Empty the tank and place upside down on a towel, unscrew the fuel tap and remove and clean the filter. Also disassemble the fuel tap and check for blockages. Check here for schematics and manuals..

I cannot get my primer to pump fuel from tank although I took compressor and blowed back thru fuel line to tank and I heard bubbles in tank.


If you are saying from the primer bulb..Regardless if you hear bubbles or not..you most likely have a cracked in the small line from the push bulb..that line calls for vacuum to pull gas from the tank into the carb..sometimes they get griddle and will develop cracks and lose the ability to pull vacuum...have them changed.should fix the problem not a hard or expensive job good luck..

Kinroad cyclone 800? I think


I would follow lines coming out from the gas tank to see one that goes to carburetor . I would try to blow mild force air into that line and see,with tank cap off, bubbles come out from tank;then try starting it and if it runs a little longer then I imagine something is clogging the flow. Hope suggestion helps.

check primary fuel filter for diesel.If none take hose and blow back to tank.You should hear air bubbling. then try letting pump pick up fuel.You could have a clogged screen in the tank.

Can't put gas into my 2010 subaru forester


if the gas gauge reads empty it might be not working properly, and the tank could actually be full. I've seen this time and time again at my station over the past twenty some years. The other posibility could be an obstruction in the filler neck it self. Kids do the darndest things to cars ? LOL. If thats the case then there is Two hose clamps that hold it in place, usually a screw driver or a small socket will work. But first stick a peice of hose in there and try blowing through the hose and listen if you hear bubbles then its full if you hear just air then its empty and blocked. Good luck :- )

Can't start and gas is not being pulled thru the filter. How do I test to make sure my fuel pump is working?


Pull the spark plug wire to make sure the engine doesn't start. First check the line from the gas tank to the pump. Disconnect the fuel line from the gas tank at the fuel pump. Take off your gas tank fill cap and using light air pressure, blow into the line to see if you get bubbles in the gas tank. Canned air for cleaning computers or compressed air at a very low setting work well for this. Do not use high pressure so you don't burst the line or blow it off a connection that's not easy to get at. If no bubbles come up in the tank, check the line and pickup area of the tank. If the line is clear, reconnect everything. Disconnect the fuel line at the carburator. Holding the end of the fuel line in a small jar, turn the motor over. If the pump is OK it should shoot gas into the jar. If not the pump should be replaced. If it does check your float and needle valve in the carburator bowl.

The mower started. then just quit like ran out of gas. we blew thru the gas line going into the tank. then cleaned out filter. it won't start. at first it wouldn't even drain any gas out but we...


If the gas won't even drain from the tank, try removing the gas cap. It has vent holes and if this is plugged, the vacuum won't let the gas drain. If that is the case, clear the holes.

My 2005 yamaha TTR 125 will not let gas flow into the carb bowl, you can pour gas into it and it starts right up, thanks!


Your float in the bottom of the carb is likely stuck in the up position. The float attaches to a valve that shuts off fuel flow when level is just right. Can you see the little screw at the bottom of the bowl? Do you see the little overflow hose below that? Get a plastic soda bottle, put the outlet of the tiny hose into it. unscrew that little screw a few turns. Do you see fuel coming out? No? then take the back end of a screw driver and tap the bowl of your carb sharply 5 or 6 times. (Make sure the fuel pet **** under the tank is turned on. If you do not see fuel going into your bottle in a minute, shut off fuel at the tank. Screw the bowl drain back in. Remove the larger incoming fuel line that goes from tank to carb and put it into the bottle. Now you will open the petcock a little bit slowly. If you never see fuel come out of the tank, thru that hose, then your screens on the petcock may be clogged. Shut off fuel , Remove the cap on your fuel tank. blow into the line while slowly opening the petcock valve. Hear air bubbling in the tank yet? If you do, shut off valve, remove air pressure from line, point it back into the bottle and reopen the valve. If none of this works, then you need a new petcock valve.

My carburetor isn't getting any gas to it and i just replaced the mechanical fuel pump what other problems could there be and how do solve them


Fuel line between tank and pump could be blocked. Remove fuel cap and Disconnect fuel line from inlet side of pump and blow back. If line is clear you should hear bubbling from tank filler. It could be that you have picked up a batch of dirty fuel that has clogged the gauze input filter that is inside the fuel tank.

2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank


I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.
