Question about 1984 Mazda B-Series

1 Answer

If i let it set for more than two days without starting it it is very hard to start. Tried pouring a little gas in the carb to see if it might be a fuel problem but it has no effect. Checked for fire at the plug and seems to be ok . When it does start runs very rouhg for about 15-20 sec. If I start it every day there is no problem.

Truck will not start without pouring gas into carb after setting overnight

Try choking it or pumping the gas, possible vacuum leak, or choke not set correctly, carb may need to be adjusted, give more detailed question for more detailed answer. Good luck

Car looses fuel prime or will not start after setting over night without priming the fuel pump 8 or so times but after first start of day no further starting issue

i had the same problem the fuel pump is going out. It will need to be replaced, but a temporary solution, keep a coke bottle of gass in the truck and pour just a little in the carb. that will allow it to start and with the engine running it helps the fuel pump to get fuel to the engin

My 1970 Dodge Dart 225 Slant Six died while making a left turn and will not restart. Since then, I have replaced points and condenser, cap and rotor and spark plugs. The engine cranks but doesn't kick....

seems like you are not getting fuel up to the carburetor, try pouring a tiny bit of gas into the carb, then crank it and see if it will attempt to start...have you checked your spark?, even though coil and all is new, make sure you are getting blue spark, (from your explanation I assume you know how to do this)
If it attempts to start after the mickey mouse trick of pouring the gas in the carb, then more than likely its your pump, thats a mechanical pump, not expensive, probably not hard to come by, also replace the fuel filter and any damaged lines you may see. a kink will also cause lack of fuel flow eventually causing a vacuum.
I hope this helps a bit.

Will not start but if i poor gas in the carburator it will then when i shut it off and then try to start it it will not start back up unless i poor gas in the carb what could it possibly be thank you....

Its faulty fuel pump.When you pour gas in carb, it gets fuel directly, but when you start without pouring gas, then fuel is not reaching there.Low fuel pressure.Replace fuel pump and fuel filter.----- Thank you.

hello, usually when gas sets in carb for a long time it turns into a varnish, you will have to take carb apart and clean all jets out, even the fuel pump may be clogged up, you will probably have to rebuild carb, unless you have access to air line to blow any and all jets, pretty much all passage ways, power jets, in other words you have a carb problem, you may need a new one, unless you have a strong solvent, that will break away any varnish or gum up.

Carb gas pouring out of hole on top front of carb

Sounds like the float has absorbed gasoline and can't ftoat anymore. This causes the fuel to not be shut off when float bowl is full causing the carb to flood. You will have to buy a carb kit and a float and rebuild the carb. Hope this helps.

check the fuel pump, maybe it is not working. if you put a new accelerator pump, I wonder if it's same as the fuel pump. if so, maybe you need to rebuild your carb, clean the small fuel line in the carb, something block there.
