Gas coming out of the tailpipe when i try to start my motorcycle

When i try to start my motorcycle, it tries to turn over, but it doesn't. On top of that, gas dripped out of the tail pipe. I tried to start it again, and it didn't crank. The battery doesn't seem to be low.

Check your engine oil for raw fuel. If there is fuel in the oil you can smell it. If the float in the carb(s) is stuck open the fuel can run past the needle seat and into the cylinder then seep past the rings and end up in the crankcase oil. If there is fuel in the oil in the crankcase, drain and refill the oil and repair the carb before turning on the fuel petcock.

Is your choke stuck open? And maybe the slides in the carb are stuck in the up position.

Can't get it started Toro gas weed eater


(1)First check to make sure air filter is not clogged, next, turn the choke on. Next push the primer button 6 times (looks like a plastic see thru bubble, it will push gas to the carberator), Next pull cord till it purs only once, ( even a short purr), turn off choke and try to start.
(2) If it tried to start a little, repeat step 1, If not try to poor just the smallest amount of gas in the carburetor and try to start,
(3) If that didn't work check the spark plug and replace it if it's old or dirty!
( 4) If that doesn't work seek a proffessional but don't pay too much unless it is a top of the line tool!

I am trying to start a1987 1100sportster had running once for about half hour was popping thru carb and tailpipe tried adjusting carb helped sum i went start and now it wont.


There could be any number of reasons for the problem that you described. Your spark plugs could be fouled. Sportsters are very sensitive to this and they are notorious for not want to "clear themselves up" like Big Twins will do. Check your plugs to see if they're fouled.
Next, how long has the bike been sitting? If it has sat up for over three or four months, the carburetor is probably gummed up on the inside due the fuel in the float bowl evaporating and leaving the "varnish" behind to plug up the jets in the carb. You need to take the carb off and thoroughly clean it inside. Then, what type of carb do you have on the bike? You say you adjusted the carb but what did you adjust. If you have the stock carb, gently bottom the idle mixture screw then come back out about 1 1/2 turns. If it's an S&S carb, gently bottom the mixture screw and come back out about 3/4 turns. This is a good starting point for the adjustment on either carb. Make sure you've got fresh fuel in the tank as well. Old fuel just won't run right and todays fuel doesn't last but about 6-9 months before it's flat. Be careful about running the engine for times over 15 minutes from a cold start without a fan or something blowing on it. Sitting still and running for extended periods of time can overheat the top end.

Good Luck

Floats are sticking in carbs and staying open which causes fuel to overflow.you can try tapping float bowls with screwdriver handle sometimes this will free up floats .If this dosen't work you have to remove and clean carbs.Good Luck

It sat for five years,when i got it started and reved engine sparks and fire came out of tail pipe


One or more carb floats is probably stuck open. This causes unburned gas to get into the tailpipe. The sparks and fire are the result of the fuel igniting while inside the tailpipe.

sometimes if you run out of fuel it can **** all the **** into the fuel filter causing slight fuel starvation making the engine run hotter as believe it or not fuel also has some cooling and lubing effects on your engine thus giving you sone smoke out of your exhaust as it's trying to burn off the carbon in your tailpipe.
Know it's a long shot but it may just be this.

Hope this helps

Car wont start starter turns fast but dont start as if out of gas.i have gas.


If the starter is turning fast you either have no fuel getting to the injectors or no spark to ignite the fuel. If you smell gas coming out of the tailpipe it's probably spark related. If you smell no gas coming out of the tailpipe it may be your fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter. Check the fuel pressure.

12 miles a gallon.. Put on new thrmostat


a few things you can do is replace the fuel filter, air filter, and do a thorough injection cleaning. you can do this simply by buying a can of sea foam from any auto store and turn the car on and pull out a brake booster hose. this is located under the hood in the top right. it should be black, big and circle. also two hoses should come out of it. slowly pour the seafoam in. try your best to keep it running. once it starts bogging down, stop for a second then keep adding. do about a half a can and pour the other half in your fuel tank. turn the car off for about 5-10 minutes and then start it. lots of smoke will come from your tailpipe, but thats okay because that is all that carbon build up. and you should notice more gas mileage!
