Your pilot needs to be scanned thoroughly at a dealer.

Sounds like it has an air leak. Try spraying some carb cleaner around the intake manifolds while it's running and see if it makes a difference in the sound.

How do i get rid of the tick from the motor. plugs changed spring 2013, run cleaners and additives nothing seems to be working, should I be concerned? second the front cylinders coughs at idle?


Engine ticks on a regular beat in tune with the rpm of the engine indicates a loose / burnt manifold gasket on a particular cylinder or a cracked manifold near a particular cylinder. It could also be a loose/ blown head gasket at the cylinder that is coughing at idle.

1979 Honda CBX will not idle


Hi, Anonymous you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the choke off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air-fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air-fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air-fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air-fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

My craftsman chainsaw is pretty new, and it isn't starting properly. When it does start, it has a tendency to cut out during use. I adjusted the idle time, a few times, cleaned the air filter, and checked...


There will be three screws on the carb, the tick over screw, a L screw which ajust the mixture from idle to half throttle, ans a H screw which adjusts the fuel running speed, they are both fuel screws not air screws, start with a basic settinf of one and a half turns on each from closed, with the saw idling gently screw the L screw in, the revs will start to increse as the mixture weakens off, it will reach a point where it starts to die, at this point start unscrewing the L screw, the revs will increse again and then start to die because its too rich, now turn it in 10 minutes on a clock face, check that it revs cleanly,adjust the idle screw so as the chain does not rotate around the bar, the H screw controls the max rpm, this should be set with a rev counter, it should not exceed 12500rpm

To begin with, if you are revving a cold engine to 6000 RPM, you are asking for a blown engine. Most OBD vehicles are equipped with a rev limiter that will cut off fuel at 3000 to 4000 rpm to prevent you from over-revving your engine and blowing it up. If yours is revving to 6000 RPM cold, then the rev limiter, for some reason is not working while it is cold. I have no explaination for this. The best thing I can tell you is to stop revving your engine so high when it is cold unless you really want to see what an engine looks like after is has gone off like a grenade.

Sounds like an Exhaust Manifold leak on only one cylinder. The Gasket is probably blown out. Check around where manifold is bolted to the engine. Any leaks are usually evident by a black sooty deposit.

If you have runaway reving, you probably have a clogged MAP sensor.
