The reason can be:

  1. Bad or loose ignition (spark plug, magneto, coil cable etc);
  2. Water in the gas;
  3. Dirty fuel strainer;
  4. Not set on level surface;

Motor surges up down and shuts down starts rite up start surging again after it worms up


stalling and surges.
does a fast right foot , prevent the stall?
does the engine still have full power on demand?
key questions....
you key on and the Dash CEL must glow, does it?
if yes, then does it flash 12s running? on demand.?



1: old car, make sure compression x4 is good at 150PSI, tested wide open throttle. ?
2: did you tune it up, with all new spark parts from rotor to spark plugs and set the gap to 0.028" , then check the spark timing.

3: The ECU on this car dont make spark ,the 90 is a ECU does injection only, car, fuel, only, but does control IDLE.
Bad spark, is a bad dizzy. (or never tuned up, by the book)
All tune ups, end by checking the timing,,,, tis a fact.

4: stalling with out lost power is? (not above)
A: EGR stuck open (sticking).
the 50k service point, is to clean it, make sure its closes.
B: ISC bad, most 23 year old ISC are bad. ISC is electric.
C: the iAC is not bad as they only fail hot. (stuck open)
D: bad fuel.
E: bad injection....bad fueling , too little or too much.

My 05 pt cruiser engine revs up to 4000 rpm when I start it then it drops down and stauls


runs some good fuel cleaner through your tank to clean out gumming deposits and also get some throttle body cleaner and clean out throttle body.. Chevron tech is best cleaner out there .. When cleaning throthle out run engine and manually operate the gas pedal in engine area and open butterfly up and clean the gum off it as it will cause rpm to surge if not cleaned

Compressor tries to start but won't ...odd odor when fan runs....approx 8 year old unit... will trip surge protect power strip, but not 20 amp circuit..


IT PROBABLY IS OUT OF FREON AND AS IT TRIES TO START DUE TO THE LACK OF REFRIGERANT AND OIL IN THE LINE IT SHUTS OFF OR IT COULD BE A BAD STARTING DEVICE ON THE COMPRESSOR THAT POPS THE POWER TRIP.

Yamaha yg4000d generator Surges in the economy mode!


Economy mode is not really meant for use when you are working, more like when you are idling and using only a very small load, it must be run in Normal mode when driving the Normal load. As the Engines Rev's are "Tied" to the "Draw" from the "Outlet". More draw, the higher the rev's need to be, but in economy mode,it is Governed, and cannot Rev up enough to supply full power.

Toro 6.5 hp 9 year old mower. Starts Ok; surges


Sounds like your carburetor needs to be cleaned out. The surging is usually a sign of running to lean (not getting enough gas) because of possible water, rust, gum, varnish or trash in your carb. Hope that helps.....
