Sounds like the float is sticking. You will need to remove the carb and clean the inside and clean all the jets real good.

you may have the timing in place but it depends on the adjustment on the timing belt there are markings that have to be set for new belt and old belt. if these are out then the engine will not start. white smoke can be caused as you have flooded the engine.or there is warter in the exhaust system.

Engine starts then backfires and sometimes leaks gas on exhaust


IS it leaking gas on the exhaust or thru the exhaust. I have seen the float in the carb stick in the down or fill position and flood thru the exhaust.

It sounds like your carburetor float is stuck open, which would explain the flooding, the white smoke, and the gas coming out of the exhaust. Sounds like you may have gotten a faulty carburetor. If you can, I would return it where you bought it and get a replacement. Else, you will need to have the carburetor rebuilt, or have the valves checked out.

My aprilia 125 moped will not start, there is a spark at the plug, stinks of flooded fuel, it's soaking the plug when kicked over, what's problem?


Sounds like the engine is flooded with gas.Turn the fuel off if you can.Remove the spark plug and move the wire away from the spark plug hole.Now turn the engine over like your trying to start it.See if gas comes out spark plug hole if yes engine is flooded.If it is flood that bad your exhaust will have fuel in it also.You should get a new spark plug before trying to start it again.If gas does not come out the plug hole.Install the new plug and try starting it with the fuel off.Hope this helps.

My 2001 Hyundai Sonata's check engine light is on and it's running really rough, trying to die when idling and surging while being driven. Could his be a sensor, or maybe a coil? Thanks for any info you...


I Have similar problems in mine. At engine idle it sounds like the engine has "hiccups" and when accelerated i lose power and sounds boggy or like the engine is choking. i ran tests and it is caused by failire of the oxygen or O2 censor. If you look at the very front of the engine at the exhaust manifold where the exhaust system starts there will be 2 plugs on the right side of the manifold and the bottom one is the o2 censor.

1990 regal starts, runs for 2 to 3 min then dies, changed fuel filter, crank sensor, coil packs, it has 45 pounds of prs. to rail. im stumped


hi, please check you oil level, ( on level ground). when the car is running place an old rag in front of you and take off the oil filler cap (be careful not to get near the fan, fan belt) if no oil comes out of the filler hole possible fault: oil pick-up pipe (in sump partial block), / oil filter in sump ( blocked), oil pump worn, oil relief valve (returning oil back into the sump), spring weak / broken. the (E C U) ENGINE CONTROL UNIT has many sensors that can stop the engine: but try cleaning the (EGR) ENGINE GAS RECIRCLING VALVE, this valve recycles gas back in to the engine, ( must be CLEANED with BRAKE FLUID) this is a VERY DIRTY job, as this gets block with carbon (EXHAUST PARTICULES). the E C U will detect all of these sensors: the (ECT), TOP OF ENGINE engine coolant temperature sensor rough tick over, (HO2), EXHAUST DOWN PIPE, heated oxygen sensor checks mixture of fuel, can adjust air / fuel, it tries to keep car going / may flood engine. (M A F) mass air flow, adjusts fuel / air retio this sensor can so much fuel to the engine it may flood it. flooded engine mean WET spark plugs. i would put it on dianostic machine to check these out before paying for extra sensors. gerry

My 1996 skidoo is blowing gas/oil out the exhaust


the air/fuel mixture may be too high on the carb.
there are adjustment screws on the carb.
make very small adjustments.
keep in mind that 2stroke engines like yours are supposed to have oil/gas in the exhaust.
you could lean the fuel/oil mix a little if it is a very excessive amount.
