Is the bike fuel injected? if its got carburators, it could be the return springs in the carbs themselves. if fuel injected, maybe a throttle position sensor?? also if carbed maybe the choke is sticking in the on position.

Car won"t accelerate over 30 mi/hr, gas pedal pushes back on foot, if a bump is hit the car drives as normal

when you say turbo has someone fitted a aftermarket turbocharger ?or is it a xjr with supercharger? what model is it ? xj40 or x300, the only connection with the throttle pedal I can think of is the cruise control or the gearbox kickdown cable. all the xj40,s had a kick down cable, the 3.2 x300, also. the 4.0l x300 was electronic. start by checking the throttle cable, pedal, and throttle body. if it has a kick down cable try car with cable disconnected.this sounds a strange one, love to drive it have been a jag tech for 40 years

My Victa push lawn mower won't shut off. Throttle cable pulls back but won't push forward and springs underneath housing seem extremely loose. What do I need to repair/replace?

Sounds like the inner throttle cable is binding with the outer casing,
This coule be caused by dust and moisture causing rust on the inner cable. I would firstly try to get a light spray lubricant into the outer casing .
I would disconnect it from the throttle lever and spray lubricant onto the inner cable and progressively work the throttle lever to draw the fluid into the outer case. Elevate the lower end so gravity will assist you.

Any fuel additives that work

My question is--- What Product that comes in a 16 oz
container & then diluted in 16 to 18 gallons of fuel,
would do much of anything?

So my answer is,there is nothing wrong with those
products & they won't hurt anything,but they won't do
anything either

So the answer is-- to properly diagnose the vehicles problems & try & return it, as close to new as built condition, as possible

You may have a Flat Spot in the TPS Sensor (throttle position sensor)
located on the throttle body. But that has to be tested

Also replacing the Oxygen Sensors closest to the engine,
every 80 to 100,000 miles, will give you better throttle response

My throttle its stuck on full what are the possible causes?

Hello.....Try this.....follow the throttle cable down to the carburetor..Check the spring return for the throttle...Try to close the throttle by hand...If there is no spring..the throttle won't close by itself....If the spring is in place...Your cable may need adjusting or sounds like the spring....check it out and let me know....I hope this was helpful....PEACE....

1996 sportsman 400 wont idle. Had the carb cleaned by a "mechanic" after the bike took off wide open and driver was injured. He said the float stuck and he "fixed" the problem. Now...

I have NEVER heard of a float sticking and causing that issue. Sounds to me like the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) on the right handlebar isn't or wasn't adjusted. There is a thumb nut on the throttle cable coming out of the ETC switch. Loosen the screw and turn the cable in or out to get 1/16 to 1/8 inch freeplay on the thumb throttle. Too loose and it won't idle, too tight and it will pull the throttle cable tight and rev engine. It could also be a carburetor issue if it runs with choke. Either the idle screw isn't adjusted or the pilot jet is plugged. There is a large thumb screw coming off the carburetor, turning clockwise will turn the idle up. Let me know if you need anything else, Daniel.

Spear and jackson, sht26X, the throttle won't

I suggest taking the handle apart to see if anthing is blocking the action of the trigger from inside, like some debris. Then see if the throttle cable moves if you pull it. If necessary keep tracking it back to the carburetor, maybe there is a piece of debris in there blocking the throttle lever on the carburetor.

2001 vmax My throttle has alot of play in it, which I can adjust, but when I get the bike warm, it won't stay at an idle. The idle will creep up to about 2500 rpm. Almost like the throttle cable...

Try lubing your cables and throttle mechanism first. Do your adjustment when the bike is warm. It sounds like you're making one of the cables too tight.

99 Plymouth Voyager takes long time to idle down after releasing gas pedal. Checked for loose vacum hoses but didn't find any. Throttle Cable is free and not sticking. Anything else I can check.

Have you taken time to remove air intake hose & spray clean throttle plate & intake of throttle body, using throttle body spray cleaner? Could be idle speed motor acting up , but lets try this first.
