The wife bought me a Wild Thing for Christmas at my asking. Went to use it on Saturday and it would not run for squat...I had to make my own Carb adjusting tool because they have changed the idle mixture screws to make it more painful to do...backout the L for Low Idle screw about 1/4 of a turn. Once you get it to idle and can actually slow the idle down enough so it runs correctly you can then fine tune the mixture at an idle. Then full throttle it and see if it runs ok there. If it does, your ready to go..If not, back it out, counterclockwise 1/8 to a 1/4 of a turn and see how well it runs. Basically from what I can tell, they did a really bad job of setting the carb at the factory!

Motor will start but it is hard to keep it at idle and the motor revs up and down cant seem to adjust it with the choke any help with this would greatly be appreciated


A bad Idle air control will cause this! your car will have abnormal idling. Highly fluctuating idling or sporadic stalling, You can remove the IAC and clean it with throttle body cleaner, It may be all carboned up, It is located on or near the throttle body. god-Bless! hope this helps you.This part regulates the air entering engine, if not enough vehicle will stall.

Please Help!!! Replaced ECM and truck immediately dies


Have checked the idle air control valve. If stuck closed it will not allow air to bypass the throttle therefore it will start and stall.

What's your problem?I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that runs great when driving but as soon as I stop and sit a minute it cuts off. I have noticed the car start stalling a little before it cuts off. Cou


Generally speaking, the common reasons for stalling are a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake thru the throttle body.
Those two issues would be checked first.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

Have an automatic transmission, 2001 Kio Rio. Problems when idling, sometimes high, sometimes low and will stall but starts right back up. I've replaced the Mass Air Sensor, spark plugs, air filter, coil....


It sounds to me like you have replaced everything except the most likely cause of your idle control problem...The Idle Air control. (IAC) (or Idle Speed Control Valve) It is located onthe throttle body and looks like the picture below.

I have a 98 VW Golf (ABA engine) it keeps stalling at idle. I saw that it might be the mass air flow sensor, so I unplugged it and it smoothed out and ran great. I replaced the sensor and it still stalls....


Try cleaning throttle body with throttle body cleaning fluid. You can pick this up at any auto supply depot. Just follow the instructions on the spray.

Idle seems too low. runs great, when no throttle, stalls. maybe idle too low. no manual, need to know where idle adjustment screw is


If you haven't already adjusted the carb there are usually 3 adjustments. H - adusts performance at full throttle (how it cuts in the wood). L - adjusts performance at idle and accelleration to full throttle.It sounds as though those are fine. The third adjustment T - is the throttle or idle speed (often away from the other 2). If my saw that is the one adjustment I'd make. You supplied no make or model, it is difficult to provide what you requested without them. HTH

The carb low idle needs to be adjusted this is fairly common among the Poulan chain saws. Once you adjust the low idle from factory setting it will work

Engine stalls


Sound like the clutch is not disengging. The springs in it are likely week. Take note as to weather the chain stops when it is idleing. If it seem to idle at a reasonable speed and the chain does not stop turning, the clutch is most likely the problem. This problem can be caused by trying to work the saw without the throttle wide open. When the clutch slips it creates heat wich will over heat, and weeken the springs used to disengage the clutch. It is also possible that it was defective when new.
