Running But Not Well

Recommended Posts

Guest Dannyg

Hello all,

 

Recently bought a Mi16 1.9, It has been stood for months and when i went to pick it up it runs but sounds lumpy and needs constant foot on accelerater to keep it running.

 

The things i will try is clearing the fuel out of it and running clean fuel.

 

All plugs have a spark new leads was fitted.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Danny

Hey Danny

 

How does it perform under load?

 

I would check the idle control valve and also the hoses for leaks.

 

Sray ether (or carb cleaner) around the base of all the hoses that attach after the AFM. If the revs go up when you spray a particular hose, you have an airleak

Hey

 

Under load it runs fine its once the revs drop, But the fuel could be crap so im clearing it out and putting new in.

 

Thanks for the advice.

That's a good idea

 

Take the ICV off and clean it out. Also, do check the hoses as if any of them there are leaking, you will get power back by putting a stop to that.

Back before I did my own work, my mechanic found a bunch of air leaks on my motor.

 

What a difference when I got it back!
