Troy bilt mower ran fine then died and now it wont start back. It has fire and a new spark plug. It gets fuel past the filter. It starts if i put a small amount of gas into the intake. Whats wrong? My...


Remove the air filter and set aside.
Take a can of carburetor cleaner and spray the inside of the carburetor.
Let it set for a moment and then try starting the engine. It should run a few seconds. Repeat. When it starts squirt a small shot of cleaner in the carburetor to keep it running. That should remove the varnish the gas leaves as it evaporates over the winter.

If it still won't keep running then there is trash in the float bowl plugging the needle valve seat and the jets.

1) Turn off the gas or remove the gas line and plug it with a small screw or stick to keep it from leaking out of the gas tank.
2) Look on the bottom of the bowl for a nut .
3) Remove the nut and drop the float bowl.
4) Carefully remove the pin holding the float and needle valve assembly.
5) Take the carburetor cleaner with the straw it comes with and spray every hole in the carburetor to clean the jets . (up through the needle valve seat, down top of the carburetor , see a hole, spray it with the cleaner.)
6) Clean the float bowl.
7) Reassemble and make sure the gas isn't leaking and try to start it again.

Carb's can be cleaned, hope you didn't throw money away on a new one for dirt.
You may have dirt in the gas tank getting to the carb. If you can, remove the bowl drain, (At the bottom) and see if there is sediment in it.(dirt)

After 1 season it ran great ,slowly died now it wont start


So many possibilities, so little data... <grin>

When you say "clean gas", do you mean that you added "fresh" gas, or that you emptied the tank, and refilled it with "fresh" gas?

Try this:

a. remove the "float bowl" screw, and put a regular "bowl" or pan underneath to catch ALL of the gas as it comes out.

b. if the gas is totally "clear", then it (probably ain't the gas), but... if it's "yellow", it's old and/or contaminated; alternatively, if there's any water (which may appear as a grey-ish liquid) then it's contaminated; also, don't forget to check the gas from your "storage" can, the same way...

c. re-install the the screw, and put some *FRESH* gas in the tank.

d. pull the spark-plug, and clean (or replace) it.

e. prime it, and crank it, and it should start right up.

Wont start after 6 mos. I changed the spark plug, drained & added fresh gas, checked the fuel filter... Kicks over fine. Ran for 4 seconds, then it died. Always ran & started great before.


With a new plug and fresh gas it should start. Check to make sure there isn't a kill switch turned off or that the gas petcock from the tank to the carb is on.

How did you check the fuel filter? Disconnecting it from the fuel line that goes to the carb is the best way, making sure the gas is turned on under the tank. Bleed off a little gas into a can or something just to make sure the filter isn't plugged.

The last thing I'd do is take off the air filter and spray a little starting fluid in the carb. It may start and run several times if there is old gas in there somewhere. Remember the bowl on the carb is probably still full of old gas. After some fresh fuel reaches the plug it should start and continue to run.

(You might drain the bowl on the carb of ols gas before you go any further)

Good luck!

2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250R Wont Start


Gas in Europe ain't as good as gas stateside. But lets say the gas is okay. Got a fully charged battery? Put a 1 or 2 amp charger on the battery for an hour. Not starting yet? Check for a good spark on one of the sparkplugs.. Next check for water condendsate in the small bowl that makes up part of the petcock ( Fuel valve ). Dump the bowl then turn on the gas valve for a moment. Got gas flowing from the tank? If you have spark and gas and still no ride with the wind in your hair then shut off the gas valve and remove the drain screw from the carbs. Water may have collected there also. Still no go? Take it to a dealer, you have done what you can.
