At 40-45mph rough shift check engine light comes on and lack of power


A rough shift can result from the vehicle running rough. Lack of power and a vehicle running rough can be caused by one of two very common problems. One is a leak in the air duct between the air filter and the throttle body. The other is a leak from rubber hoses connecting the intake to the PCV valve at the crankcase causing a vacuum leak. More serious problems such as a misfire from a bad coil pack or a blown head gasket can also cause the vehicle to lose power and run poorly but these are not as common.

Stalling and running rough - Hyundai Elantra - 2001-05


The Hyundai Elantra 2001 - 2005, 2.0 L engine is noted for this problem. It will lack power on acceleration and run rough and stall while driving. The engine light will come on for misfire codes. This problem is caused by a vaccum leak at the intake manifold gasket. The gasket is broken and needs to be replaced.
To replace the intake gasket with a new one, remove the 12m nuts holding the intake to the cylinder head. Then pry back( note: you do not have to completely remove the intake manifold here) the intake manifold to gain excess to remove the old gasket. Remove any excess gasket and clean with brake cleans the surface area of the intake. Install the new intake gasket on to the head and carefully install intake on to cylinder head studs. Tighten up nuts gradually and evenly to 15-20 ft.lbs.

Dt 230 low on power.bike gets half revs then runs


Hi there, you likely still have the restrictor in the exhaust header. Mine was the same, they are shipped like that as standard. Take the exhaust off the engine and remove the the concentric tube that's in there (you need to cut it out). Instant +100% power, if that is your problem.

05 Bandit 1200S idles low, run rough at low rpms,


Try buying new diaframs for your carbs, because of the diafram and piston operation, if the diafram becomes weak due to heat from your engine, and by the diafram not beeing rigid enough, it hesitates to lift the needle out of the jet causing the lack of fuel at low tack/rpm when throttling up or accelerating slowly.

RATTERLY SOUND FROM POWER VALVES OR EXHAUST CONTROL VALVE.


Gooped up power valve should not produce noise. One would think it the valve was that loose, or the spring were gone it would develope a lower, strange curved, punchy power band, but not make noise. Still, it wouldn't hurt to see which spring (or lack thereof) is in the valve.

The run-on, rough high RPM and noise would tend to make me think of a lean condition. How's the plug looking?

1998 Toyota Corolla poor gas milage


first i would change the fuel filter. this is the number one reason for poor gas milage. the engine tries to compansate for the lack of fuel and in the long run this weakens your fuel pump and it will fail sooner rather than later. i als would check the air filter. if the engine can't breath properly it will lose power. if you have not had a tune up I would suggest getting one. this most certainly help boost the performance of your vehicle. i would try and use an additive in your fuel to clean the injectors clogged injectors will make the engine run rough and cause hard starting and rough idle.. the last thing i would have you check is the throttle positon sensor and the O2 sensor. take it to a shop and have them hook a diagnostic scan tool to it this will show if either of these sensors are bad or if they threw a code and the computer is trying to overcompensate for the lack of fuel. hope these options help you. please rate this solution thanks
