Back fires when I shift up in gear

If it backfires immediately when you engage the clutch and release the throttle, you have a carburetion issue. Fuel mixture is too rich at idle. (If you have fuel injection, your controller is set too rich at idle.)

My 91 Dakota starts hard and runs rough for a while and the check engine light stays on (no one around here has an analyzer for this year). After running a few miles you can shut it off and start it back...

Probably you have a lean fuel mixture for cold start up and running, but performs normal when the engine has reached operating temperature. So check all items responsible for fuel mixture such as fuel pressure and flow, air leaks ( use a smoke machine for this) choke system ( if carburetted) , engine coolant temp sensor.

My 1991 Suzuki sierra stalls when I come to a stop or slow down I've rebuilt the carby amd cleaned everything

If carbureted it sounds like your idle circuit is messed up. Either that or idle is set too low. If possible you should try to adjust the idle mixture to factory settings. If that isn't possible due to emissions related stuff. you'll need to double check your pilot jet for obstructions

I have a carbureted 86 22r pickup. It runs perfect when cold. As soon as the choke pulls off the idle is rough. I have already ruled out the fuel shut off solenoid. It is clean and operates perfectly....

It could be that you have to adjust the idle mixture screw a little . It may be set too lean or too rich which gives what you describe When the engine is at operating temperature turn the screw in or out a bit until the motor runs better. Adjust then until it starts to run rough then screw it the other way until it starts to run rough again. Correct mixture will be in the middle of those points.

My zzr 250 92 model when started has excessive rev and acceleration i have lubricated all moving carby parts and acceloration cable aswell please help

The fuel mixture is probably running too lean. Old, hardened rubber seals between the carb and the cylinder are letting un-carbureted air into the fuel/air mix.

Idles high and misses when cold. after you run it for a while it runs normal

You didn't say whether your bike was fuel injected or carbureted. A fuel injected bike or a carbed bike with the enricher pulled out will idle high. It is supposed to. Now, it should not miss though. It might be time for a new set of spark plugs. The enricher runs a very rich mixture and will foul a plug if you run it too long. I always tell people to only run the enricher just long enough so you can keep the bike running with the hand throttle. Turn the enricher off as soon as possible to prevent fouling a plug. If the bike is fuel injected, you'll have to take it back to the dealer to have it adjusted.

Good Luck

Were is the automatic choke situated my car is revving to high

Your car doesn't have a choke. Fuel injected engines alter the mixture using information from the sensors to give the right mixture all the time, thus negating the need for a choke. This is only for carbureted engines, and your car is not. If it's idling fast, you can change the settings on your idle set screw, or have it tuned.

What causes high co percentage in emission test

Measured in percent, this is the result of incomplete combustion. In other words, the fuel mixture has been compressed and ignited, but could not complete the combustion process due to the lack of oxygen. This failure is always mixture or ignition timing related. The ideal reading for CO is 0%. A normal reading for CO is usually around .25 to .75% with 1.2% being the failure mark in most areas for vehicles 1984 and newer. Earlier cars are allowed higher readings. Any car equipped with an Oxygen sensor will try to run under 1.0% as measured before the Catalytic converter (use that test connection for set-up). A vehicle with a CAT, O2 sensor, and an AIR system (Air Injection Reaction) will read almost 0% with everything working properly.

Smaller jets in the carb, less oxygen in the air means, you got to have less fuel in the mixture otherwise wham to much nox and no pass the mans law...
