Hello sir, check to see if the engine is over full on oil and gas in the engine .this will make starter drag eventually ruining starter.this is the only thing i can think of other than engine having high compression or valves not opening and the pressure relief valve not working,or engine low on oil SAE 30 WT for summer, SAE5W30 for winter, is also important to keep good oil in engine and full. the solenoids under the carburetor will go bad,and cause flooding, if you have one. make sure you keep battery charged. if it is bad follow these directions ,well it is a simple fix,but a lot to correct problem, parts needed,1 new spark plug,1 new solenoid,1 quart of 30wt oil,1 pan to catch old oil in. tools needed,1 spark plug wrench,1,7/16 or 1/2 or 9/16 open wrench,pen&paper. ok, empty fuel tank or clamp off fuel line,make a drawing as how the wires are connected to the solenoid,white & black wires,unplug wire fittings,remove solenoid, in stall new solenoid,plug wires in. now drain oil & gas out of engine,remove old spark plug,important so follow directions,after oil is drained plug is out crank engine so to clean out cylinder of excess oil & gas,it would be a good ideal to let oil drain for a while. add oil & spark plug,engine will smoke for a while but should clear up.when you go to the parts store you will need engine horse power,engine brand,model number,type number,parts should cost around 50.00. including everything you need,check oil often you can put a inline fuel shutoff in the fuel line about $5.00, or replace solenoids for $40.00.hope this helps,DON'T FORGET THE 4 THUMBS UP,, up,any comments welcome,thank you.

what gas mixter do I use


40:1 is the ratio. That is 3.2 oz of 2-Stroke Oil in 1 US Gallon of gas. If your equipment runs or has been tuned a little "lean" it will not hurt it at all to use an even 4 ounces of oil in 1 gallon of gas. I highly recommend NOT using regular oil but to always use "synthetic" oil as it is much better for the machine. Too little oil and you can ruin the engine. Too much oil and the machine will just smoke excessively and maybe foul the sparkplug, clog up the spark arrestor and eventually clog the muffler.

check engine light comes on after refueling the vhicle. gauge doesn't read full, then it will. light goes out after a day or two.


Also, be sure to not over-fill the gas tank. When filling the tank, when it sounds full (you can hear gas gush up the filler neck) and when the filler clicks off the first time...don't be tempted to keep clicking more gas into the tank because over-filling can cause a variety of problems (including setting the light) and can eventually saturate/ruin the fuel vapor canisters.

starting motor ok, but sounds liKE starter bad!!


Hello beadingblond:

>>Check the Valve Clearances. If the Valve Clearances are Not Correct the Compression Release Does Not Operate as Designed and the Starter will seem to be Dragging.
>>Also, Is the Crankcase Oil Overfilled and Contaminated with Gas?
