like it is starving for fuel. Responds to more throttle though. I have changed the fuel filter and plugs without any improvement.

Have replaced fuel filter and spark plugs. I suspect coolant and engine temperature sensors are not working. Bike runs ok when cold but not when warm.

Sounds like your mass air flow sensor. This sensor gets air and fuel mixture correct when entering cylinders upon combustion. Good luck man............

How do you know if a fuel filter is going bad?

It will starve the engine from fuel which would make the car feel as though the key is being turned of then on and so on

Not picking up gas when engine is cold, sputtering, bogging out especially when travelling uphill, Is this some sort of a sensor maybe??,the spark plugs are new. thanks

check fuel filter. it is starving for fuel. unless the fuel pump is bad. check filter first, then go from there. symtoms of a bad coolant sensor--poor cold idle, stalling, rich mixture retarded timing, slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage.

Starved of fuel

popping sound tells me more then likely it's burning fuel in your tail pipe and not completly in your motor. when was the last time you did a tune up? you know, plugs, wires, cap, and rotor?

Sounds like it is starving for fuel...the other guys sound right...check your fuel filter and fuel pressure...if the filter is nearly stopped up the pump would build pressure which would "push" past the filter and make it feel more powerful...then as the pressure drops it starts to starve again until the pressure builds up enough. Also, with the vehicle parked and running, get someone to rev it up while you feel the air coming out of the exhaust...if it isn't a good amount of pressure coming out of the tailpipe, your converter may be stopping up. be careful not to get burned by the exhaust though.

My car feels like its starving for fuel at acceleration. Can you help?

It could be a few things in the fuel systen. The fuel filter is a likely culprit. If it hasn't been changed in a while, change it our more problems will arise. If that's not it the injectors could be clogged, try an injector cleaner before getting it worked on. It could also be a few other things including fuel pump, TPS (throttle position sensor), EGR (if your car has one). or even plugs and wires, Try the filter and cleaner first, if that doesn't help get a diagnostic.
