My brother does floors and I used to help him work on them.When we had that problem we either had to replace bent valves or replace a bent rod and adjust rocker arms

    I forgot to say I would check the rocker arm adjustments first.It's no guarantee,but out of all the pioneer models we had that was a vast majority.Most of the time cause by the high torque speeds and getting in a quick bind such as buffing under the edge of a shelf and it gets caught in a tight spot..The intake and exhaust could slightly be off so I would check the adjustments behind the valve cover.It's been a while and I remember it was a v-twin or a tecumseh twin engine.Also check and make sure the rods are perfectly straight.Some can be slightly bent just a little.

Did you check the airfilter/prefilter?
And did you check if the engine adjustments were right like
the amount of gas/air?
Sometimes the membrane of the gas valve get stuck or get dirty.
Or sometimes one of the little tubes are torned

Upon installing deq 9200....a humming sound exist as i pedal my gasoline

Check your ground wires. Power and audio need to be ran on opposite sides of the vehicle. Try re grounding the radio the a new location. make sure all grounds are connected to bare metal.

Everything is connected but there is no sound coming through

was it working before you put the vehicle in storage? if just the audio is not working, there is no code. as far as i know pioneers do not have security codes. you might want to check your speaker wires and speakers for shorts and bare wires.

I am installing a stereo in my car and the previous owner cut the wires and the labels are gone. The stereo I am installing has 4 wires other than the speaker wires. They are: +Battery(Yellow), ACC (Red),...

Here you go.
Radio Side -- Car side
12v (Yellow) -- Orange/Black
ACC (Red) -- White/Black
Ground (Black) -- Black or chassis ground(bare Metal)
Pwr Ant (Blue/white) -- Pink
If your not adding and amplifier than your system remote should be used for power antenna which is the pink.
Hopefully this helps

No sound from speakers

did you check to make sure your vehicle didnt come with a factory amp, if it has one is it turning on? or did you remember to disconnect the negative battery cable while installing your radio, i know thats a dumb question, once i was installing a pioneer a barely crossed a couple wires and fried the radio, the radio itself worked fine and all the features etc, but it never did play sound again. i always disconnect the power now!!

I closed my Eclipse editor after usual work; and i came on next day to office,try to open it ,but not getting opened by saying "An error has occured .see the log file"

Start by looking at the last line:

MESSAGE Missing required bundle org.eclipse.gef_0.0.0.

Looks like it can't find the GEF (graphical editing framework) libraries. They should be in your eclipse/plugins directory - if not, download a fresh copy from and extract into the plugins directory.

Can you post the output after doing this, so we can see if the Quantum / OSGI libs are missing too?
