Have you checked you fuel petcock in the tank. These things are vacuum operated and are notorious for giving problems.

2000 Buell Blast runs great around town. Freeway speeds runs for 3 to 5 miles then out of nowhere dies. Acts like it's running out of fuel then dies. I have pulled the carb and cleaned the jets. C


If it starts up after sitting for a few minutes, (like 2 or 3) it could have a plugged fuel filter or the gas tank strainer built into the fuel valve could be plugged too. Drain the gastank anyway and change the gas with fresh. can't hurt. If it takes 15-30 minutes or after the bike cools some I would look at an ignition coil. Check to see if it has spark next time it quits.

Husqvarna 455 rancher Starts fine and runs great for about 5 mins. Stalls and wont restart until cold. Problem than repeats


Try removing the fuel cap for a moment to see it can be restarted immediately. If this works, check the fuel tank vent for plugging problems. Also, check for spark at the plug when it dies--if no spark, try a fresh plug gapped at 0.020". If nothing, the ignition module may be failing with heat. Good luck!

I have a 1978 dodge 440 in a motorhome and the engine turns over but as soon as I let off the starter it dies. It seems like its not getting power to the engine?


It could be many things so start with the easiest /cheaper first.Check your plugs , they will tell allot...white= too lean .black and/or wet =too rich .. clean and gap If your coil is old and not sparking hot enough it will sputter and stall . If your ground to the ignition is loose or corroded , same result. If the motor has noit been run for a long time ; replace spoark plug wires , coil , pioints, rotor , cap ( just replace the distributor with electronic etc.) . Put in fresh fuel (gas goes bad) and filter.You might run some carb cleaner or rebuild the carb , your start /idle jets might be plugged.Check all vacume conections , cracked or loose hose equals too lean to run when cold. If all else fails loosen the distributor and swivel small increments back and forth until it lights. Oh yeah , if your alternator is not putting out the motor will kinda start then die beause the battery cannot keep up.
Good luck

Viper engine on my earthquake tiller starts fine cold then dies after fifteen minutes and wont restart


You probably need a new coil, if it is a 2 stroke then it will almost certainly be the coil. The defect is very typical and recognizable.

Husky 455 dies out at full throttle or under load


Your carb may be the issue but your ignition coil could be the culprit. Once they start going bad, they can act up intermittently or give various symptoms from day to day. The fact that your saw dies at full load or under load, probably means that when your saw gets hot or requires more spark, your coil is not able to provide it. Your carb is easy enough to clean out, you can take it all apart and clean all screens, etc....

I just replaced my coil due to the exact same symptoms and now my saw runs great. $60 off ebay and you can put it on in 15 minutes yourself. Check your carb first though

68 Chevy Celebrity dies whenever it feels like it


No not the magnet, but the coil of wire that it inductes into when it passes, this tells the ignition module to fire the coil. Yes these fail all the time, they are usually ok until they get hot then then go "open"
