    Make sure your choke is off, and that you have fresh fuel and correct fuel mixture with a good spark plug.

    What brand saw is it ?

    Please let me know how it goes.

Sometimes when I drive several miles and then stop. When I try to start it again, the engine turns over but won't start It is like it floods itself.


Have you tried to hold the gas pedal to the floor ? Ford's have clear flood mode strategy programmed into the PCM , if you hold pedal to the floor the engine computer disables the fuel injectors . If it is flooded holding to the floor will clear it out .

1997 sl2 satun started with rough idol now won't start . cranks over and floods. has new fuel filter & air filter


Check the fuel pressure regulator. Pull the vacuum hose off it, If it smells of gas, Replace the regulator. Diaphragm broke and is flooding the engine threw that vacuum line. You'll also need to replace the spark plugs. Gas will foul them out also.

Engine flooding


Check the fuel pressure. The pressure regulator may have gone bad and is delivering too much pressure to the fuel rail, thereby flooding the engine.

Fluids out when you try to start


double posted, and fluids? you mean FLOODS.
see previous post,
there are other ways to flood any motor.
one other is (iSC /IAC devices are stuck closed) gummed up.
this cause no starting air, no air means flooding.
I cant see your car, and see if starting with 10% throttle solves the flood, but you can.
also WOT cranking, cuts all fueling and can not flood and will start any flooded engine.
but if this still floods,now, that is bad injectors. leaking.
WOT cuts injection pulses dead, and no fuel flows, cranking.
knowing these facts on EFI makes finding causes easy.

My aprilia 125 moped will not start, there is a spark at the plug, stinks of flooded fuel, it's soaking the plug when kicked over, what's problem?


Sounds like the engine is flooded with gas.Turn the fuel off if you can.Remove the spark plug and move the wire away from the spark plug hole.Now turn the engine over like your trying to start it.See if gas comes out spark plug hole if yes engine is flooded.If it is flood that bad your exhaust will have fuel in it also.You should get a new spark plug before trying to start it again.If gas does not come out the plug hole.Install the new plug and try starting it with the fuel off.Hope this helps.

98 camaro will crank but wont start after i let it sit for about 15 minutes and try again it will turn over but it doesnt always do this it only does it every now and then.


You could have a leaking fuel injector that is causing it not to start after it sits for a while the engine cylinder may become flooded with fuel and when you go to start it again it will not crank because the engine is hydrolocked. Check the oil to see if it smells like fuel. also remove the spark plugs to see if they are fuel soaked. If you find one. You'll know that's your problem and you will need to change your injectors

Car is getting harder to start


If you think the engine is flooded hold the gas pedal about half way down, while you try to start it. Be ready to release the pedal as soon as it starts. That tells the computer that you think the engine is flooded and it will cut back on the fuel delivery, until the engine starts. You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator. I'm sorry I don't know too much about Subaru's.

The engine on my Sprint 375 floods when trying to start


Check the float in the carb. bowl for gumming and clean your carb.. If you haven't done so already. Or you can try running a fuel treatment through your fuel. That may help you with your flooding issues. Good luck.
