2000 honda odyssey throttle sticks shut when you first touch the gas pedal ( this means everytime my wife takes off from a dead stop she looks like she is drag racing the guy beside her). I first thought...

See if there are any "pending trouble codes" in the car's computer. Major auto parts stores will read your codes out for free. This may be a transmission clutch problem and not a throttle problem at all.

What kind of car battery should i buy for my 2000 honda accord

Any good parts store should be able to point you in the right direction. Car batteries come in different series - size, post configurations and cold cranking amps. Prices vary generally due to warranty period - the longer warranty the more expensive. If you plan on keeping car for a long time or if you live in a cold climate, it's best advised to buy the biggest you can afford. If not plan on keeping car long by minimum.

So how can i fix my problem with the gas leak and womt start or run unless the choke is on

The carburetor needs to be taken off then the float bowl at the bottom of the carb. Trash and water and varnish have plugged up the jets in the carb and is causing the float to stick open. Get a can of spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store then spray into every hole in the carb. Remove the choke and the throttle and air screws and spray into those holes as well. What goes into one hole should come out of another. Wear goggles to avoid getting any spray in your eyes.

How do you turn off the check engine light on 2000 honda cvr

Fix the problem that is making the light come on. Then either use a code scanner to reset the codes or disconnect the battery for a few minutes.

If you do not have a code scanner, most auto part stores will let you use theirs at the store.

I have a honda magna vf750 the no1 carb keeps sticking aqnd high ?

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb.
clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
