There is a electrical connection on the secondaries of the fuel system. Try unplugging this connector. And see if the bike runs normal then.

RPM's rev high and low

"Could this be a throttle positioning sensor problem?" - probably not. The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) tells the computer how hard you are stepping on the gas. It does not really control idle speed.

Your problem is more likely the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. This is a small electric valve that the computer can open and close in small steps to set the idle RPM at the desired point (a little higher when cold, then down to normal speed when warm). The IAC valve is notorious for getting all crudded up inside. Then it sticks open too much (really fast idle speed) or sticks shut (really low speed).

You can try taking it off the engine, cleaning it with carb cleaner spray, and putting it back on. That is easy and cheap.

If cleaning does not fix it, you need to buy a replacement valve and put it on. Pretty easy to do but costs more $$$.

My 1998 buick regal gs shuts off when i stop and i notice that the rpm moves back and forth

Usually when the engine is "hunting" for the idle speed, the throttle position sensor or idle air control valve is faulty, or there is gunk in the throttle body, or a vac leak somewhere.
The computer controls the idle speed by using that control valve.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

I have a 03 mazda 6 that the accelerator will surge up to about 3500 rpm and will not idle down when stopping at a light. It starts doing this after running about 20 minutes. If I kill the engine and...

Have it scanned for fault codes as an indicator of the problem. If the throttle valve is gummed up, cold temps can cause it to stick. But diagnose first!

Looses power at 3500 rpm

Blocked gas filter is most noticeable at HIGH SPEEDS.

If it looses power at only 3500 or so rpm's, most likely culprit is the throttle position sensor also known as TPS.

Does ur engine burn oil? Could be low compression, but unlikely.
Could alsobe, but unlikely, the coil giving a weak spark.

Whats ur mileage and is it an automatic tranny or manual? Give more details please as to what ur car does, IE sputters, jerks, weird noises, engine revs high but car doesn't go faster, etc.
