00 polaris 90 scrambler wont start first time unless you use starting fluid after that your all right it start fine it has a electric choke?


check the operation of the electric choke as it may not be properly adjusted to be closed at first start
chokes(manual or otherwise) are held open until you open the accelerator/throttle to release the cam lock to allow the choke butterfly to snap closed
the problem will be in the choke area of operation

My 1969 GTO takes forever to start in cold weather, once it catches and warms up it runs fine


Assuming the engine is in good shape and not in need of a major tune-up, check your carburetor choke. It's not closing when cold. Clean and adjust.

Get a service manual and follow the instructions. Far too complicated to cover here.

Also, make sure you know how to properly SET the choke on a cold start. Slowly push the gas pedal to the floor and let up. Start engine without touching gas. If it's REALLY cold, like 0 degrees, you can hold the pedal halfway down while starting, after setting the choke.

My 4 cycle BP blower will run with the choke halfway, but not fully opened or fully closed. The throttle will not increase speed, either. What would you suggest? It takes a good 5 minutes with choke...


The carburetor needs to be cleaned and/or adjusted so if you do that, you may as well install a low price gasket and diaphragm kit in it. This will alleviate all the problems that you mention. I don't know your model number else I could give you the part number for the carb kit to install. This solution works most of the time.

My MTD Yard Machine Y2500 starts fine and works with the choke partly closed. It also idles fine with the choke fully closed but stalls when I press on the throttle when the choke is fully closed.


when the choke is fully closed your choking the fuel out,, thats why when you give i t gas it dies , its not supposed to run with the choke on and getting fuel , use the choke only until the motor warms up to operating temp,, then open it,, and you should be fine,

Hard starting on a Makita line trimmer? How do I solve this issue?


Try pushing the primer 8-10 times hold the throttle wide open and turn choke too full.when it starts it will probably quit turn choke to halfway and start again.should stay running.If that don,t work carb needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

DR 200 runs really cold. Takes about 15 minutes or so to warm up


It depends on the tempature, if its pretty chilly out yeah. Try easing the choke in slowly, and when it will idle at about half choke go aheand and take off but run the bike easy for a few minutes then close the choke.

Starting?


pull the choke out fully, start the engine, push choke into halfway if it will still run, let it warm for a min or 2. ride it, it may need choke still for about a mile. but thats trial and error, try pushing it in, you will find out right away if the bike still wants it.
i have an owners manual on this bike if you need a copy e-mail me vision-tech@comcast.net
