Remove the plug and lead, touch it against the body of the engine and check there is a spark when you pull the starter rope. You may need an assistant to help keep the plug stay in contact with the engine (make sure they don't touch any metal!).
The float bowl acts like a toilet cistern keeping the fuel at a constant level. Remove the float bowl and check that gas flows freely into it and stops when the float is pushed upwards. If fuel doesn't flow, the inlet valve may be blocked due to a blocked filter. If the fuel doesn't shut off, this could flood the carburetor.

Why wont that lawn mower start?

Buy a can of engine starter (ether). Prime engine, spray a little ether into the carburator (air filter) and pull start.Works great.

MLB Ther Show freezes up on rtts on ps3

Its not the hard drive.. I'm guessing your game works fine but either freezes on past balls or when you try to advance from spring training to the regular season..right? Somehow the new patch messed it all up..been trying to find an answer too..
My best guess is we have to wait for the next patch now...sorry

I keep gettin error " 80010514" only when I play Madden 2011. All ten of my other games work just fine. Is it the game or does my system need an update to play Madden?

i have the exact same problem except with red dead redemption, all my other games work fine, but rdr has this error code, im fairly sure it has something to do with the hard drive though. when i first got the game that code came up, the second time i tried to play it worked fine, it seemed to be like a 10% chance it would work however when the patch was released it wouldnt work at all, as soon as i pressed the disc icon the message immdiatly displayed whereas before it would at least try and launch. so i went into the utility and deleted the rdr file. now its back to a 10% chance of working, however i cant go online with it and when it does work it usually ends up going all weird and stuff like people with no faces and horse riding glitch

Im trying to connect my nentendo to the web im looking at SSID, WEP Key auto obtain, how is this done

Look At Your Wireless Router And On The Back Of It, It Should Say WEP Key And About 25 Numbers After It Type Those Into The DSi And Test The Connection If Everything Went Right It Should Connect Succesfully. ( If There Is Weather Like Rain Outside It May Show The 3 Bars Connecting But Then Backs Out Dont Be Alarmed You Just Lost The Connection Due To Rain )

Fifa 09 manager mode crashes on simulation screen

DUDE- I have played 09 on xbox 360 through 4 seasons three different times with liverpool and each time the same thing happens. it happened to me a 4th time last night. so today i came up with the resolve to solve it. AND I DID!!! basically, if you conduct contract negotiations after the league season is over but you are still playing UEFA/ECC games it will 100% crash your game once you get into the next season once the trade season begins. If this happens it will corrupt your save file permanently destroying the future integrity of the game, like a digital Russian Roulette. To be sure this doesnt happen to your team's save file, keep a back up file safe that you won't adjust right before the season ends. at the end of the season a contract negotiation screen comes up. you need to make sure that when you go to the contract negotiation screen everyone listed on your team who has less than 12 months left on their contract is listed with "the computers" offer to be resigned, therefore extending their own contract based on their terms. you will see all sorts of wild offers, especially if you have been under paying your players. As per the Bosman ruling these guys are treated as free agents during the transfer window, so the game is modeling REAL life. However, if you sign them after the season is over but while you are still playing euro competitions then this will corrupt the save file for free agents. This crashes the game, maybe perhaps because some other team is trying to sign that "Bosman ruling" player on the computers own terms, but he improperly still belongs to your club for less than 12 months. WOOOOOT gonna play another 4 seasons. pass this on. Keep backup saved files at the mid point between transfer windows and right before the regular season games end based on your schedule. ENJOY!!!

I think my wii fan isnt working

Either your fan has come unplugged from the motherboard, or your fan just died. If your under warranty, send it in. Always take advantage of the warranty. If not, try checking your local game stores to see if they do console repairs.
