1987 Evinrude E60TLCUC start and will idle but,when trying to icrease speed engine shuts off. I can keep a slow idle speed.


If that has a carburetor then the main jet is clogged and it is running simply from the idle circuit - ergo carb has to be thoroughly cleaned out. . If it is EFI then the hassle could be with the control board that controls the timing. If the timing is not advanced when you rev the motor it will shut down.

Evinrude will not start


Bad gas is one thing, 2nd may be dirt in carbs, 3rd fuel filter etc. May cracks in prime bulb. Lot of little things happen when set for some time w/o running. good luck

I own a 1998 mazda 626 last week had the alternater changed and the car ran good for about a week now the car will start sometimes and sometimes it wont but when im driving it i have to keep the gas p


Engine stalls cold or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If the above cleaning doesn't cure your issues you need to have the computer controlled automatic idle speed control system diagnosed and repaired by a dealer or electronic engine control repair shop.

1992 Lexus S300 Automatic. Car drive perfectly fine. Problem is sometime when I start the car, it should idle and shut off within 5 seconds. Doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes. Sometimes it d


Without any other symptoms it is hard to diagnose; could be water in the fuel or a plugged up air filter, that effects idle first, take it out and see if it idles fine, if so get a new one. Take out fuel filter and dump in a glass bowl and analyse for water... get a new one... Is it different when the engine i hot or cold?

I have a Vizio 42 in LCD, model VO420E. The TV makes a loud screeching noise, the screen goes crazy and then shuts off and starts again. There sometimes is a pop. Other times the TV just makes the POP...


Hi well what's happening is that the "Protection circuitry" in the SMPSU has/is detecting a potentially catastrophic fault, and to stop a fire AND EXPLOSION OR INDEED BOTH, IS ATTEMPTING TO SHUT THE SET DOWN FOR SAFETY REASONS, HOWEVER AFTER IT SHUTS DOWN, THE "FAULT" APPEARS TO "GO" AND THEN THE SMPSU STARTS UP AGAIN , ONLY TO DETECT THE FAULT AND SO ON... USUALLY ENDLESSLY OR UNTIL COMPLETE FAILURE OCCURS.
What to do, well in all reality DIY is NOT feasible unless one has LOTS of experience, test gear, tools, isolation transformer, and a service manual. So, contact the local or head office from VIZO, ask them for a referral to an authorised service center, hopefully a local one? in any event, make face to face contact here and ONLY ask first for a "Quote" as to prospective costings and go from there, this way at least you can make up your mind as to repair or replace?

Sounds like you're loading up with fuel. I'd check the fuel pressure regulator. Some engines are set up with a regulator inside the intake plenum, which requires plenum removal.

TV turns on and off constantly.


this is the heat detection circuit that detects to much heat in the set , cleaning the inside of the set of lint , dust , ect may stop it or it has just been dirty to long and that circuit will now have to be replaced
