My TaoTao ATM-50 49cc scooter wont start.

Recently my carb had a broken part and it was leaking gasoline. Soon after I fixed the leak it stopped working. So i replaced the carb and now it still wont start. I checked spark and it had a spark, I checked air and even took off intake hose. I tried to see with bag if fuel line has suction and if gas gets to the carb. I have checked the vavle setting and reset it to factory setting. I have noticed that it used to turn and spark but would not run, now after all the trial it just sounds like it sparks but wont turn, due to weak battery. I have tried kick starting many times and still nothing happens. plz help!!!! My scooter does have a electric start and kill switch. And i have started it with kickstand down before.

    Currently charging battery back to full, and I checked fuel line filter which had way to little gasoline in it so I flooded it a little more so it can suck fuel better. After battery is done charging I will try to start it. If it doesnt work I will try another compression test. IDK what else to do this is my only transport.

    fixed it myself, was due to to much air in fuel line.

SOURCE: 1998 Honda Goldwing will not start nothing.

Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

TaoTao 50 will not idle


Hi, Misty you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the choke off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air-fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air-fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air-fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air-fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from the bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

My 2012 Taotao 49cc scooter was spitting and sputtering then just died one day. I brought to a small engine repair person and come to find out, the hoses that came off the carb had cracks in them. Changed the hoses and the problem went away. Hope this helps.. I have since replaced the cheap hoses with new ones from the auto parts store and never had the problem again.

There a hose coming from the carb and i dont see where to conect it at. and it leaks gas if u start it. the hose is labled as the number 5 loacation.


Hi, Jadkinsll it may be a vent or overflow hose that is not supposed to be connected to anything just hangs straight down past the frame for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.
