Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, O2, and/or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.
16. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.

Cranks and fires but wont strats


Hi Anonymous, sounds like you have a fuel pronlem. Check fuel flow to carb, check fuel filter remove air cleaner and squirt starter fluid or Brake Kleen into carb throat, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you have a carb problem. Remove carb and bowl clean clogged jets and air passages, and clean bowl. Visit website below to download cheap ( $5.50 ) service manual that will walk you through it and also trouble shoot:

Lost power and when we started it it wouldnt get of idle now it wont start it sound like it wants to start


You would need a fuel pressure gauge and the attachments to hook it into the fuel line before the injectors.
You can spray carb cleaner into the throttle body to imitate the injectors, just don't spray it thru the mass air flow meter.
Its possible the mass air flow meter was failing and your cleaning it finished the job. They are very precise components. There could be an air leak between the throttle body and the MAF meter.
You could need a simple fuel filter too.
If it will start on carb cleaner and the filter is good, you may have to get a book to troubleshoot the mass air flow meter.

Yamaha 82 model XJ650: Throttle cable will not move. Disconnect cable from carb linkage and cable works freely, no resistance. However, if reconnect to linkage, throttle will not move. Bike has been...


hi sounds like the main spindle shaft that operates the carbs has seized spray penetrating oil wd40 or similar all over the outside of the carbs giving them a good soaking leave for a good few hours
and gently try and wriggle the throttle cable till it starts to move then spray it some more if this doesnt work remove the carbs and clean them out putting penetrating oil inside the throttle bores
you will probably need to take off the lower fuel bowls and clean them out too if its been standing a long time the fuel avaporates away and your left with a lot of corrosion inside that must be cleaned
out as it will block fuel flow through the carbs

Starts and idles and runs half speed ok -- dies off on full throttle fuel lines & filter ok has ffuel in tank good spark & new plug muffler & screen & ports open clean good compression


Since you don't indicate the make and model, I can't give you specifics, but when I had this problem it turned out to be a dirty carb. This can cause uneven fuel flow and loss of power. At full throttle, you may not be getting sufficient fuel to work properly. Try cleaning the carb a nd update this with the results.

I am having running problems with my 2004 Yamaha Roadstar. I drove the bike at spring break 2009. Bike sat until yesterday. I tried to start it but the battery was dead and the gas was bad. Recharged the...


You have done a good job ... pat yourself on the back ... following that, go get some injector cleaner and add an appropriate amount to your tank and go for a ride. Do what ever you need to do to keep from pushing it home. I think this will solve your trouble.

May I recommend a fuel stabilizer for your fuel for future periods of time when you will not be riding? StaBil is a good brand but there are others as well.

My yamaha ttr 125l wont start it keeps turning over and then dying like it has no gas but it has lots any ideas?


too much fuel will cause same symptoms, grab a can of car throttlebody cleaner from the parts store, and pinch the fuel line off, and attempt to start till fuel is empty in the bowl of the carb, then spray cleaner in carb with the throttle full open 2 to 3 times close throttle, start, as it attempts to run spray slowley while engine runs, adjusting the flow as you rev engine.this eleminates poss bad gas or carb problems. if it runs fine this way then check gas, and check the carb. (while cleaning use a small wire to clean the tubes inside the carb as well, good luck!

Need to know the lo and hi speed carburetor adjustments on a shindaiw 577 chain saw and which is the hi and the lo speed screws.


The low speed screw (air flow) will be the one the throttle plate arm rests against. The high-speed screw (fuel flow) will be closer to the cylinder, downstream from the throttle plate, nearer to the fuel supply line. Start with 1/2 to one turn out from lightly seated and go 1/8th to 1/4 increments, opening until the saw starts, idles evenly and runs well under a solid cutting load. Make sure the carb air filter, spark plug, fuel and carb are all clean! The carb jet tips should be sharp, even and smooth...no worn grooves or bent/broken tips. Two-cycle saw and garden tool engines should start quite easily (three to four pulls or even less) if the cyl. compression is good and they are adjusted properly.

Mariner 25 hp 2 stroke hard to start then quits and won't restart


It sounds like the float is sticking in the carb. Since the carb is higher than the fuel tank it pulls the fuel in by vaccum of the engine. when running at high rpms, it can burn the fuel thats flowing into the carb, when you idle down, the bowl of the carb is filling up with fuel faster than the engine can burn it and causing it to flood. Then when it shuts off at idle it does not want to start back up because it is flooded. To make a long stary short, pull the carb and give it a good cleaning and your problems should be solved.

Tune up and clean the throttle plate


Ford is notorius for bad breathing.There EGR system is terrible, it always causes a lot of carbon build up in the throttle plates. The best thing to do, is to take of the throttle body assembly and digg out the carbon thats restricting the air flow. Also, it is a good rule or thumb to clean the throttle plate with carb & throttle cleaner with a tooth brush. Add a bottle of fuel injector cleaner to a full tank of gas. While your doing all this you might as well change the EGR valve. If you follow the air intake pipe from the air filter box, it should lead you to the throttle body assembly. The EGR valve is located on the passenger side by the fire wall underneath the heater hoses and AC lines. Good luck, Ford engineers must have been drinking when they designed their vehicles, they don't make anything easy.

Cranks fast but wont start


Hi, You did a good job of diagnosing your problem. Gas in bowl and dry plugs, starts with fluid, But, to quote you, "won't go through carb" . If you feel confident, you should disassemble and clean the carb, as that is going to be the problem. As a tip, if the genset is going to sit make sure to turn off the fuel flow to the engine and run till the engine dies. They do not like to sit any length of time with fuel in the carb. Good Luck, this should Fixya!
