SOURCE: fuel pump

Can you hear the pump when you turn the key on normally? When the pump on my old FJ starts up with the key, it makes enough racket to let you know. Your bike is alot smarter than mine, it might be able to tell that the lines are unhooked and preventing the pump from working as a safety thing. Is the fuel line made of or contain any metal? It may need to see continuity in the fuel system to allow the pump to operate. Or some other parameter is not being met with the lines disconnected. Have you tried thumbing the starter with the lines off? The bike might only pressurize the system when the engine is starting or running.... actually, this is my best guess now that I think of it.

SOURCE: engine turns over fine , car will not start.

well the first part of your question i was all ready to tell you to put a new fuel pump in, now not so sure, there is a relay for fuel pump, can you hear pump cycle and relay click? relay under hood you will have to listen close they don't run long maybe a couple secounds, if you don't relay bad. if you do pump could be bad, do fuel pressure test pump could be weak. don't think sunroof and turn signals are related, but stranger things have happend.

17 hp briggs stratton ohc


Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

How do you remove the starter on Briggs & stratton V-twin 23 hp


You may need to remove the engine top cover to get at it maybe not...It is attached at the top of your engine where the fly wheel and fan are located..it spins the flywheel..if your engine is vertical it will be vertical if horizontal likewise.it normally has only two mounting bolts and a small wire or two..just remember where the small ones go..pretty much a easy job make sure you disconnect the battery or you will get sparks at the starter...good luck

Have a 23 Vanguard on a mud boat and when engine damp from dew or fog, engine turns over but will not start. When engine dries, starts right up.


Your coil may be getting damp or wet..try using a plastic bag over the coil..or use some spray that will keep the damness out..good luck..

It sounds like your valves are out of adjustment. Your starter will bog down if it is out of adjustment and stop at the compression release.
So just take your valve covers off and set your valve lash to
.006 intake
.008 exhaust

Starting problem after setting for ten days or more


Take the spark plugs out when this occurs and try to pull it through--does it expel fuel or oil? This should tell you whether you have a flooding fuel problem, or maybe the crankcase is overfull of oil causing it to leak into the combustion chamber through worn valve seals or piston rings. Hope this helps!

Engine won't start unless you us starting fluid then it runs fine


Starting fluid is REALLY bad on this engine.

Try WD 40 before ever using starting fluid.

Time to change the plugs. and look at the choke for proper adjustment,

Next start using a fuel inhibitor along with some gas treatment with your fuel, this should clear this little V Twin up.

This motor has a history of bending push rods, make sure you change your oil every 30 hours.

Hope some of the tips help.

Our Vanguard 14 hp was idling and stopped. It


If this engine has been sitting for awhile I would guess the carb. is gummed up and need a good cleaning. First thing I would do is try a fresh spark plug. Just because the plug looks good doesn't mean it is. If you have a fuel filter check this also. If it is getting fuel into the carb and has spark and compression I would remove the carb and clean it.

Hope this helps
