Try pulling on choke alittel to see if it does run...if so its starving of fuel.

If it dies quicker its running too rich / ??flooding.

How do I fix my 050AV stihl chain saw

as you didn't mention any details of this saw , im gonna suspect its at least 10+ years old , and I can say if its still got its original points and condenser , even its orig coil that's where id start looking for a problem ! , I do assume you have already tried a new plug as they do short out sometime and wont fire even in air !! , these are great saws they have been making this design since 1968 (I have a 72 that still runs !!!) and they still make them ,although they renamed it a farm boss nowadays , its still the same design , although they don't come with points any more no there all electronic now

My '99 chevy truck with 5,7L 350 will start but wont stay running. put new fuel pump and relay switch in

First you must determine if the fuel is stopping or the spark is stopping..If the fuel is stopping this could be a computer problem.. If the spark is stopping then it could be the IGN Module in the distributer. or any nomber of sensors. Squirt a little fuel directly into the Throttle body on the intake manifold.. If the truck runs longer its probably loss of fuel.. Do this several times to make sure, be careful and only use a small amounty of fuel.. you do not want a fire.. RE: Spark: Take a plug wire and an old plug..put the wire on the plug.. hold the plug against a good ground .. have someone crank the engine .. does the plug stop firing? The engine dies.. and will not restart for a minuet or so.. during this "no start" time do the plug test. If the plug will not fire during this time take the module out and take it to Orillys Auto parts.. They can test it.. really expensive part. Don't replace until you know it is BAD..

1974 honda 550 four will not start no fire to the plugs

Make sure you have a fully charged battery. The ignition system on a Honda draws it's power from the battery not the charge coils. Start by replacing your points and condenser. You probably have shorted or grounded points which translate to no spark at the plug. New spark plugs and spark plug caps (caps unscrew off of the end of the wire) will also increase the efficiency of the spark.

I have a 1972 Honda xl250. It sat outside for 10 years before I got it. Alls it needed was a carb and it cranked after the 4th or 5th kick. About a week later it quit running. I figured out that it was'nt...

You are probably dealing with dirty,burnt,or shorting points. Try replacing the points located at the end of the crankshaft under the cover held on by two screws. You may have to install and reinstall the points several times before you can get the new points to work. Chances are the points in the machine are almost 40 years old. Also , Honda ignition systems run off the battery. In most Honda models if you do not have a good, charged battery , you will not get spark.

1972 CB350... just put new battery in, new spark plugs,it will start but wont stay running, i think its only running on the left carb because the right exhaust pipe is cool. revving up the RPMs dont seem...

04 yfz 450 wont start with electrical start

i have a 04 yfz 450 quad. the compression ratio like yours is extremely high. ive had my battery go bad and found that another battery other than factory would turn over the engine, but would not start. i paid the 100 dollars for the factory battery and it fired right up. because of the high compression you need a high cranking battery.
