I just bought a new Briggs and Stratton 675 ex push mower with ready start and it won't start


First how many primes did you give it? I had one brand new and it said will start first pull and prime it three times. Well I had to prime 12 to 20 times and pulled six times or more and started every time with that. Some how it was not set up properly.

Gas tank


no...Full is on...res is reserve...Pri is Prime.
Do not leave it on prime !!! This is for re-filling the carbs when they have been emptied.
It is a vacuum operated tap, when switched to full or reserve, fuel only flows when the engine turns over...prime flows fuel all of the time.
The tap should be set to full unless fuel is running low.
Leaving it on prime when not running can lead to serious engine damage !!!

There's a "buzzing" sound whenever I open my driver door (on my 2008 vw golf city) for the first time. Is this normal??


Yes, it's just the car anticipating it might be started . The system primes the fuel system before you turn the key receiving the signal from your door lock mechanism so it would always start at the first try. The sound comes from the bottom right near the fuel tank. All VW's do this.

nearly all petrol mower engines need to have the 'choke' engaged to start from cold. This enriches the fuel mixture, and is similar to priming. If there is a prime 'button' then you will probably have to use this all the time. This is normal.

However, you should check with your dealer to see if this is an unusual situation.

May 4, 2011 I purchased a Yard Machine Mower Model 12A-A140029 with a Briggs & Stratton 158cc/5.50 engine from Home Depot. From day one it was very difficult to start. (I have used it about five...


I have the same model purchased last spring from Home Depot. I finally learned to prime it 6 times instead of 3 like it says on the mower. After pushing the primer 6 times mine starts fine. It usually requires priming even when the engine is warm to get it to re-start unlike any mower I have had in the past.

Car shuts off as if starved of fuel remove fuel line and prime car starts


There's a fuel pump relay that turns on the fuel pump, as you turn on the ignition before the engine starts, to prime and pressurize the injectors. I'd check the relay it may not be operating.

Don't prime it 6 times.

Prime it once and try starting. Keep trying with one prime.

If that doesn't work, let it sit for a bit. And then prime it two times and try starting again.

If that doesn't work, try priming 3 times.

Then try half-choke with one pull only, and then move choke to run for the second pull.

The saw might have an on-off button

I need to replace the fuel filter, 1994 Buick Century Custom 3.1


If you press on the schrader valve it will release the pressure. It is in the rail near the power steering pump. After you are done with whatever you are doing cycle the key a few times to prime the fuel system.
