What to do to correct the problem of my bike will start run 1 to 2 min then quit I can give it gas it still does it wait 5 min it will do the same thing again.


Hi David check the fuel supply from the tank. Turn off the tap then pull the pipe off the tap or carb then turn fuel on there should be a good steady flow if not there is a blockage. There is a filter in the tank you will need to remove the tank and then the fuel tap. Also check along the fuel line for blockage. And make sure the vent in the filler cap is ok. Regards Jim...

What is oil capacity of the bmw x5 3.0d 2004 facelift model?


Hi,I have same vehicle myself and I work at the Bmw dealer.
Officially the 3.0D takes 7 litres when you also change the filter.0fficially but in practise its a bit less as,some of the old oil will always be left behind.
Buy 2x 4 litre containers of 5w 30 or 0w40 ,pour in 6.5 litres ,start the engine and stopped it and wait 5 mins for the oil to drain to sump and check level.You will find that the dipstick is on the MIN mark and you just fill it up until slightly over the MED mark.
DONT overfill...best to run it on MIN than overfilled.

2006 VW GOLF TURBO DIESEL 1.9 STARTS UP GOES 5 TO 9 MILES STALLS WAIT 5 MINUTES GO AGAIN AND STALLS


Hi. It would be useful to get a code read and some live data from a decent diagnostic tool. There are quite a few possible causes including, pressure in tank - if the fuel tank can't vent pressure then a vacuum will eventually form stopping fuel getting to the engine, this will cause it to loose power and stall. Then after a few mins the pressure will drop and the process start again, easy test is when the car stalls remove filler cap - if that's the fault there will be an audible hiss and the car will start up again.

part blocked exhaust will have same problems but will more generally cause a lack of power and acceleration.
are there other symptoms? i.e only when conering or only when pulling off or stopping, engine light on/off. Jon

Johnson 115 V4 no push at low revs and no oil alarm at hi revs


Good Morning George,
First Thing To Do Is Use Pre Mixed Fuel Until This Problem Is Solved Or Engine Damage Could Be The Result.
Pre Mix Fuel -Oil Ratio Is 50:1
Have You Tried Priming The Oil With The Primer On The Oil Tank Supply Line?
Is The Oil Tank In The Boat Low On Oil?
Let Me Know If You Have Any Luck!

My 1997 grand am runs rough, theres oil around the 1 spark plug, if it sits and runs for a 10-15 min it will start to get hot. also the gas gauge will say 1/2 tank then after a mile or 2 it will say 1/4 ...


Those are troubled cars and older ones are even more troubled with problems I would sell it and get anything but a pontiac and a dodge stay away warning! warning! You got high miles on that ? Its a money drain.

How many quartz of oil are required in a oil change? what is the proper oil level on the dip stick?


level should be on max if its hot or just below the middle if cold. in order to top up oil we do it in two stages leave cold slowly fill to bottom mark, then wait 5 mins check again should be around middle if not add another 100 mils wait check again. then run car for 10 mins stop engine wipe dip stick clean then check again level should be slighty under top mark this should answer your question

Skoda Octavia Ambiente 2004 1.9 tdi, automatic gear: Problem1: board alarm, Glow plug system remains on at starting and contiune to flush in running. Engine starts hardly second or third time. Problem2:...


problem one is the timer control for the heaters ,also check the heaters that they are working ,oil problem ? look under the rubber boot that goes over the oil switch ,pull it back and if oil under the cover renew the oil switch,these motors do suffer from heater light flashing on and i know people have spent megabucks trying to cure it ,its a fault with dash and printed circuits ,but the heaters are not coming on i know because i have driven one with the heater circuit light coming on and i had a extended light on a long wire and the heaters are not coming on ,ignore it just renew the faulty glow plugs,as for EGR valve just pull teh vacumn pipe off the ERG valve and leave disconnect ,more hassle than its worth changing it ,you could end up with a ECU computer .Still a nice reliable motor though and economical
