Will not crank, or spins over, and will not run? I suppose it is the 1st time this year? Let's start here. If the old plug was dry of gas, it needs a little priming, pull out your new plug you installed and pour a milk capful of gas in the sparkplug hole, put the plug back in and try starting, after 5 tries it should fire, and give you an idea whether to push the plunger, or crank a few more times.

Could have scored the rings, broken ring, or just cooked the piston to the sleeve, maybe melted the connecting rod to crank, damaged needle bearings. Most likely needs to be taken apart.

Poured in the wrong oil/gas ratio into my Craftsman leaf blower. Stupidly poured entire 2-cycle oil provided directly into the blower reservoir and filled balanced with gas (Should've read instructions...

it only means your spark plug is covered in oil. I do not expect any damage. try and remove and clean spark plug maybe use some gas to wash the excess off. maybe put a small drop of gas into the spark plug hole and replace. this may help start the engine. what you need to do this flush out all the oil so that the correct mix can get in. Also ensure no oil has got into the air filter ensure that is clearn before trying to start it again.

I hope this was useful

Gp 800 will crank but wont start

Hi, most likely the trigger coils near the flywheel, it will still have spark but the timing may be off. Try new plugs first as they may have spark outside the cylinders but not when under compression. Regards Phil

Look for leaky injector. Try starting fluid to see if it improves the starting. If it does, then the injectors may be partially plugged. Try some fuel injector cleaner poured into the gas tank.

I have a gas operated 31cc Craftsman model number 316.798221 weedwacker trimmer 17 I mixed fuel with 2 cycle engine oil using a 4 to 1 ratio. The trimmer no longer starts. It seems as if it is about to...

If you have mixed your gas and oil to a 4 to one mix you have way too much oil in your gasoline. Drain out your fuel tank and carburetor. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Remove the spark plug and clean if necessary. Mix your fuel in a fuel container at 40 to one. Some sites even recommend a 50 to one mixture. (50 to one mixture is one pint of oil to 6 gallons of gasoline) Refill your fuel tank on the trimmer and try to crank, if it does not want to crank within 4-5 pulls then you may want to give it a very small shot of starting ether in the carburetor intake and try to crank again. Good Luck, I hope this helped, Please rate me, Thanks

My gas blower was running fine and it ran out of gas i filled it up and primed it and it will not fire ,, i poured a little gas in the spark plug and it did fire and ran rought for a few seconds

Most always this is a build-up, or manifestation of either flat or old gas, gas with too much oil mixed in, or good old H2O in the storage gas container that runs into the power tool as the supplying tank gets a bit low, or gets shaken before filling-up the blower. Completely empty the blower of fuel. If you are not capable, then have someone remove thewater and/or debris from the carb. inside the blower. or Empyt all fuel in the tank then remove the plug and give it "200" pulls, then replace the plug and give it "100" more. This will sometimes move the trash through if you cannot have it professionally repaired. Replace ALL old fuel with new, properly mixed fuel.
