Fuel and spark ok then the only other thing you need is compression. check compressions. Around 130-160 psi and about the same give or take 10%. If this is Ok check timing, dissy cap and rotor if it has these,

Spark may not b strong enough or float level/fuel pressure wrong. Air cleaner or leak in a gasket. Test batt n starter for strength. Compression cud b bad

B&s 22hp engine won't start


Hi Charles:
I'd start by checking the spark plug condition and function.
Wet........... no spark
Dry............ no fuel
Check for spark anyway. Hot and blue.
Try priming carb with a squirt of gas.
Drain and flush carb. You may need to remove and thoroughly clean if gummed up.

I have a 95 Chevy 1500 truck 4by 4 and I can't get it to start I tried everything it seems like it wants to start but nothing what could it be


well if it won't start it won't start...because your engine has lost 1 of 3 things that make it run: gas, spark, and compression. Don't tie yourself into knots over what it could be. Do the basics first. 1.Check that the engine is getting gas into the cylinders.
2.Check that the spark plugs in the cylinders are getting ignition current to make blue snapping sparks when tested.
3.If you have both spark and gas to all cylinders, you should do a compression test of the cylinders to know there is enough compression in the cylinders to make it run. Without good compression readings from all cylinders, no amount of money thrown at it will make the engine run better, you have to do mechanical repairs to the engine that restores compression first.

Most times, sudden no starts are gas or spark related. Check those first. Happy Holidays.

2002 kia sedona will not start, new starter , sounds like not getting gas or maybe flooding any ideas


If you smell gas it is getting gas, if not check the fuel filter. Next thing to check is to see if there is a spark. Remove the spark plug from the engine. Have someone crank the engine with the spark plug grounded, see if there is a spark. Also check for the smell of gas in the spark plug hole.

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

I have a 2000 grand voyager and the motor turns over but will not start. What could be wrong with it?


its either not getting gas or its not getting spark to the spark plugs.. check to see if its a gas problem by spraying wd40 directly into the air intake as you try to start it up...if the motor tries to start up then youre having a problem getting gas. This could be a fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, injection pump, or even a computer problem. To check if it is getting spark, pull out one spark plug, leave the wire on and touch a screwdriver to the side of the spark plug and the same time to the engine to ground it.. while grounding it on the engine, have someone bump the key to start it...if you see spark in the gap of the plug then you are getting spark and there is no problem there... if not, it could be possibly be a distributer or electronic ignition problem

Hello you will need to replace the spark plugs you quoted it is getting lots of gas so your spark plugs are wet.disconnect your battery while your replacing your spark plugs once finished replacing the spark plugs reconnect the battery now try to start it should start up.

Car wont start, sounds like out of gas but tank is full


A car not starting can be caused by many, many things.........but...................a bad thermostat or a good thermostat will not cause or keep a car from starting in any way. you need to know if it is getting gas to the cylinders........and to check for spark at the cylinders.......pull a spark plug wire at the spark plug, pull the spark plug and see if it looks wet or smells like strong gas odor....then plug wire onto spark plug, (without re-installing spark plug), and hold spark plug onto a grounded metal object on engine (using a rubber insulated object, so you don't get shocked), then have someone turn engine over and look to see if spark plug sparks........if yes, re-install spark plug, etc.......your ignintion is sparking, but if you are getting fuel, it may be a jumped timing chain? You may need mechanical help........don't trust the person that told you about a thermostat........
