If the maintenance procedure included anything that required you to dis-assemble the air pump then you must simply re-set the pump pressure in order for fuel to be pumped into the combustion chamber. . It's an easy procedure. Instructions for setting the pump pressure

I can ususally get my chainsaw to start fairly easily runs fine for about 3/4 a tank of gas then abruptly shuts down


I'd try a basic maintenance and then see what happens.
- Change spark plug
- Pull fuel filter. Clean or replace.
- Remove air filter, clean or replace.
- Remove muffler. Clean all carbon from spark arrestor screen.
Start and set carb fast, slow, and idle. If you want coaching on the procedure, reply as a COMMENT to this post.
Cheers.

Motor quit put new gas, charged battery, checked oil still does not turn over- prior to this the engine would backfire prior to starting- I have checked connections-


Does not turn over or does not start? Does not turn over usually means a bad battery or starter. Or connections which you have already checked. There may be a fuse block or inline fuse as well. Does it have a manual pull start as well? Does this turn over the engine or is it siezed up, low/no oil.
Turns over but does not fire usually is spark or the fuel. Back firing would guess spark plug or carberator (air fuel mixture) If it turns over but does not fire, try putting in some Seafoam fuel system cleaner. This will get the varnish-gunking stuff out of the carb. Mix in your tank, turn over quite a bit to get it pulled into your carb bowl and into some of the carb port holes. Let it soak a while and then turn over again every so often to pull in new cleaner. If it starts at some point it will stink a little while burning the cleaner in the tank.

Make sure you have check the old fuel lines and and air vacuum lines for pin holes and cracks as well. Change the plugs. Make sure the air filter is clean. Change the fuel filter. Does it fire if you shoot starter fluid in the carb air intake, this would suggest a fuel issue, such as dirty carb, bad fuel line or fuel filter, or fuel pump.

Replaced motor, starting hard. runs fine . how do I check fuel pressure


Doubtful you have a fuel pressure problem if the car runs well, poor starting can be a few things , poor air circulation air filter needs cleaning or replacing, poor injector flow warn injectors or just dirty fuel additive sometimes clears this , poor spark plugs not firing under pressure ok when started . for diesel cars you don't say what car it is , poor glow plugs . bad fuel filter , air leaks in fuel pump , poor injectors . and especially with diesel poor compression due to worn rings or head gasket failure . You may even have just have disturbed the engine earth strap when you replaced your starter motor .

Spark plug will not unite


If this is one of those liquid fuel heaters, change the nozzle, the filter, and clean the pump strainer. Bleed the air out of the fuel line by opening the small nipple (in the fuel line on the side of the pump) while attempting to start it until the fuel comes out clear and not sudsy, then close the nipple if the appliance had run out of fuel prior to you attempting to start it There's no spark plug in it, but a 10,000 volt ignitor.

2002 Blazer will not start. It fires and sounds like it is going to start every time I turn the key, but will not start. Sometimes it sounds like it starts, but dies immediately. (within 1 or 2 second


if you know its getting fuel then lest talk about spark check the spark plug wires and the spark plugs if you got spark see if your getting air check the air filter if its to dirty it wont start beacuse clean air wont come through

My heater is a reddy heater 165,000btu. when i plug it up it will ignite, it will get a flame for about ten seconds and it shutdown. i recently replaced the ignitor because it broke and replace the fuel...


I would definitely stop burning off road diesel as it is dirty.Remove the top section of the heater and clean the fire eye with windex and a terry cloth rag, and run K1 kerosene it burns so much cleaner. Also make sure that fuel is not an issuecheck fuel filter,fuel lines and don't forget the screen in behind the nozzle.

Runs rough at idle when i drive it runs fine until i come to red light then it wants to stall. if it is idling it will stall to just bought it havent did any maintenance yet


Those El Caminos are nice. If you haven't done any maintenance, I would make sure that the oil is full, check and replace any bad carb. vacuum lines, check for any fuel, intake, vacuum, etc. leaks. Maybe check and replace spark plugs, wires, dist. cap + rotor, also check timing, etc. Good luck.

Do you have a pre-start checklist?


Pre-start checklist?

I assume the heater ran fine last season. If so, assume it will run fine this season. Simply remove the top cover, check the combustion chamber area for signs of visitors such as mice, wasps, dirt dobbers, etc. Remove debris.

We always drain the old fuel & start fresh.

Replace the top cover and fire it up. If it runs fine then leave it alone. If it won't continue to run troubleshoot and find the problem.
