Toro Power Clear 418 snowblower wont start after sitting through summer


Check the fuel line to the tank, and see if another one is inside, maybe it fell off, or it's filter is clogged.

Last Saturday i open and clean the carb, change the spark plug of my italjet millennium 150 because it wont start after doing it yehey engine was running and made a few adjusment and rode the bike for 3...


most likely the float has become stuck in the closed position.
Check to make sure fuel is still running out of the petcock
Open the drain on the Carb (should be located near the bottom) turn on the petcock. Fuel should flow from the drain freely. If not then the float needle is either jammed or some thing else is inside the carb stopping fuel from flowing into the bowl.

My 1974 Yamaha 250 Enduro wont start I have cleaned and redone the carb. I have changed the coil pack and spark plug. Any suggestions will help Im not a mechanic by any means so not sure where to start...


you need good compression ( at least 90 psi , kicking it with the throttle open) , good crankshaft seals for sucking the fuel/air into the botton end, proper point gap and timing set for spark ( spark should be big and fat,if not the source coil is weak,, this is a flywheel magnito ignition and it needs no battery to fire the plug) if you clean the carb, make sure you also clean the choke pickup tube or it wont choke. also make sure you have the slide installed in the right direction ( not backwards and the idle is not set too high at first...compression/****-good spark at the right time-proper fuel/air ratio and it will run

I have a 1986 yamaha virago 700 that wont run properly


2 things need to be done first start your bike get a can of wd40 after your bike is warm and running spray around the carb jointsall 4 of them if your engine changes rpms up or down you have a intake leak ether your carb joint gaskets or o-rings need replacing or your carb joints are old and need replacing. at this point wont hurt to have you carbs cleaned also

Bike has been standing for 18 months without the engine being spun. Bike will not start without choke. when choke is off engine stalls


You need to completely drain and refill the gas - the gas you have is stale and doesn't have enough power to run the bike.
The battery needs to be fully charged - not just jump started. It wouldn't hurt to do an oil and filter change as well as a air filter and plug change.

79 gs550 - uh ohs in wiring...


When you reassembled the bike did you pinch any of the wiring harnesses? Trace the wiring through the bike and make sure everything has a solid connection between their respective power sources and activation switches. Alot of time bikes run wiring under the gas tanks so you need to make sure that you didnt cut anything when pputting it back on (if you removed the tank)

Start and die


Fill up the gas tank, clean the fuel filter, and then check to see if your carb jets are clean. Remove the jets from the carb and attempt to look through them in the light. If you cannot see light through them they need another cleaning.
