First check your oil level. If it is too high , your engine is full of gasoline. You will need to change your oil, drain the air box pollution tubes that hang down in front of the rear wheel (place a pan under the tube and pull out the plug , drain the tube , and replace the plug), check that the air filter is not saturated with oil (if so replace it). You may have a bad vacuum diaphragm on your petcock that is leaking gas into the motor. You can rebuild the the petcock with a K&L rebuild kit or replace it with a new one. You may have a sunk float or a worn or stuck float needle. Take the carburetors apart clean and inspect the components and replace as needed. Unfortunately, even a perfect motorcycle can have a float needle stick and fill the engine with gas forcing you to change your diluted oil. the only answer for this is to always turn off your fuel petcock when not riding.

1994 chrsyler lhs high idle problem

Disconnect the idle speed control valve (located at the throttle body) and see if the idle drops off or the engine stalls out completely. If the idle remains high you have a large engine vacuum leak, use a can of carburetor spray and spray around the top of the engine to locate it.

Check the IAC, (idle air control) remove the air intake to the engine, spray brake cleaner in the intake, pay attention to the square/round hole inside the inlet, spray it with cleaner, the car will be a bit hard to start at first. let me know if it works.

Take a spray bottle and put water in it and with engine running start spraying around the vaccum hoses and manifold intake, even ignition wires and are looking for vaccum leaks of some kind, or electical leaks. If the engine levels out at any point that you spray, inspect that area for a bad hose or leaking gasket. If it gets worse around the electrical wires, coil, ect, you can replace that componet. You will be able to buy an empty spray bottle at Automotive stores.

My 2003 honda cr250r doesn't idle at all

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

94 Toyota Camry has rough idle.

check for a small vacuum leak speciallythe lines going to the throtle have someone look at it while you seat onthe car , idle ,FOOT ON THE BRAKE ! a way to test for leaks if to spray a lil wd40 around the lines an listen if the idle gets better or worst, sometimes the reason the engine runs to rough or lean are vacumm lines that are slightly broken.

I have a 88 honda accord with carb that i cant get to idle down

Should be an idle adjusting screw on the side of the carburator that you can adjust to move your idle down.
