If the bike is carburated, look just to the right of the large round top on the carb. You'll see a small screw here. This is the throttle stop screw. Turn the screw slightly clockwise to increase the idle speed.

If the bike is fuel injected, a service shop will have to increase the idle speed due to it being controlled by the onboard computer.

Good luck

Front and rear blow little to no heat

If you know for sure the thermostat is working, it could be low on coolant and has air pockets in the system. Only one radiator hose should be warm until the engine reaches normal temp, and both heater hoses should be very warm.

The A/C in my 2006 VW Passat does not work consistently. It works at times before the engine gets to operating temperature, but quits upon reaching normal operating temp. Any ideas?

you should check the antifreeze I have been told that if your antifreeze is low the computer will shut off systems to keep the engine temp down. if that is not the probable check your freon level if it is to full or not full enough the compressor won't work properly.

Heater does not get hot just luke warm

1st check the coolant level to make sure it's ok, low level can result in insufficient heat. What is going on with the engine temp? Is it running on the 'cool' side or normal range, in the normal zone, or running hot? If it is on the low side of normal, you may need a new thermostat. If the thermostat sticks open, the engine won't reach operating temp, and you will have minimal heat.

The blower motor and AC works but the heater doesn't in a 2002 bonnieville Pontiac. I turn on the AC and it works fine. I switch over to the heat and it just blows cold air.

if your vehicle has the electronic climate control, it is probably the blend door motor/actuator that has failed and is stuck at the temp that was last entered in the climate control unit when it failed. this can be a very time consuming repair to do as it is under the dash. the other possibility is your coolant level is low and not allowing the heater core to bring the outside air up to the temp you want. if that is the case,your low coolant temp sensor should have come on. if not, then the thermostat could be either stuck open or closed. if stuck open the engine would not always show the temp gauge at normal operating temp of 195-200 degrees. if stuck closed the engine should be overheating according to the temp gauge. you did not mention what the operating coolant temp was!

My temp guage goes up and down when im drivin? Its a 1992 toyota corolla wagon.

Your temp ranges from what to what? Some fluctuation is normal during operation because the thermostat is constantly moving to regulate temp, as does the electric fan. Providing changes are not large, and engine is not overheating, or low on coolant, everything is probably normal.

2001 dodge ram when you trun the heat on it blowes cool air

1st check your coolant level, if it's low, it won't circulate thru the heater core, and u will have little or no heat (easy fix!). If that isn't the problem, what does your engine temp gauge indicate? Is it running @ normal or low? How long does it take for the engine to reach operating temp? Let me know, as it could be a thermostat problem. If it's stuck open, the engine won't reach operating temp, and u won't have heat. There are a couple of other possibilities, let me know what u find with this info, these are the 2 easiest and common problems.
