Take apart the carb and clean it with carb cleaner. Be careful when you pull off the bowl some of them have springs that are tricky to put back in. Drain all the fuel that was in the tank. Check the plug and make sure it's still good if it hasn't run in 5 years then it's probably still good a visual inspection should tell. After the carb is clean put it back together and it should start right up.

Take Breather element off,and try to start it Then or if it starts that way cut it off and replace the breather and if it doesn't start You May need to change spark plug also, As if You have flooded it, Gasoline will kill a spark plug

Will not autostart sitting in shed for 3 years new. autostart turns over but no combustion or limited combustion in engine how do I choke this engine?


If it was sitting for 3 years, I would do a complete tune up. Oil change, air and oil filters, plugs and put in new gas. Good luck!

Honda Harmony II HRR216 won't start


Check for spark of smell of gas on the plug when you try to start it. That will tell you if it is fuel or ignition

Craftsman LT2000 w/ 18.5 HP B&S engine- will not start-been sitting up for year in shed- new battery- checked fuel flow to carb: OK - checked spark plug: cleaned , seems OK- engine turns over but not...


A 'cranks but doesn't start" problem just needs to be narrowed down to compression,fuel,or ignition.The compression is pretty obvious-does it sound like the stater is getting a load when cranking?The next one is fuel-do you smell raw gas fumes coming out of the exhaust?The last one is spark-take the plug out and clamp it to the block,crank it,do you see a spark? If you have compression and spark,try a shot of starter fluid down the carb.(sometimes the float needle can get stuck,and just getting the engine to fire will shake it loose).If you don't have spark,then look for why(not sure if you have a magneto or ignition coil system).

My car has been sitting for 2 years and won't start. The engine turns over but it sounds like not getting gas. I read somewhere to spray gas starting inside air intake valve. Where is the air intake v


Safer is to use 'carburetor cleaner' which is also flammable but a little less dangerous than using gasoline.After sitting a long time, our modern gasoline gets tired; never allow something to sit so long without adding some 'fuel stabilizer.'If possible with your car, I would drain (siphon) the tired gas out and replace it with a few gallons of fresh.
Really tough starting problems can also be overcome with 'starting fluid' which is pure ether and very flammable.Any of these may require the removal of the engine air filter so the liquid gets into the intake manifold.
Stale gasoline can also gum up the fuel injectors which may have to be removed for service if none of the fluids causes the engine to fire.

The 1990 XJ6 has been sitting for the last 2 years and now won't start. The engine turns over fine. The dash gages don't seem to operate. I filled the gas tank with 5 gallons of premium gas. HELP!!!


I wish I could give you an instant fix, but I can't. Do you have spark? If so then its either your fuel pump or the CPS, crank position sensor. If no spark then it could be your coil.

I have a bored out 281 xp, I just put a carb kit in it but I still cant get it to run properly, at idle or full throttle it sat in a shed for five years but i thought that would help, it didnt


Check if the fuel lines are still intact. More importantly, the introduction of ethanol into the gas supply has caused many issues with small engines, because of its corrosive nature. Sitting five years might have done this saw in with its effect (even if the tank is emptied) on internal parts.

need to check for spark---- magneto [magnet-pulse to coil] may have rust causing failed spark can clean lightly with sandpaper but more than likely u need to clean the carb-buy a rebuild kit about 10 bucks -take off carb tear apart and let soak in parts cleaner use a carb cleaner and spray all the nooks and crannys in carb rebuild replace and try firing up because more than likely the carb is completely gummed up from the old gas

Saw will start. runs a little sluggish at first. then it will smooth out and rev high and run strong for a few minutes then gets sluggish again and dies. will not start again for 5 to 7 minutes minimum....


Being springtime, I'm thinking you may have had your saw sitting all winter with last years gas in it. If so, you'll need to clean the carburator and spark plug real good, then put fresh gas in it. Always remember to run your saw out of gas before putting it away. Gas only stays fresh for a few weeks and will foul up your sparkplug as well as plug up the inside of your carb when it gets stale.
