U have a clogged main jet in the carburetor, pull the carb and clean/rebuild it
also verify fuel line flows clean fuel, no gunk in the fuel tank, check it twice.
I am assuming you have spark as well, verify that as well before carb work is done.

22 hp in husqvarna mower, will crank and run 2 or 3 seconds and quit, have changed fuel filter and checked for water in gas


If it starts and runs, even for 2 seconds, it's more likely to be a fuel problem than an electrical one...I'd first suspect the carburetor float/valve being gummed up, especially if you've left it sit for the winter with gas in it...if that isn't it, then remove the gas tank and check the tank and lines to the carb for obstructions...

1996 GMC 1500 truck, Vortec 6 cylinder. Will not start after being turned off for a few hours. Engine turns but won't catch. When I spray some starter fluid in the air filter line to the carb, it will...


I would lean towards the fuel pump, but... How dirty was the old filter??? if it was bad then the new one may have picked up whatever was left in the line. I guess I would go the easy route, replace the fuel filter, this time with the filter off crank the truck and catch the fuel in a mason jar til it is clean, you may need to drain the tank and try to clean it out if it is real dirty. Hope this helped Tim

'79 Chevy van has been in storage for five years. How do I get it running again?


Start by cleaning the fuel tank (water from condensation accumulates in it), clean the fuel lines, clean and adjust the carburettor, drain the old oil, remove the sparkplugs,put some fine oil in the cylinders and crank the engine manually, put new oil,oil filter,sparkplugs,distributor cap and air filter, replace the water and start the engine. Check for leaks, run the engine for an hour followed by an oil engine cleaner.

Mower has sat for about 3 years, so we replaced the battery, and put a new starter also. It will not even turn over. Any suggestions?


Now drain and replace the fluids, clean the air filter, put in a new spark plug, add some stabil fuel additive and good premium grade gas.

Give it a while and continue cranking it periodically and it should start

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.

New battery re-charged but still wont fire


Check for spark
If yes, it is getting FIRE, just needs AIR and FUEL

Give it a 5-second shot or two of Starting Fluid (Ether) through the Air intake (filter) and try to start

Does it kick and run really fast and then stop?

If not, pull the plug, clean and check for GAP of 2-3 matchbook covers. Retry. Does it run (or try to)?

If it does, Now we have to look at Clogged air or fuel filter or water in line(s)

Remove air filter. Try ether again. If it starts and runs, replace or clean air filter. Done!

If not... Replace AIR filter and Drain fuel into metal or Glass jug, take off fuel filter, open and drain fuel bowl. Replace fuel filter, refill tank, prime, give it a shot of ether and try again. If it runs, Done!

If it still will not stay running, but you can coax it by giving it a blast every 5-10sec, it could be linkage, stuck choke, throttle plate or jets. Give carb a good cleaning, check throttle plate (in carb throat between it and Air Cleaner) and.check Choke. Try again.

If it still will not run, take to mower mechanic.

The tank was filled with diesel


you'll need to remove the tank and drain it and clean it. replace the fuel filter and unhook the fuel line from the injector... turn the key on and let the fuel pump run till all you are getting out of the hose is gas.
