Only thing left is compression. Stuck valves will affect compression as well as worn rings.

Where is compression release for polaris sportsman 4x4 atv


Polaris uses an automatic decompression that sits in the exhaust cam. There is not an external lever as there is on older Kawasaki's and dirtbikes. What seems to be the issue as to why you're looking for a compression release?

Had difficulty starting chainsaw DCS4610 for the first time. Think it was flooded. Problem now it wont idle.


Is this a new saw? If yes return it or at least ask for a recommended repair facility. Your saw is actually a Dolmar (owned by Makita) and a fine saw. In order to meet EPA requirements they are set very lean (many 5100s seize with factory settings). To protect your investment and not invalidate your warranty I recommend it be adjusted by the
professional recommended by the merchant where you purchased it or one recommended by Makita.
The starting procedure is probably similar to this:
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Most new owners miss opening the choke after it tries to start or do not hear the pop when it does and flood the saw.

M842 chainsaw wont start when hot


I suspect your warm start procedure is the fault, the manual is not correct IMO. Any choke on a warm engine causes flooding, try this, if no better post back or return it for warranty replacement.

  1. Ignition on/off to on.

I have a 2150 poulan that wont start. gets gas and spark plug fires


Read your manual cold start procedure carefully, especially the second note. IMO open the chock (not 1/2) once it tries to start and I think your problem will be solved. Try this start procedure I think it works better than the one in your manual.

Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed or 1/2.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
I am going to close this. If no better post back (below) and we will get into some trouble analysis. Yours is a better than normal question, Thank You

Blowing out gas at the start. Drained and filled with fresh gas mixture. Cleaned spark plug and srayed carb cleaner in hole. Pull choke pull cord , blowing gas out of carb. Stuck float? Buy carb kit from...


No floats in chainsaw carbs. Severly flooded most common start problem with chainsaws. Read and follow the start procedure in your manual. Don't use choke on flooded engine (may set fast idle, set then turn off)!

It wont start. does it have a compression valve


They have an Automatic Compression Release but not a compression valve as such. All the ACR is for is to make it iasier to spin at low RPM's as when pulling the rope or using the electric starter and as soon as the engine reaches approximately 300 rpm's it automatically releases itself. It is inside the engine and not accessible from the outside.

My portable air compressor turns on but wont turn


Check the operation of the relief valve. This is usually located near the regulator and gauge and has a small ring that you fit your finger in and pull outward. When you do so, compressed air should be released. If this is stuck or cant be released, there is your problem. It is quite dangerous to let the tank reach pressures beyond that allowed by the relief gauge. Usually 120-150 PSI.
