Has it been standing for a while? It sounds like the fuel has caramelised from standing. All fuels today have so much ethanol that they only last a few months. You could try a can of Sea Foam in the tanks then run it then block the intakes on the carbs so it causes a vaccum and cleans out the pilot jets. This is a long shot, but it might work. If not you need to take the carbs apart and clean them. Take all the jets out and replace with new then let the carb bodys soak in carb cleaner. The pilot jet air ways are really small and get blocked easly make sure they are clear before you put the carbs back together. Good luck. If it wasnt standing check the timing is advancing and retarding.

The rev counter in my 2000 corolla is reading incorrectly

Macsry2k answer makes the the most trouble shooting sense. Problem is definitely electric. Since the alternator is where the RPM reading comes from, this is the best place to start. Good luck!

Cuts out

I would expect on an engine like that the engine cut out is set for around 6000 rpm so that you cannot cause any accidental damage by over revving it. Why do you want to rev it past 6000 rpm???

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

Rev limiter is at 6000rpm not 8500rpm

Hi Peter,

With such high revving engines (me being a Honda fanatic) you need to keep an eye on oil levels. Check the level, top up as necessary. Without the correct amount of oil in, the oil pressure cannot stimulate the switch over cam, which takes it to 8500rpm.

Also, please don't rev you car without load (ie. standing still), this causes valve lash and is detrimental to the engine. Again, please do not rev your car hard without letting the oil get up to temperature or it won't last long :)

Once you check your oil, reset the ECU by pulling the battery lead off for around 20 minutes.

Good luck and have a blast. Could you vote for me if this helps you. Thanks.

Hi mt mk3 golf gti 2.0 liter 8 valve seems to be hitting a limiter of some sort at 5000rpm it should rev to over 6000rpm why is this,? thanks

what aload of rubbish its not going over 5000rpm because the dizzie timings out and you need to get your crank or tdc timing then check all timing marks line up through top of gear box once its all lined up then you can set your distributor timing this is definately the problem so i hope you sort it ive red lined my golf for 2 years on nearly every journey at some point and the engine runs sweet as a nut but it does drink alot of fuel lol

Rev limit light flashes when reved over 6000 rpm!

No, the rev limiter resets to 6000 rpms when the battery goes dead or is changed. You have to reprogram the rev limiter to allow it to rev to 11,500 or more, but i am sorry to say that i can't recall the sequencevof buttons to reset it, which shold be in your owners manual. This is not an upshift light!
