I have a 2003 polaris/330 trail boss with a fuel problem. i had carb rebuilt at a shop .cleaned, new needle & seat installed. new plug, carb vent/ equalizer cleaned, tank vent clean. starts fine, runs...

there's a vent on the carb they might've have missed, the line could be clogged. insects and mud get in them. plus it could be the petcock on the tank. take it out and make sure the screens, are cleaned etc.

No gas to spark plug on atv

carb float/needle sticking opening the carb drain will provide evidence if fuel is reaching fuel bowl, if fuel is present then i would suspect the carb is gummed up and it will need to be cleaned ( all jets/passages ) another area could be that the gas cap vent/line is plugged not allowing fuel to flow by gravity feed.

Polaris 500 x2 starts fine, but when you apply

I have a 2003 sportsman 500 ho thats doing the same thing. It starts fine everytime and idles fine but when you push the throttle it stalls and sounds like its loading up with fuel. Also its fouling the plugs when it does this b/c I can take them out and they are jet black (dry). I checked the spark and the spark appears to be good. So now I'm in the process of taking the carb apart to see if there is anything wrong with it and to clean it. If this doesn't fix it then I don't know. I really don't want to replace the coil b/c its like 150 bucks.

I have an 03 polaris 330 magnum 4x4 it worked fine than one day i had to keep the choke on to keep it running took carb apart cleaned all jets etc started it back up worked fine then it didnt put choke on...

Sound like the needle and seat are dirty. Also check the fuel strainer / filter for debris. Usually if the needle and seat are dirty so is the filter / strainer & bowl.

Needle and seat item(s) 24 and 24 original factory Parts manual under carb. at the dealer:

(called float valve in description)

Sounds like the float valve is either not closing or is dirty and not allowing carb to fill to the proper level. i.e causes fuel starvation AND carb over filling intermittently. You can clean the needle and still have a bad seat for the needle.

Find and replace or clean the fuel filter also. If your carb has a manifold and nut on the side of it for the fuel manifold remove the nut (actually a bolt type thing) and clean the strainer inside the manifold.

Thanks for using FixYa!
