I'm sure any small engine shop will gladly accept your money to fix this. But first, check to see if the fuel shut off valve is off. You didn't mention the brand or model tractor (more than one type was made!) so I can't tell you exactly where you'll find it - but it will be between the fuel tank and carburetor either "inline" on the fuel line itself or as part of the fuel tank at the point the fuel line connects to the tank. Then drain all the fuel out of the tank. Shine a flashlight into the tank to make sure there is no debris clogging the fuel outlet of the tank - clean as needed and replace with FRESH fuel. You can add the old fuel to your car's tank when nearly full so that you won't have to find a place to dispose of it. You may also need to clean or replace the spark plug, too. if you're unable to to these things, have a look at these repair shops linked below:

Typically lack of use.... (2 or 4 cycle?)

Stale/dirty carb or gasoline, poor carb/choke settings...
Tired ignition coil, corroded connections
leaky fuel hose.. lousy compression, worn cylinders and clogged exhaust muffler...

(see ... didn't even mention "points" or "electronic ignition")...

Short story... Everything...!!

Car has been sitting Need to run.


The old gas will cause hard starting for sure as it is 15 years old but if you don't have very much in the tank you can mix in some new gas.

Toro ride on wont start


Battery required? Charge battery or replace. Replace air filter and spark plug. Dump out old oil and replace with 30w oil. Electric start may have a fuse blown. Dump out old gas fill with new with Stabile always added to gas. Try spraying starter spray in carb at air cleaner with filter removed. All mowers have a low oil sensor to prevent starting on low oil. Remove bowl from carb, should be full of gas. Pinch off fuel line with pliers or turn fuel valve off. Check float should be hanging down allowing fuel flow. Float up stops fuel flow.

Hi,
You have to check and replace the spark plugs, ignition( if there is still sparks coming out ), and replace fuel fitler( drain also the fuel line of old petrol ).
You need a good technician to restart and tune it up!
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

My generator won't start. I started it when I first got it about a year ago. It's been in my garage for about a year.


Remove and clean/check/replace the spark plug first, spray some WD-40 in the cylinder, Remove all old fuel and just fill with enough fuel to run it. If you are comfortable removing the carb then it should be dipped/cleaned. Check to ensure the kill switch is not engaged/unplugged. Lemmee know then we can go further!

I have a 181 se husqvarna chainsaw been in my shed for 4 years not gettin used now am needin it.can anyone help. when am trying to pull cord to start it its realy tough to pull when i take spark plug out...


The engine may be flooded severely. Take the spark plug out, shut the ignition off, turn the saw upside down, pull the throttle full on, and pull the starter a number of times until it quits expelling fuel. Check for a blue and snappy spark (gapped 0.020"). Make sure the fuel tank is filled with fresh fuel mix (50:1 ratio). Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of all of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. The carburetor probably needs to be dis-assembled, cleaned inside and out, and check the condition of the lower diaphragm which should be flexible without holes or cracks. Hope this helps!

So, it turns over, gets spark and gas, but won't start?

Have you tried to put fresh gas in the tank or fresh gas directly into the throttle body?

If it starts, then you know the old gas is no good.
