Starter fluid will help alot. just spray 2-3 bursts into the air intake and pull the cord. If if doesnt take off have a friend keep squirting as u hold on to it and the trigger.

My jonstred chain saw has no choke lever


Ian Duncan...

I have no idea if you are bragging or complaining...

I WILL TELL YOU ... I have started many many a chain saw... and the chokes are nearly useless...

FIRST RULE: always use only fresh fuel...!!

Proper sequence for an ice cold saw (optimal adjustment)...
- squish the fuel bulb a couple of times
- set the choke
- couple of yanks until it coughs...
- completely release the choke and the next yank will get you running

If you have NO CHOKE... JUST leave the THROTTLE ALONE
until it coughs... Then start juicing the throttle...

What's a jonstred? Oh... Jonsered

How do I assure cold start?


A good healthy spark is the first place to look, because you say once running and warm it is fine it doesn't sound like a carb or fuel delivery problem. Remove the spark plug and check condition, gap and color and make sure there is a good clean spark. Check plug cap and lead is in good condition. Replace them if they are suspect. They are the cheapest and quickest and easiest things to check/replace and go on from there. A warm engine doesn't require such a good spark, so start looking at that first.

Saw won't start without starting fluid.


Sounds like you have a compression problem. Starting fluid will fire at a much lower compression than a gas/oil mix so that's why it will start with it. When the motor is running you get a little more compression because the piston is coming up so fast. You should check the condition of your cylinder wall and piston & ring. If they are damaged at all you loose compression which directly affects starting and running power.

Can't get it started after new spark plug (gets spark), new gas, good compression tried starting fluid. Whats the problem?


Quick way to check condition of the engine is to remove the muffler. Also make sure that the spark arrest screen is clean. With muffler off, examine the condition of the piston and cylinder. If the piston looks burned and cylinder is scratched, saw will be hard to start. The cylinder and piston should look very smooth. Secondary test to verify condition of engine is to spray plenty of wd40 in cylinder and around piston, then pull the starter slowly. If you see lots of bubbles as you pull, indicates compression is leaking and will be hard to start. If cylinder/piston are in good condition, use new spark plug and retest.

Start at 1.5 CCW form lightly seated then tune for performance like this:
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

I think your starting procedure may be the cause of flooding. Flooded is the #1 cause of hard starts in 2-cycle engines. Read carefully the recommended start in your manual. most miss the second note. It should be similar to this (read 3, read it again):
Warm start in the manual says 1/2 choke BS. Close choke, (sets fast idle) open choke, pull rope.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts (usually first pull).
If you still have trouble reply as you did before. I will get back to you. HTH

I am going to assume you are following the warm start procedure in your manual. Most start problems with 2-cycle engines are caused by flooding.

Before you shut if off roll it to the side and loosen the fuel cap (vent tank - leave it loose until restart) Better? Repair fuel vent. No better carburetor needs small adjustment. This explains it better than I can but you will need to experiment some.

Mcculloch 3516 chain saw, does not always start.


It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The 3516 is a MTD McCulloch (Chinese). These saws are in a class by themselves. Good Luck

1999 Tahoe 5.0 Very hard starting, sometimes requires starting fluid to get started. once started runs fine. Has had a full tune-up, new fuel filter. Fuel pressure has been checked and is ok. 2 different...


The most common cause of this condition is the check valve in the fuel pump failing, to check this hook up a fuel test guage to the fuel rail test port, run the engine for a moment and shut it down, after shout down the pressure should stay within 5 PSI of the pressure at shut down after sitting overnight, if it doesn't then the fuel pump must be replaced, the reason is the fuel drains back to the tank if the valve is defective, so you get air and no real pressure on cold start, A check of pressure on a hot running engine will not show this fault, also make sure you are usine the correct Octane of fuel, Prem fuel in a regular fuel engine will cause cold start and stalling issues in cold weather.
