IT STARTS BUT DIES AFTER ABOUT 5 SECONDS

THE SAW WAS BOUGHT NEW ABOUT 4 MONTHS AGO. I FOLLOWED DIRECTIONS FOR STARTING BUT AFTER IT STARTS IT DIES QUICKLY. THIS HAS HAPPENED THE THREE TIMES I'VE USED IT. THE FIRST AND SECOND TIMES IT FINALLY STARTED AFTER ABOUT 4 OR FIVE TRIES. HOWEVER IF I HELD IT THE WRONG WAY IT WOULD DIE AGAIN.THIS LAST TIME I COULD NOT GET IT STARTED AT ALL. SINCE I BOUGHT THE SAW, I HAVE USED IT FOR A TOTAL OF 1 HOUR.

What kind of saw is it? and if this is the problem u might have over primed the button on the side thats part of getting the saw started and maby flooded the carb and could be the reason why its hard to get it goin. Doesnt take much to flood a small motor. Oh and almost forgot do u have the right mixure of ur fuel? for my saw its 40:1.

My 2003 chevy cavaliel will start but the dies after a few secons what could cause this


I do know that when your antitheft system fails, you will get exactly what you have. Turn key, starts for 1-5 seconds, then stalls. This will be followed by a light illuminating on your dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, go to this link for help.

Hi, I bought a brand new Keeway Outlook 125 jusy 5 weeks ago. Since I bought i had problems when starting it so they put in a new carburator that had a new automatic choke on it. I still have problems...


Is it normal that a new bike dies on you as you drive it? No way my friend. The carburetor should have a thermal-choke and it probably needs some adjustment.

Starts very easily runs for 5 seconds then dies, pump quick start bulb once, starts in 1 pull run for 5 seconds , new clean fuel, carb still has factory stops on adjusters limiting change to about 1/4...


hi , if you have a compression tester use that to test for worn piston rings /scored cylinder , if not remove the exhaust and visualise the cylinder and check for scoring , remove the spark plug and block the hole with your thumb , it should feel nice and night when you pull the saw over , if it fails then you will need replacement rings and/or piston and cylinder .
hope this helps
