SOURCE: 944 cuts off after 5 min.

Sounds like fuel relay located in fuse/relay box. This is a common problem on the 944, always good idea to carry a spare.

SOURCE: My troy-Bilt 5550 watt generator will not start

First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

SOURCE: wont start, not getting fuel, checked lines,carb and used starter fluid, runs but won't continue to run

You may need to do a more detailed cleaning on the carburetor. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to get into the small ports. They work great for this job. You may also need to check the small screen in carb. It gets blocked with debris.If you need further assistance, please contact me.

SOURCE: truck wont start

This is a common concern with this year model Ford diesel. There are several things to make the truck not start. There is a high-pressure oil sensor on the rear of the passenger side valve cover that if it fails won't let your engine start, there is a cam sensor on the front of the engine that if fails won't let your engine fire. Check all of your fuses and check the injector control module relay in the fuse panel under the hood. There are others that are best handled by ford, there is another high-pressure oil sensor down in the engine valley beneath the intake, the high-volume oil pump could of gone out, a high pressure oil line that if leaks won't let your truck start. the injector control module that if fails the replacement must be programmed to your trucks computer. Ford has a computer specifically designed to work on these trucks and they should beable to check your pump by looking at the oil pressures as it turns over. You can change the cam and the oil sensor on the valve cover yourself but they are expensive around $150.00 a piece and that may not fix it. I recommend taking it to the dealer and letting them looking at it. I know first hand that just throwing parts at it hoping to fix it can get expensive. Hope I was able to help you and answer your questions.

I took de oil filter out i connected direct tube i start de it didnt start

Check de-compression lever. Motor will not start if de-compression lever is operated. The lever stops the valves from closing. If lever is operated then there will be no compression when motor is pulled over with starter cord or electric starter operated.

Check fuel cut off at injector pump is not operated. This is how motor is normally stopped.

There must be no air in the fuel line, fuel filter, injector jump or injector. Undo the fuel line at the injector and pull starter or operate electric starter. Fuel should spit out. If not, crank some more until fuel comes through.

if there is fuel in the tank, filter not blocked and injector pump working then if not fuel at injector then maybe injector pump faulty.

If fuel at injector line then remove injector, crank motor and look for spray of fuel.

If if you have checked for spray of fuel and motor compression then motor should start.

Asked about my generator the other day it was in the shed for quite awhile took it out and tried to start it but would not start what should I do?

does it have a choke setting on the throttle may need to run with choke until warm. Also check fuel line for tap as tap may be in off for fuel. check if any kill switch as may be active. may need to change the fuel in the fuel tank as fuel goes off over a period of time.

Have a Honda EM5000S generator issue. Will start easily, run for a few seconds, then cut off. Problem just started. Checked spark plug, air filter, fuel line. All fine. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I sounds like it might be the low oil shut off. it has a bypass that allows it to start but then cuts off after a few seconds. even if the oil is fine the sensor may be bad.

Generator wont start, sparks, fuel is fresh, flushed fuel line

Remove the ouptu line and try, if there is a higher load or short it can stay cut off. Also check the oil pressure switch and the oil condition. If the pressure is bad the engine may not start.
Finally make sure that there is no flooding within the cyclinder. Remove plug and flush out excess fuel , check gap, the spark and then replace.

Won't start, checked spark plug, turned engine switch on, checked fuel line.

make sure unit has oil.some of them have low oil switch which will not let it run or start usually if it has triggered the low oil switch to open you have to reset it manually by pushing it in.also check that you have turned on the fuel .

Generator starts up and then cuts out after 7-10 seconds. The cut out appears to be from a "shut down" switch as opposed to carburetor oriented (it's natural gas).

I don't recall, does your generator have oil monitoring, did you say you checked the oil. If it's a protection shutdown there may actually be an oil change timer as well.
