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.

1999 KX 125 The bike has compression and spark, the carb seems to be flowing fuel but it won"t fire and seems to be emptying the cylinder we've put fuel directly into the cylinder enough to fire...


Check your fuel filter, sounds like it maybe clogged or needs replaced, can use a generic gas filter to fix or troubleshoot your problem. Rick

Suzuki gt380 running on 2 cylinders carbs clean main jet clear could it be the coil but their seems to be a good spark


HI A TWO STROKE NEEDS ONLY THREE THINGS TO RUN, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A POINT GAP AND CORRECT IGNITION TIMEING,

1 FUEL
2 SPARK
3 MOST IMPORTANTLY IS COMPRESON,


IF YOU HAVE A SPARK THEN I WOULD NOT SUSPECT A COIL THEY EITHER WORK OR THEY DONT WORK.
IS THE PLUG GETTING WET ON THE CYLINDER THAT DOES NOT RUN? IF YES THEN ITS NOT A FUEL PROB, IF ITS NOT THEN IT COULD BE A BLOCKAGE SOMEWERE, WHEN ITS RUNING PLACE YOUR HAND OVER THE BACK OF THE CARB, YOU SHOULD THEN FEEL SOME SUCTION, DOING THIS WILL RESTRICT THE AIR FLOW AND PULL FUEL UP THROUGH THE MAIN JET, ELIMINATING A FUEL SYSTEM PROBLEM ITS HOULD THEN FIRE AS YOU HAVE FORCE CHOKED THAT CYLINDER ONLY, IF IT FIRES QUICKLY REMOVE YOUR HAND AND ALOWE AIR FLOW, IF IT DOES NOT FIRE YOU MAY HAVE A COMPESION PROBLEM, REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG, AND USE A COMPESION TESTER TO CHECK FOR COMPRESION VALUES, ALL THREE SHOULD BE SOME WHAT EVEN, IF YOU DONT HAVE A TESTER PLACE YOUR THUM OVER THE PLUG HOLE RESTRICTING IT COMPLETELY KICK OVER THE MACHINE AND THE COMPRESION SHOULD BE FELT, MAYBE EVEN BLOWING YOUR THUMB OFF THE TOP OF THE CYKINDER HEAD SURFACE, REPEAT THIS FOR ALL THREE CYLINDERS IF THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERRENCE TO THE LESSER YOU CAN THEN SUSPECT MECHANICAL FAILURE

Engine starts, runs rough (like cylinder missing), after a minute will run smooth a few seconds, then back to rough idle. new gas, new oil, gas filter seems clear. What else to check?


Establish which is the 'lazy' cylinder (touch the exhaust pipe header with a WET finger). There will be a marked difference in temperature. Change the plug on the 'lazy' side. If no better, check for a good spark - with engine running on the good cylinder, connect the other plug lead to a spare plug and grund the plug body. A weak/internittant spark will be readily apparant.

If there is a spark problem, replace the coil on the dud side. If not, check for equal compresion on both cylinders.

My 96 sunfire 2.2 l auto idels rough and blows out black smoke when i rev up the motor. i also hesitates on the highwy


Black smoke is from too much fuel, or a mis-firing of the spark plug. Pull all plugs to look to see if one is blackened. If so, this is your troubled cylinder. You can test each spark plug wire with a High energy spark plug tester. If that looks OK, then do a compresion test to see if the mechanical part of the engine seems good.

Have 2 craftsman riding mowers 42"cut one 16,50 kohler engine/the other 17hp. both have the same symptoms won't start tried plugs primed cylinders with starter fluid also gas, seems like they have no spark...


Take spark plug out ,put sparkplug wire on plug and let it lay against block. Watch to see if plug fires. If not change coil. Hope this helps.
