Most hondas have a fuel tap near the carbie.hondas need full choke,before theyll start.connect the water to the pump[so you dont damage the pump trying to start it],then release the trigger,releasing the pressure,full choke,full throttle,fresh fuel,should go.you dont need a carb kit,most of the seals are rubber o rings,take bowl off,reove main jet,and take out emulsifier tube,clean small holes with fine wire,etc,and reassemble.good luck

If it's been sitting for 3 years most likely the carb is gummed up. If it's getting spark, you could try a small shot of starting fluid into the carb. If it runs on this you know it's a fuel problem. Best bet would get all the MOTOR data, and buy a carb kit from you local lawn and garden equipment parts supplier. . Remove carburator and clean and install kit. Use sta-bil when you put it away next time, but even that only works about a year or so.

Previous owner had way overfilled crankcase oil. Oil had gotten into carb and clogged air filter. Drained oil to correct level. Ran engine but kept cutting off-see above. Took off carb cover cleaned housing and ran without air filter-ran fine. Unsuccessfully tried to clean air filter with gas-did not work. Apparently, the engine could run just long enough to exhaust the air in the old filter and cut off which is why it would start back up after a few seconds. Bought new air filter-whole thing-about $15 at Carquest. Put in some carb cleaner and installed the new filter and it runs perfectly.

Karcher gas washer will not start...have replaced the spark plug and put fuel stabilizer in the gas tank.


Does it have old gas in it? Fuel stabilizer added to old gas is added too late, must be put in with fresh gas. Drain fuel and replace with new gas. Drain carb. also while tank empty and fuel lines if you can. If lucky you will not need to take carb. apart to clean.

It has not been used for a year. It's full of gas and oil and I can't get it to start. It doesn't even try to start?


Likely the gas it bad you can,t leave fuel in tank over winter with out gas stablizer You have to drian the tank and remove the float bowl from carb and lite that drain then put it back together and it will run with new gas may not run good for first 5 or 10 munites but will smooth out

I have a excell 2600 honda 5hp gc 160.It has not been used for over a year. I empted the old gas out & put in new gas. It will start but when I push the choke in it shuts off.


A couple of things....

Clean the air filter and make sure it is dry.

Check for any springs that have come off of the linkage.

With compressed air, blow out the carburetor.

Clean and clear out the fuel tube from the tank to the carb housing.

Be sure you have proper oil level.

Out of what you have said...it is something in the carburetor....probably needs a flushing with air.

Give it a try and post back!

My pressure washer starts on the first pull but shuts off right away.how come


the carb is dirty, drain the carb bowl sump, then if your lucky get fresh gasoline and clean and refill the gas tank,also get a spray can of carb cleaner into the intake from the parts store and while running & gently spray into intake as not to kill engine,this may help then fresh gas can finish cleanout, otherwise the carb needs to be replaced and being a genset most dont sell a rebuild kit, and are sealed so as to keep rpm's constant on a genset for voltage output and safe levels of power output

Can you put fuel cleaner in your gas tank? my bike runs fine then it stalls and sometimes it won't start. I just bought the bike and the owner had it setting for 2 years in his garage can it be bad gas?


Hello shawn...Yes indeed gasoline can degrade over time. That can lead to a number of problems, ranging from hard starting, to rough running, to no starting at all...If your bike was stored for 2 years the gasoline in it has degraded beyond use. Even if the gas was treated with stabiliser before it was stored...it will still degrade in 10-12 months, if not sooner. I'm suprised your bike will even start. I suggest you drain ALL the gas out of the tank, Rinse and refill with fresh gas, drain your carbs as well...the stale gas has most likely clogged the pilot jets, draining the carb bowls will help.
Go to your parts store and buy a can of "Seafoam" pour 1/2 of it in with your fresh gas..use the other 1/2 on your next tank of gas.
Replace fuel filter after 1st tank, the seafoam will dislodge any debris that was in the fuel tank. It will also clean the combustion chambers and carb jets. Check your carb boots for any cracks or detoration that would cause a vacuum leak. Replace your spark plugs. If your bike is still running rough after this, then the carbs will need to be removed and cleaned and/or rejetted.
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
