Idling Issue I have an idling issue with my sportsman. It runs fine, however when i come to a stop it dies. It will fire right back up if I give it a little gas. I adjusted the idle and that did not solve the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks.

SOURCE: engine on my 04 sportsman 400 wo'nt idle unlesss

there is an electronic position sensor in the throttle housing and if the throttle cable sticks even a little the sensor interrupts the flow of electricity and disables the engine to prevent loss of control so chase down your cable and lubricate it and make sure you have full range of movement

I have a 1993 ford festiva its a good little car it runs good when the engine is cold but when it warms up it sputters and dies on me when it dies it fires right back up like nothing ever happened It...


If it has an automatic choke, this will keep it revving more when the engine is cold and less when hot. Maybe adjust the idle setting screw on the carburettor so it revs slightly more. Try that before it is running hot. Only increase the revving gradually to the stage where stalling would be avoided when hot. Gradually so that there is not too much revving when cold. Adjusting and testing over a few runs could be a good strategy

Idling Issue with Sportsman 600

1996 sportsman 400 wont idle. Had the carb cleaned by a "mechanic" after the bike took off wide open and driver was injured. He said the float stuck and he "fixed" the problem. Now...


I have NEVER heard of a float sticking and causing that issue. Sounds to me like the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) on the right handlebar isn't or wasn't adjusted. There is a thumb nut on the throttle cable coming out of the ETC switch. Loosen the screw and turn the cable in or out to get 1/16 to 1/8 inch freeplay on the thumb throttle. Too loose and it won't idle, too tight and it will pull the throttle cable tight and rev engine. It could also be a carburetor issue if it runs with choke. Either the idle screw isn't adjusted or the pilot jet is plugged. There is a large thumb screw coming off the carburetor, turning clockwise will turn the idle up. Let me know if you need anything else, Daniel.

03 winstar won't start, shakes ,back fires, fires 3times dies.


More than one issue, maybe? Also consider other experts' solutions.

First, it sounds like the EGR valve is sticking open. The exhaust valve is supposed to be closed when idling, otherwise open. It recirculates exhaust back into the manifold; can't idle car very well when the valve is open, but should not cause backfire.

Backfire, is generally an ignition timing issue: the ECM (electronic control module) is responsible for that. Check it / replace it.

Worst case: small break in one of the head gaskets (not likely, but symptom is the same).

Vacuum leak, too???

Hope this gets you pointed in the right direction!

My 1999 Alero has been stopping, especially while idling at a stop light. As long as the car is in perpetual motion, it runs relatively fine. When it stops, the engine oil light and the batter light come...


You don't have right AIR: GAS ratio of 14.6:1 at idle. If you don't have idle adjustment, you need to have throttle valve clean.
If it doesn't work, then your Fuel Distributor is drifting out of calibration.
Don't worry about check engine light comes on when the engine dies. It is designed that way.
