Dunno - water in the gas or bad gas will do it every time. Drain the gas out of the tank and empty the carb. refill with fresh and run it. Some more info about what happened would be good too.

SOURCE: backfiring will not start without either

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

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.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
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. This process should get you back on the road.

Hi Cathy! It sounds like your car needs a good tuneup (new sparkplugs, sparkplug wires, distributor cap, fuel filter etc). The lack of power could be related to a bad fuel filter but could also be due to bad spark plugs, a crack in the distributor cap etc. A full tuneup will address all of these areas. Best of luck!

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.

Suzuki died on the Interstate at 65!


yes! purchase a can of Seafoam from Autozone $10 pour 1/3 can into two gallons of gas and get on an open highway... be safe though. Also drain all old gas out of the tank use an 89 octane, also replace 'fuel filter' it might be clogged and pre fill the filter with some Seafoam, and then if it wont start just try a push start and once you get it started keep it going, it might run rough the first couple of miles.if theres anything clogged up in the jets it'll probably clear it out.

Dies after running about 2 minutes


It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

2006 Arctic Cat ATV dies after about 15 minutes of riding


Sounds as if the gas tank is not breathing properly. The next time you run it, when it's about to die, loosen the gas cap. It should begin to run again. This is a sure sign that your gas cap is clogged. Clear gas cap of debris, or buy a new one.

Start with changing the fuel filter. If that doesn't do it, then change the fuel pump.
