Pulley is stuck how do you resolve problem?


Pulley ? What pulley?
If you mean the recoil starter pull cord is stuck it might be a simple fix. Did your machine tip over on its side?
If it did oil often flows into the cylinder. Just remove the spark plug. The recoil cord should pull easily and oil will spurt out the spark plug opening. Pull until oil stops coming out. Check your oil level. Replace your spark plug and see if she starts.

Spark Plug

Every chainsaw relies on a spark plug to ignite the air-fuel mixture for proper combustion. Over time the electrode on the spark plug will burn away and the engine does not start. If the engine does not start, remove and inspect the spark plug. If there is any doubt that the plug is working properly replace it.

Carburetor

If the chainsaw won't start, the carburetor might be clogged or have bad fuel in the float bowl. If old fuel was left in the chainsaw for a long time some of the volatile ingredients may have evaporated, leaving a thicker, stickier product that is more like varnish or shellac. This sticky fuel can clog up the small jets and ports in the carburetor and it can be difficult to burn making it hard to start the engine. The only solution is to drain the old fuel from the float bowl and thoroughly clean the carburetor with carburetor cleaner. If that isn't effective, replace the entire carburetor.

On - Off Switch

Chainsaws are equipped with an on/off switch. If the chainsaw does not start, this switch might be defective. Check the switch for continuity. In the on position the switch should have continuity.

Safety Switch

If the chainsaw does no start, the safety switch - or throttle control switch - might be defective. If the switch isn't engaging with the throttle it won't provide enough fuel to the engine and the engine does not start.

Ignition Coil

If the chainsaw engine does not start the spark plug may not be getting voltage. Power to the spark plug is provided by the ignition coil. The ignition coil is mounted next to the flywheel. As the flywheel spins an electrical current is induced by the ignition coil. If the ignition coil is defective it will need to be replaced, it is not serviceable.

Rewind Spring

The recoil starter assembly has a rewind spring which spins the pulley backward to rewind the starter rope. If the rewind assembly is broken the rope will not rewind and the engine does not start.

Recoil Starter

If pulling the recoil starter assembly handle doesn't engage with the engine and the engine does not start. Repair or replace the recoil starter assembly.

Recoil Starter Pulley

The recoil starter pulley winds up the starter rope when not in use. If the recoil starter pulley is broken or stuck it may not rewind the rope and the engine does not start.

Engine will not go to high speed fuel oil mist blows out .checked spark arrestor ,muffler,exaust ports.


If the mix is blowing out the muffler than it is flooded either due to improperly adjusted carb, stiff diaghrams in the carb or weak spark. Weak spark could be a bad plug, failing ignition module, or spark ouit of time ( sheared flywheel key).
Bad fuel will also cause this symptom.

87-88 fiero runs but only tops out at about 30 after i get up to speed which takes a good block or two slowly. smokes a little but i think its because it has sat for 6 plus years. any tests i can run or...


I had the same problem, maybe 25MPH top speed and difficult to start. Changed out the old gas, installed fresh high octane-problem was worse.
The ignition system was faulty. Pull a High voltage wire and you should see a bright blue spark and hear a crackling noise. If you see a weak yellow spark, you found your problem.
Could be a bad/weak ignition module-rather famous in a Fiero due to heat exposure. Bad pickup coil in the distributor. I replaced the entire (rusty) distributor with a new/rebuilt unit a long with a new Ignition module. Solved the problem!

What are the symptoms of a bad coil on my Poulan chainsaw? Mine only sparks at high RPM's, as tested with my electic drill motor spinning the engine and grounding the removed spark plug to the engine...


There has to be a reasonable spark at hand cranking speed, with most electronic ignitions they work off speed of rotation so you do need to crank the engine at a fair speed, check the air gap between the flywheel magnet and the ignition core, this should be around 0.3mm, if there is not spark at all when cranked well it will be a replacement unit required.

I tried using quick start on it, but all that did was make it sputter a bit, so I am assuming that the fuel is not reaching the cylinders, anyone have any ideas?


1) Check for spark remove one of the plugs, connect the plug wire to it and ground spark plug base to a good ground , such as the cylinder head , position the plug so you can see the electrodes , crank the engine over , a fat blue spark should be evident. 2)If the spark is good , check for one or more of the following possible malfunctions 1) Obstructed fuel line or filter.2) leaking head gasket(s)3) low compression. If the spark is not good, check one or more of the following a) Weak ignition coil(s) b) Weak CDI unit. c)Loose electrical connections. d) Dirty electrical connections. e)Loose or broken ignition coil ground wire. f) Broken or shorted high tension lead to the spark plug. Difficulty in starting. Check for fouled spark plugs, Improperly adjusted choke, contaminated fuel system, improperly adjusted carburetor,weak ignition unit,weak ignition coil (s), poor compression

My fs55r wont start - got carb kit, new filter and sparkplur what next?


You need to make sure it is getting a nice strong spark. The electronic solid state ignition control module (coil) controls this and the contact legs on it have to be gapped about .010-.012" from the magnets on the flywheel. This goes on under the front engine cover. First, check for a nice blue spark. If it is weak or yellow, the coil needs adjustment. They fail rarely. A standard business card is about the proper thickness to produce the "air-gap" needed to create a a good spark.Also, make sure the plug has the correct gap on it.
If you have to check the coil, the front engine cover will have to be removed and moved forward to access it.Underneath the cover is the starter/recoil unit and under that is the flywheel and the coil. The coil will be attatched to the engine cylinder with a couple Torx screws about size T-15 or T-20.

Car doesn't start


Hi,
Excellent description of your problem, I wish there were more like you!
I would be investigating timing issues? either ignition or cam? could the timing belt have slipped a few teeth? or is there a fault with your cam sensor?
Other than that have you tried a compression test? silly as it seems you may have head gasket issues.
Hope this helped? if so please press that blue button.
