SOURCE: kawasaki bayou 4x4 using engine oil alot of smoke from exhaust

if it is using oil, then u got stuck rings, which keep running the bike and keep a eye on the oil, or you need the top end rebuilt.

Sounds like your running a bit rich. Try leaning down your air/fuel ratio.

You are not going to know for sure until you take it apart. If you are lucky it will just be the head gasket.

HELLO;Im assumeing that both have several hours on them,if so it possibly could be your rings and or the fuel mix your useing. Try and reajust your carbs.

SOURCE: I have a Ski doo 583 RAVE motor theat backfires

It sounds like you have a reed problem they should be in a "cage" just behind the carbs on the cylinder and if they were missing a piece or if they were cracked it would cause the engine to backfire. If they are in good condition they should close against the cage and stop the back pressure coming through the carbs.

SOURCE: have toro s-620 snow blower just rebuilt carb

I just saw on another site to start it, and lower the handle to the ground and then straight up in the air to move fuel that has leaked from the carb out of the crankcase. I'm going to try this too as I am having the same problem. Good Luck!!-Nancy

Snow blower 1 year old, was using it ran out of gas , put in new gas, went to start, it ran for few seconds then dies,, prime it it runs few seconds dies, has NEW gas ans new plug, only runs for seconds...


If it has a fuel filter on it change it and that should get you going again. If not the dirt that was in the tank is prob in the carb cleaning the fuel bowl and jets should get you up to par. Hope that helps

I have an old (10-15 yrs) Craftsman Snowblower, equipped with a Tecumseh Snow King 4 cycle, 5 hp engine that hasn't run in over three years due to having been stored. I emptied the tank and put in fresh...


You are on the right track. Do check the air cleaner, and also check your oil level and condition. If the oil's been in there for 3 years, I'd change it.
Also pull the carb off the motor, and get a spray can of carb spray cleaner and clean the bowl, needle valve, around the float, and in any ports, jets, etc.
Drain a bit of the gas out and check to make sure you've got gas flowing, that it's clean and not blocked.Look in the carb bowl...make sure it's not full of sediment, water etc... Spray all the carb linkage and make sure it's all working freely.
While you're at it, use the spray cleaner to spray off the tip of the spark plug, and use some fine sandpaper to clean up the electrode. Then pull the motor thru with the spark plug out , but still attached to the spark plug wire and check for spark. If no spark, replace with a new one. If it's an older style ignition, it may even have contact points that youll need to clean and regap..

Cant get my snowmobile started


you need to remove the old gas and replace

drain gas line if you can get to the carbs use starting fluid
( remove spark plugs and observe also clean with gas and wire brush

also while you have the plug out put the metal side of the spark plug (where you woud turn with a wrench) and turn over with ignition switch
to make sure u are getting a spark

good luck and happy snow mobileing

My poulan snow blower keeps breaking sheer pins in the wheels,


1)try replacing them with a heavy duty "roll-pin"
these are available from auto parts stores.
two types are available.
first is the "single-roll",second is the"multi-rolled"with many layers to it.

try both they're cheap.

2)try not hitting things with the blades
3)dont force the machine in heavy wet ,or frozen icy packed snow.
