SOURCE: starts wont stay running

without seeing it here is my best answere, do you have the ability to pull codes if the cam and crank sensors are functioning properly ( no codes for them) i would then check the fuel pump fuse and relay . do you have fuel getting to the fuel rail . if u have a guage to check pressure at the fuel rail it should be above 30lbs , if you have no pressure and your fuses and relays are good then you have a pump problem provided you have not been in an accident , i believe that vehicle has a safety shutoff that might be located in the trunk .

SOURCE: engine will not start on a briggs and stratton log

New carb, new coil, new plug, sometimes it will crank and run good, sometimes it just sputters, and sometimes it will not seem to be firing at all. Before I changed the components listed it would just be intermittent in starting.

SOURCE: log splitter how to flush hydraulic system

removing hydraulic oil from the system

  • fully extend the cylinder. and shutdown.
  • remove the one end of the hose that is from the rod end of the clylinder.
  • two ways you can go here. either: detach the one end of the hose that is attached to directional control valve and leads to the cap end of the cylinder and place the end in a pale then retract the cylinder by physically forcing the rod back in and all the oil will drain out of the cap end into the pale and the rod end will fill with air.
  • or u could hold the directional valve in the position to let the oil flow back to tank while physically forcing the rod back in. the oil in the cap end will drain to tank and rod end will fill with air.
  • drain the tank of oil.
  • if you wanted to be extra thurough remove the remaining lines and drain the oil out of them.
  • reattach all lines.
  • replace oil filters/strainers. should be one on the return line going to tank. and one on the suction line before the pump. But there may not be a second filter.
  • fill tank with new oil.
  • extend the cylinder using the pump. allowing the air to bleed off the rod side. may chatter at bit while extending. if excessive chatter remove line end to allow the air in the rod side to bleed to atmosphere and continue till fully extended.
  • reattach line. probably a good idea to run a couple cycles.
  • and repeat the entire process for a thurogh flushing.
  • ! note: dont be dissconnecting lines with pressure in them or while the system is running.
  • ! note: be sure to have enough oil in the tank so the pump is not sucking air. this will eventually cause unrepairable damage to pump if sucking air for too long.
  • i just wrote this off the top of my head and ive only worked on industrial hyraulic systems and never on a log splitter before so just keep that in mind. hope it helps

Just got a log splitter cantget started motor running it moved and blew fuse

Hi, not much info to go on here, but;

have you ensured that your outlet automatic fuse (if applicable) will handle the current of the electric motor? Check ratings. If motor rating is close to automatic fuse limits, you will need a "slow" type auto fuse or use a larger capasity outlet. This the first thing to check before looking further at the splitter itself, assuming that it is the fuse of your outlet that you blew?.

Was just curious if the 4ton 2hp electric wood splitter was 110 or 220...hopefully 110 as I just ordered it for hubby!

Sorry but I think it will be a 220V motor.
They do not advertise the voltage very well and I had to do some digging to find that the motor pulls 12.5 maps which would make it a 220 v motor. At 110v a 2 Hp motor would be pulling 20 amps or more which would still make it too much for most household circuits.
Running a new line for your splitter should not be a big project for most electrictians... Also if your husband has a gas generator most of them will run that splitter and then it would be portable...! Just load up the generator and the splitter and he can split anywhere...

Robin engine for 27 ton log splitter..starting problems

remove the float bowl from the carburator and clean it out. Either the float is stuck of the needle valve is gummed up. Both the float and needle valve together regulate the fuel allowed into the bowl, if they dont allow fuel in or allow it in fast enough, the engine dies. Also check for a fuel Screen in the fuel tank, it may be plugged up.

Help! Why wont my lawnmower start? I am sorry to keep posting about my blasted lawnmower but quite honestly I am baffled to why I am having so much trouble with it. At the beginning of the season I had fuel seeping through the air filter and on one occasion it nearly caught fire. I took carb off and cleaned it and checked the float and pin and it all seemed to work perfectly find. It still leaked when I put the carb back on, so I had it professionally cleaned and they checked the float and pin and said the same that it was okay. I put it back on the engine and it leaked petrol again. I bought a new carb and put it on and it went like a rocket and I was very pleased. I ran the machine for over two hours no problem at all. Two weeks later I get my mower out and it won't start. It won't even turn over. I went and bought a new spark plug just in case but nope it still won't start. Before you ask, yes I did turn the fuel on and engage the choke, so I am at a loss to know what is wrong with it. I know gas, air and spark are the three ingredients that make an engine work. It has had a new filter, spark plug, gaskets and carb this year and an exhaust last year. Someone mentioned it could be the coil. Is there anyway of finding out if this is the case. It just seems everything is going wrong with this engine at the moment. It is 11 yrs old and has been looked after but I don't understand why it went for over 2 hours and cut beautifully to not turning over at all. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks
