SOUNDS LIKE A CLOGGED FUEL FILTER. MAY HAVE INLINE FILTER, OR ITS IN TANK. TANK MAY NEED TO BE CLEANED IF IT IS THE FILTER, RUST BUILD UP FROM WATER IN GAS WILL RUST INSIDE OF TANK AS IT SEPERATES FROM GAS AND SITS AT THE BOTTOM.

Isuzu rodeo 2000 2.2L sat for years, ran fine when I parked it, won't start, turns over,. and runs w/starting fluid. I can't hear the fuel pump but I don't think it would go bad just sitting. It could be...


The fuel pump maybe frozen up on it . The gas can gel and go bad and ruin a fuel pump .if you have voltage at the connector for the fuel pump and you don't hear it . You would have to drop the tank and clean it out completely and check the fuel pump or just replace it . either way it is a somewhat big job depending on how much fuel is inside the tank . if you have a drain hole plug at the bottom i would drain the old gas first . most models don't have one . I would also replace the fuel filter as it would be clogged im sure too .

My 05 6.0 quit going down the road and wont start back up. I have replaced fuel pump and filters, cam sensor and tested ficm. what d I check from here? I have no smoke coming out the exhaust


check rail pressure while cranking. truck needs minimum of 550 pounds to start. If you do not have it will not run. You may need a fuel pressure regulator. Ford offers a screen seal kit the regulator and you can try cleaning and replacing. Takes only a grain of debree to hold regulator op and truck wont run

My 23 hp kohler courage engine starts and runs for several seconds and stops. The gas is fresh, new plugs.gas filter. Fuel pump is working.The thing ran fine two weeks ago. Thanks, Mike


it sounds like the jet is dirty in the carburetor. Remove the float bowl and in the center there should be a jet that you can remove and clean. There are small holes on the side of it which you can clean with a thin piece of wire. Clean the center hole also.

3 weeks ago I had my coleman 5000 generator in to be fixed. The man flushed the gas tank, replaced the carb, did a tune up,changed the spark plug, and did an oil change. When I went out to start it a few...


You got spark & compression
The air filter is not an issue
You got clean fuel
You got oil and the machine is not freezing
Sounds like the exhaust port is open and free

Fuel is the only suspect remaining

Pull off the fuel line and see if gas flows to carburetor.
Pull off gas filter and see if gas flows free
Try some gum out

Now here's something we discovered.
Our machine wouldn't run on full throttle.
We had to set it at half throttle, and it ran like a top for years.

Try messing with the throttle settings to find a setting that works.
Finally, if none of the above work, it must be the carburetor.

Briggs and stratton 11hp generator giving spark and new fuel pull start but just wont kick over any tips


how long has it been since it last ran? I had a similar problem with mine so I put clean fuel in it with a mixture of sea foam gas treatment. Used a shot of starting fluid to get started and let it run for an hour or so. Just started it again yesterday with no problems. The fuel in carburetor is most likely old and needs to be gotten out of. If you try this and get it started let it run in half choke position for a few minutes so old fuel will get out of caburetor. Good Luck

Yamaha 6600de generator dies 3 seconds after starting


When you pull the bowl off of your carb is it clean? If not you have some contamination possibly inside. You might want to remove the carb and blow compressed air through all the vents a ports.

8 HP Briggs won't run.


Hi First check compression.Turn the switch on OFF position.Remove the sparkplug.Put your thumb at the sparkplug hole and opperate the starter.If the compression preassure blows your thumb off the hole the compression is adequate for the engine to run.In your situation if the generator has good compression there is a fuel delivery problem to find and fix.Check and clean the carb,fuel lines,fuel filter,gas cap tank vent(not to be clogged),check the air filter.If you need any other suggestions feel free to ask.Merry Christmas! regards savumihai71
