I would think you need a valve adjustment. I would have the problem checked out at a repair shop.

Hi i bought 2002 nissan sentra ..previous owner replaced head gasket ,water pump.thermostat ...car was running good for a week then sudeny no hot air inside(blows but cold) and 10 minutes later...


Thermostat is the wrong temperature range for the vehicle or it is installed backwards. It is opening too soon and not allowing the vehicle engine to come up to operating temperature soon enough. Have system checked, replace thermostat with correct temperature for vehicle

What would cause a poulan chain saw to quit running after about ten minutes of cutting


The only temperature sensitive part I can think of is the condenser. In most saws it is under the flywheel with the points. Some newer saws have an electronic ignition module. If that is the case the module must be replaced.

The popping at idle and deceleration (when the throttle is in the idle position) could be a lean mixture at idle.
A lean mixture sitting at idle for a long light would cause the engine to run hot.
Also, as the engine reaches operating temperatures, the idle will pick up.

Honda shadow vt1100c 1986 idile to low after running awhile


There's an idle adjustment screw. The bike runs faster when cold because the fuel\air adjustment is richer on a cold engine. When the bike warms up, the fuel becomes more lean in mixture because the heat causes the fuel to expand, i.e., less molecules of fuel to the firing sequence of the piston. When the bike is warmed up, after say ten minutes, the heat causes a leaner mixture, so adjust the idle on a hot engine (about 1000 rpm more or less). The bike will idle faster when cold, then drop rpm's as the engine warms up. Good luck

OVERHEATING 2000 YZ80


ya i have a yz250f and learned from a first hand experience that any racebike 2 stroke or 4 stroke doesnt like to idle for a few minutes without moviing. i started up my bike and let it sit for 8 minutes to warm up and antifreeze started spewing out. so i cut it off and called a friend that races. he told me these bikes need air moving through them otherwise they overheat easily and the antifreeze over flows because it expands. if i actually read the manual the book says not to let the bike stand and idle for more then 3 minutes cause after that amount of time it should already be warmed up.
so its just the bike over heating and make sure to top off your coolant the next time u ride

Won't start


Need more info. Do you know if it is losing fire or fuel? This will help solve it better. Sounds like a sensor is overheating and cutting out though. Any check engine lights?

Heater blows cold air from top vents after running for 1.3 hours


Sounds like you may be able to fix it by flushing your antifreeze and back flushing the heater core. Some car owners cheep out and put stop leak into the antifreeze, others dont change there antifreeze at all. Both are mistakes.
