2001 evenrude e225 will not start normal but will with ether


Do not use Ether on that engine!!!!!!!!!!
Right now the carbs are gummed up and need cleaned. Ether can blow your motor. You can get some throttle body cleaner or take it in and have carbs cleaned.
Just don't use ether

Just R&R a motor in a 2002 pontiac grand prix GTP-Supercharged. started up after a few cranks and a shot of ether. But idles very high and when we test drove it shifted fine on the first run but wont...


To fix the high idle, replace the top oxygen sensor. I would drop the transmission pan and change the transmission filter. You can then check the old fluid for contamination and metal filings. Metal filings will clog the transmission filter and lead to low pressure that would cause delayed shifts

I dont know too much about cars but i have a 97 dodge intrepid and i have been trying to get it to start it use to run really well now i have tried to crack it and i get nothing out of it the radio turns...


If you have a spark tester, plug it into a spark plug then place the spark plug wire on the other end. Have someone to turn the engine over while you watch for spark. If you have spark, now you can make another test. Spray some ether into the air intake or throttle body, you might have to take the air intake line going to the throttle body off to gain access to the throttle body, but after spraying the ether into the intake, try to start it...if it attempts to start, your problem is fuel related, you stated that you didn't have much knowledge about cars, so at this point you will need to decide whether you want us to try to talk you through it or, get a qualified mechanic to work on it for you.

Sounds like the drainback valve inside the pump is shot...try just turning the key on and waiting a minute and see if it starts that way.

Jeep Cherokee won't start, turns off, etc.


Did you have the same cranking with no start problem with original engine or did the problem begin when you changed it? I would check codes if you have not already, and would also clean business end of idle air valve (next to tps) DO NOT turn the end plunger while cleaning or it may not seat properly. Do not loose the rubber "o" ring while working either!
