2000 lincoln ls will run high on rpms without kicking into gear...sometimes it will kick in while car is reving in the 2 or 3000 range and it will buck...other times i can be going 60 and it will fall out...


The first thing to check is the fluid level in the transmission. If quite low, look for red leakage on the floor where you park. Suggest you find a quality auto transmission shop to check this out before you require very expensive service. Good luck!

Yz450f that quit running


Yes, it does have an automatic decompression mechanism. It is a centrifugally operated mechanism and it is EXTREMELY unlikely that is causing your problems.
The two highest probabilities are:
1. Fouled spark plug. Forget what it looks like, put a BRAND NEW plug in. It is the cheapest form of diagnosis you can do. These bikes are terrible about fouling spark plugs and a fouled plug produces the exact symptoms you described.
2. Inspect your valve clearance. Tight valves will also make the bike hard/impossible to start with the kick starter. In some cases, it can be push started, but still won't kick. With tight valves, the bike, although hard starting, will run pretty good, for awhile. Eventually it will burn the valves and quit running though.
If your bike isn't kick starting fairly easily, something is wrong and needs to be addressed. The only other issue is making sure the idle speed is set per the service manual. These bikes have a fairly high idle, some as high as 1700 rpms. If it is set too low, it makes them hard to start too.

High rpms at start, stuck in gear


You have a sticking spool in the valve body of trans or, low trans fluid. The fluid you can take care of. The trans shouldb e taken to shop for confirmation its the valve body and repair.Good luck.

Starts and runs. Needs choke to sta running except high rpms,


SOUNDS LIKE IT'S RUNNING LEAN. TRY PULLING THE FLOAT BOWLS OFF THE CARBS AND CLEANING THE JETS. ESPECIALLY IF IT SAT FOR A LONG TIME. FUEL TURNS TO GEL.
