Does it have an oil sentry switch on it? and if it has a fuel primer bulb on the side of the carburator,make sure it's not cracked.

The starter turns the motor over very slowly, but motor will not start.


If the engine is turning over too slow, the engine will not start. Try either charging the battery first or attach a charger while starting. If it is still turning slow, the starter may be drawing too many amps and need to be replaced.

DIFFICULT TO START ENGINE FROM COLD - NO PROBLEM WHEN HOT.


Engine is difficult to start when cold
  1. Check the battery condition, battery state of charge and starter motor current draw. Replace the battery if marginal and the starter motor if the current draw is beyond specification.
  2. Check the battery cable condition. Clean the battery terminals and replace corroded or damaged cables.
  3. Check the fuel system for proper operation. A fuel pump with insufficient fuel pressure or clogged injectors should be replaced.
  4. Check the engine's tune-up status. Note the tune-up specifications and check for items such as severely worn spark plugs; adjust or replace as needed. On vehicles with manually adjusted valve clearances, check for tight valves and adjust to specification.
  5. Check for a failed coolant temperature sensor, and replace if out of specification.
  6. heck the operation of the engine management systems for fuel and ignition; repair or replace failed components as necessary.
Engine is difficult to start when hot
  1. Check the air filter and air intake system. Replace the air filter if it is dirty or contaminated. Check the fresh air intake system for restrictions or blockage.
  2. Check for loose or deteriorated engine grounds and clean, tighten or replace as needed.
  3. Check for needed maintenance. Inspect tune-up and service related items such as spark plugs and engine oil condition, and check the operation of the engine fuel and ignition management system.

Problem cranking first thing in the morning or colder days. Garage says battery and alternator look good. Sometimes it takes up to 5 minutes to start.

Replace the carburetor. It is not fixable, even though you can buy a rebuild kit for it. Been there, done that-- had to learn the hard way. What?? I said to myself. I've been fixing these small engines (shade tree) for years, and we always could rebuild the carb and adjust for peak performance. I absolutely refused to believe that my "rebuild" didn't "fix" this carb. Hard to believe, but true. Replace the carburetor. This is your "something new" you've learned for today.
