SOURCE: wont start

You don't say what engine type, but there are a couple of possibilities.

1) Is there an electrical connection to the carb float bowl? If so, this is a shut-off solenoid, and will need 12V applied for engine to run. If this checks out, unscrew it and check it moves when voltage applied. If this checkc out, continue ....

2) If there is no connection, or there is and it's functional, check for a stuck float. If gas comes out when you unscrew the bowl nut, it's not stuck! If this checks out .....

3) Remove the carburettor and thoughely clean it. The main jet will be blocked.

Why is Car orator is pouring gas out and is not running ?

I assume you found the contaminates collected in the bottom of the bell housing.
remove the housing again and make sure the float switch is seated properly. If it has stuck in the low position gas will continue to feed and overflow the carb.

Gasoline pouring out od carberator,what is cauing this ? help

You said you replaced the needle, but did you replace the seat that the needle moves in to? If the seat is bad, it may not be sealing well even when the carb is full of gas and the float is pushing the needle in to the closed position. If it is a tecumseh carb, you can buy a kit that comes with a new needle, new seat, new bowl gasket and new bowl nut gasket. The kit is about 3 dollars and should fix you up. The kit i am referring to is part #1606506, but you may want to check and make sure that will work for your model. Regardless, the same pieces that fit your carb should do the trick.

My carb on my toy 86 pickup is not getting gas when I press on the pedal. the acceleartion pump seems to be pumping OK, but no gas is coming thru the line that squirts into the carberator chamber. I can...

something is clogged. Recommend rebuilding the carb. The rebuild kits usually come with instructions--enough to get you thru if you are handy. Or, you could just take the cover off the float bowl right there on the engine and see if you can find the clog. Especially check the jet(s) in the bottom of the bowl. Any more questions--let us know.

2000 cavalier ran out of gas now it wont work

Remove the coveer to the carberator. Pour some gas into the carberator. If it runs you are not getting any gas to the carberator. It may be the fuel pump.

Won't continue running

This unit has a fuel solenoid on the carberator, which opens to allow fuel to the carberator. Check to see if this solenoid opens while cranking.
