Question about Makita DCS6401 20 20",64cc Chainsaw 2 Cycle

1 Answer

Hi I am a lady....and do not know alot about cars but sometimes my car will start and sometimes I have to have someone pour gas into the carb to get it started. Right now it will not start...I have never poured gas in by myself...do I have to remove the two top screws on the carb to get it open to pour gas in? I am having a problem getting the inside screw off because of wiring in the car...please help

What year, model and engine type is your car? I never advocate pouring gas in the carb as bad things can happen as a result.

Mower will only start with gas poured directly into the cylinder


You need to rebuild the carb. The kits are cheap. Less than $10 for most. If that does not work possible carb replacement needed. Sometimes these carbs get clogged an cant be opened because orifice are to clogged. Carbs are not expensive. For $20- $25 it can be fixed.

Gas not staying in carb, when cold very hard to start


it sounds like the choke isn't closing on the carburetor when the engine is cold ( more gas, less air). normally step on gas pedal once to close choke before starting. need to find someone familiar with carburetors to help as it can be technical setting it up

try to open the air filter and pour a little bit of petrol inside carb, bottle cap size... if its runs, then your carb need to service, the car might not starts for quite sometimes i guess.

I was driving down the road and the truck just quit. it cranks very well, but no intentions of turning over. i checked the spark,good but even when i puur gas in the carb. nothing happens


this sounds like a bad fuelpump, try spraying starting fluid in throtle instead of pouring gas, when you pour gas it may not enter all cylinders it may just sit in intake galley. try the starting fluid.also have someone crank the engine while you beat on bottom of gas tank with a rubber hammer, this sometimes shakes fuelpump and make a contact to get pump going again.

Not getting fuel to carb.already changed fuel pump and fuel pump relay will start by pouring gas in carb


If the car starts when you pour gas into the carb. The fuel pump is defective. Or the fuel filter is stopped up.

No power to fuel pump


is it electric or mechanical. And the pump might be starting to go out. Make sure the filter is clean

Gas pouring out of air filter


carb is gummed up from the old fuel turning to varnish and clogging the jets. while trying to start, its trying to inject fuel, but its clogged and taking the path of least resistance (coming out the air filter).

you'll need to drain the gas tank and remove the carb to clean it out. if unfamiliar or uncomfortable doing this, then take it to someone to do a carb cleaning.

Fuel leak


Wait... fuel is pouring out of the crankcase breather? Are you sure it's not the carb overflow tube? The crankcase breather should be going back into your airbox or through some kind of filter. If gas is coming out of there DO NOT START YOUR BIKE. It means that gas has gone from the tank through the carbs into the cylinder and is now in your oil. Thinned out oil is the devil for bikes. Sounds like you'll need to clean the carbs and set the float bowl height and maybe rebuild the petcock. Check to see if any fuel is coming out when the petcock is turned off. If it only has on pri and reserve then check for gas in the vaccum tube.,,
