1) Sounds like the gaskets and/or needles in the bowl are shot or mis-adjusted. That allows gas to run out of the bowl down into the engine overnight. Carb might need to be re-built.
2) If there is gas in the bowl - Is the choke working properly? The butterfly should close completely.

How to prime carburetor on 1988 Toyota tercel 1bbl


Normally, you wouldn't need to do this to get the engine started. If you have a mechanical fuel pump ion the engine, just cranking the engine over should cause the pump to push gas into the carburetor. And if an electric pump, it should come on with the key in on.

But to prime, pour a small amount of gas down the throat of the carb, and crank. As the engine fires and runs, the pump should begin working and pushing fuel into the carb.

hi, sounds like a stuck float in your carb. Try tapping the carb briskly! sounds like gas is slowly dripping in the bowl overnight and you burn it the next day. I would take the bowl off and see how much gas pours out. It should come out like a light stream of pee. Could be cloged fuel filter or a gumed up or broken float, carb rebuild kits are cheap.
Good Luck!

I ran out of gas, now it won't start. what do i do?


Okay....I think your bike may have a vacuum operated fuel petcock.....which is the fuel valve on the bottom of the tank. It shuts the fuel off automatically when the engine stops and the hose from the intake to the side of the petcock loses vacuum.
So when you restart the bike the petcock is closed till the engine starts...which is okay because there is a small amount of fuel in the carb.........until you run out of gas....then the engine quits and the carb is empty.
To handle this situation, typically there is a prime position on the petcock that allows flow without vacuum to "prime" the empty carb......usually marked as PRI on the petcock,
So rotate the lever on the petcocck to prime....wait a couple minutes....get the bike started and set the petcock back to the normal setting....don't leave it on PRIME as fuel may flow overflowing the carb.

I have a p-3416 poulan saw it is getting spark but the saw still wont start


It's not getting gas. Possible wrong mix oil to gas, but not real likely. Possible sat over the last winter with gas in it and varnished. I'm guessing this is the one, more likely than not. take cover and filter off and clean and bag 'em. pour carb cleaner in the carb and soak overnight. Dump out (carb cleaner and old gas)into a sealable jar or can and fill with straight gas and soak an hour and dump into trash gas/carb cleaner. Use a bicycle pump to blow air into carb to dry it. At most use a computer air can. Then start with the right gas/oil mix, prime it, set the trigger and choke and drop start. (It helps to have the spark plug out during the soak. Then clean it and sandpaper the gap and the magneto area on the flywheel).

Have to prime carburetor to start truck.


It is a good idea to replace the kit, and it is a matter of stripping the carb and taking note what you removed where and replacing with a new part. You should also check the spark plugs and timing. If the timing is out, the engine will also have difficulty starting.
