One of two things I think, if you are using low octane "Regular" gas in this can and it says it requires premium, the car could be retarding the timing which could cause a knock on idle.
you could also check the compression for a loose valve that could be causing the knock, otherwise you might have a bent rod, which it sounds like you might. The kock will get progressively worse until you fry your engine and have to buy a new one. Good Luck. Talk to a mechanic.

to change the oil you need to remove the sump plug, located on the underside of the sump. the plug is a bolt on the botom of the engine. once the bolt is removd, oil will drain out rapidly so have a container ready to catch the oil.once drained put the sump plug back in and refil with new oil.

Either the fuel filter or pump has gone bad. If the car sat for awhile, there is sediment and grime and grit in a gas tank that will settle to the bottom. My guess is when you started it you got some of that debris in the filter. Either that or someone put sugar in your gas tank. Or cut your gas line. That stuff happens sometimes unfortunately. Hope it helps and good luck.

Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

I have a ktm 250 sx 2-stroke. It has a new piston and new cylinder. bike ran great before it needed the repairs. Cranks on first kick. Run good but it leaks the pre-mix everytime i ride it and it won'


Where is it leaking from? If its leaking, that's more than likely why it doesn't run right, the fuel/air mixture is off. Also, I wouldn't continue to run it until the leak is fixed as it may damage the motor from not lubricating properly.

My 1996 BMW R1100R won't start and backfires when you try starting it. A few months ago they replaced a temperature sensor and it ran well for about 4 months. It seems to run well when it is warmed...


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

no. I'd suggest to disconnect a battery for 15 mins, reconnect, wait for 5 mins and try to restart. If it doesn't help (sometimes there's a program block to prevent stealing equipment) call a dealer

Have you checked to see if it's getting fuel? try shooting some starting fluid into the intake if it tries starting then you have a plugged fuel filter or fuel pump.
