Question about General Garden

Open Question

I have an IHI IS-30G mini that was overheating and lossing power. I replaced the air filter, oil and oil filter and all was well. I ran it a short time and turned it off. The next day it would not start. I have drained the gas and replaced it, but it still just turns. COuld it be the fuel filter, fuel pump or something else. Also, is there a downloadable manual for these machines?

SOURCE: hard start

Its your fuel pump.I had the same plomblem not too long ago.I was spraying either in to start it.I have a 97 chevy truck witch requires 65 psi to start and 55 to run properly.You need to find out much psi you need to start it.You can probaly look in your manual or just make a few calls.My truck had 55 psi and it ran fine i just had to get it running first.Good luck.I wonder if that fuel pressure regulator was a waste of time like it was for me.

Sounds alot like the ignition sensor. In my old Chevys it was under the dist cap, mounted on the dist itself. Mine was flat, slightly curved rectangle shape, with two flat prongs coming out both sides. If it would get an internal break in it, you cant see it. I would have the same problem as you, part was only about $12. And comes out with unscrewing two screws.
Might want to give it a shot.

Overheated replaced radiator now leak oil and

There isn't much you could have done incorrectly by changing the radiator to cause the problems you have now. Therefore, I'm guessing that you badly overheated the engine. When that happens, engine seals become brittle and loose their ability to seal which results in oil leaks. High temperatures can cause the compression rings on the pistons to relax, in which case you are now loosing compression which not only causes performance loss but will also pressurize the inside of the engine and cause leaks.. Extreme heating can also allow your timing chain to stretch a bit, also causing performance problems.
If you have already checked the condition of the ignition system to make sure there is no arcing and spark loss, I'd do a compression and or cylinder leak-down test to check the internal condition of the engine.
If everything turns out to be OK inside, then treat this like any other performance problem and test all sensors, run a code test and make sure the air filter is clean and the converter is flowing well. As for oil leaks, Replace seals or gaskets that are leaking.

Hi there my mini keeps overheating.i have changed the thermostat,radiator and still overheating. the car is not losing any water and there is no traces of water in the oil and no white smoke or water...

It could be signs of early head gasket failure. I had a subaroo do the same thing, ran great but would boil out water, then it finally blew. Had to replace the engine. It was cheaper than doing the heads. There was no signs of white smoke, no water in oil, just ran hot, some of the time. I don't know if a compression check would help, but what I would do is get it to a radiator shop, they will tell you more than anybody.

Engine overheating

Assuming you have no loss of water invesigate the cooling fan operation.If you are losing water but cannot see signs of this then investigate your head gasket.

Chevy Aveo - Lousy Fuel Milage, From 33+hwy to 19mpg

try giving your car a simple service, change oil, oil filter, air filter, plugs and leads etc. also get your wheels aligned and balanced as having bad geo can also be bad for fuel consumption. if that doesnt work then id recomend a garage.
