SOURCE: hi my name is fabio i have got a traxxas nitro

So you never had it running yet? Or did you ? Can you turn the motor by turning the flywheel ? If not it is seized and you need to heat up the motor to turn the engine again. Leave it at BDC ( bottom dead center) when you turn it off.

I have a Jato 2.4 from traxxas and i cant get it to start and i charged my battery all night


you need to pull the glow plug out and see if its good visually; look at the coil in the hole in the bottom it should look like a spring unbroken. If you have a glow stick put it on the plug and see if it glows. If you can just replace the glow plug they go bad and it may still look fine.
you need to set your main carb needle to 3 turns out from closed.

Now with the glow plug out place a clean rag over the cylinder head where the plug came out of and use you starting wand to turn the motor over........the rag is there to keep fuel from spraying in your eyes. turn the motor for 5 seconds.

Next put the plug back in and gently tighten it down with an 8mm socket. Put your plug wire back on and try to start the engine for 3 seconds. If it starts up reves high then dies try this.
Put your finger over the exhaust and turn the motor over until you see gas go into the carb the remove your finger from the exhaust and continue to crank the motor for no more than 10 seconds.....she should start now. Adjust the carb according to the manual. Have fun.

I have a 4500 John Deer tractor that typically won't start in cold temperatures (i.e. 39 or below) otherwise it starts promptly. I've pushed the key in to heat the glow plug a minute or more.


The 4500 John Deere tractor sounds like the glow plugs are not working. Checked voltage at the glow plugs to make sure that there is 12 DC volts.(Might have to remove main wire from the glow plugs to check!) If no voltage at glow plugs there maybe a bad fuse,relay or wire connection in the glow plug circuit. If there is 12 DC volts at the glow plugs, it is possible that the glow plugs need to be replaced.

3.3 revo hard to start after started it will not idle and when it dies it does not want to restart. This did not happen until I drve it thru alot of wet grass last year


Hi
2 stroke engines are very simple. If there's fuel (under pressure) and a spark it will run. Check the glow plug by trying to start it with glow plug removed but still connected and touching the engine body. If the little center wire glows bright red, then it's OK. Only do this for a second or so. If the plug is OK then it has to be a fuel problem. Traxxas has a long history of cracked gas tanks. Good luck

My revo is getting fuel light on start remote are on both motor and glow plug engine will just turn over but will not start up


Hi
You've checked the glow plug externally to see the wire get red? If so, as long as you've got fuel and fire then it has to start. My guess here is that you have either a bad glow plug, low batteries, fuel air leak or clogged pressure line. Put a charged battery into the starter. Remove the glow plug and try to start - fuel should spurt up through the glow plug opening. Now connect the glow plug and touch it to the engine. Try to start and you should see the glow plug wire glow red. (do this only for a second. Now disconnect the pressure tap from the muffler and try to start. All else fails, replace the fuel line to the carb and the pressure tap. Your carburetor can leak air through the rubber gasket . Also, Traxxas fuel tanks have a cracking problem. Good luck

I have a traxxas revo 3.3 and it turns over but it will not start what do i do


The glow plug could be bad. If the motor turns over and is getting fuel I would replace the glow plug.

Car over heat start but run very rough


I would start with a new glow plug, they can be purchased at most hobby shops for around $5. If the engine got hot enough it could be damaged internally. A rebuild kit is available from Traxxas, I am not sure how much one is for a 3.3, but they are usually less than half the costs of a new motor.

Could be a bad glow plug. I would start there, they are inexpensive and easy to change.
