If you didn't mix any oil with the fuel,you probally burnt the piston and cylinder up.the only to find out if you did is to pull the muffler off and look inside the cylinder and see if there are any scoring on the piston.if there is you need to replace the piston and cylinder assembly.most cost $100.00 or more.usually they are not worth repairing.i know this is not good news but i hope this helped,let me know.................

Pls HELP What gas/oil mixture for homelite 2006 UT20026 & 1999 UT20724 both r Straight shaft Weed eaters, Sam


Just buy and use a good multi-mix oil. I have been both using and selling a Pro-mix that when mixed with fuel can be use any 2 cycle 16-1 to 50-1 mixes. Saves a lot time hunting for different mix containers. Other than it is 40-1.

Lost manual does this weed eater take regular gas or is it a mix


Want to give us a hint as to what kind of weed Eater this is? Most gas models use a mixture but the ratio can vary between manufacturers.

Poulan prolink pp335 wont start


In case anyone else hits this question, I had this weed eater and all of the attachments. I had it in my garage for a good 7 years, and it had gas in it 7 years ago.. I've known for some time that it now had no gas in it & that it wouldn't be easy to start if it worked at all.. I put some normal gas in it and dripped a bit of oil into the gas because i didn't have a can properly mixed and didn't want to oil up my lawn mower gas.. I had a guy cutting my lawn for the past 7 years but he recently disappeared..

I primed the weed eater and attempted to start it for a good 20 minutes yesterday to no joy.. I put it away and figured i'd try it again and more in depth today when I had more time. I wanted to take the spark plug out and make sure it was clean, etc.

On attempting to remove the spark plug, I couldn't find a wrench or socket that would work to do so, so I just reconnected spark plug cable and figured I'd give the pull start method another try.. I pumped more gas into the primer and attempted to start it normally a few times.. It wouldn't even attempt to fire. Just for fun since I was going to have to throw this and tons of never-been-opened attachments away, i decided to try something goofy (in my opinion) and squeezed the trigger as far as it would go (which disengages the choke feature..) and gave it a few pulls on the cord.. It attempted to fire a few times, then it fired! It worked very well although it was a little bit thick on the smoke for a bit..

Maybe this answer will help someone else who hits the problem of leaving gas in a weed eater for years.. don't use the choke feature to start it.. start it at full throttle with the primer perhaps flooded a little bit..

What is the gas to oil ratio for weed eaters?


Most gas weed eaters use 2-cycle engines. For the Homelite 2-cycle engine trimmers, use a 50:1 ratio of gasoline to the Homelite lubricant. (For 1 gallon of gas, add 2.6 oz of the oil.)

Many Homelite tool manuals are available here: http://www.homelite.com/service_support/product_owners_manuals . Scroll down to find your string trimmer.

I hope this helps.

What ratio of oil and gas do I mix together? How do you start it? I bought the weed eater used.


If you bought it used, you can bet that they didn't run it out of fuel before they stored it, so the gas evapoated out of the carb and all that was left was oil, so mix your fuel 8 to one eight parts gas and one part oil, you'll have to hit the primer botton several times.

What is the gas and fuel mixture for a homelite st-185 weed eater


If it's not been started for that long, ensure that any remaining crud in the tank and fuel lines is cleaned out before even attempting to start it.

Put in a NEW plug, then mix up some 50:1 mix of unleaded and good synthetic 2-stroke oil (Sthil or similar). This will produce an almost smoke-free exhaust, and won't foul the plug.

If it does start, be prepared for LOTS of smoke initially, as all the old oil from inside the engine burns off.

Do you use mixed gas for a ryobi weed eater??


Unless it has a tag or decal on it saying it is a 4 cycle then it uses mixed gas/oil at about a 50:1 ratio. Straight gasoline will freeze the piston in the cylinder in mere minutes.
