Idle speed problem

Check the upper intake for vacum leaks, use a can of carb spray, if there is a leak then the engine will react when the carb spray gets sucked in the leak.

High RPM in low gears after well heated engine.

Hi Thinbluegato, remove air cleaner and backing plate, spray some starting fluid or Brake Kleen at intake manifold to head area and intake manifold to carburator area when engine is cold. If RPMS increase then you have an intake leak and repair as necessary. If you have a carburator your idle adjusting screw is in too far or your air fuel mixture is too lean or your fast idle cam on choke could be faulty. If you are injected please visit website below:

Rough idle in gear while stopped

Is your car a manual or automatic? If it is a manual, did you just change your clutch? I have a 2003 Dodge Neon and when I replaced the clutch the entire car shook; come to find out the clutch was not assembled right and wasn't balanced. I installed another clutch and it is fine now.

No second gear


The 2nd gear lockout is, a mechanical speed sensing mechanism. It doesn't care if the engine is running. You bypass it by scooting the bike forward, about 5-6 mph, while shifting the transmission into 2nd gear.

Stand on the left side of the bike, with the ignition "ON" and the transmission in neutral.
3 With your right foot on the ground, behind your left foot: place your left foot on the left foot peg, with your toe under the shifter; squeeze in the clutch.
*4.Scoot the bike forward about 5-6 mph, with your right foot, and shift the transmission into 2nd gear, with your left foot. If you accidentally go into 3rd, or some higher gear, you can easily shift back down into 2nd, without further movement of the bike.
5.To start the bike: Apply the choke if the engine is cold. Squeeze in the clutch and push the bike forward, both feet on the ground, about 8-12 mph. Release the clutch until the engine start
As soon as the engine starts: squeeze in the clutch and shift the bike into neutral.

My 87 Mazda B2000 has been parked down hill for 3 months.Now the motor starts but I cannot put it in any gear with the motor on. The stick shift will move into gears with the engine off.

sounds like the clutch has corroded somewhat.
does it feel like the clutch has some pressure?
try putting it in gear, depress the clutch, and then see if it will start in gear( be carefull it may jump forward)
this might free the clutch.
also the clutch fluid may have drained or have an air bubble, depressing the clutch many times quickly may self bleed the air out, or bleed some new fluid through it. make sure to top up the fluid.

Whenever I put the car in "reverse," the engine quits. Why is this happening?

Try these things out:
1. Your not holding the brake all the way down when shifting into reverse,
because when you DON'T, the engine idles a little high, and that can be making it "bog" and die.
2.Your idle speed is too low.
3.Your transmission is causing it to cut the engine out, because of the load, in that case... you might need either more or less transmission fluid.
4.If its a stick-shift, you need to ease off the clutch VERY gently, otherwise it stalls.
and NOT hit the gas, otherwise you'll **** backward and hit something.

I have a 1996 F150 4x4 with a 5 liter/302 engine, manual tramsmission. When I push the clutch in to shift the engine races and the tach goes up then after a few minutes it will idle down. I have replaced...

Check the PCV valve and the PCV hose where the elbow is near the TB. It may be stuck open and the hose may have a crack, Squeeze it while engine is running. Also are you sure its not brake related. The check valve on the booster can fail. Does the RPM change when you apply just the brake ??
Also spray some brake cleaner around the base of the TB looking for a RPM increase. Spray around any vacuum source.

I have a 1990 honda 300 four trax 2x4 and a nice bike good shape

Good news > save your money on the clutch. Bad news > Invest it in new shift forks. What you describe is a standard symptom of bent shift forks. Sorry to be the one to tell you this.
