1997 chevy pick up will start when we add gasoline directly in to carburator but after it runs out of gas it dies

this is a fuel injected motor not a carburatored motor.if it only runs when you pour fuel in the throttle body then you have a fuel supply problem that needs to be checked out,you may have a plugged fuel filter and a bad fuel pump.

How do i drain old gas from the motorcycle

you will need to remove ur seat in order to get to the bolt or clip down that holds the rear of the petrol tank to frame.make sure the fuel tap is off & remove the fuel line going from tank to carburator then remove tank & empty the old gas out.there should also be a drain bung/bolt on bottom of ur carburator bowl,undo this let all gas empty out,then re-tighten & then reverse steps to put tank back on.Fill with fresh gas try start,check for any leaks & should be good to go!

Will not start at this time. when i put gas in the carb. it start and run for a few seconds and then it goes dead.

It must be some problem with the fuel line. check and see that there are no kinks in the line, then check the fuel filter if it looks dirty it might be cloging the flow of fuel. Then I would recomend taking the carburator off and cleaning it out, i would try to blow air throgh the jet where the gas tube connects too. this should give fuel to the engine and it should run.

Gas peculating in carburator and running into motor.

there is exhaust that runs from head to head under carburetor . there should be a damper that opens when cold and closes when hot . when it stays open after motor reaches operating temperature gas in bowl boils and gas is a vapor instead of a mist and causes motor to run lean .

86 CJ7 will run but will not idle.

Clean the idle control valve. located just inside the hole where you remove the aircleaner duct work. use brake cleaner or carburator at about 1200 rpms and spry directly into the valve.
