Hello, First check oil level to make sure it is ok. Then, take out the air filter and clean, also take spark plug out and clean and check the gap according to your users manual. Add fresh gas and choke and start.

Over an extended period of time gas will evaporate in a carburator. It's possible that presure is leaking off in your fuel pump as well. A weak pump will have trouble maintaining pressure over a period of time and will have trouble building pressure back up. Starting the engine on a regular basis and letting it run for a few minutes will cure the problem and help keep the engine seals from drying out and leaking. Converting to an electric fuel pump will also make it easier to start after sitting for a period of time.
Any generic LOW PRESSURE electric pump will work. It only needs to put out between 7 and 9 or 10 pounds pressure. Unhook the fuel lines from your mechanical pump and hook to the electric. The li ne from the tank goes on the inlet end. The electric pump usually ground through the case so it needs contact with bare metal or a wire running from the case to bare metal. Run the power wire to a powered wire in the engine compartment that powers on and off with the key or to an accessory fuse in the fuse box. It should run through a 20A fuse.
Hope this helps.

Gas getting into oil


sounds like the float in the carb needs adjusted.it will happen if it sits for a long period of time,but id get it fixed because the gas dilutes the oil and decreases the viscosity and could harm the engine.or you could turn the gas off at the petcock as i do on my fourwheeler which has the same problem.

Miss sometime after sitting


It it sits for an extended period of time this could be due to bad gas (gas can go bad in as little as two weeks when left sitting); or it could be you have bad vale seals or other seals leaking slightly. This can only be determined by doing a good check out of the engine and systems.

If it only does it for a min or two after sitting then starting, I wouldn't worry too much. Alot depends on the age of the motor and how many miles you have.

Starting problem after engines warm smell gas


I had the same problem. It may start to or already is stalling as you slow down or stop. I changed my fuel pressure switch located right on the fuel rail on top of the motor. It's about $80.
