Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom

1 Answer

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 run until I gave it gas, but now it will not even start. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. The battery is charged up so that is not the problem.

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.

When gas tank is about half empty the engine want to die when driving


The gas filter is clogged up.
It's in the gas tank. You should buy a new gas pump and it comes with a new filter. This will kill two birds with one stone.

It sounds like you still have dirt floating around. What did you coat the tank with? I used POR-15 with great results. Install a gas filter that you can see through and see if you are still getting dirt from the tank. Check the new carb for dirt. It sounds like something is somewhat plugged which allows gas to slowly fill your carb after it sits. But this clog is what causes your bike to stop after 5 miles. Does your tank have a shutoff valve? Run a line from the valve to a jar and see how well the gas flows. The shutoff valves usually have a screen....check it for dirt.

Gas coming out of exhaust, wont idle, dies when fuel is applied


Gas came out because it is flooded. Check the spark plug for damage.

If it has been sitting for a while empty fuel tank. Prepare fresh fuel/oil mixture to fuel tank. Add two ounces of 100% acetone (available at Walmart) and attempt to start several times. Let sit for several minutes. Repeat until it acts like it wants to start.

Then watch this video and do it:

Never let tiller sit with fuel for any prolonged period of time. Run it out of fuel before storing or sitting. Acteone will remove varnish from inside.

Respected Sir, I purchase a Husqvarna's chainsaw last week Model 236- 14". but I cant start it. I read manual carefully, every thing is OK. but Chainsaw can't start yet. So I request you,...


Checklist:

2-cycle oil mixed with FRESH gasoline
Spark plug wire pushed onto spark plug
Chain tight but you can still move it forward with your hand
Switch turned on
Pull the cord a few times, and then let it sit for a few minutes in case it's 'flooded' with fuel

If a new chain saw won't start, it probably has defective spark coil
Chain saws usually don't cause problems fresh out of the box, they stop working if people leave gasoline in the tank for a couple months each time.

Here's what I would do
Empty the tank of gas. Put fresh gas-n-oil into tank (not gas from an old can that was sitting there for a while)
Try starting again.
If no luck, then take it back and exchange for another.

Good luck sir.

I live in Las Vegas Nevada and it gets pretty hot Blazer dies out


I do not know what year your truck is but I would remove the ignition module from inside the distributer and remove the rotor so you would have access to the module. Take the module to oreillys and have them test it. Sometimes they make the car act like the car is running out of gas.

08 ranger fuel gauge won't show full


the bad thing about new gas formulas is that they dont store well and after a time will actually start eating at all parts expossed to it. i would suggest that you install a new pump and sender unit. then add a premium fuel conditioner.
