Assuming the cars are of equal calibre, just hold the pedal to the metal for longer, brake later & accelerate as fast as possible if not braking or cornering. That is the winning formula. Otherwise get a faster car

Look at your gas cap. There is a seal. You are looking for cracks that will allow air into the tank. This causes the vacumn that captures fuel fumes to not occur. The empty tank gives a larger volume to have to lower the pressure making the problem show up.

Could be a lot of things, sounds like a coil, when it gets hot enough it shuts down. Could be a lot of dirt in the gas tank and plugging the filter, try changing the filter again and see if it keeps running

Sounds like fuel vaporization check the heat of the fuel pump it can be warm but not hot the fuel from the tank which is cold should be cooling the pump, check for air leaks or loose connections on inlet side of the pump if there is a leak on the pressure or outlet side of the pump it will be obvious. then check fuel the pump relay by swapping it with another relay.

Same amount of turns on both sides adjust with both wheels off ground and go until right then 1/2 to 1 turn and lock it

I hope he does. I use to kinda like him but got tired of his rude obnoxious attitude.
Now he mu#der someone and got away with it. The power of the $$$ from all his sponsors and followers was the reason he walked away, funny how that works.

Sounds like an intermittent starter solenoid. Look for loose connectors or wires on the solenoid itself. Unplug them and then replug them. Check the connection of the connectors themselves to the wires. If they are loose you normally can repair them with a soldering iron. If the problem persists after you have tried these fixes than it's possibly the solenoid itself wearing out and will need to be replaced. Determining root cause on Intermittent electrical problems is often times very difficult to determine. Yours could be any number of things from a battery going bad to any device in the circuit from the ignition switch to the starter itself. Your best bet is to take it to an expert. Autozone will run the diagnostics for you for free to determine if any faults are registered in your computer. Give them a try.

Lucas , Sea foam and Royal Purple are popular brands of fuel system cleaner. You may also want to consider replaceing the fuel filter.

check the relay and fuse if they are ok check the power coming from the ignition switch make sure it is powering up that circuit if it is check the fuel pump

Smoke in the exhaust is a result of either too much gas or something other than gas being burned and there are a couple possibilities of what else could be burning. So there's a chance that either you mixed something in your gas you put in, or your engine is burning oil, you are burning antifreeze, or you're just burning too much gas but the engine wouldn't run very well. You didn't say anything about other how overall the engine is running but the engine could just need a tune up?

But antifreeze usually burns white so because you said it was black smoke (usually more blue colored when oil is the cause) I don't think it's antifreeze.

Black smoke can appear due to an engine that needs a tune up but it's usually not that noticeable.
The most common reason for heavy smoke coming out the tailpipe is because you're burning oil.

If you find you have to add a lot of oil regularly to the crank case and there are no obvious leaks (look for spills on the pavement where the bike is parked) then you're probably burning that oil and with the smoke you see...that just about nails the cause of the smoke.

How do you fix it? Usually you have to change the rings on the cylinder/s. Cold be one Cylinder or all of them. But generally if you do one cylinder you do them all since while you're doing it...why not do them all?

So based on what you've said...that's the best I can do.

probably can if they are available from the service agent parts
if not consider using stockings cut to size in their place

The 3.4L is known for blown head gaskets. I personally have repaired over 30. One of the first signs is air in the cooling system and loss of heat. The best way to tell is to chemical test the cooling system to see if there are CO2 gasses entering the cooling system. I've seen people bleed the system and it is fine for a while, but believ me this is a blown head gasket.

Depending on how hard it's driven, it should last a min. 50,000 mi. and up over 100,000. Check the rubber boot and see if it's torn, if it is then dirt is getting into it then it won't last very long..5 to maybe 10,000 mi.

Sorry, but this is an engine coolant system air temperature problem which could be a mixture of the abundance of incoming air mixed with engine coolant actual temperature and its freaking the PCM out. Which you do not want during the winter months. If you have the other air box to just reinstall it, if just for the season. You want to know your vehicle is 100% during the cold weather to prevent long cold walks. Plus yyour getting plenty of cold air during winter anyway.So just but everything back for now to just change it back over during the spring this is a simple problem glad to help.Thanks in advance please remember to rate and leave testimonial this is how we get our milestones on FixYa and please remember we are volunteers here we receive no payment and work jobs too so answers may not come as fast as you like please be patient with us.
