Why does yardworks 173cc bs engine will start, run, for 2-3 seconds then stop


Bad gas. Drain gas and refill with fresh gas with Stabil. Old oil. Drain oil fill with fresh 30w oil, 16-18oz. Clean air filter and spark plug.. Relpace air filter if dirty. Saving $$$ on this simple tune up is not intelligent.

Gas in crankcase and oil


The best solution I have found for this is to turn the gas shut off valve off when not in use. I have many of these Honda motors and on all of them if you don't close that valve after use, the crank case will fill with gas.

190cc 675 sears push LM. Irene put it under water. Drained carb and crank. removed and cleaned filter. New gas. Won't start. Got a little pop with starter spray. No pop at all?


Did you drain fuel tank before refilling with fresh fuel? Drained carburator bowl good, drained crankcase and refilled with fresh oil good,removed air cleaner and dried out good. One question for you , did you remove spark plug and drain any water that may have gotten into your cylinder through an open valve? There could be water sloshing around in the cylinder, gas and water will not fire, and water on spark plug wont allow plug to spark. If you need any more help please get back to me , I believe this is the first under water problem I've encountered. GOOD LUCK.

This a common problem after they have set up over the winter. Water has probably condensated in your gas tank and now it is in the gas line. The tank should be drained of old gas and the gas line to the carb should be removed from the tank and blown out with compressed air to remove all old gas/ water. Attach the gas line back to the tank and refill the tank with new fuel. This should take care of the problem. To avoid this next time, just fill your gas tank to the top at the end of the season and leave it full through the winter.

If you have that much gas in your oil it's usually because the float valve in the carburator is stuck open. This allows gas to overfill the carb, it then goes to the cylinder and is thin enough to get by the rings and into the crankcase. It could be because there is something in the valve seat keeping it from closing or the float could be damaged.

The carby probably has a block either in the idle, jet or float valve. These are both internal to the carby. To fix this, you will need to pull the carby off the engine and get it serviced by a tradesman. If you feel keen, split the carby apart, then run a very small drill bit (.38-.7mm) through the Jets by hand. Also spray carby cleaner in there and blow out with air blower.
