I added fuel additive to my fuel had timing chain done 2 days ago now It won't idle it dies and runs real rough at high RPM's. If you put it into drive gear kills motor.


Sounds like a spark plug or wire issue. Anytime the vehicle starts to skip, die, or (run rough) its usually these minor things. However if that does not help, start looking into your fuel system. Always try cheapest first. Plugs and Wires....Good luck...

2009 v star 1300 won't idle runs rough


Hi, Snakeman_982 the carburetor throttle shaft wheel has two cables the cable closest to the right side of the bike is the throttle cable and the one closest to the left side is the idle cable. Right about the middle between the two is the idle adjustment bolt it faces out towards the air filter end of the carb . The engine should be at operating temperature with the enrichener off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle adjustment bolt clockwise to increases idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease idle speed. If you have access to your air fuel mixture bolt you may adjust 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 bolt clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back it out 2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and adjust the idle adjustment bolt accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, adjust the air fuel mixture bolt 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture you are seeking the highest rpm your air fuel mixture bolt can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then readjusting the idle adjustment bolt 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 bolt all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

98 ford explorer high idle


Its either a faulty idle air control valve or a faulty fuel pressure regulator.My bet would be the idle air control valve. If you pull the vacuum hose off the fuel regulator or the map sensor and fuel runs out then the regulator is bad.If you replace the control valve then you have to reset the computer.

High Idle On Start-up.


Sounds like you have a intake leak. You're getting extra air into the mix until she fully warms up. Check where the throttle body meets the heads.

The problem is an air leak leaning the fuel mix. The idle speed starts going up a ramp until it is wide open. The valves no longer seating well is a possible cause as is air manifold gaskets, rings and a cylinder head not torqued down tight.
