They have an Automatic Compression Release but not a compression valve as such. All the ACR is for is to make it iasier to spin at low RPM's as when pulling the rope or using the electric starter and as soon as the engine reaches approximately 300 rpm's it automatically releases itself. It is inside the engine and not accessible from the outside.

Motor spinnig freely when trying to start like no compression in motor and wont start after timing belt was fitted wrong in a 1995 toyota landcruiser


if belt was not put on properly car wont run. if its improperly timed valves are opening and closing when they shouldnt be. which inturn will not ,ix air gas and timing spark. when belt is on wrong it will seem like no compression because valves are improperly working. belt must be put on the rite way for your car to run.

No compression and turns over fast, but wont start on terracan 2002


Have you performed a compression check on all cylinders? Possible reasons for no compression are: Blown head gasket, No valve clearance. Valves stuck in open position. Collapsed piston rings from extreme overheating of engine.

Hi have a Husqvarna 410 2000 got spark fuel back fires but wont start checked flywheel is on right valves rock at top dead centre ... ?? but wont start ? kick start only tho ?


If the valves "rock" at TDC, the piston is at TDC EXHAUST, not TDC COMPRESSION. Chances are the engine is flooded. Install a fresh spark plug and go easy on twisting the throttle when starting the bike. Be sure the battery is in good condition. Push the kick lever to just past TDC compression then give a strong kick. Don't try to kick start with the piston going upward on the compression stroke. Be sure the air cleaner is not dirty and you have good gas. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Bike wont start, battery good power to bike tries to start but wont, can push start to get running, whats wrong


If you can push start it it may be a low compression problem. Do a compression test, if its low follow with a leakdown test to determine if it is due to valve or piston leakage on a for stroke. If compression is good, try cleaning the carburators.

Suzuki gn125 wont start. checked carb, cdi, coil. got compression and spark but it wont fire. timing been checked. i have ran out of ideas.


Check the valve adjustment. If a valve is standing open just a little, the compression will be too low to start the engine. Check fuel delivery by dribbling a little gasoline into the carb and try starting the bike. If it starts and runs for a second or two, you're not getting fuel into the cylinders. Check you carb again.

I have a briggs and strattan 18 horsepower engine on my craftsman mower and it wont start, i replaced the starter and it still wont start! It wont even turn over, in fact it binds the starter, but if I...


Have the battery tested at an auto parts store to ensure there is enough power in it. Sounds like it's strong enough to turn the motor with no compression (spark plug removed) but too weak to turn the motor with compression. Also check for loose or corroded wires.

Car wont start


At first, I thought 'coil pack'. But you said it tried to start. So that's out. You might check that you're getting spark just to be thorough.

Did it ever start again after the stall on the interstate?

If not, I'm leaning towards the timing chain.

What happens if your timing chain broke:
  • The timing chain no longer turns the cam(s)
  • The cam(s) no longer open/close the valves
  • The valves become stationary, remaining open or closed depending on the position of the cam(s)
  • If even one valve is open in a cylinder, no compression.
  • No compression, no start.
How do you confirm this without tearing apart your engine?

Do a compression test on all cylinders. If only one or two have compression (or one or more have zero compression), I'm tipping over towards the timing chain.

Have a compression test done.

Hope this helps
