    I tried that already but still won't run. I think the carburetor is clogged with the oil.

    Your suggestion would be very helpful if I had a clue as to how to rebuild the carb. However, I'm not mechanically inclined and therefore clueless.

    RINSE THE TANK OUT WITH GAS, THEN ADD FRESH GAS, START THE CHAIN SAW WITH STARTING FLUID TO **** THE REST OF THE OIL THROUGH THE ENGINE, IF IT IS A 2 CYCLE MIX THE FUEL ACCORDING TO MANUFACTURER SPECS.

With apprila Rs 125cc 2 strokes bike. I fill up with 98 octane unleaded and I poured 2 strokes oil Into petrol tank. is it possible can damage the engine?. at the moment I couldnt start the engine.


well you cant damage it by doing that but if you put too much n and didnt shake it well it will settle at the bottom of the fuel tank and fill the carburettor up with oil as oil is heavier than petrol.why are you not using the oil tank and oil pump fitted to the bike ?best thing to do is put a new spark plug in it turn the fuel tap off roci the bike bacwards and firwards to mix the oil and fuel in the tank,and drain the carburettor by undoing the 14mm nut in the centre of the bottom of the carb,then turn the fuel back on and try and start it up.

Starts but won t keep running


Probably not. Once the oil passages inside the engine get plugged up the block has to be hot-tanked to get them cleaned out. Thats after the engine is disassembled.
You can try an engine flush or two, but I would not expect much.
You may not be getting power to the fuel pump if oil pressure is low.

When you start engine you have to give it gas or it won't start


replace your fuel & air filters, add some fuel injector cleaner to gas tank, todays fuel w/ ethanol is hurting your engine, change your oil also.

Honda GX160 firepump runs good than dies starts first pull after and repeats


Check that the fuel tank is venting properly, sounds as though the tank is not venting therefore creating a vacuum that the carburetor cannot over come. Try running the engine with the fuel cap loose to see if that alows the engine to continue to run.

Accidentally put mixed gas and tried to start. Blew white smoke after starting but wouldn't run. Drained tank and put premium back in now won't even start.


There will still be some fuel mix in your fuel lines and filter. Also it probably fouled your spark plug. Try changing the spark plug first, and probably buy an extra one or two to keep in case. Also either replace the fuel filter or clean it out good, oil will stick to the elements in the filter. It won't hurt anything to run a mix in a gasoline engine, just lubed things up a little extra. Let me know if you need anything else, Daniel.

I have a Toro 4 cycle gas trimmer that won't stay running. Starts, then sputters, then dies. I've changed the oil, drained fuel & put in new fuel.


check to make sure the air filter and the fuel screen are clean, the screen is the little white plastic piece on the end of the hose in the tank. if it is still sputtering try cleaning the bell out on the carb. it is the little metal cylinder on the bottom of the carb where it holds the fuel until it evaporates into the engine if it gets clogged the engine will not run properly.

'79 Chevy van has been in storage for five years. How do I get it running again?


Start by cleaning the fuel tank (water from condensation accumulates in it), clean the fuel lines, clean and adjust the carburettor, drain the old oil, remove the sparkplugs,put some fine oil in the cylinders and crank the engine manually, put new oil,oil filter,sparkplugs,distributor cap and air filter, replace the water and start the engine. Check for leaks, run the engine for an hour followed by an oil engine cleaner.
