Why won't my 130BT blower start? the unit won't start replaced the plug, dumped the fuel added 50:1 gasoline still nothing? Sprayed starter fluid in carb still nothing.


I had that same problem. I have not tried fixing lately. Take apart the carburetor and spray it and brush with carb-cleaner. You can try cleaning the fuel filter in the gas tank. Fish it out with your finger or a piece of metal wire. Take it apart and clean it with gasoline, also clean the air filter with soap and water and let it dry. If it still does not start, clean the muffler, where it emits the burnt co2, carbon builds up there over time (there is also a screen there where you can see the brown/black carbon). Try cleaning w the Carburetor cleaner spray and a toothbrush, wire brush or thin flat-head screwdriver and let dry. If that doesn't work, maybe you need to replace the whole muffler part. I think that is what I might do. I'm not using so haven't got around to fixing it. Hope it helps if not maybe a professional can help. Good luck...

have you checked the brushes in the starter or cleaned the commutator? Best to remove the starter and have it bench tested at a local parts store.

1991chevy lumina starts hard, runs sluggish and then dies when put into drive. already replaced computer


Having replaced the computer, best thing you could do now is a complete tune up-new spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, air and fuel filter. Change the oil and check all fluids. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Check if your catalytic converter is blocked or clogged-if bad, they will plug up and stop the car.

Car was running a little sluggish, changed plugs and car ran great for 45 minutes then started running rough. checked ignition module, coil packs. all ok. replaced wires, ran better then started running...


Make sure the HT leads are secure. They might be popping off, causing it to not fire on one cylinder. I always change the plugs and leads at the same time to keep them the same age. HT leads break down rapidly and need regular replacement.

Chainsaw strarts OK but stalls


Most likely fuel "Air" problem.
Old fuel can and will gunk up the air flow jets.
Would suggest cleaning the carb and filters.
Then replace with good fuel mixture and start again. :)
Make sure the choke is set correctly and the air filters are clean.
Had a lawn mower that would NEVER crank correctly after sitting idle for the winter. Had to dis-assembly the carb and clean literally with paper clip and tooth brush. Never once had to change the spark plug or wires. After spring cleaning (LOL) it would usually crank on the 2nd pull.

Good luck!
