1. Check the plug(s).

2. Make sure the plug wire(s); coil wire, are not loose, melted or frayed. Check the distrubution (distributor cap if equipped) make sure all electrical components from the starter, to the ignition are all in good repair.

3. Fuel: Make sure the fuel is mixed right (if appropriate).

4. Make sure the air filter and fuel filter are new. Even a brand new filter can get plugged, even after installing it recently.

5. Fluids: Make sure your oil and all fluids are full.

Please let me know if you need further assitance.

1992 suzuki 750 it's got spark but won't start, what could it be?

engines require three things, spark-at the right moment, fuel, and compression. If you're sure you have a strong and consistent spark, move on to your fuel. Drain everything you can and start with fresh NON OXYGENATED (no alcohol) fuel. In recent years 1/2 the troubles I see is from poor quality fuel. I spray a shot of starting fluid into the airbox and if the bike starts or at least coughs that tells me I have a fuel problem. Last but not least perform a compression test. The psi isn't as important as each cylinder should be with 7lbs of the rest.
After an attempt to start, pull the plugs, are they wet or dry? If wet crank the engine over for 20-25 seconds with the plugs out and re attempt a start choke off and a light shot of starting fluid. Give this a look and report back your results. Good luck

My three wheeler doesn't stay running when it starts. What could be the problem besides the fuel line . just added a fuel filter on it but she still won't start or stay running at times. Co

The damage is already done before you put the fuel filter in. (dirt in Carb)
Remove your carb and dissesemble it and clean everything out and then put back on the machine with FRESH gas and you will be like a top !

Weed trimmer wont start, spark plug has spark starting fluid down the cylinder head and re installed plug still doesnt sputter at all. also sprayed starting fluid into carb. no sputter. again it does have...

The timinmg is preset by the permanent keyed slot built into the inside of the flywheel where it mates with the crankshaft. If the key was broken off, you would get No spark because of the nature of the magneto ignition. Your compression is actually pretty low for a 2 stroke. It should run higher like around 90+. Try this. With plug removed, cover plug hole with thumb and give the pull start a real strong pull. It should push your thumb off of the hole. If it doesn't the compression is too low for the engine to run. Scored piston walls, or cylinder walls could be the problem. Again 60PSI is really low. I would remove the jug and check for piston scoring and cylinder scoring. The engine can be easily rebuilt (but not real cost effective).

I have a 2002 Pontiac Montana, it has been having a rough time starting up. It wouldn't start at all around a month ago, we thought it was the battery so we got a jump. That seemed to help until recently...

I think a new set of spark plugs and a new air filter would help. The next time it doesn't want to start, don't keep cranking on the starter. That just runs the battery down. You need to check to see if there is fire at the spark plugs. If you got spark, then pull a spark plug and see if it is wet with gasoline. If it's dry, then you will know it's a fuel problem. And don't press on the gas pedal when your trying to start the engine. With fuel injection, that just makes things worse. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to find out if there's a problem with one of the many sensors.

  • Get a fresh spark plug
  • Check the spark plug for spark. Check kill switches if no spark
  • Check the air filter > plugged up?
  • Remove the carb and clean it inside and out

Why would a suzuki 4-wheeler not start. I have

Did you change the fuel filter? Is there a way to confirm that you're getting gasoline to the carburetor? If it fired once it should mean that you have spark to the plugs but there could also be a short in the kill switch circuitry that kills the ignition system. Pull a spark plug and put it in the spark plug wire socket, ground it against the motor and crank the engine and see if you're getting a good spark. Ensure that the air filter isn't dirty.

3 wheeler engine trouble

does your starter cable retract all the way?a lot of times it is the cable that is hard to pull.i just finished on a 1983 honda big red and my customer said he had engine troubles,but it was the whole entire pull start housing that was bad.

Running fine then wont'nt start

You will have to pull a spark plug out to check that you have spark when cranking the engine,while you have the plug/s out do a compression test to determine health of engine and wether it is in fact giving compression,eliminates other potential faults if compression is good.If you have compression(around 140 ish)and introduced fuel and it wont fire up it only leaves electrics as the fault.3 major engine requirements to run Fuel,Compression,ignition.When checking spark at night is best as you can easily see wether you have the correct type of spark,Blue and if its quite you will hear the spark as well.Your fault is consistant with ignition module,coil or lack of power to ignition.Faulty modules will give a spark but its too weak to ignite fuel and the spark will be yellow in color.Let me know how it goes.Good luck
