Gas runs out of carb drain on miller welder generator 301g trailblazer


if it is the float bowl drain leaking, close the drain. If it is the vent, clean float bowl and needle and check level. Next time, drain the fuel out of float bowl after you run it if not planning to run it for 30+ days. That is why they put drains on generator carbs. Modern ethanol turns to gum real quick. Tell you congressman you think ethanol sucks and the new 15% ethanol the farm lobby is trying foist off on us is going to be a disaster for small engine owners.

This question is for my 2005 Honda CRF150F.My bike when rididng in the mountians and down here in town seems to have a problem. When I throttle up to go faster the bike sputters and sounds like it is...


Chances are that water condensation in the gas tank has collected in the carb float bowl. There should be a drain plug on the float bowl. Go ahead and drain the bowl with the gas valve turned off. After the bowl has drained, turn the gas back on and let the gas tank drain a half cup or so. This should rid the tank of water. No adjustments are needed. Your carb has a plug on the bottom of the bowl. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_180.gif

My 2006 klx 250 won't fire, no fuel in float bowl, Tank is full, I drained the float bowl to try to get it to start and now no fuel is getting to the bowl


Check the filter screen on the fuel tap for blockage etc. Also check the tap for anything that may have lodged in it and blocking it. Check the fuel pipe too.

My dirt bike did work but has not been used for 1yr.. tried to start it today and it sounds like it wants to but doesne, what can i do


I would check to see if moisture has built up in the gas tank --- over time condensation forms in a ( not full ) fuel tank, especially in colder enviroments. one thing that you can try is drain the carburetor bowl and add some gas additives to the tank ( or drain the tank and start out with some new gas ) --- but drain the carb bowls and try to start and run again.. there also might be some debris in the carb bowl that is blocking the jet,, ( remove the bowl and spray with carb cleaner ).

Dropped power washer into pool. Is washer fixable and how much. Is it worth getting fixed or buy new one?


This is a relatively easy SELF correction process. Mind you a pool is FRESH water.

1. Drain all gas by remove the hose that connects to carb and completly drain the gas tank. (If there is an in line fuel filter or glass debris bowl, change filter / empty bowl.
2. Remove float bowl nut and bowl and purge water. Spray carb with carb cleaner while float bowl is removed. Paying particular attention to the float bowl nut thread area (throat)
3. Drain Oil. AFTER step 5.
4. Pressure Pump oil should be fine as it is not vented. (depending on pump installed but none of them are vented.
5. Remove spark plug and put about 1 ounce gas directly into the cylinder IGN OFF! Pull recoil and let gas exit spark plug hole. Reinstall a NEW spark plug BPR5ES or similar
6. Service engine oil
7. Fan dry the unit over night. Simple floor fan will do. Leave the gas cap OFF / float bowl open overnight during Fan Air dry.
8. Next morning service gas tank
9. Select fuel on and let a small amout of gas leak before installing the float bowl and nut making sure the float bowl gsket is installed against the top of the float bowl.

Final testing time... Ign. on.. Test spark first. Spark check good. FUEL ON. Start.

Just make sure to change oil again in 10 hours. Water in oil will cause the oil to appear milky.

You can do this. Worst case the electronic ignition module fails. (They are cheap... !) Most of the time the coil will not need to be changed.

That is water de-contamination 101 and you just completed the course. Give it your best shot. It beats buying a new one and yes it is worth repairing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

P.S. Oil the TIRE / WHEEL bearings.

Gas flows out of the carburater drain hose


Sounds like your carburetor floats are stuck to the bottom of the bowls. You can try to tap the carb bowl with a screwdriver and try to get them to pop loose, otherwise you will have to remove the float bowl (usually about 4 screws on the bottom of the carb). All you should have to do is pull it down about 1/4" or so until the floats pop loose and then put the bowl back on. This is pretty common on bikes that have sat for a few months, especially if you are good about draining the gas from the carbs when you're storring it.

Missing goughing and spluttering


THis sounds like water in the gas. Condensation inside the gas tank is where the water comes from. Remove the drain plug at the bottom of the float bowl to drain the bowl. Some bikes have a small bowl as part of the gas valve assembly. Remove that bowl and dump it out also.

Went to reserve fuel - then motor backfiring and loss of power -


Condensation in the gas tank collects at the fuel petcock. Get enough water in there and it gets into the carbs. ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb.
Put the carb back together and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.
