Are you getting gas from the tank to the carb?
Maybe pluged fuel line...

Also pull bowl off carb and pull out main jet if it has one and make sure that you can feel the compressed air coming thru the main jet, plus also check idle cirurt the same way...

How to starting fluid air intake carburator

Not a great idea if you haven't done this before. You can start a fire, or even ruin your engine. However, in general, remove the air cleaner and spray starter fluid into carb (or throttle body) about one second (one Mississippi) and try to start. If it starts and continues to run, rock on. If it runs a few seconds and dies, you have ither issue and are not getting fuel delivery. Seek help!

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

Generator Won't start

Gap the plug at .030 What is most likely the main problem is whatever gas sat in the carb. Even with fresh gas there will be some old gas still in the float bowl. You may be able to drain the bowl and be OK but I have a feeling that the carb will need to come off and be disassembled and cleaned properly. You can try spraying carb cleaner (I dislike starting fluid as it is too volatile and carb cleaner does just as well in this instance) into the carb/intake. Remove the air filter, open the choke, and spray the carb cleaner in through that way if possible. You can actually keep an engine running by spraying with short bursts. Even by just spraying once you should be able to get the engine to start. If it does start but then will not stay running without spraying more into the engine then it is a carb problem.

My 92 maxima se just died as i was driving it.i put gas in it and it ran for 2 miles then died again

could be a fuel pump. hammer on the gas tank and see if it tries to start. if not then spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air intake and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds if so your looking at a bad fuel pump most likely.

Where do I spray the starter fluid (air intake?) for Chrysler Silhouette. Ran out of gas and it seems carburetor needs starter fluid to kick it..not sure where air intake is locater.. or where to open carb...

there is a large tube that goes to your throttle body (you do not have a carb), remove it and spray there-be careful, starter fluid is highly explosive, spray 2 or 3 short bursts into the top of the throttle body opening, and install the tube (you don't have to tighten the clamp). You may have to repeat this a few times, if you can only get the car to run for a few seconds 3 or 4 times, and it will not run on it's own, you have a fuel delivery problem, and no amount of starter fluid is going to fix it.

It ran but smoked then stoped and would not start

Chances are oil is in the combustion chamber and carb. Spray some carb cleaner in the carburetor throat and around the perimeter of the carb then pull out the spark plug and spray some inside the hole, proceed to pull the start cord a few times then reinstall the spark plug then start the unit up it may continue to stall over and over until the oil burns off. you may want to try reving up the motor as best you can while you block off the carb intake (you must remove air cleaner to do this)this will stall the motor restart, blocking off the air intake of the carb as it runs clears out clogged passages in carb by causing a extreme vacuum in the carb throat, have a can of starting fluid handy to get the unit started if it becomes flooded, also the way to get a flooded engine started is to open the throttle all the way while starting then hold it open until it revs up. If it becomes flooded do not choke repeat these steps it should eventually clear out and run.
