    Does it have spark to the plug? Does the cylinder seem to have compression? If you spray a small amount of starter fluid into the throat of the carburator ,does it attempt to start then?

You dont need a manual. you need competent troubleshooting knowledge.

do you have an ignition spark? if you do then it will fire up on WD40 or StartingFluid sprayed in the opened carb. if it does and you have a clean fuel supply flow. clean the carb paths.

If no ignition spark present, check wiring, meter the coil for possible open circuit,

My craftsman weedwacker 27cc curved shaft wont start and cant figure it out

I need to ask. Did you leave fuel mix in it for a long time? If so then the carburetor will need to be cleaned with a special cleaner. and not the spray can stuff.

You need to first determine whether the problem is fuel or electrical. Remove the sparkplug and pour in a small quantity of gas. Replace sparkplug and high tension lead. Crank it over. If it does start and run a bit then your problem is fuel and not electrical. If it does not fire and the sparkplug is wet, then start be replacing the sparkplug with a new one.

92 vw passat 2.0 16v wont start.

I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

How do I replace fuel pump 1978 Chevrolet ck10, 350 V8

The fuel pump is on the lower front passenger side of the engine. Place a small container under the pump and remove the fuel lines. They ae on there with hose clamps. Then remove the 2 bolts on the upper part of the fuel pump housing (7/16, I believe) and the pump will slide out of the motor. You may find a rod sliding out behind it. Don't lose it. Clean the old gasket off the block with a scraper or razor blade.
The bolts should hold the new gasket on the back of the new fuel pump. Put the rod back in, if it fell out, and hold it in place with a bent screwdriver until you get the plunger arm of the fuel pump against it. Slowly bring the fuel pump back up into position, keeping pressure on the rod and start the bolts. Keep the pump tight at all times or it can slide off the rod and you'll have to start over. Once the pump is tightened up on the block, re-install the gas lines and clamp them.
Start the engine. You should only have to start it 2 or 3 times before it picks up fuel and keeps running. If not then you'll have to take it back off and re-position the pump on the plunger rod.
Before you re-assemble, make sure the plunger on the new fuel pump is the same length as the old one. GM used 2 different length plingers on the fuel pump and they can't be interchanged. Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 crf 230f the battery has juice I put in a brand new sparkplug its getting fuel full tank of gas w gas on messed with choke but wont start Help please

remove fuel line from carbi and turn the fuel **** on to see if fuel is getting through. if you have fuel at that point check to see if you have spark at the plug, if there is no spark you may have a coil problem

My nieghber gave me a 14 inch poulan saw .but wont start.told me he started to have trouble with it and doest has the time to repaire it uses his other.i put a new sparkplug and still nothing.clean...

firstly, the answer re fuel going up the line is YES!

It sounds like a lack of compression. Take out sparkplug and place finger over cavity whilst pulling starter cord. The pressure should be strong enough to push your finger off the hole. If not, then the rings are shot or there is a hole in the top of the piston.

This will cause poor run in the fuel line to the carburetor. so the carbi is possibly empty or not full enough. Check the float level or that the float, actually floats. It sounds that that float is OK as its not flooding, but take a look anyway it may be jammed shut.
Lastly.. check the spark lead where it goes inside the body as this screws onto a screw to make contact with the inside of the leed. Get a new leed as these carbon based leeds fail after a short time anyway.

Presumne you checked it was actually sparking well?
These are the things that commonly affect chain saws and brush cutters

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Check the oil hole filler and see if the oil has fuel in it. This is a good indication of poor rings and holes in psiton

Will not run

You might want to look at the fuel pump and check your fuel filter and fuel lines and flush the tank.

Weedeater XT 85T wont run

Check to see if your feul line is cracked or it is drawing air . Check your clamps that hold the lines on . One other thing you can check is to see if any bolts are loose that hold the carb on . Best of luck Ed.

Crafsman gas blower: fuel lines to primer bulb had to be reconnected; now blower won't fire at all. Replaced plug and made sure it sparked; still nothing when I try to start.


Priming the engine(put some gas in the sparkplug hole ,after you have checked the sparkplug,the colour of the spark has to be violet).Start the engine.If it starts there is a carburation problem,change the fuel lines to primer bulb.

wish you good luck savumihai71
