Question about 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid
My bike wont start. Replaced the spark plug, drained & added fresh gas, checked the fuel filter... Kicks over just fine... Got it running for about 4 seconds, then it died. Always started up great before, not sure what happened. Haven't rode it in over 6 mos. It is a 4 stroke.
With a new plug and fresh gas it should start. Check to make sure there isn't a kill switch turned off or that the gas petcock from the tank to the carb is on.
How did you check the fuel filter? Disconnecting it from the fuel line that goes to the carb is the best way, making sure the gas is turned on under the tank. Bleed off a little gas into a can or something just to make sure the filter isn't plugged.
The last thing I'd do is take off the air filter and spray a little starting fluid in the carb. It may start and run several times if there is old gas in there somewhere. Remember the bowl on the carb is probably still full of old gas. After some fresh fuel reaches the plug it should start and continue to run.
(You might drain the bowl on the carb of ols gas before you go any further)
