Hi, Hernan if you have a bike that has not had regular fuel system maintenance and you run the fuel tank dry I feel your pain. All the contaminants water-dirt-rust-liner paint flakes-ethanol sludge etc. that lived in the bottom of your fuel tank get mixed with the last few oz. of fuel left in the tank and enter the fuel system clogging up fuel filters-fuel valves-fuel lines-carburetor jets-needle jets and seats-fuel injectors etc. You fill up your fuel tank and guess what your bike does not start or if it does it runs like dog pop, a complete cleaning of the fuel system is mandatory, the procedure is as follows:
1. Drain the fuel tank and inspect the inside for leftover uninvited guests decontaminate as necessary for rusty environments install a liquid fuel liner.
2. In tank fuel pumps with external filters need to be cleaned.
3. Fuel valves need to be rebuilt with a new gasket kit.
4. Fuel lines need to be inspected for integrity and replaced as necessary any inline fuel filter should be cleaned or replaced.
5. Carburetors need to be disassembled then "DIPPED" and soaked in a commercial carb cleaning solution Gunk sells 1/2 gallon pails with meshed screen baskets. Reassemble using new rebuild kits. Record all jet sizes and float level for fine tuning.
6. Fuel injectors and fuel rails need to be properly cleaned and tested for optimum performance, if necessary send off any suspect injectors to "" for a modest fee they will refurbish the unit back to factory specs.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

SOURCE: cbr 125 choke problem

It sounds like the choke line may not have been routed correctly when the new one was installed. Remove the gas tank and check to see that the line is not being stretched anywhere along the way AND that the gas tank when re-installed is not stretching the line. The line may have been kinked when installed. Look at the mechanical movement of the choke at the carb. Does it operate freely? Remove the air filter and look inside the center of the carb, (you may need to use a small mirror for this), does it look like the choke is opening and closing properly when the choke is moved on and off?

SOURCE: Kawasaki gt550 won't start from cold! even with choke!!

when you get the bike started you need to adjust the pilot air screw. here's how= turn in clock wise until engine falters(mark that spot with a pin)then out counterclock wise until the engine falters(mark that spot also) then put the screw in half amount adjustment of the two marks.that will take care of if it is to lean or to rich.make sure the engine is good and warm before doing so.

You will have to clean the carburator, blow the jets with compressed air,check the float level too and reset.
Good luck.

1998 Suzuki VL 1500 Intruder LC fuel indicator light blinking

Hi, Anonymous so you want to know how far you can go on reserve, the answer to that question is between you and your motorcycle, how fast you are going and the overall condition of your bike.
The best way to come up with a number is to wait until you are almost on reserve have someone follow you in another vehicle with extra gas and as soon as your low fuel warning light comes on or your main fuel tank runs empty causing you to move the fuel valve to reserve pull over and zero your trip meter. Proceed to ride in the majority of places you normally drive in at your usual speed. When you run completely out of fuel check your trip meter and that mileage is how far you can travel on reserve under normal conditions.
For additional peace of mind to establish maximum MPG on reserve when you get into a sticky situation where you don't know if you can make it to the closest gas station repeat the above procedure with the following exceptions.
1. Drive in the highest gear possible at the lowest rpm without lugging the engine.
2. If you are on a flat level freeway or open road get up to 60 MPH pull in the clutch hit the kill switch shutting the engine off and coast until 20 MPH then put the kill switch to run and pop the clutch and repeat the process.
3. If there is a long downhill grade put the bike in neutral with the engine off and coast.
4. The best insurance to keep from getting stranded is:
a. Keep your bike finely tuned well maintained.
b. Always have a cell phone with you.
c. Invest in an "AAA" card.

93 ford thunderbird turns over starts but then dies immediately as if out of gas

possible failed fuel pump from running dry in the tank. The plastic gears are very fine and without fuel to lubricate them they fail on a regular basis To rely on a low fuel light is asking for trouble from a number of sources in the car.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

I filled my gas tank with regular gas and 5 mins later the check engine light came on and the low fuel light came on. I turned the car off and let it sit for an hour. I made sure the gas cap was on...

Im faily certain you have a problem with your fuel sending unit. Im not sure how common that is with Chevy Malibus but i replaced that in my 98 jeep cherokee and that did the trick.

Im having a similar problem with the engine light being on-

Most vehicles will sense that the tank is not sealed, will turn on a light. Depending on the make of car, may have to drive several hours, several starts, etc. before it resets itself after you correct the gas cap problem.
