SOURCE: Won't stay running...

I had the same problem with my mantis. It would start fine after a few pulls, but had no power. I changed the plug, replaced the carb completely...nothing helped. Took it to a shop and paid $70 for a tune up that didn't help at all, and the shop owner just said "sorry".
After everything else was done, I pulled the cover off the muffler, (3 screws) then removed 3 screws over a small spark arrestor screen and found it was clogged...cleaned it and guess what...IT WORKS FINE NOW!

The best and easiest fix I have ever done to a small engine. I felt like an idiot, because the exhaust side of the motor MUST be clear to work properly on small engines. The only reason I was removing the muffler in the first place was to check the compression and VOILA!!!

An easy and quick fix I recommend for all Mantis tillers before you waste money on carb issues (which is what the company will tell you to fix to solve this problem).

SOURCE: 2000 honda 1100 shadow spirit. Rough idle, little power.

Replace the spark plug caps and try again. On Honda's the cap is often part of the wire (a dealer part) NGK makes some inexpensive plug caps about $5 each. They should OHM out to 5000 anything above or below and you need to replace them. This should fix the problem.

SOURCE: i have no fuel at

Make sure you have flow from the tank to the carburetor. Also, when you cleaned the carburetor, there are several jets that have to be open in order for the fuel to "flow" through the carburetor. The carburetor on this generator has a pilot jet located on the top side of the carburetor and a main metering jet that screws into the very bottom of the carburetor and will be visible when the bowl is removed. After the main jet is removed there is a main nozzle that also has holes in it that have to be open also.

Another problem that is possible is compression. If the engine does not have sufficient compression it will not "pull" the fuel into the combustion chamber on the intake stroke. Hope this helps to get you in the right direction.

Stihl br350 backpack blower will only spark when pulled fast. It will not start pulled fast or slow!


To start a small two stroke engine the rope needs to pulled rapidly. So from what you are saying I believe that your problem may not be in the ignition system. An engine needs three things to start and run- air, fuel and spark. Make sure that it is getting enough air by checking the filter and make sure if its a foam element that no foam has torn from the element and been sucked into the engine. Clean or replace a dirty element. Check the fuel filter and make sure that fuel can flow freely through it. Even a tiny amount of dirt can clog a filter enough to hinder flow to the carburetor. Replace the filter if it's dirty or over a season old. Clean the carburetor THOROUGHLY! Use a good quality carb cleaning spray and make sure the diaphragm isn't hardened or creased. Replace any part that's questionable. A way to test start the engine is to put a few drops of pure gasoline in the spark plug hole and quickly replace the plug and pull the cord to start it. If it starts for a moment the ignition system is good. Don't do this more than a few times cause a two stroke engine requires oil in the fuel to lubricate the rotating assembly and running straight fuel for more than a few seconds can damage the engine. Do not use starting fluid it damages two stroke engines.

Might have shaken up dirt in the gas tank. Flush add clean gas with STABIL. Remove bowl from carb check for debris. Take a bread wrapper clean back plastic, use wire to clean out port up thru carb. Clean carb. Reassemble. Use clean air filter.

Why is my 97 Honda 4 wheeler not getting fire


There are three items that are connected together needed to create spark on your 1997 Honda 4-wheeler, regardless of which model it is.
Before we go through a checklist of these three important parts, look for a black wire with a white stripe that runs to the ignition switch and kill button from the CDI box. Disconnect this wire before it gets to the ignition switch and kill button, then check for spark. The most likely cause is a broken kill switch on the handlebar, or shorted ignition switch. Such a condition grounds this wire and kills the spark.
If this test did not restore the spark, continue reading...
Here is what is required to create a spark.

First, the alternator has one coil which generates a high voltage--about 125 Volts AC for the CDI ignitor box.

Second, there is a pulse voltage generated once every revolution of the engine that goes to the CDI box. This pulse causes the CDI to dump its stored energy from the 125 volt line into the primary of the ignition coil.

Third, If the two connections of the wire that runs from the CDI to the Coil are BOTH SHINY clean, the ignition coil will generate a spark.

If any one of these 3 don't happen, the spark will go away. Of these three, item 3 -- one or two tarnished and/or dirty connectors -- is the most likely cause. Just an added resistance of 0.3 Ohms or more in the CDI to Coil connections will cause the ignition to fail. No other wires have to be this clean.

Allpower American. 10000w generator won't start? Changed spark plug, gas is flowing. What else can we try?


Make sure it has plenty of oil. Some engines have a low oil shut off. Pull the spark plug wire off and stick a screw driver down inside the spark plug boot and hold the screw driver about a 1/4 inch away from the top of the spark plug and turn the engine over to see if you have a good bluish spark. If you don't then you have a bad coil or rust build up on the flywheel. If you have spark make sure your gas tank is full with new gas. Make sure the air filter is clean. If that doesn't work try taking the bowl off of the bottom of the carburetor and verify gas flows through the float valve. If that doesn't work then you will probably have to remove the carburetor and clean it out.

Yg2800i generator runs for about 5 minutes and then stalls


Put a new fuel filter on it and when it stalls take the fuel line off the carburetor to check if gas is getting to the carburetor. If it is remove the sparkplug put the wire on it and ground the nut of the plug on the engine block and pull the cord and check for spark between the sparkplug gap. If no spark you might have a faulty coil, when it gets hot it has no spark.

I have been given a honda mower i had to put a new pull start on it & new plug but wont start what can it be


Before you do anything, check for spark. This can be done by removing the spark plug boot from the spark plug and inserting a piece of round conductive metal into the boot, such as a screwdriver, etc. Make sure it makes contact with the coil wire in the boot. Have a second person hold the screwdriver near a metal part of the engine, but make sure there is no spilled fuel in the area. Your helper should also be wearing rubber gloves or such to insulate him from a shock. If there is a strong spark, take the following steps. Drain the old fuel out of the tank. (Fuel goes bad in 30 - 60 days after being purchased unless a fuel stabilizer was added at the time of purchase. Fuel stabilizer will NOT restore bad fuel.) Make sure you drain the carburetor bowl as well. Change the fuel filter (if applicable) and install a brand new plug. The new plug you just put in will be saturated with bad fuel. Honda carburetors are known for being very reliable, seldom needing a rebuild. If you are unable to do, or uncomfortable with any of these procedures, I suggest taking your mower to a small engine repair shop.

Bike not starting at all. sometimes it starts after continous kicks but no use .agian the same problem.


I would suggest that you cleanyour carburetors.
To tell if they need cleaned, spray carb clean in the back of the carb and the kick it over, if it starts right up, then you need to clean your carbs., Drain your gas tank and install a new fuel filter, and put new gas in the tank too.

If it doesn't start right up on the carb cleaner, then check to see if you are getting spark.
If you have spark, then test your compression.
Compression should be at least 125-145 psi but not less than 100 psi to run.

If you don't have spark, pull power wire off coil and see if you have power to the coil.
If you do have power then your coil is bad.
if you don't have power, make sure your on/off switch is working. check wires

As long as you have good compression, good fuel and good spark, that motor will start.

Pull out the plugs and see if they are dry, or wet or , black and sooty.
If dry - no fuel
if wet - no fire or misfire
if black and sooty - clean & check gap or replace with new ones.

My 5700 watt 11 HP McCullough generator wont start. I'm getting good gas to the plug but no spark.


The spark coil is bad if you have no spark

Small engine repair. Part is expensive.

Have you checked spark for sure?
1) Spray WD-40 directly into carburetor
If machine has spark, it will fire
2) Is exhaust port clogged with carbon and dirt?
3) Get new spark plug
Pull out old spark plug
Put spark wire on plug
Hold spark plug wire with fingers
Put spark plug threads against metal opening where spark plug came out.
Metal to metal
Pull cord or push starter
Look for spark between metal

No spark, then spark coil is bad.
