Did you check spark right when it died on the lake ? If so you have a bad electronic module ,If you didnt when you get it started again do this,I have had one or two that had a problem with the on off switch ,but its rare.

It will not start acts like it not getting any spark


is it just turning over. Take the #1 spark plug wire off and just let it sit about a 1/2 inch from tip of spark plug. don't hold it. have someone turn engine over. this is to see if u r getting spark. your module may be gone.which will let it keep turning over and not start.

My '99 Eldorado will start-up O.K. and you can


It does sound like some of the engine cylinders are filling up with water (hydro-locking). Head gasket issues are common with these engines. The no.1 cause of it is from not using the coolant pellets suggested by mfr. Green antifreeze is too strong for the aluminum engine and slowly eats away at the gasket seals.

My refrigerator stopped cooling/freezing.


Hi,
You can start with replacing the start capacitor and relay to see if the compressor will run again, but you have about a 50 -50 chance that the compressor has gone bad and will need to be replaced....

I have a 20 hp craftsman lawn( hydro gear transaxle ) tractor in terrific shape that losses drive on a grade. I replaced the worn drive belt and it was good for the first few mows, Now Im right back to...


It sounds like the oil in transaxle is degraded.The transaxle is supposed to be a sealed unit requiring no service but over time the oil will get dirty enough to cause problems like you are describing.Remove the back hitch plate and look at the transaxle it will have a rubber vent hose or a 1/4 alllen wrench fitting on top. You will need to purchase a battery suction bulb from sears automotive and use it to remove as much oil from transaxle as possible. Warm the transaxle up first by running it around,then suction the oil out.Refill with a good synthetic motor oil 15w-50 or 20w-50 like Amsoil or Mobil 1.Do not use transmission fluid or hydraulic fluid. When adding the new oil back fill it to within 1.5 in from the top,be sure to allow this amount of air space in top of transaxle for expansion.

91 BUICK REGAL - NO SPARK


The cam sensor is most likely the cause.
The sensor is getting hot and shorting out intermitantly. I would have the vehicle check by your local mechanic.

Husqvarna 400 e series- I mixed the fuel 40-1 instead of 50-1


Hi
If you have good compression and spark at the spark plug try priming the engine(put some fuel mixture in the spark plug hole),set the carb adjustment(highh speed H=3/4 turn and lowspeed L=1 1/4 turn,turn the scews clockwise until the end and then set them.Try to start the engine.If it runs only the gas you puted inside the cilinder and then stops you have a fuel delivery problem to find and fix.First disassembly ,check and clean the carb.Then the fuel filter and the hoses.Let me know. best regards savumihai71
