If it's getting spark but not starting, it's likely that the carburetor is plugged up.

Spray some carburetor cleaner down the throat of the carburetor to try to clear the jets.

Otherwise, may need to rebuild carburetors, especially if the bike has been sitting around for over a year.

good luck on this one.

Want start. Getting fuel. No fire at spark plug


These engines have a low oil sensor and if the oil is low, the engine will not have fire. So check the oil level first and make sure it is to the full mark.

Check the spark plug that it still has proper gap .028-.031 in and the proper spark plug BPR6ES (NGK) or W20EPR-U (ND). While you have the spark plug out let's see that it is firing, reattach the plug wire to the spark plug and make sure the spark plug is in contact of a bare metal surface for a ground, the crank the engine over watching for spark in the gap of the spark plug. It would be best to check this in a low light area. Keep in mind that checking for spark this way and there is spark but when the spark plug is installed and there is compression the spark may not jump the gap as it should. If no spark with the plug out check the spark plug wire for cuts or tears and it none seen get a new spark plug. If there is spark with the spark plug out reinstall the spark plug. If the engine hasn't been started for some time drain the gas out of the fuel tank and carburetor. There could be water in the fuel also but to check if there is fire get a can of starting fluid. Drain the carburetor anyway at this point because if there is water in the fuel the next step may not fire the engine because of the water. Take the air filter out and give the opening of the carburetor a short spray of starting fluid. Try to start the engine, if it doesn't start or fire with the starting fluid there is something wrong in the ignition system. The Digital CDI Ignition Coil could be bad but before buying a new one you need to check the shear key of the flywheel to the crankshaft to make sure it is in good shape. You will need to remove the flywheel for this. If the key is in very good shape, then it is the coil.

If the engine fires on the starting fluid then you have water in the fuel or the fuel is not getting into the engine as it should from the carburetor. The carburetor needs to be cleaned.

2320 johne deere tractor cranks over but won't start


Check you have fuel.
If fuel check fuel is getting to cylinder - the spark plug will be wet and smell of petrol (gas). If not check and clean the carburettor
Check you have a spark at the plug (not for diesels).
If it has an automatic choke make sure that it's working.
If you have fuel and a spark, you can warm the spark plugs in the oven (make sure wife is out shopping first) as this will help starting. Or try a starting fluid such as Easy Start.
If no spark then clean and gap the plugs (try new ones) make sure the leads are clean and all connections are tight. That's about it unless you're confident enough to start stripping things down.

Wont start


I would check your fuel first. Replace fresh fuel, check fuel filter if equipped, check fuel line to not be clogged. When trying to start make sure fuel is getting to carb. If after checking all the above, it still doesn't start, I would check the spark. Make sure you are getting a spark, clean and or replace spark plug. Best of luck.

Mac 3516 chainsaw won't start


Electronic ignition units work off speed of rotation so make sure yoy are cranking the engine fast enough, make sure the plug is well earthed against the cylinder whilst cranking, make sure the switch is in the on position, if there is still no spark you will have to replace the unit.

PE-200 ignition. Will not start. Do not get indication of spark with an ignition tester.


Hi ronaldlhe580...

Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.
Please take time to rate me

Motor turns but will not start


You need fuel, air, and fire to start the car. Make sure you check the fuel components. Make sure they work. Fuel pump, filter, lines, injectors, pump fuse/relay. Fuel goes from the pump to the filter, from the filter through the gas lines and then to the engine. Make sure gas is getting through. If the gas checks out, make sure you are getting spark. It could be spark plugs/coils, wires, coil pack, distributor, dist.cap, rotor, cam sensor, crank sensor, ecm. You need to do a spark test. Check your timing belt/chain. Anyone of these can cause your car not to start. I know it is a lot. That is why it is important to check for gas and spark. Make sure you check all your wires, connections, and hoses. Make sure there is no intake leaks. If you have any questions, please let me know.

2007 nissan titan turns over but wont start no spark to the plugs .


The problem could be in the spark plugs. Usually if just one of the spark plugs is not producing the spark needed, the engine would still start. It may run rough, but will still start. If none of the spark plugs are producing a spark (or firing) then this could be the culprit.The spark plugs gets power to spark from coil packs.So check the coil pack first.If the coil pack checked ok then its faulty spark plugs causing this problem.Also remove the spark plug connection and clean it and reconnect it and recheck.In some cases this helps. ---------------That's it.

Lawn mower won't start /troy built 100706


First check to see that you are getting a spark. if you are getting spark (if same plug when you bought it change spark plug) make sure it is correct plug for that mower, make sure you have good gas. If still not starting and the machine probably was sitting for a while, clean the carb and then it should run fine.
