Drain your Gas out and mix up fresh Gas Mix and then it should run, Your old gas is only good for about 4-6 weeks because of the ethanol in it., you might have to possibly clean your carb. and change fuel filter, but would try fresh mix gas first

What causes oil to come out of exhaust. was running fine 3 weeks ago.


ethanol gas for one thing. When it is left to set it breaks down the gasoline. You have a two cyc. engine (gas and oil mix) Clean the plug then take the unit and shake the unit to mix the gas back up. This may not work but its worth a try. Or drain the unit completely use non-ethanol gas make a new batch and replace plug.

I have a Craftsman 2-cycle blower/vac and its only 3 years old and have changed out the spark plug and fresh mixed gas and still won't start. I need some help anyone know?


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage. May need to clean or replace carburetor.

1982 Yamaha Seca Turbo (XJ650LJ) Had the carbs


Mine was stored for 20 years, I ended up replacing the seat and needles, cleaning them thoroughly and when I tried starting it, nothing!! No gas was going to the carbs, it turned out to be my gas pump, it was seized by the old gas remains 'varnish' so I had to clean it numerous times, soaked it in gas cleaner (short period at a time 15 minutes or so, being a very powerful cleaner, you cannot leave it for long without causing greater problems, thus I was able to get the pump going by boosting it with my car batterie, having more cranking amps directly to the pump, the pump was able to release itself from the old crusty varnish.

It keeps stalling on me


This could be one of many problems:
To start, is this the first time you have used the unit in a while? Did you store it with gas in the saw? How old is the gas that you are putting in? The factory call center will tell you that today's gas is only good for about 30 days before you should use it. If it is old gas, get new gas, make a new mix and try again. If that doesn't work, check your air filter. If the air filter looks good, the carb either needs a good cleaning or an adjustment. The newer poulan saws require a special tool to make the adjustment. If this is a newer saw (1 year or less), 1 carb adjustment is covered under the warranty. You can find the list of authorized service centers on poulan's website. Without a model number, I can't help you with specifics on where the air filter is, etc. I hope this helps.

13 horse Honda presure washer (landa) won't start. Been sitting for several years. Checked plug which looks new.. Maybe wrong one? Will sypone old gas and replace. What about plug, fuel filter and air...


you can try and remove the old gas the carburetor and perhaps the fuel filter are most likly fouled with gunk from the old gas. When gas sits, over time it forms a thick gummy deposit that can clog carburetors, and anything else. try fresh gas with some carburetor cleaner (NOT the kind in the spray can) mixed in. It may need to have the carburetor rebuilt or replaced.

Lately, whenever it rains, my 1998 chevy blazer wont start/won't run. the engine turns over, but it won't run. after 2 or 3 days it will fire up like nothing was wrong with it to begin with. any...


Whenever I had this problem, it was always cured with a new set of GOOD spark plug wires. Not generic set off the parts store shelf. Get some moisture removal spray and put it on both ends, the coil and the plug, before putting the wires on. Do one wire at a time so you do not get them mixed up. I do not think you have a distributor or a cap. If you do replace it also as it is over 20 years old.

Starts ok but runs slow and with a pulseing rythem. primer bulb is full.


It may be time to get the carburetor rebuilt. But first I would try mixing up some fresh fuel mixture. I have been told by manufacturers that gas over 30 days old is considered bad gas. I have seen this same problem with unit that have bad gas in them. Fresh gas is what you make today not something out of the can from the garage.
Good Day.
