If your bike is carburated, install a new set of spark plugs and don't use the enricher as much. Harley's enricher is very rich and will foul the plugs is left on too long during warm up of the engine. I use the enricher to start the cold engine but as soon as I can keep the engine running without the enricher, I turn it off.

If your bike is fuel injected, you'll have to take it to the dealer or a shop to check for any "codes" that may be on the computer and recalibrate the fuel map.

Good Luck

means 02 sensor stuck at rich,
what is water temp in engine coolant, at failure? less than 150F?
could be lots of things.
leaking injectors, bad fuel.
injector sticking> causing misfire.
id use a scan tool and watch all sensor when it fails.
too high fuel pressure.
misfires cold, but only luke warm cold starts not fully cold.

just one DTC, no P0300 or 30x misfire codes, not even P0300 pendings?

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 with the 4.0L. It has approximately 150k miles on it. I started the Jeep with 1/4 tank of fuel in it and it started rough and acted like it was going to die....


long post.
ill reduce it for you.
misfires. (is RPM below 700 then misfire can be normal) for idle speed controls dead.
ISC the isc controls speed, of idle,.
mine stuck like zillion times, in 400k miles. endless.sticking
mine was a tiny gutless stepper motor drive ISC valve.
the cone valve is side gets nasty and sticks (
(PCV gases caused as seen on all engines)
i clean it.
the proof is the easy press of right foot easy raises idle back to 700rpm and engine stops misfiring.
ever get a tuneup this decade or running spark parts 500,0000 miles
for the new world record.?


now the tricky part of ISC, , fully explained in the SM serv. man.
the PCM learns its behaviors.
it learns all hot start settings and cold
so when you key on, it goes to the correct HISTORICAL spot.
if it can move there(sticks) engine car race.
or run too slow,
cold start would be worse, as hot isc is more closed
so if sticks there closed, the next cold start will be horrid
some newer manuals telly you to add 5% throttle if car is hard starting this is so common.

clean it. end story.

Idle speed around 2000 rpm, 1st ride of the year , had this issue. I followed my Manual info and adjusted Cold and Hot adjustments. When restarted the idle was close to normal, but after a minute or 2...


Adjust the idle speed ONLY when the engine is at full operating temp. It should be idled at about 1000 RPM. It will probably be too low when cold and you may have to use the throttle control to keep the engine running until it gets completely warmed up. On the carburetor equipped engines, you cannot adjust the bike where it will idle cold and not be too high when it gets hot. The only way you can get this is with fuel injected models.

What happened to your bike was all the oil that came out was in the engine crankcase and the scavenger pump scavenged it all out OK, that's where it goes out through the breather. How that happens is the oil after time seeps past the check ball that is supposed to keeps oil in the upper end somewhat to avoid drystarts etc.

Check your oil level now, add what you need, and ride.

the only other things I can think of mate without looking, is put your hand over the silencer at tickover (when engine cold) and see if the the exhaust is blowing from somewhere. A new gasket should sort that. If you dropped it on the timing cover side it might be worth a look in there to see if there is any damage.
