Crank engine a few times. If spark plug is dry carb needs dismantling and cleaning. Probably gummed up.

I ran my car out of gas and after putting gas in it still wouldnt start. i got told to change the fuel filter...i did and still wont start even thou it wants to...it trys to turn over but still wont...


You don't pressurize anything
You didn't have to change the filter either

You need to check to see if the fuel pump
comes on at all,in the start position when cranking

If you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail on engine

If not then the fuel pump may have failed

Also, do you have a crank signal, spark,etc

Have it taken to a repair shop

Hobart 10,000 has been sitting for about 3 years and won't start any suggestions?


I know this is an old post, but I just had this same situation. Inherited a unit from my father in law and it had be sitting about a year. I drained the gas tank (disconnect fuel line and pressurize tank inlet with shop vac) and flushed out fuel lines and replace fuel filter, air filter, oil and filter. Cleaned and lubricated all carb and choke mechanisms. Sprayed a bunch of carb cleaner and let it soak. Put in fresh gas. Cranked and cranked and cranked. Did not start right away, but stuck with it. I put some gas in a syringe used for injecting meat (just so you know the size) and remove everything above the carb venturi. Put about 1 cc of gas directly in the carb and cranked. it started and ran until that gas burned up (about 2 seconds). It ran ok but wasn't getting fuel so I suspected the fuel pump. Kept at it and repeated this about 15 to 20 times and noticed that it would run just a wee but longer each time. Until finally it caught and ran strong. Put everything back and it is in great shape. Hope that helps. Also, I noticed there was quite a bit of moisture in the muffler. This sputtered out until it got out enough to evaporate it all out. I now keep it covered when not in use - something I am not sure my father in law did.

My 05 Yamaha Grizzly 660 will not start. In my limited troublshooting practice I looked at FUEL, FIRE and AIR. Here is the fault, the engine will not start. I checked wires/fuses, plugs, fuel lines and air...


Sounds like you have a stuck float needle in the carbs (2). Usually after a few days with gas in the carb they will free up, you could 'knock' on the carbs with the plastic end of a screwdriver to help free them up. If not, turn off fuel, drain the carbs and fill them with carb cleaner for 24 hours. Redrain, attach fuel lines and turn the gas back on. If still no start it's time for a rebuild...

I have a 1991 honda cr 250 I cant get to start at fist gas ran right thru carb and out bottom i took carb apart and got the floats to stop sticking cleaned it out with carb cleaner put back together but...


try a new spark plug. if u fowl out a plug some time they will not fire under compression.2 strokes need. fuel,fire and air, very simple engines.it is possible crank seal are bad .that doesn't allow the engine to create vacuum in the crank case.thus fuel and air will not make it to combustion chamber.

Motorcycles wont start


Your bike needs 4 things to run-Fuel, Spark, Air and Compression. One or some of these are missing.

1) Crank engine over several times to start. Remove spark plug. If plug is wet and smells like gas then it is getting fuel.

2) Check for spark
Put spark plug back into spark plug cap and lay spark end along side bolt or part of unpainted head making contact and crank over engine as if to start. If no spark then is electrical problem. Try changing spark plug. Check grounds. If not plug or grounds then purchase a shop manual from your local dealer and ohms test all electeical componet resistances as shop manual instructs. Be sure components do not meet specks before purchasing.

3) If has spark and plug was wet upon removal then gas has water or just old gas. If you drained the carb via bottom of carb screw into a clean clear container and see stuff at the bottom then carb is dirty with water and or dirt.

If your bike has been sitting along time condensation will build explaining water and or gas will loose its kick after sitting too long. If you think it has been sitting a long time it is best to dispose of old gas and refill with new. Water can also get into tank from gas can when fully tipped upright so dont dump every last drop into the tank...most ofter the last couple of cups are water.

If bike has been sitting for a few days and was running fine before that, turn off gas, drain carb via bottom of carb screw, close off screw and turn gas back on. This will refresh the gas in carb.

If none of these are the case and you have good fuel, good spark...check air filter for air flow. If all this is good then you need to do a compression check. A simple way to do it is to stick your finger in the spark plug hole and hold it in there with some force and have a friend try to start the bike. If it blows your finger out then it has compression. If it doesnt want to force your finger out then you have no compression and is a piston and ring problem. The only way to test compression for sure it to purchase a compression tester from auto parts store that has an adapter for your size plug hole and do a proper test. I hope this helps.
