Clean air filter fuel filter and fuel tank and lines. Then the varb needs to have the bowl removed to allow the float to be removed,(carefull to not loose fuel needlle or retaining spring.)The jet and orfaces should be cleaned (when the jet is removed be sure the seat for jet goes back the same way....the seat and jet have a rounded shape that fits closely together, not round and flat together.)Ok so be sure not to adjust anything, just clean it and put it back together.Using carb cleaner is the best, you should have mot of the can leftover.Dont let it get on anything (except the carburetor) it will ruin paint and the finish on your engine if you let it!

Engine dies immediately after starting


Very limited information for me to work with here, but if it is a newer fuel injected engine built prior to 2000 the try the procedure below.
Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2000 and down)
You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Throttle assembly


Hi Jimmy ! THE PROBLEM YOU ARE FACING MOSTLY IS ON THE THROTTLE BODY . IS GOOD IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WILL DO BY REMOVING THE THROTTLE BODY FROM THE ENGINE. JUST GIVE IT A GOOD CLEANING BY USING A CARBURRETOR CLEANER-CLEANING THE THROTTLE ITSELF AND ALSO IF YOU CAN CHECK THE IDLE SPEED CONTROL WHICH IS UNDER THE THROTTLE BODY ( ONE UNIT) STRIPPED BY FOUR SCREWS, CLEAN AND REFITTED.

What's your problem?I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that runs great when driving but as soon as I stop and sit a minute it cuts off. I have noticed the car start stalling a little before it cuts off. Cou


Generally speaking, the common reasons for stalling are a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake thru the throttle body.
Those two issues would be checked first.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

My 2005 Katana 600 F was idling slow at about 600 - 700 RPM so I messed with a throttle screw under the throttle lever. I got it to idle at 1000 RPM where I think it should be. But now when I turn the...


turn the cable adjuster back to its original position ie between 600-700 rpm look to the left hand side of the carbs you will see a large adjusting screw on a metal bracket whilst engine is running turn inwards towards rear wheel until between 1000 - 1500 rpm remember to warm engine first as rpm will rise if idle is set with a cold engine as the engine warms up when riding
