I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure they guy said EFI... I've never seen an EFI bike with a carb. Try pulling & cleaning the injectors.

You are due for a fuel system cleaning. With the bike sitting, you have gotten plaque build up in the lines, and the carb. Start by removing the lines and soaking in carb cleaner then blow out with compressed air. An even better idea would be to replace the lines because the plaque could loosen and make it to a jet. You will need to replace the inline filter and make sure the screen in your tank is clean and free of debris. The carb will likely need to be removed, taken apart and soaked in carb cleaner as well. It will need to be blown out with compressed air...especially the jets. Be careful not to blow out needle seats unless you have replacements, which would be a good idea as well. Replace the gasket that goes from the carb to the intake to eliminate the possibility of pulling air there. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

I was driving my 1994 isuzu rodeo and lost complete power.Got a few jumps and truck wont start.sounds like it wants to start when i turn key over.I also put gas in and still nothing


run the fault codes
check for cam/crank position sensors failure, immobilizer failure , pump operation
could be a failed ECM
have the battery load tested as it may be the original fault and jump starting may have caused a power surge and damaged the ECM

2005 Saturn vue wants to fire but won't. Battery reads 12.2.volts prior to starting and drops to 9 volts when trying to start. replaced cap and it started on first try. it had a rough idle before...


Unfortunately the answers you have given for replacing a cap is too vague. Is it a gas cap, radiator cap, air conditioning service port cap.... Look the battery needs charged that is why the battery drops to 9 volts, a good charged battery should drop to 10 volts. Check your battery terminals or cables for corrosion. Do a voltage drop tests on both positive and ground cables. As far as not starting any more...do you mean not cranking as in no starter eengagement or cranking but not running? If it is not running listen to hear in the first 10 seconds to the fuel pump relay if it engages or listen for fuel pump...is the car getting spark?

05 Altima cranks but wont start, new cam and crank sensor, new battery, fuel line is ok???


If the car sat, would bet all the money in my pockets that it's bad gas. Adding fresh gas won't solve the problem. You need to add a fuel stabilizer ( purchased for under $10 at Autozone) that you just add directly to the tank.
It could also be the case that the coil wires are dry and cracked from sitting, cause sparks to ground out.

Whenever your car won't start it is always one of three things-- fuel, spark or air. I hear you saying fuel is coming in, but to be sure you could try spraying a quick spray of carb cleaner or better yet starter fluid into the air intake and see if it briefly starts. If it does, then shuts down immediately, it's a fuel issue.

If not, then it is likely spark (air is usually not restricted but you may as well check the air filter and throttle body and make sure they aren't clogged. )

Check the spark in each cylinder. The problem could be a bad coil or fouled plugs.

If fuel, air and spark all check out, then the problem could be timing but this is highly unlikely.

2003 suburban has been siting for 3 years and now won't start. I can hear fuel pump working when key is ON. Battery is charged. What could it be? It cranks over like no fuel or spark getting to it


If it's been sitting for 3 years I would do as follows
1. Drain tank of all gas, give it some fresh gas.
2. Change the Spark Plugs
Attempt to start it. (Keep in mind it may take a few times to get all that old gas out of the lines)
Sitting it the worst thing for a rig. I advise never let it go without starting it ATLEAST once a month
If that doesn't work make sure it is getting fuel to the motor.
If so it could be your Distributor or Coil. Good luck

Engine won't crank on a 18.5hp 4000. I checked mechanical interlocks, charged battery and put in fresh gas. New carb and fuel lines put in last year. When I turn the key, there is a click and the ammeter...


The starter solenoid is most likely the clicking you hear. It has contacts inside which go bad. These are about $10 and easily replaced. Just follow the + battery cable and it will lead you to the solenoid.
