Clean the air filter if you have not done it yet. Get a spray can of starting fluid and spray into the filter. You did check the plugs for spark didn't you? If no spark, check the sidestand kill switch as well as the handlebar kill switch.

2001 won't start after sitting 3 month winter in garage' New gas & full charge on Battery,turned over,,& fired but stalled,won't re-fire


Hi, John if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

My Dodge caravan will not start when cold.


the entire system must be in good working condition for a vehicle to start in cold weather. Strong battery, clean cable connections at the battery, good starter, clean/gapped plugs, clean injectors, good plug wires, clean fuel filter, clean air filer, and good gas. If a vehicle sits with a partially filled tank for long periods, condensation can form in the tank and freeze. Use gas line antiifreeze in the winter.

My 2000 FB has been sitting almost a year have a new battery turns over wont start? what do i do next ? should the gas be drained?


Yes, drain and replace the fuel.
You might want to check &/or replace your fuel filter(s).
Pull your spark plugs, clean and gap them, then replace them.
Check to make sure you have a spark.
Good time to make sure your air filter is clean.
Try starting it again.

Honda eb3800x will not start. I started and ran it in June 2010 with no problem. Will not start today 9/2/2010. Checked oil, checked spark plug, drained all gas and put new gas. Carb getting fuel....


the worst thing for generator and compressors are to sit up. when you do sit them up put stabil in the gas. run it and then run the gas out of the carburator. now, make sure the gas in the tank is good and has no water or trash. check the fuel line that it is in good conditon and not plugged. pull the carberator and clean varnish out and clean jets. soak it over nite in varsol or parts cleaner. check to see if you have a low oil shut off. oil level must be correct. check your exhaust to make sure it isn't plugged. some have a little screen that get coated with carbon and won't let it exhaust.( fuel in, spark, exhaust out)

I can not keep my mower running. It ran great before winter, now it acts like it is going to run.. but dies. I have new gas in it, new oil, and changed the spark plug. What else could it be? craftsman...


Hi, I would suggest taking the main jet out of the carberator and cleaning it with carb cleaner. If you did'nt drain the gas out of it before winter, the gas has gotten old and has plugged up your main jet in the carberator. It could also be that the needle has got **** on it and is stuck, I'd clean that also. Your problem is all in the carberator, and old stale gas sitting in it all winter is the reason.

Basicaly brand new cr25o mx bike wont start


Assuming you are using fresh gas. Check to see if gas is coming out of the line, if not blow back up into the tank and if that works there's dirt in the tank. Check the spark by removing the plug and kicking it over with the plug touching the engine, look for spark. If no spark, try a new plug, if still no spark, you have a stator problem. It wouldn't hurt to clean the air filter in any case. Good luck!

Has been sitting up for a year and i'm having trouble getting it to turn over


Check spark (Clean/replace) plugs look for good spark; check battery (bad terminals can interfere with a good ground); check air filters (not clogged that will affect fuel/air mix), check new gas (old gas varnishes in as little as 3-4 months); check carbs( drain floats and look for crud)....Gotta be one of these...process of elimination.
