You do not need to tear into the engine. Just remove the drain screw (or drain plug) from the carb float bowl and drain the carb. Remove the tank and dump it out. flush it with a bit more gas. Remount the tank then fill with gas. Drain a cup of gas and check for water in the bottom of the cup. Keep draining until no water is in the cup.

You may need to remove and clean the carb. Sitting for a year can allow gas to dry and form varnish that can plug up the jets. ESPECIALLY if the gas valve was left on.

A “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

I want to get a Jonway 150 quad going after sitting for a while. What do I do first?


Hi, Wernich if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
8. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.
Good luck and have a nice day.

Your engine is staved by fuel check your pilot jet its clogged up this means a tiny percentage of fuel is getting into the bowl when the bowl is dry because your jets blocked it takes 45mins to fill back up because the blockage in jets,this should take seconds ti fill

How do you change the water pump on a 1998 buick skylark?


Hi This is d_hubbs: Removal and replacement of your water pump.I'm assuming you have a 2.5 Engine.You did'nt give your engine Information but about 75% of your Year and Model had the 2.5 in them.
1st start by disconnecting your negative cable on your Battery. Then Drain your Coolant into a Container: then remove your drive belts remove your fan from the water pump: You probally should also remove your alternator and A/C Compressor to make it easier to get to your water pump, now remove your lower Radiator Hose, then remove your water pump mounting bolts, now remove the water pump: Now Clean the water pump surface on your engine where your gasket will be. Besure its Clean Good : NOTE: Sometimes if you purchase a New water pump it will not have the drive belt pulley on it. if this is the case Remove your Pulley from your old Pump and install it on your New pump : now Run some gasket sealer on your new water pump where the gasket will go.put gasket on the new pump lining up your mounting bolt holes.also put a small bead of sealer on the engine where your water pump will mount: now Mount your New water pump to the engine with the Mounting Bolts.Torque the Mounting bolts at 25-30 Foot Lbs.
Inspect your Drive belts and Hoses its a good time to put new ones on if needed.Now put your lower Hose back on-re-install your A/C compressor and Alternator-Put your fan back on-now put All your Drive belts back on be sure to Adjust the Belt Tension and Lock down the Bolts.-Fill your Radiator back up with coolant,If the Fluid you took out is still fairly new ,you can use it. If its Aged best off putting new Coolant. Replace the Battey Cable Start your Car and Check for any Leaks , After your Thermastat opens you'll need to recheck your Coolant Level. if no Leaks and Cooling System is Full you Are Done. Please let me know how my advice and Solutions have Helped you. Thanks for Using FIXYA From d_hubbs

Bad smelling water


The water lines are contaminated with bacteria and/or mold. This is a problem with many refrigerators. You need to turn off water and disconnect the feed line and filter. Mix 4 ounces of Clorox(R) in 1 gallon of water and pump it through with a NEW garden sprayer. You can remove the wand and clamp it onto the water inlet. Activate the dispenser while you pump the bleach through the system. Once bleach starts coming out the dispenser, vent the garden sprayer (de-pressurize), Let the bleach sit for 15-20 minutes. Re-attached water using a brand new filter (do not use the old filter and do not put bleach through filter). Run water until no chlorine odor (it can be a while). This process needs to be done at least once a year.

Bike starting problem


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 carburetor. 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. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. 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. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.
