Will not idle, run away high rives

Idle screw backed out all the way, throtle is closed, air cleaner is clean.
Engine still runs away at very , very high RPM. so high of RPM the kill switch won't shut it off. I used the chain on a log to slow the engine down and then the kill switch works.

I have a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard 16 HP motor. It idles fine and it runs OK at high RPMS. But it backfires thru the carburetor during accelerating. Any suggestions?


On some float-type carburetors, you can adjust the air-fuel mixture and engine speed at idle. Check for an idle speed screw designed to keep the throttle plate from closing completely, and an idle mixture screw that limits the flow of fuel at idle. If your carburetor contains these screws, proceed below.
  1. With the engine off, remove the air filter and air cartridge.
  2. Locate the idle mixture screw and turn it clockwise until the needle lightly touches the seat. Then, turn the screw counterclockwise 1-1/2 turns.
  3. If your carburetor has a main jet adjustment screw at the base of the float bowl, turn the screw clockwise until you feel it just touch the seat inside the emulsion tube. Then, turn the screw counterclockwise 1 to 1-1/2 turns. Replace the air cleaner assembly and start the engine for final carburetor adjustments.
  4. Run the engine for five minutes at half throttle to bring it to its operating temperature. Then, turn the idle mixture screw slowly clockwise until the engine begins to slow. Turn the screw in the opposite direction until the engine again begins to slow . Finally, turn the screw back to the midpoint.
  5. Using a tachometer to gauge engine speed , set the idle speed screw to bring the engine to 1750 RPM for aluminum-cylinder engine or 1200 RPM for engine with a cast-iron cylinder sleeve.
  6. With the engine running at idle , hold the throttle lever against the idle speed screw to bring the engine speed to "true idle." Then, repeat the idle mixture screw adjustments from Step 4 to fine-tune the mixture .

97 pathfinder shutoff when u step on the brakes hard, now when I start it


The first thing is to make sure the truck is running good. A misfiring truck would cause a low idle and stall.
If the truck runs good then look at the throtle body, a dirty throtle plate will cause a stall and lower than normal idle. If its dirty use a tooth brush and some throtle body cleaner to clean plate. make sure to open the throtle plate by stepping on gas pedal or by hand where the gas pedal cable connects to throle body.


I would check the throtle plate first, also make sure air filter is good.

If all is clean, (plate) and engine is running smooth and no check engine light is on then i would check the idle air control valve.





GOOD DAY.

Chain saw will idle, but not run at full throtle


First, check the air filter and clean it well. Then make sure the spark plug is clean and gapped properly.

Then prime, start it up, and allow it to idle, even using the trigger to make it fast idle if you can. Using a small thin screwdiver, turn the high speed idle screw on the carb in small increments to the right, kepping the speed up on the trhrottle.

The idea is to screw it out until it sputters, then screw it a half turn back in. If it doesn't smooth out when turning it to the right, try going to the left.

Afterwards you may find it doesn't run at low throttle well. If not, try the same thing starting to turn left until it smooths out. If it doesn't, screw to the right. Again, the idea is to go until it sounds rough, then back off a half turn.

You should be able to adjust it to the point where you can open the throttle all the way with smooth sure throttle increase.

Car starts at high idle for a few seconds, When your driving it is fine but if you have to stop it idles really low and dies. It is a 200 Ford Focus XL.


check for any vaccum lines that may be unplugged.
then remove the air intake tube and clean the black carbon build up from around the throttle plate.use a clean rag only.i think whats happening is at an idle the plate is all closed but for just a little bit for the idle.carbon closes this off and is causing the engine to die at idle.
clean the carbon out very carfully and using some carb cleaner.

hope this helps
keep me posted

IAC Valve Location - 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee


The idle air control valve is located on the back of the throttle body. It has an oval electrical connector and two torx screws holding it in. Unplug the connector, remove the two screws then lightly tap the body with a soft faced mallet to loosen it from the body. 
Once you have it out and prior to installing a new valve clean the seat inside the throttle body where the idle control fits. This must be very clean! Installation is in the reverse order. 
 To save some cash, pull the valve out and clean it with throttle body cleaner, this usually fixes the problem for quite a while.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Will not run at an idle


Try this, it is the common reason for this problem.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

S10 has very high idle when cold and sticks to the gas when warm


you need to replace the throtle body controll sensor. Also you may want to make sure all your linkage from the pedal to the throtle body is cleaned and lubed correctly. While playing in this direct area. Your throtle body is only 4 bolts away. Why not get some carb cleaner and get to know your truck just a litle more.

If this is a carborator, then you need to turn my warmup idle down. there are 2 sets of idles on carborators. the one to warm up the engine, automatic choke or pin settings. Get a Chilton, find out which idles pin is for what. and play a litle bit.

I think you have a throtle body so I would also check the automatic air intake sensor. It could be going bad. Check your filter and make sure its clean.

hope all this helps.
