If it was mine, I wouldn't attempt to start it until after a complete tear-down of (at least) the engine. Fluids need to be flushed and replenished with fresh. Three hours is long enough to soak about everything.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat is worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

How to service a stabilitrak on a 2006 cadillac dts


If the Stabilitrak Yaw sensor box gets full of water you will get the Service Stabilitrak message.
The 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne have a manufacturing defect of a major water leak problem at the bottom of the driver's side A pillar just below the windshield, accessible after the air inlet grille panel under the wiper blades is removed. The GM service manual bulletin #PI0356A (June 8, 2011) vaguely outlines how to seal off this opening, see attached photo taken from this bulletin. After sealing the obvious unsealed seams, I had to use fire-block insulating foam to close off the large 1 inch remaining upper opening.
The Cadillac DTS has another water leak path in the left front hinge pillar area under the wheelhouse liner noted in the same service bulletin.
In our Lucerne CXS, water actually flooded the Stabilitrak Yaw sensor box which is under the carpet under the driver's seat, resulting in the service Stabilitrak message . It's a major chore to remove the seats, trim and center console just to get the carpets out to dry. The carpets are difficult to dry because they have 1 inch of foam attached which holds a lot of water.
After removing the carpets and sealing the obvious seams, water still poured in when tested with a water hose and it was then I discovered that the water was getting in through the large upper opening which I used fire-block foam to seal. It's best to water test before you put everything back together.
You can quickly check if you have a water leak problem in your vehicle by popping up the rear seat bottom, removing the carpet clip and lifting the carpet on the driver's side rear passenger seat. Ours had about a 1/2 inch of standing water plus a lot more held in the carpet's foam rubber.
I was able to reuse the flooded Stabilitrak Yaw sensor by opening the box, shaking out the water, rinsing the insides with isopropyl alcohol and drying with a hair dryer. The service message went out and the Stabilitrak works in my attempts to slide around on gravel.
I'm surprised that GM didn't have a recall as I consider Stabilitak to be safety equipment.

I have a mens schwinn midmoor bike that I'm trying to find a rear rack for. Where do I attach the rack at under the seat? Do I need a seat clamp attachment? What size? I'd appreciate any help! :) ...


The most secure and sway-free type would be one that bolts to the bike at at least three points, not simply clamping the seatpost.

Blackburn and Topeak make some nice ones. They mostly bolt to those pre-drilled holes above and behind the rear axle and most say what wheel-size bike they will fit plus they have a range of adjustment (usually via bendable metal braces) for reaching that key third point near the top of the seatstays or brake bridge.

Have been having issues starting bike. Engine seems to be flooding for no apparent reason. e.g., this has happened multiple times.Started it today ( idling little low round 0.5k revs), let it run for 5...


A flooding problem is usually due to a problem with the foat and the needle/seat in the carburettor. This could be sticking open and allowing the engine to flood. Also, alowing an air cooled engine to run stationary for extended periods builds up considerable localised heat and this could be causing fuel to percolate and flood the engine. Back fire could be coming from a sticking valve - from the heat and a carbon build-up?

But first check the floats and needle and seats in the carb an shut off the fuel tap after shutting down the macnine.

How do I change the battery on my VTX? I am going to replace my battery with a new one, what is the proper proceddure to do this?


Depending on your model of vtx1300 there are 2 or 3 bolts holding the seat on. On the S model remove the side covers and remove the 2 bolts(one on each side) and lift off the seat . On the C model there is a nut at the rear of the seat that also has to come off. Lift the back of the seat and pull it toward the rear of the bike. Remove the three bolts on the plastic cover and the two cable bolts. The battery will lift straight up out of the battery box. Be sure to charge your old battery with a 12 volt charger before storing. If installing a new battery be sure to use your charger to bring the new battery up to a full charge before using it.

I've got a 2005 650 that is pouring gas out of a tube under the carb. It only pours when its started and running. Won't idle


Your carb has a hung float or needle and seat issues.

You have to take the carb off the bike and consider replacing the float and/or needle and seat.

You might get by just raising the float level. But this is only a stopgap maneuver. Buy a new float!

You bike is flooding so it wont run right until this is fixed.

The reason its only flooding while its running is because your bike has an automatic gas tank valve that opens when the bike starts and makes vacuum that opens the valve. It is saving you from the bike totally filling up with fuel!

My garage got very cold during the month of December and my bike does not want to start now. It had started but it turned off and smells like it is flooded. What could be the problem?


Bike should be fuel injected so very hard to flood. Most likely battery was weak from cold and couldn't turn over and spark enough to start. Try charging battery for a few hours, beware of sparks if you smell gas. Hook charger up then turn on.
