Your unit sounds too lean, but at 700 miles, you need to have the dealer repair it, or risk warranty validation issues....

2000 triumph thunderbird sport speedometer reading slow. Normal to 20mph then drops progressively to 80mph at which point the speed is only 60mph. Checked on my GPS.

Most likely dirt or something on the pickup.These are electronic speedos and operate thru the computer.Pull the pickup out and clean it.Would but imagine is just plugged into transmission.

My '01 impala 3.4 v-6 flat spots when COLD, at around 20mph. the idle is ruff with random misfires. acceleration is overall poor. when HOT, most symptoms go away leaving only some slight acceleration...

depending on mileage, but possible tune-up could fix it. if already done then check ignition coil pack and ignition wires also spark plugs, check vacuum hoses for leaks or porous, last injectors clogged - use some techron fuel injector cleaner (wal-mart has them). Also get the throttle body and iac valve cleaned by throttle cleaner . Also this other possibilities are to be checked and confirmed.:---- Engine running rough or misfiring can be cause by the following:

1.Defective spark plugs
2.Inadequate spark/coil, defective spark plug wire.
3. Lack of compression
4.False air leakage.
5. Faulty fuel injectors.
6. Insufficient fuel pressure.
7. Contaminated fuel.
8. EGR valve that is leaking.
9. Oxygen sensors.
10. Throttle position sensor.
11. Manifold absolute pressure sensor
12.Mass Airflow Sensor
13.Idle air control valve

--------- This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

Onan performer p220 ohv will run fine then get very rough at high speed and idle. Has new fuel pump, all hoses are new and tight, and new fuel filter. Would appreciate ideas on what to check next

there should be 2 screw controls labeled "H" and "L"...these are the carb adjustments for low speed and high may need to adjust them to get the best possible response between low and high throttle only need to get it started and then slowly turn the "L" control until it idles smoothly..then move on to the "H" control and while going from low idle to high with the throttle trigger adjust it slowly until you get a good, smooth response from low to high

Motorcycle poor running

Have you checked your fuel floats ,You may be suffering from high speed fuel starvation .try adjusting you floats to allow the maximum fuel into your carbs with out over flowing .You could also check to compression on the cylinders ,you may have a compression problem at high speed ,and this will cause hunting untill your engine gathers momentum and drives through it .

Can you tell the location of the idle speed valve on a 1998 escort gti please

You will find idle speed controllers in the area of the throttle plates. In order to work, air must bypass the throttle plates.

Need to know the lo and hi speed carburetor adjustments on a shindaiw 577 chain saw and which is the hi and the lo speed screws.

The low speed screw (air flow) will be the one the throttle plate arm rests against. The high-speed screw (fuel flow) will be closer to the cylinder, downstream from the throttle plate, nearer to the fuel supply line. Start with 1/2 to one turn out from lightly seated and go 1/8th to 1/4 increments, opening until the saw starts, idles evenly and runs well under a solid cutting load. Make sure the carb air filter, spark plug, fuel and carb are all clean! The carb jet tips should be sharp, even and worn grooves or bent/broken tips. Two-cycle saw and garden tool engines should start quite easily (three to four pulls or even less) if the cyl. compression is good and they are adjusted properly.

Lawn mower chugging

better late than never, I have the same mower

there is no throttle control on these mowers, if you look under the air filter the throttle is balanced by a spring pulling in one direction and a lever controlled by engine speed. if the spring breaks or falls off the lever will wiggle back and forth, more gas if the engine slows, less if it speeds up. you end up going fast/slow/fast/slow etc.

The tension spring slows the switching down and smooths out the engine speed.
