I've noticed some problems with my old Stihl saw not starting and the solution was simply to empty out all the fuel and leave the cap off for a few days. What happens when you leave the fuel in for too long it starts to soak into the fuel pickup line ( looks like a piece of rubber hose with a filter on the end of it) and the rubber gets so soft, it just collapses just from the litlle bit suction coming from the carburetor..

When I let my air dry out for a while it became a lot more solid and my Stihl worked faithfully again.
Try the simple things first. Use new gas with right ratio of gas:oil ( too much oil makes an engine hard to start). Check that the spark plug is clear and not burnt with to much carbon. Also pull off the boot of the plug and ground it to the engine with ground it to the engine frame and see if you get a bright spark when you pull the handle

check all fuses first in the cab and in the engine bay.
always check fuses first. the battery voltage.

battery is good and jumper starts fail.

then you move key to crank position (start) i will wiggle the shiftlever.
boom is cranks

I hot wire the starter solenoid. it cranks (wont start , key in pockets)
hot wire fails,battery good, starter is toast.
hot wire test passes ,cranks nice.
i then grab my trusty DMM and flip dial to Volts.
i then find why my KEY line is dead.
if you get this far, ask how to fix a dead Key line.,

No voltage on crank sensor grand am 2001 2.4


The crank and cam sensors produce ac voltage that is sent to the computer. There are magnets or components on the crank and cam that the sensors "read".
The problem could be the harness between the sensors and the computer, or a mechanical problem like a timing chain or gear.

Starter wont crank on a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

Starter wont crank with ignition key


Well, if you have a problem with the security system not allowing you to crank, then you have a problem that can be fixed only by the dealer.

Check your key and verify that it doesn't have a dirty or wet resistor on the security ignition key. This is a common problem with this type of security system.

Good luck on fixing this problem.
