Sounds like a cracked compression ring, oil ring or both.
You'll have to pull the cylinder off to find out for sure, but a compression test should give you a pretty good indication.

Carbon fouling spark plugs


Weak Spark, worn piston rings(Burning oil/compression issues), lack of compression, wrong spark plugs, incorrect spark plug gap, engine not reaching operating temperature (Due to short use), carb. is running rich (May need adjusting), dirty air filter (Causing carb. to choke and run rich). Bad gas
All these symptoms could lead up to fouling plugs.
Hope This Helps.

Saw won't start without starting fluid.


Sounds like you have a compression problem. Starting fluid will fire at a much lower compression than a gas/oil mix so that's why it will start with it. When the motor is running you get a little more compression because the piston is coming up so fast. You should check the condition of your cylinder wall and piston & ring. If they are damaged at all you loose compression which directly affects starting and running power.

I have spark and getting fuel won't start


if its a 2 stroke then you need fuel spark and air to get the bike to start have you got compression? check it by removing the spark plug and put your finger over the hole air try and start the bike your finger should be pulled into the hole if not then a piston ring is either cracked or broken

open the air box and check the filter then clean the carb thats all you need for a 2 stroke

if its a 4 stroke then again check the air filter and compression remember that a 4 stroke doesnt have the oil with the fuel it goes in a separate chamber

hope this helps

Was riding bike and was stopped at a red light when it made a loud noise and died, now it won't start. The engine cranks and turns over but won't start.


You didn't say what year and model the bike was but on any four stroke engine, you must have three things for the engine to run. You need fuel, spark, and compression. The easy one to check is the fuel. Take your air filter off and make sure you're getting fuel to the engine. Then, check your spark. Pull the spark plug wires off the spark plugs in the head and insert another set of plugs in the wires. Ground the plugs against the engine, turn the ignition switch on and press the start button. Watch the plugs to see if you have spark. The next test is compression. With the engine cold, remove the spark plugs. If you have a compression gauge, connect it to one of the heads and spin the engine over with the starter. If you don't have a gauge, simply put your finger over the spark plug hole. Turn the throttle wide open and press the start button. You should show about a hundred pounds of compression if you have a gauge or the compression should blow your finger off the hole with a good deal of force if you're checking it that way. If you have all three of these and they're timed correctly, the engine should run. If the engine won't run, find out which of the three elements is missing and work from there.

Good Luck

Oil in air cleaner


Run it minus an air filter until all the oil is off your piston head, you can also try keeping the plug out and ejecting the oil via that access by pulling the cord. It seems like you've already solved the problem, now you're just cleaning up.

Qlink stalling ploblem


first clean the air filter and change the spark plug. run the bike at highway speed again to see if it acts up again. if it does pull the plug again and check it. if its whitish to light grey, you are running to lean at mid range. if it is black with carbon on it you are running too rich. either way it would point to carburetor air/fuel mix issues aslong as your air filter is clean and you have a good fuel supply. if it was me, i would also check and adjust the valve clearance and do a compression test. also check for fuel in the oil coming from slow leaking float needle in carburetor will cause a rich stalling condition as bike warms up after several minutes.

Scooter losing power in moving forward when stopped at stoplight. Also, loses power en route. Reached 350 miles on odometer. Went to change engine/gear oil. Took off ''oil pan'' screw. Only ~<50 mL came...


Check your jets in your carbs and also could be bad fuel. Poor some sea foam in it and some new fuel and check to see if the inline filter is plugged and check your air filter as well.

2001 ford focus won't stay running after flood


pull your spark plug wires and look down to the spark plugs and make sure there isnt water in the spark plug holes if there is just blow out with compressed air to dry out.
and make sure the air box has no water and free from any debris
good luck
