Buy a gas can and pull hose off fuel filter and put it on reserve and let er rip. then drain all the float bowls bowls too! Buy some seafoam and add a little to your tank to clean out the vanish.

The old gas will cause hard starting for sure as it is 15 years old but if you don't have very much in the tank you can mix in some new gas.

My 1998 contour svt has been sitting for two years, trying to start car, it wont..is the gas bad in the tank


If it's been sitting for that long, yes the gas goes bad. Drain the tank, fuel lines and even the spark plugs becuase the old gas will foul them too.
Check air filter for free air flow and possible critters living in the intake... two years is quite a while for a car to sit... Also after it's running have your oil and filter changed as well.

My cycle would start but die when I give it gas so I emptied the gas out of it since it has been sitting for a long time. Put new gas in the tank and now it will not even start. Before it would start and...


Did you also drain the carbs when you drained the tank? You may have a vacuum controlled fuel valve which won't let the new gas into the carbs. If you can crank the motor long enough it should open and fill the carbs. Otherwise you can **** on the vacuum hose for half a minute and open the valve to fill the carbs that way. If it was sitting for a year or more it will likely need a carb cleaning, but it should run on new gas if it ran on old gas. Also if there is a fuel pump make sure it is working and any filter or screens in the tank fitting or inline that they are not blocked.

Chain saw starts with starting fluid only but will not run.


Hi lwhssh:
Suggest you drain the fresh gas/oil and add a fresh batch but first add a gas stabilizer to your batch of gas/oil in the storage container. You will probably still need to use starting fluid for a few times When 2 cycle engines sit for a long period of time, the gas/oil mixture undergoes a change and tends to leave a residue on the delicate parts of the carb. The gas stabilizer will help that.

I always do the following for 2 cycle engines when I put them up for the winter. Empty the gas container on the device and then start it to use up any gas left in the fuel lines and carb. this keeps any residue from forming.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please leave a rating if appropriate. Thanks
