    check there is a spark in the plug?
    check gas coming out into cylinder by removing plug.

    maybe the carb is blocked or diaphragm got holes in it. try disassembling and cleaning carbs, just be careful of the jet needles on disassembly.

Check the start stop switch, sometimes they can get dirty causing the saw not to get spark. Also maybe check Your air cleaner. if it's clogged it may be flooding itself out?

My 2000 Chrysler 300m wont start it turns over but wont fire its getting gas but wont fire


Are you certain it's getting gas, does it smell flooded?
Pull one of the plugs, see if its wet after cranking.
Ground plug and check for spark, if no spark, problem could be crank sensor or coil packs.

Poulan wood shark 1950 wont start spark plug has


Try to squirt a little gas in the carb and see if it pops or tries to run for a short time. The diaphram in the carb is probably old and hard. That would be the first place I would look.

Wont start


Start with emptying the gas tank totally. Refill with fresh gas/oil mix. Todays gasoline ain't that great.
Also after putting in fresh gas and priming if it doesn't fire at all pull the spark plug and if it is dry, pour a about a tbsp. of mix gas in the plug hole. put the spark plug back in and see if it will fire.
