1. Did you hit something with the blade? If you hit a root with the blade, it can bend the woodruff key on the shaft that the flywheel sits on. This will throw it out of time. Would need a new key. 2. Check the spark plug again and see if it is wet with fuel or looks black. You alway want to check for spark 1st (remove spark plug and attach a spark tester). Determine if it is a spark problem, then move to a fuel problem.

SOURCE: hard starting smokes white like gas is getting into cylinders

White smoke in a small engine is oil. Oil in the cylinder will create too much pressure for the engine to achieve compression. Make sure the engine is not getting fuel into the oil and thinning the mixture (literally smell the oil... gasoline and oil smell nothing alike, if it smells like gas, it is). If this is the case, the carb is leaking fuel into the engine, thinning the oil and causing the oil to leak past the rings into the cylinder head, through the valves and, from there, into the exhaust to burn off. Black smoke indicates a direct fuel issue in a small engine, white is oil based.

SOURCE: John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Are you trying to start the machine without sitting on it? There may be a kill switch under the operator's seat that won't let the engine start without the operator sitting on the seat.

SOURCE: What is the 2 stroke

hi there keithprobert

the ratio to use if using top quality 2 stroke oil is 50:1 that is 20 mills of 2 stroke oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix.

but if not using top quality 2 stroke oil use ratio 25:1 that is 40 mills of 2stroke oil per 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix.

After running my kia 3.5 with out water car stopped i put water in started her up went a mile stopped altogether and then had to get towed home what damage have i done to her


Sounds like the engine got very hot and possibly distorted the cylinder head. That means the head will need to be removed and shaved down until it is perfectly flat where it seals to the block. Check the compression on all the cylinders. that will tell you alot. If the compression is lower than 90 psi on any cylinder or if the pressure varies greatly from cylinder to cylinder you will need head work.

Any ideas why it wont'n start. Any common problem?


riding mower or push along mower? If the first, it most likely has a dirty safety switch, seat, mower chassis desk, clutch might also have one. WD-40 works wonders with these switches cleaned.

Compressor gets very hot


The compressor has a start device that could be the problem. If you remove it it should not rattle if it does it is very likely the problem. If it doesn't rattle then it could be your compressor. Check the start device first. it is located directly on the side of the compressor. and is easy to remove and install anoter.

2010 ford fusion vibration at idle and acceleration.


Chances are its a minor miss in one of the cylinders. You don't feel it neutral at idle or until the trans goes into overdrive because those times the engine is not working very hard.
If it is a miss fire the check engine light will come on when it gets bad enough to affect fuel mileage.
If you have not yet changed the plugs I would start with that. There is also a chance you damaged the engine when it overheated.
