I would rejet the carbs. I would go one size up on the jets. That should clear up the problem.

2007 V8 diesel sport. Missing badly at idle (650 RPM) when cold, runs smoothly if revs raised to 1000 RPM. Does not appear to miss under full power, and will generally run smoothly at idle when warm.


most likely bad injector tips
have them serviced and raise the idle to 750 rpms as the lower idle speed may not be raising the combustion pressure temperature to ignite badly sprayed fuel ( diesel has to be atomized not squirted )

You should check your exhaust for a clog of some kind such as a collapsed catalytic converter,Muffler or bent pipe or even something put in the tail pipe. also air filter car will start and run with clogged air or exhaust at idle but will starve out when idled up at all

clean the idler on the intake and also clean the throttle sensor, it would also be best to change the air filter and clean the maf sensor. Idler does more than just idle vehicle it controls low revs, and drop down from reves. throttle sensor tell ecu what air to add to the fuel. and the MAF tells ecu how much air is coming into the intake. also check for broken cracked vacuum lines.

1988 ford ranger 2.3l 5spd 2wd. Exhaust pipe tip is black. Fuel mileage is 13mpg. Replaced fuel filter; 8 plugs and wires, o2 sensor,thermostat,air filter,egr valve,cleaned iac and intake,ran sea foam...


The regulator is on top of the engine along the gas line. It has a vacuum line on top. Start the truck and pull the vacuum line off the regulator. If fuel comes out of the regulator, it has failed. You can run pretty rich with a busted regulator-especially at idle.

I have an 81 gs750 and I have pod filters shortened exhaust,


well you made 2 mistakes here.

1. pod filters
2. shortened exhausts.

These engines are designed and tuned specifically to run the best with the stock air filters as well as the stock mufflers and exhaust. Putting pods on and chopping off your exhaust pipes may look cool but it will cause the bike to run very poorly My advice would be to put it all back to stock and see how she rides and then change things one at a time.

Just bought a 1993 suzuki gsxr 750. has been sitting in a garage for 2 years. we took the carbs off and cleaned them really well, changed the oil, and air filter and we added new gas. bike starts up and...


If is runs better with full choke, then the bike is lean, check for air leaks at the carb manifold, vacumn cracked hoses, non standard exhausts, perhaps the mufflers have rusted out while sitting

2000 Ford E-150, engine was struggling to rev and then engine and all electrics cut out coasted to a stop. Started up again no problem but engine would not rev up and as a result the van drove very slowly...


Hi, I recommend you take the exhaust pipes loose from the exhaust manifolds to see if your exhaust is clogged. Start the truck--it will be loud. See if it will rev with the exhaust pipes loose. If yes, take the truck to a muffler shop to figure out if your converters or the muffler is clogged.
If it isn't a clogged exhaust, it may be that your timing belt/chain has jumped. We can check that next if the exhaust is open. It's a little harder to do, and your problem sounds more like a clog to me. I'll be here to answer your questions either way you decide to go.

Dose the engine have a rev limiter fitted when road testing bike popping back through exhaust on over run / when taken to high rev holding back on road test


Most engines with cdi boxes have rev limiters. Popping or backfiring could also be caused by low back pressure (aftermarket muffler) and most commonly bad exhaust gaskets in the head.

Homelite ut o8107 blower 25cc will only idle


Hello:

Have you Removed the Muffler and Checked the Exhaust Port and Muffler for Carbin Restriction?
Remove the Muffler and Start the Unit. If the Operates Correctly, then the Spark Arrestor Screen is Clogged and the Muffler/Screen Requires Replacing.
Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Not Restricted Also.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Respectfully
