Question to put out here. I have a 99 RS, and it is running rich again. Previously had a time where it flooded the cylinders with gas and hydrolocked. Starting to look things over today and I find that the wires to the sensor and heater?? on the carb are disconnected. Anyone know if this was something commonly done on purpose or should they be attached to keep things running right?
Thanks in advance.
Are you referring to the TPS(throttle positioning sensor) it's the plug being pointed at about 1:15 of the below video. It should be connected. I've hear of some not using it, but I can't remember the rational.
My first impression is that your float valves are failing and don't shut off fuel flow allowing the float bowls to flood. Could very well be dirt particles keeping the float valves from closing completely.
Nope. Not the TPS. Looking at a service manual online, I believe it's for the carburetor heater. Two wire connectors, one a female spade and the other a female bullet type, were unplugged on the bottom side of the carb.
