Hi, Anonymous you may have a dirty/gumed up throttle cable that needs lubricating or it may be smashed or pinched slightly just enough to cause binding. Your carbuerator slide could be binding especially if it's sloppy in the bore, if it's a cv carb you may have diaphram issues, your choke/enrichner may not be seating properly. The whistling noise could be an intake leak or leaky head gasket and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Aprilia but despair not for a mere $10 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Have a 2003 yamaha v star classic 1100. After about 10 miles when stopping at a light the revs go high until the bike comes to a complete stop.After stopping the revs drop to normal.Another thing I noticed...


Hi, Eugene_imric and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted or pinched.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
5. Broken throttle return spring.
6. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
7. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, VSS sensors or wiring/connector

Are the days longer or shorter in summer? answer: longer


Glad to help YOU!

That's true: in SUMMER the days are longer; but actually the days start to increase in length since December 21st until June 21st; after that they start to decrease again.

My best wishes!

Choke coming on even in summer, is this right


it seems that your coolant temp senor is what causing this to happen it's natural inless it revs really high and stays above 1100 rpm's after the engine heats up.

I recently bought a second hand grand voyager and occaisionally when the car is started a little symbol on the dash comes on and stays on. when it stays on and i come to the end of my journey, the car...


It means that the pre heat is in operation.It is a system that burns diesel to create heat to warm up engine quicker so that warm air comes into car sooner.The smoke is the exhaust gasses from the system and normally the whistleing and smoke stops when engine reaches running temperature or on short journeys approx 1 minute after engine is turned off
During summer when no heat is required and air con is on cooling it should not light even when starting from cold

hope this helps

Reving High and Won't Start


I have an idea... why don't you have a 'qualified Hyundai Technician' diagnose the problem?.. First of all, you describe an Engine Management System problem. I assume it a 1.6 DOHC engine. There are numerous suspect causes for your problem. Example, Idle speed actuator, Cam Position Sensor, Throttle Position Sensor, Injectors, Crank Position Sensor, Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor, Engine Coolant Temp Sensor, Heated Oxygen Sensors, Mass Airflow Sensor (this one's my favorite.. along with Throttle position sensor), Intake Air Temperature Sensor, and the list goes ON... vacuum leaks, throttle body problems, PCV problems, Oh!.. and let's not forget plugs, wires, coils, fuel pump problems, etc. The one most often found as cause for excessive rev is the ECU (Engine Control Unit). Try this out... disconnect the battery. Take the the pos (+) cable and connect/touch it to the neg (-) cable for 60 seconds.. then reconnect the cables to the battery. Tell me what happens after you drive it for awhile. If it's still acting up... take it in for diagnosis.

Broken flash


In short you cant fix it.
Switch camera on and activate the flask and put to your ear
If you hear a high pitched whistle the capacitor is charginf - so this would indicate the tube has blown
No whistle then the capacitor has blown.
Either way - New Camera - A repairs is not likely
