My l100 wont start but when i put gas in carborator it runs till gas is gone

Not 100% sure but the fuel is either blocked or the line may have a tap that is turned off. Check to see if you have an in line tap that turns 90 degrees, the ears of the tap should be inline with the fuel line, also check to see if the fuel line is pinched or if it was sucked of fuel causing it to collapse. Hope this helps

We have spark and gas but still won't start

you need to take the carb off and give it a full cleaning not just drop the bowl.

On homelite string trimmer prime bulb does not pop back up

this is an indication that there a gas blockage in either the fuel lines or the carborator. try taking fuel lines off of gas tank, which might require you to take off any protective coverings(just remember how they came off to put them back on the same way) .blow on each line separatly while holding throttle open on carborator. hopefully you'll feel the blockage being freed up. in any case put the lines back on and see if that does the trick. good luck!

My 1992 dodge dakota wont run. i will start it but i will have to feather the gas to keep it alive. it has over a half a tank of gas in it can you help me?

when was this vehicle as serviced?
this could one of several issues.

1 the idle jet on the carborator maybe dirty so the engine is not getting enough fuel at tickover to keep running.
2 the fuel filter is blocking up and may need replacment.
3. the carborator may need an overhaul as the float chamber is not activating correctly.
4. fuel cap may be blocked give a run with the fuel cap off see if that helps. if you get aload hiss each time you fill up that indiates a blocked fuel cap which will need clearing or replacing.
5. dirt in the fuel line if filled from jerry cans contaminents can get in th tank and block the line. when you put pressure on the gas this causes higher vacum from the pump and hides the problem.
6 airfilter may be blocking and needs replacement so there is not enough air at ldle.
7 check plugs if they are sooty or covered in white then the mix is wrong and needs resetting. or indicats reduced fuel or air to engine.
8. plugs may need replacement.

I have an 88 ford broncco 2 eddie bower edition and i have replaved both fuel pumps and it still wont start unless you pour gas into the carborator then when the gas in the carborator runs out it dies

you may have a gold coloured filter that screws into your carb. Unscrew it and check to see if you can blow through it. It may be clogged. Also you can check for fuel at carb by loosening the fuel line going into the carb. Crank engine after loose. Should have gas coming from it.

Hey BK, Its still the carburetor!.... take it to a qualified professional.. there are TOO many tiny passages and jets that must be perfectly clean for a small engine to run properly..
