Question about Garden

1 Answer

402707 Stalled the other day, wouldn't start, and I couldn't even turn the engine a little by hand. When I turn the ring gear w/ a socket & breaker bar it grabs in places and turns hard while other spots are much freer. We have kept the oil up and do not have any leaks since this incident. I have had it running once- this morning - after freeing it up some with the socket. However, it ran for a 2-3 minutes and just died - no sputtering, just slowed down and died. When I turn the motor with the socket it seems a little harder than right before I started it. We have used this tractor for some time without any hint of engine trouble. Thank you, Tom

Hi
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting fire at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope, if you are getting spark then:
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
NOTE: Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
Make sure you are using fresh fuel.
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 65021 RS lawn mower, > 1 year old will not start

yea i think you scratched the cylinder. if there is not oil at any point then the engine will damage itself. and it wont have good compression. unless you want to attempt to rebuild the engine i would scrap it.

SOURCE: Can't keep mower running without consistently pushing the primer.

It sounds like there is water in the gas. The only way to remedy this is to take the carb off of the gas tank and replace the diaphragm, there is a small reservoir between the tank and carb...clean with WD-40 to remove water

This sounds like you have bent the shaft. This happens when you run over something hard. Hope this will help.

SOURCE: Riding mower engine loud and smoking.

take it to a reputable shop and have them check it over - courage engines had a problem when they first came out - the bolts in the cover plate were not torqued properly and when they come loose, the torque of the engine turning will crack the block - this should be a warranty condition if the block is cracked - just make sure the shop is a kohler warranty station

I have a 99 Ford Superduty 7.3 Diesel. It is making a really bad grinding/screeching sound just after it starts and is warming up. It wouldn't ******* off all the way even after the key was turned


indicates that the starter motor is stuck in the ring gear
possibly faulty starter relay or starter solenoid
pull the starter as the pinion over ride clutch is probably damaged ( noise ) and have the start circuit and relay checked
have the starter bench tested for serviceability by an accredited auto electrician

I started it I put gas and it smelled like a burnt metal smell and I turned off then it wouldn't start. When it finally did start I couldn't shift past 2nd gear. I was already low on oil.


Yup! Running it low on oil can definitely cause a "burnt metal smell". It can also totally destroy the engine before you can ever smell it.

It sounds like something that needs to be checked by a professional auto repair technician to me.

All is possible but it would help to know the make, model, and year. If you suspect ice fouling, try warming with a propane torch using gentle sweeping strokes.

pull off your starter and have it tested at your local auto parts store while cold... you may have a weak solenoid or some corrosion on the starter ring gear shaft.

Car would not start or the engine wouldn?t even turn over.


Try removing spark plugs and turning engine over by hand with socket wrench on harmonic dampner if it spins freely probably not engine problem fluid in cylinders will cause hydro lock indicating blown head gasket or injector stuck wide open. a broken timing belt would still allow engine to turn over as your car should not have an interference engine. If engine will not turn by hand with spark plugs out susspect internal engine damage siezed bearings broken rod and so.
