My briggs and Stratton Intel 206, 5.5 hsp, was running fine, began to lower rpm until finally quit, oil and gas ok, cleaned jets, no change? Could it be a governor or linkage issue.


I would check Spark & Compression with Compression tester! This goes into the same place where the spark is& Compression should be above 70 if not the engine is no good. Let me know.

My 97 f250 overheated and wont start now, checked sparkplugs coil cylinders gas,fuelrail pressure, inertia switch,fuses that i can see etc.


If it overheated you may need to do a compression test and cooling system pressure test to determine if you have done serious internal damage.

Car overheated today and began to spill oil. now that I've put water and new oil it doesn't leak but the car shakes when I put it in drive


have you checked the compression on all cylinders?;if two adjacent cylinders are in low range,you may have head gasket damaged. Did you notice oil mixed with vapor on the radiatior cap,oil in the radiator/crankcase (oil looks like chocolate color 'cause of oil/water mixed). Do your spark plugs look like they've been steam cleaned?(from steam in the cylinder head)

Codes say Cylinder 4, 5 & 6 are not firing. This could be a spark issue or a fuel issue or a mechanical engine failure. Is compression zero? Did they use a compression tester?

Hero honda splendor is my bike it has problem of oil is coming in spark plug & spark plug is short how can solve this problem


The Honda Splendor has a 4 stroke engine and can have worn valve seals or rings. If the engine smokes while riding it may be time for a top end re-build. You should complete a compression test to evaluate the condition of the piston and valves. If the compression is low ( under 120 psi ) it is time for a top end re-build.

2004 v twin 16 hp 500hours on it runs but spits fuel throught carb when giving gas runs like its missing on one cylinder replaced carb, plugs, fuel filter, it has 120 lbs of compression in each cylinder...


You should take one of the heads off and look at the valves. You may have deposits building up no the valves.

120 pounds compression sounds pretty good for a six year old engine with 500 hours on it. It probably started life at 9 to 1 and now is around 8 to 1.

350 chevy Lost compression and engine began to smoke.


pull out your spark plugs and try cranking the motor again, see if you're spitting out coolant from the plug holes. I'm asking you to do this, cuz it sounds like you blew a head gasket.
