Pull spark plug wire. Insert a screwdriver into the wire and hold screwdriver close to the terminal (top of spark plug). Then try to start it to confirm you have spark. If no spark, you may need new coil.

I have a 1994 Yamaha 40 horsepower 2-stroke outboard motor turns over won't start doesn't seem like it's getting gas change the fuel line any other suggestions


Try removing a spark plug and make sure you are getting spark. If there is spark put a couple tablespoons of premixed fuel directly into the cylinder before putting the plug back in. It should fire right up, and hopefully will speed up the priming of the fuel system. Hope this is of some help to ya, good luck.

Broken altenator belt peugeot partner 2002


Once your belt snapped all of your cars power was running off of the battery (lights, radio, spark plugs, etc.), then your battery died. Therefore you have no power to turn your starter and apply a spark. Get someone to jump your car, once your car is started allow it to run for a little while to charger your battery back up. Batteries don't allways charge up properly either so you may end up needing a battery, depending on its age.

Your description of the problem seems to suggest that the compressor start relay may be bad. If there is a capacitor present it should be also tested. If start relay and/or capacitor is defective, you have the option to replace it with OEM; which may be a bit expansive, or use a Solid State Relay Overload Start Capacitor Combination. Before replacing or installing one of them, check the horsepower of your compressor. Solid state relay overload start capacitors are horsepower based.

I have a pressure washer at work that has good spark and starts when I put gas in the carburetor.But it wont stay running. I have the gas turned on but it doesn't seem to be getting to the carb. It's...


Here is the long answer with everything we learned while using a power washer twice a day for years:: It covers the things you already tested, but doesn't hurt to repeat. Your problem is actually #8 on list below.

It sounds like could be one of the problems listed below or a combination of those things.
1) The exhaust is partially blocked. Check the screen covering exhaust port for carbon and dirt build-up. High-speed exhaust air must pass freely. We finally broke the exhaust screen out with a screwdriver to get our machine going one day.
2) Gas is not flowing freely to carburetor > under gas tank, find the rubber hose connected to carburetor. Pull off rubber hose and make sure gas flows freely. You can use this hose to drain gas tank of old gas ... and then put in fresh gas.
3) Carburetor is partially gummed up and engine cuts off when gas flow slows down. Buy some gum out, and then don't store power washer with gasoline in the tank. Or put additive in gas when storing machine.
4) The choke is letting in too much gas or not enough gas. Try different adjustments. The choke-lever on our power washer got so bad that we could not set throttle at full open or machine would die. We still use machine at 2/3 throttle, and then start each time using WD-40 as described below.
5) Dirty air filter that won't let engine breath enough air to keep up with combustion. Take off air filter and see if problem persists.
6) The spark coil is going bad?? Change spark plug to see if problem persists. Is spark plug wire pushed all the way onto the spark plug?

Now the nitty gritty
7) Take off air filter. Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor. Yes, we use WD-40 every time to start my power washer, and we use the washer twice a week.
Spray in the WD-40, Pull the engine cord. The engine will fire on WD-40. Guaranteed.
Once it starts, keep spraying WD-40 directly into carburetor to keep engine going.
If engine will not fire on WD-40, then your spark is suspect.

If your engine fires and runs on WD-40 but dies without it, then your gas supply or carburetor are suspect

8) Carburetor problem >>> try Gum out >>> and then take machine to small engine repair shop

9) Spark ... take out spark plug. Put spark wire back on. Hold spark plug by spark wire. Touch metal threads of spark plug to metal opening where plug came out. Metal to metal. Pull back start cord and look for spark between the metal.
If you have no spark, then spark coil is bad >>> take machine to small engine repair shop

The All Power Generator is 6.5 horsepower and was left outside and got dew on it. It was not on at the time. Now it won't start. Gas tank is full. Oil level is good. Seems like the spark plug is firing...


Don't think the dew would do anything, I would make sure gas is turned on, then pull the plug and clean or replace. Give it another go. PS: I sometimes use a propane torch to clean the oil from the end of fouled plug if a new plug isn't available. May get you through for a bit. Careful not to get to hot.

Air Compressor question


No, When an air compressor is built, it requires a motor or engine to power the process of producing air. The horsepower is not the only component of the equation. It has to be combined with the compressor pump that it runs to produce the air needed. The bigger the horsepower does not necessarily mean more air. Remember to keep your required cfm in mind. Horsepower does not make you work more efficiently, but horsepower working in unison with a quality pump that produces enough cfm for your needs. Make sure when shopping that you look for the running horsepower and not the peak horsepower you get at startup. Some manufacturers have falsely advertised or implied the peak horsepower to be the normal run horsepower. At start-up, there is a surge of power needed to start the motor and can be 1.5-3 times the amount of running power needed. This means the horsepower need for the motor peaks as well, but then drops back down to normal. Many of these manufacturers are involved in a class-action lawsuit for misrepresentation. They have used man’s machismo of “the more horsepower, the better” to their advantage to make sales. These aren’t cars we’re talking about!
