I have a 1998 Baja 90cc atv when I try to start it the motor cranks but won't turn over I tryed spraying engine start into the air intake but all it does it back fire threw the exhast and carb

Backfire indicates a timing issue. The timing chain keeps the valves closed when ignition fires. When the chain gets loose, it can jump one or more teeth on the sprocket and cause this problem.

Why is gas pouring out of top of my Holley carburetor on a 305 8 Cylinder? While turning the key over to crank it, it steadily pours gas out of a port hole on the (front top) of carb and starts to smell...

The float may be stuck, or the needle valve that lets gas into the carb may be stuck open. Is there a sight glass to see the fuel level? If not you may have to take the top of carburetor off.

Have1989 nissan hardbody and carbarator runs a steady stream of fuil when trying to crank doesnt stop. Whats wrong

This will probably be caused by either the needle valve and seat being worn or damaged,or the float in the carb fuel bowl stuck or damaged so as to prevent it from rising and shutting off the fuel.Some of the nissan carbs have a small glass window where the fuel level can be checked.It should be about 1/2 way up the glass if ok.Yours will probably be looking full.Hope this helps.Get back with your findings and I may be able to post precise instructions to remove carb and repair fault.

My 1984 camaro z28 keeps flooding. when i turn off the ignition key, the fuel keeps pouring fuel into the carb.

possibly a malfunction in the computer that controls the 1984 camaros carb would close the carburetor completely, cutting off the fuel supply or leaving the carburetor completely open, flooding the engine and causing it to stall or flodding the engine at shut off

Engine stalled out,would not start, pour gas in carb,cranks,keeps running,until idle falls below 12to1500rpm,than stalls out again and will not crank,repeat gas or starting fluid in carb,cranks runs and...

This truck is fuel injected, the problem sounds like a weak fuelpump, it runs when you pour gas into it until that gas runs out, the first thing is to test the fuel preasure, if the pump is weak it may run with gas poured into it but wont idle, also a common problem is the coolant temp sensor and the ground wires to thermostat housing bolt but i wont bet its the pump inside the fuel tank, if you put a fuel gauge on it there should be at least 55-61 psi if its a few pounds lower it can cause problems, you have everything else and it runs with gas poured so its a fuel problem check the preasure, theres a valve up top on the fuel line to connect a fuel gauge to it, start there hope this is helpful.

87 Lebaron Keeps flooding out and won't start What is the problem?

hello, sounds like you need a new carb, or replace the float in the one you have, float goes bad, sometimes they get a little hole in the float, and it will fill with gas, and the float will not rise to turn gas off, you might peck on carb a little to see if float is stuck, also check make sure choke flap is not staying shut, you can get somebody to hold it open while crankig engine to see if it starts, you may have to hold gas pedal to floor untill it cranks up, be carefull not to get anybody hurt while holding choke flap on top of carb,

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.
