Carbs have to come off and be completely cleaned and if your keeping the bike i would order carb kits and rebuild them while you have them off. the good thing is that when you are done the bike will likely run fine. when gas sits over 18 months it becomes a varnish like substance than plugs all the jets and the needle and seat. good luck. if you havent done this before get a manual and takes notes as you tear the carbs down and pictures if needed. if you take enough notes and dont let the job sit unfinished too long you should be able to do this without any problems.

Virago blowing out through air filter

Will, let me tell you the "Old school" way to fix this.(1) Remove all of the spark plugs. (2) Disconnect the fuel lines. (3) Pour light weight oil directly into the heads.(I know, sounds weird) (4) Crank Crank Crank Crank. Until the engine turns smoothly. If the valves were stuck, this should cure it! (5) Blow the oil out by the compression of the engine cranking. (6) Pour alcalhol into the cylindars to clean the oil out of the top of the pistons.(Starting fluid also works well) (7) Again, Blow it out using the compression of the engine. (8) Put everything back together and fire it up! NOTE!!!! Any time you know you are going to store anything with an internal combustion engine, treat the engine in the same way, by pouring oil into, and onto the pistons directly. This prevents seize ups, and helps to preserve oil seals. ^^

My 95 taurus (3.0) want start. it trys to start, but it just don't go on. It has fuel pressure and spark. I have always heard if it is firing and gets gas it will run. Not this one. Any advise thanks.

Maybe the fuel injectors are not firing even though there is pressure. Try to add gas to the intake manifold through the throttle body ( a few tablespoons) or use starting fluid to see if it starts that way for a few seconds at least. If it does, then the injectors are not firing.

Also, the timing may have skipped.

Will not crank. Poured out gas, and mixed new. New plug. What else should I do??? Thanks

Will not crank, or spins over, and will not run? I suppose it is the 1st time this year? Let's start here. If the old plug was dry of gas, it needs a little priming, pull out your new plug you installed and pour a milk capful of gas in the sparkplug hole, put the plug back in and try starting, after 5 tries it should fire, and give you an idea whether to push the plunger, or crank a few more times.

I ran out of gas in my 95 chevy caveiler and i filled it up but the car still wont start is there anything i can do to fix this without takeing it to a shop

Try holding the gas pedal to the floor and crank the engine. Don't crank for more than a minute as it will burn out the starter. Good luck and if this doesn't work we can try something else. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thank you.
