Have project motorcycle, 1994 Yamaha Virago xv750, that can't get started now?

Working on project yamaha. changed battery, oil/filter change, all fluids, gear box oil, caliphers, total cleanup. had running well about 2 1/2 months ago. then had to go to Houston to be with Mom. Now, just tried to start it, sputters but won't start. charged battery overnight, changed spark plug, made sure had full gas tank, turned petcock to reserve to start, then back to ON but still won't start? Will fire for about 2 seconds then off?

SOURCE: 2007 yamaha virago won't start - replaced spark

it's not that your not gettin gas it's that the gas is not getting thru the carbs to the engine. your bike will probably start w/choke on and then die, your jets are clogged and happens to most bikes that are stored w/gas in the carbs.,,,clean them if you know how or take it to a trusted mech...good luck to you...Tim

SOURCE: The motorcycle will run in the on position of the

problem is probably the fuel petcock try this test disconnect the fuel line and get a good length of clear line enough to reach a container hook it up to the petcock and turn the petcock in the on position and observe the flow of fuel to see if it is flowing freely try this in the on and the reserve position.
if it id restricted remove the petcock and clean the obstruction of rebuild or replace it.

I WANT TO CHANGE MY TRANSMISSION FILTER ON MY 2003 CHEVY MALIBU. hOW MUCH FLUID WILL i NEED ?


  • When you change a transmission filter the general rule is you loos roughly 1/4 - 1/3 of your total transmission fluid capacity.
  • I would buy 3 quarts and dump two in the transmission after the filter/gasket change. Put your foot on the brake and go through the gears to fill the pockets in the transmission up. Then put then check the fluid and add some more as necessary. Should be around 2 1/2 quarts total you will loose in the filter change.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Do I need to change brake fluid, clutch fluid and power steering fluid in my 2000 Honda ex 2Dr. coupe? It has 97,000 miles on it.


Unless you have a record of these fluids being changed in the past 18 months you should definitely change them. These fluids will degrade over time and need to be changed at appropriate intervals.
You should also flush the engine radiator and cooling system and replace with new coolant to the manufacturer's specs unless this has been done in the past 18 months.
Also ensure you change the engine oil and filter frequently (certainly more frequently than the manufacturer maximum interval specs which is based on optimum driving conditions which does not reflect reality.)

Frequent fluid changes = cheap preventative maintenance.

Brake fluid - every 2 years minimum
Clutch fluid - every 2 1/2 years minimum
PS fluid - every 3 years
Coolant flush and change - every 2 years
Engine oil - every 3500-4000 miles or 5 months minimum whichever is sooner
Oil filter - every second oil change.

My car has NO transmission fluid.


if it's still moving it should be O K, as long as you top off fluid ASAP.cause of low level should be investigated & remedied.fill transmission through dipstick tube to 'add' mark,run it a bit & add fluid to full mark when hot. do not overfill.trans. fluid & filter should be changed at 100K miles or less.

Changing gears very stiff


try 1 0f these solutions giving the cars age and not much discription.
1 check the level of your gear box oil

2 change the gear box oil or if automatic change the fluid for the transmision.( since you say changeing gears i take it that it's manual gear box.

3 if manual the gears need over hauled giving the age of your car.

4 your clutch cable needs adjusted due ware on the clutch or if hydraulic the clutch system needs bleed with new fluid.
