Hi,if I was you I would buy some easy start,
hold throttle wide open, spray easy start into the air box,(remove air filter)if you have a spark then by spraying the easy start through the air box will help it to fire up and hopefuly draw the new fuel through and hopfuly it will keep running after a fue squirts of the easy start,all the best.

Hi you need to drai. Thd old fuel out of thd carberator's look for a small screw at the very bottom of each carb. If this doesn't help the carbs need to come off and be cleaned. Also the plugs could be wet with the old fuel. Good luck.

Engine will crank but want rev up charging system metered at 13.7 volts


Hi, Martie if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.
Good luck and have a nice day.

Car won't start. getting spark, fuel. car sat for three years. cranks and will only start if gas in air filter but soon runs out of fumes and stops


Put some fresh gas in tank. Use starting fluid to aid starting.

Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas to remove any moisture problem in the fuel.

Clean / replace air filter.

Top off ATF to MAX level.

There is a 1996 GMC Safary sitting in a driveway for 3 years, It was running before,what is the safest way to make it run again?


Depends if you kept fluids in it. If so Just try to turn it over with a new battery. You old one probably is no good. After a few turns if you have new gas in tank, it should start. I bought a Ford Ranger that sat up for 3 years and it cranked right up.

Bike has sat up for a year or so,wont start,cranks fine,has spark,maybe bad fuel ?


If no fuel stabilizer was added while the bike sat for a year or so.
It is most likely bad fuel with gum deposits.
This can can create some problematic symptoms for you.

It is vital the bad fuel to be cleared from tank/lines and carbs.
You may need the fuel system cleaned as the gum deposits can cause major headaches in the carbs and jets. If the system is not cleaned and even after you get the bike running, you could be miles away and have the fuel fowl jets/injectors, causing shut down.

Check the spark plugs carefully. Oil on the plugs may just need cleaning. Once you get the bike running the oil should burn off if the rings are still in good shape.

Motor needs clean Air, Clean Gas and a hot spark.

Good luck!

1996 5 speed honda accord. sat for a year. put in new battery. everything lights up, but car wont start. never had previous problem.


Are you saying the car turns over (cranks) but it does not start? Or, the car is Not turning over?
If it is cranking over but not starting, and it ran fine before sitting for the year, it may be water/moisture in the gas. Try some dry gas, and/or Carb-fuel injection cleaner in your gas tank.
