If an engine has timing, compression, the right amount of fuel entering the combustion chamber and an adequate spark it must start and run.

The fact it doesn't start and run means at least one of those requirements is absent. Perhaps fuel is stale, not reaching the combustion chamber or maybe there is too much fuel.

A quick check of the spark and ignition can be made by cranking the engine and using an ether spray into the intake. If the engine briefly runs it can be assumed the ignition is good enough and the problem is fuel related.

Hi 260 42cc starts good but after using for awhile and shut it off it wont start, it will fire and run a few seconds and quits, does this every time but wont start and run, if i let it sit a few hrs and...

It could be a number of things, bad fuel ( stale) engine over heating and causeing vapour lock, or a bad ignition unit, start with fresh fuel, replace the fuel filter in the tank, try just slackeing the fuel cap and try starting again, this will rule out the fuel tank breather, if still no better replace the ignition unit.

Briggs and Stratton Intek V twin 22HP motor misfires.

Misfiring could be caused by simple things like fouled or worn out sparkplugs or an ignition system that is slightly faulty or Fuel problems such as dirty or stale fuel or clogged filter causing a leam mixture. Some B & S motors have an switch that cuts the Ignition if the oil pressure or oil level is low.
Another cause could be the Valve clearances are out of adjustment.
Armed with your Engine Number, visit the B & S Website for comprehensive information and specifications as well as a good FAQ listing.

When the engine gets warm it starts to cut out when sawing, take it off the log and give the engine it seems to sound right, Husqvarna 435 16 in chainsaw

1. Clean the air filter.
2. Drain and refill the fuel reservoir with freshly mixed fuel/oil.

It sounds as though the fuel setting isn't quite right. Don't try to adjust it with a dirty air filter (to lean once cleaned) or stale fuel.
If it still acts up I'd take it to a good local chainsaw seller/mechanic. It needs to be warm before adjusting and if they don't make a cut after the adjustment they would never get my saw again. HTH

1997 acura trys to start but wont turn over...

Sounds like a electronic spark module. You need to check if this happens again if it has spark at the end of the plug wires. At least if we know it has spark when this happens we can look at something else. If you take one wire off if this happens again take a paper clip or screw or anything metal and insert it into the wire boot. Lay it on the block of the engine and have someone turn the engine over while you watch for spark. If there is spark then we can move onto something else.

Driving down the road and staled

Is the car diesel or petrol?

If a diesel, you might check the diesel pump drive belt (at the right side of engine when looking at the engine from front of car). It's possible the teeth on the belt have stripped and put the pump timing out. An alternative may be a "stop solenoid" failure. The solenoid stops diesel getting to the injectors when the "ignition" is turned off and "stalls" the engine.

I don't know if the injector pump on a petrol engine has a similar setup as a diesel but it might be worth checking.
