MC Dies upon ANY throttle application. HELP!


Odds are that if it sat for a year with fuel in it, the carb may be gummed up. Opening the throttle will cause an immediate engine stop if it is not getting fuel.

I'd recommend a "clean out the carb" project, including using air to blow out allof the small orifices.

Husqvarna 340 chainsaw will only run for a few seconds on choke, tried cleaning carb, carb adjustments do not help. will not run at all with choke off.


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other problems. Make sure that you have fresh fuel mix in the tank (50:1 ratio). Mix the fuel/oil in it's own container and shake the container thoroughly just before adding to the tank each time to prevent oil starvation. When you were cleaning the carburetor, did you check the condition of the lower diaphragm for flexibility with no holes or cracks? Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back each out CCW 1-1/2 turns. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust the H jet needle CW until the engine starts to speed up. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L jet needle CW for better idle, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Hope this helps!

My bike runs rough idleing and at slow speeds. It


Check for intake leaks where the carburetor manufolds connect to the heads, when it is running at idle dpray WD40 around the area if the idle increases there is a intake leak.
reolace the gasket/gaskets,and since the carb will be off clean it or have a mechanic do it.

How do I increase the idea on a 98 HD heritage springer


If you're talking about the idle speed of the engine, there is a small stop screw on the right hand side of the carb. where the cables attach to a round metallic disc. This disc is part of the throttle shaft. The wider it opens, the faster the engine runs. The idle stop screw regulates the postion of the throttle shaft when the carb is fully closed by the cables. Adjusting the screw inwards increases the idle speed.

I hope this is the information you are looking for. If not, please repost. Good Luck!

Starts and idles and runs half speed ok -- dies off on full throttle fuel lines & filter ok has ffuel in tank good spark & new plug muffler & screen & ports open clean good compression


Since you don't indicate the make and model, I can't give you specifics, but when I had this problem it turned out to be a dirty carb. This can cause uneven fuel flow and loss of power. At full throttle, you may not be getting sufficient fuel to work properly. Try cleaning the carb a nd update this with the results.

The engine cuts out after it heats up


This seems to be a common issue as of late, i'd tighten up your idle adjustment so you can run at full throttle with no issue. The tiller's oil should be at the lower lip of the dip stick's access threading while the unit is laying face down (gas tank down). Clean up your carb as well and change your plug/filter, if this doesn't work than you're probably looking at some simple carb adjustments, but the fact it dies after 10 minutes of use makes me think it's running either dirty or too rich.

Will only run with full choke and absolutely no throttle.


Carbs gummed up. Need a serious cleaning or a full ruubers replacement/rebuild kit. Gas turns to gummy when left stting in the fuel bowls.

Use a couple of cans of Sea Foam.. best stuff in the world.

1998 honda shadow will not start


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a few possibilities you may want to check/explore:
  • stale gasoline;
  • clogged fuel filter (inside the tank above the fuel shutoff valve;
  • clogged, bocked, varnished, gummed carbs, jets, air pin holes;
  • stuffed air filter/box;
  • vacuum leak (rubber coupling, manifold side);
  • air leak (airbox base assembly seated/fitted on the carbs.
Basically, a general cleanup of the fuel lines, tank and the carbs. Sitting for some time tends to leave varnish like coating on most parts.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Harley Davidson street glide idles low and sometimes dies at stop signs?


Possible cause is a crack in the fuel filter shell which is installed inside the fuel tank. Harley has a recall for affected models. Post your VIN number or go to your local dealer and ask him is there a recall for your bike. All he will need is the VIN number and any recalls will be done under warranty. By the way, not sure of the year of your bike but it may still be under warranty anyway. Other than that there could be a TP sensor fault.
