Jerry is correct the compression release is ajdacent to the spark plug. If it pops the saw fired and the release closed (what it is supposed to do).
Read page 22 here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2009/HOUS2009_1151382-49.pdf
Excerpt follows: "Pull the starter handle (D): Pull the starter handle with your right hand and pull out the starter cord slowly until you feel a resistance (as the starter pawls engage) then pull firmly and rapidly until the engine fires. Push in the choke control as soon as the engine fires which can be heard through a "puff" sound. Keep on pulling the cord powerfully until the engine starts."
Continuing with the choke closed causes flooding. Please read the "Warm Engine" too it is slightly different.

My 2000 honda civic wont turn over and has no spark but the ignition coil and modual are both fine


Won't turn over? Do you mean the starter won't crank the engine over?

Or the engine cranks over and won't start, and you have tested for spark when cranking and have no spark? And then you have tested the coil and ignition module, and they tested out good? Am I on the right page here? If so, maybe the next thing to check would be the crank position sensor. The ecu (computer) signals the ignitor (ignition module) when to initiate spark after it digests the signals from the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor.

Could it be the EGI Main fuse?


In a crank no start condition it is always important to find the cause before throwing parts at a car. The only things required for an engine to run are; fuel, spark and air. At this point it sounds like you have no spark at all. I would begin chasing the circuit back from there.

On to the egi, pull an injector out keep it connected and try to start the car if fuel comes out you’re good. If not you may have a problem with that relay as they have been known to give issues.

But as you state you have no spark when cranking I would start there.

2005 dodge neon cranks but wont start


Hello, If it just cranks and not starting at all can be several things to look at. A engine to run needs fuel, spark, compression, air. BUT here is what I would first do, if you check to see if you have spark, and fuel, most likely it could be the crank sensor. If no codes come up on dash. There is so many things it could be. Just take one step at a time. See if your getting fuel, if you smell fuel, like flooded, then its getting fuel, otherwise could be fuel pump not working, If pulling a plug and keep it in plug sleeve and set next to medal screw on block, and have someone turn key, to see if you see spark. If spark then getting spark, Then were back to a couple things.... Crank sensor went out, that will cause to crank and not start, if cam sensor went out, it would still run, but just like ****. Next if still cranks and wont start, could be the timing chain missed a slot, which means could of bent a valve or stuck valve. Dont panic yet, just like I said start with first and always fuel, and also dont forget fuse panel for fuel relay fuse or fuel pump fuse to see if good. Keep me posted as i will try and help you along the way, Mike

Chevrolet Tacuma Won't Start


Hi Paul brad hear, if you have spark plugs working i.e. sparking and fuel coming into the engine something has got to happen, many not start but it would backfire cough because when those two things come together something always happens. OK The other thing that would keep it from starting, the timing change or gear has broken and the cam is not turning. Im not sure if the Tacoma has a chance or gears. good luck

My 1996 850 volvo wont start the engine turns over but wont crank


ok, turning over and cranking are the same thing, what your saying is it won't fire, so , 2 things make a motor fire, electric and fuel, so starting with the easiest remedy , remove the distributor cap, and inspect the rotor and connection points that are inside the cap, check for any debris built up , sometimes you can clean them good enough to get the car to fire up, if it does , normally you would replace them , ( not that expensive) remove the number one cylinder spark plug, and once out put the spark plug wire back on it, ( your going to need help with this step) with insulated pliers , hold the plug and place the bottom of the plug against a grounding point (any bolt on the motor will do,, but try and keep it away from the carb as its Hopefully going to spark) have someone try and turn the car over as if to start it, look for spark at the end of the plug, if you have spark,, replace the plug and try and start the car , if it won't,, move onto the fuel problem, you need to make sure that the car is getting fuel, remove the fuel line to the carb turn the key for a second, you should see fuel splashing out, if yes ,, you should be able to start the car , if no,, check the fuel filter first , then the fuel pump,

I have a 2000 kia sportage that cranks but will not start what might it be?


When en engine won't start, there could be a number of things wrong. An engine requires air, fuel, and spark to start. You need to start by checking for spark. Take out one of the spark plugs and plug it back into the wire. Have somebody else turn the key while you hold the plug up to something metal on the engine, right next to the spark plug hole will be fine. You should see a bright blue spark, if you don't then you probably need to replace the spark plugs. You can do this same thing with any of the spark plugs. If you don't have spark on any of the plugs, get back with me and we'll go from there.

Missfire cyclinder 1


You are going to need to borrow some tools or go out and buy some to run some quick tests. If the misfire is in cylinder 1 ONLY, the easiest thing to do is to check spark, (spark plug tester).
  1. Put the spark tester into the plug wire and have someone crank it over. Make sure the plug tester is grounded to the block or some metal bracket, otherwise you could damage your coil. IF you don't have spark it could be due to a bad ignition coil. If you have spark at the wire and not the plug then you have a bad plug. IF you have spark coming from the coil wire but not the spark plug wire then you have a bad spark plug wire.
  2. If you see there is spark, the next step is to pull the plug out and test the plug itself. Plug the spark plug into the wire you just tested and pull the fuse (or relay) for the ignition or fuel pump. This will keep the car from starting, but will still allow you to see if the plug is firing.
  3. Also check the plug to see what condition it is in. Has the car been serviced recently, check all of the things that have had serviced.
  4. If you have spark the next thing is compression test. Screw in the compression tester to the spark plug hole in the head. Crank over the engine 3 times. Read the specification and look it up to see what the specification should be. Anything between 115-150 should be acceptable. IF you have any doubts test other cylinders to see what they are running.
  5. The last thing is to check for fuel, that is if you have found spark and compression. Locate the fuel injection port, on some VW models they are not used so consult a service guide if you're not sure.

1994 honda accord will start fine for weeks then all of a sudden won t start but if i turn on the key put it in gear an pop the clutch it will start but sometimes it will start ok sometimes it won,t


Hi,from the clues you give I guess that the starter motor is in need of a service (worn brush gear) I presume that when it does not start that the engine does not make a cranking noise.
If the engine is cranking but failing to fire up, then it could be anything from the fuel pressure pump to the engine control system. there is a lot of clever stuff going on when you start your engine. Some simple things you should try first. Check visually that all vacuum hoses and wiring is secure and in good visual order( dodgy looking wires are prone to intermittent failure!... Do this next time it fails to start and recheck after gently adjusting ? wd 40 may ease problem temp. Also check service of spark plugs especially correct gap.
Make a note of engine temp/ and air temp. loose wires are usually more loose in cold mornings!.. starting enrichment may not be sufficient with a wide plug gap. Check battery for full power output on starting. will it pull the car on the starter /

What coul be keeping my 1986 honda civic from starting? The plugs all spark, the fuel pump gives gas to the carb, Ive changed all plugs cap and rotor and have tried spraying starter fluid directly into...


It cranks really good sputters a little and makes some loud pops but it will not turn over? FYI:Cranking and turning over are the same thing. When was the last time it ran. The gas could be bad. Did you get new plug wires as well. Try testing the distributor, remove a spark plug, plug it back into the wire, and touch the threads to ground and crank the engine. It should spark. Keep your fingers away, that's high voltage. Remove all spark plugs, spray some starting fluid in each cylinder, then crank the engine with the plugs out. This will clean any debris from the cylinders. Engines need backpressure to run properly, a major exhaust leak hence the popping, could cause it to not run. If you can get it started try to keep it going, full throttle, keep in the starting fluid, it could just need to get warm. I used to have one of them and they don't like it when they're cold.
