Question about Air Tools & Compressors

My Dayton siphon spraygun sputters.

I have cleaned it well several times but it still sputters. The sputtering is even with water thin viscosities. The fan is nice. Adjusting pressure, fluid doesn't seem to help.

Our 1987 chevy spectrum sputters after shifting and going up hills. It pretty much sputters all the time.Less sputtering at increased speeds. We've replaced the fuel pump,co2 sensor,catalytic...

Sputtering usually comes from uneven spark delivered by ignition system. Check which cylinder does it, or maybe cap-rotor and wires? Spray some water on cap and wires while motor is running and see if that will affect the motor.

My car is sputtering and a spark plug came out

I have a 1990 Buick Century with 3.3 v6. My car would sputter and the check engine light would come on and off while driving and the car would die when I came to a stop and tried to take off. I noticed my cooling fan turning on and off even when the car was not up to temp, and that is when the check engine light would come on. I changed the temp sensor and all is well.

I asked a friend about the sputtering of my car and his answer was theres a posibility that it may be my fuel pump..... is there a posibility that it is my fuel pump at all?

Well I would think that depends on the sputtering its doing. I would check my fuel filter for start. My trucks fuel pump went out and it would run and then stahl. It definetly did some sputtering, I guess you could say, between times. I had an internal water pump leak on a car I owned and it seemed to sputter the first few minutes and then it would sputter and glide and sputter and hop and it got me home at about 20 mles an hour which turned into a more of a knockin sputterin by the time I was cruisin into the driveway. I got lucky not having to get a tow cause it was internal which wasn't apt to leave me stranded as quickly. Im not a mechanic and sputtering takes on a few meanings to me so I would definitely look at a few more posts and maybe even clarifiy a little more.

Adjusting needle for optium spray pattern

There are a number of possible causes.
These are compounded by the different types of guns like HVLP and what would an older style. Also are you using a pressurized, gravity feed or siphon gun.
However, the reason for spatter is improper atomization of the air and paint. The most common causes are incorrect air flow or incorrect paint viscosity. If you don't have a way to check the viscosity get one. I painted in factory repair area that used a pressurized system. On any given day there might be 9 to 12 colors we used. Each one would have a different vis. Air adjustments could range from 50 psi. to 95 psi. This will hold true for almost any type of paint.

check and clean ignitor/spark plug clean fuel line and nozzle, drain and clean tank Check for water in fuel by tilting unit to have a low corner siphon fuel from that corner after 1 hr inspect for water.
