Starting problem with a Ryobi rlt30ces petrol strimmer

Hi, I recently purchased the above product from Ebay and am having problems starting it. I believe I may have put too much oil in the mix.

I have emptied the tank and put a lighter mixture in and took out the spark plug and turned it upside down and pulled the starter to clear any excess and tried everythin else but it still won't start

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks
Ian

Hi
I have had the similar problem & spent a day stripping the unit down
(dismantled & re-assembled the carb, seemed OK fuel reaching & flooding the plug) I unscrewed the spark plug from the body, but left it connected to the lead and found that there was intermittent spark when pulling the cord. and tested it with a continuity meter - no signal/measurement. bought a new spark plug, meter reading showed signal/measurement, now starts every time. It may be that Ryobi has been installing rather cheap nasty plugs. So test the plug first by watching the spark when pulling cord, test with a meter, if no continuity, buy new plug....


Check also that little gauze air filter behind the roto choke is not blocked.
this solved it for me.

Please remember to give me a rating ...ta

    Excellent service! I just did my strimmer after months of not starting at all. Cleaned the filter, reset the spark gap to a little over 15 thou. ( .40mm) and Hey ho! off we go. Thanks a bundle!!!

Reset the spark plug gap, mine was at 25 thou, I reduced it to about 15 thou, and it starts every time, hot or cold.

I just purchased a new Hasqvarna 130BT. Took it out of the box, I believe I followed all the directions. But it won't start. Checked the plug, fuel (Using the Hasqvarna pre mix. 50:1). I need help


We had user @ AnswerArmy that recently purchased a 150 BT that had the choke label put on backwards. Check this as this maybe your problem and you are simply not choking it.

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

I have an old craftsman snowblower. It is a pullstart. I inherited this from my father. He did not have the manual.. wondering if I could find how much gas to oil mix and if it is a 2 cycle or 4 cycle...


The way to tell if it's 2 or 4 stroke is, if it has seperate tanks for the oil and petrol then it would be 4 stroke. I know that's not entirely true in today's world but up to recently it was. If it's 2 stroke then you need to mix the petrol with 2 stroke oil. Unless someone knows the right mix ratio I would start off with a rich mixture of 25:1 and see how it goes. If it's giving off a lot of smoke I'd reduce the oil a little to 30:1. It should be ok with this ratio. Use good quality 2 stroke oil e.g. Husqvarna or Stihl as some of the cheaper oils available at car service stations are not as good at protecting machinery.

How much oil does a yamaha yzf r1 2007 take


"most" bikes on average without filter change take anywhere from 2.8 to 3.0 qts. I always purchase 4 quarts because an extra one will always come in handy in the future anyway. First your bike i believe has a sight gauge... First stand the bike upright on a stand or have someone hold it up for you pour in 2 and 1/2 quarts, put fill cap on, start bike, let warm up for about a minute to let the oil settle, then turn off and then start pouring in slowly till it gets to a little above 3/4 full on the sight gauge...you never want to overfill it could cause engine damage. Now just remember how much oil you put in and that is the approx. amount.

Hi There, I'd recomend using Stihl Two Stroke Oil. Mix it at 50:1. Its the best stuff you can get. Never let me down yet, used in all my chainsaws and strimmers.

My homelite yardbroom 2 won't start. Maybe wrong gas/oil mix


Hi
If you remove the fuel you believe to be the mixture out of the fuel tank and refuel with the correct mixture then remove the air filter. Put a few drops of the correct mixture in to the intake it should start. it may take a few times of repetting putting the fuel in to the intake, but eventually it will clean out the bad fuel and run good.Remember to replace the air filter!

Rough idle / varying oil pressure when accelerating


Ok not to keen on newer vehicles actually prefer the carburated ones, but oil pressure is supposed increase on your gauge when accelerating. If it wasn't going up before and just staying at 40 the needle might have been stuck. But idle should be 40 lbs and when you work the moter (reving or driving down the road) the guage should show an increase for every 1000 rpm above idle. Second if you can get a hand held scanner (bought mine off ebay for $30) check for any codes in your computer you will probably find that you either have a bank running wrong or some other sensor that needs to be changed. I'd go with getting my own scanner it saves alot of money and time, garages make their money here.
