Pull the spark plug and spray some wd40 into the hole. then slowly pull the starter. repeat this until the engine pulls smooth. then pull the starter fast a few 10 times to get the excess oil out of the cylinder. reinstal plug and try again

Hi I have a brand new Victa Mustang with the Honda GCV160 4 stroke. Hve fuelled up, added oil, turned on fuel tap but it won't start. Any ideas?


Has it been sitting? Has the gas been sitting? I'm sure the carb is all clogged and gummed up with stale gas and dried ethanol. Buy a new carb, GCV160 carbs are like $20 shipped on eBay.

Scag tiger cat wont start


I would put new plugs in change the oil put a new in line gas filter in. After this tune-up check for spark by leaving the plug out on the moter body crank it over if the spark is hot you know its a gas problem also check for any grounding by starting it at night then looking around to the engine to see if its grounding out. Try these simple things. Do not change anything on the moter without doing these things first. Good luck

My MTD Yard machines riding mower won't start.


Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.

89 honda civic hatchback, car wont start


If your lazy... sounds like you might be in regards to this car than I would at least pull the plugs (inpect them for corrosion or damage and squirt oil in the cylinders not too much, you cant spin the engine after 4years without lubricating the motor. Than see if it combusts using starting fluid, it it does fire then address the fuel system and clean. Good Luck, I think you will be ok but 4 year old gas is like varnish...

Husqvarna 65021 RS lawn mower, > 1 year old will not start


yea i think you scratched the cylinder. if there is not oil at any point then the engine will damage itself. and it wont have good compression. unless you want to attempt to rebuild the engine i would scrap it.
