Check for blue, snappy spark at the plug (gapped at 0.020"). If weak or nothing, remove the flywheel cover to expose the ignition module. Check the module gap with a thin business card--turn the flywheel magnets under the module poles, insert the card into the gap, loosen the module screws, and allow the module to contact the magnets, then tighten the screws. Turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card. Recheck for spark--if ok, try for engine start. If still no spark, remove the ignition switch wire from the module and retry for spark. If still nothing, replace the module. Install per the above instructions. Hope this helps!

I have a psa 225 echo weed eater. The engine readily starts but will only rev up using the choke lever back and forth. No power. What's my problem?


Carb or filter
. replace fuel filter in tank while checking both pickup and return fuel lines.
remove carb and disassemble cleaning all parts with carb cleaner and some soft air blow . look for small screen its round and about 1/4 round in carb these are so small that the gas that's available gells and plugs the openings . try to use non-ethonal high octane gas and use echo 2cycle oil .

Echo PB 251 won't run. replaced plug, gas, fuel filter, air filter. took carb a part, and cleaned with carb cleaner, used the compressed cleaner to clean out venturis/ports.


Wow! with all you have done it should run. Be sure the switch is on but if you are getting spark, it should be on. I would take it to the echo place for service.

There is a vent in the tank, it is situated on the right hand side of the tank, close to where the fuel hose exits the tank, the early vent looks like a round white pellet, the later vent is a white plug with a nipple on the top, the later vent will just pull out with long nose pliers, the early vent has to be extracted useing a self tapping screw, this of course will destroy the vent.

Replace fuel filter after cleaning tank thouroughly, to clean tank remove fuel line at carb. Drain all fuel then leave line loose until you flush tank with carb. Cleaner then blow out tank with compressed air. Now install new fuel filter and check your fuel can for trash and water better yet just add fresh fuel.

your carb needs to be cleaned/rebuilt,the jets are clogged from the old fuel,if the fuel that was in the tank had a really bad smell,then the fuel is bad,and what was in the tank is also inside of carb.(carb kit).

Bike not starting at all. sometimes it starts after continous kicks but no use .agian the same problem.


I would suggest that you cleanyour carburetors.
To tell if they need cleaned, spray carb clean in the back of the carb and the kick it over, if it starts right up, then you need to clean your carbs., Drain your gas tank and install a new fuel filter, and put new gas in the tank too.

If it doesn't start right up on the carb cleaner, then check to see if you are getting spark.
If you have spark, then test your compression.
Compression should be at least 125-145 psi but not less than 100 psi to run.

If you don't have spark, pull power wire off coil and see if you have power to the coil.
If you do have power then your coil is bad.
if you don't have power, make sure your on/off switch is working. check wires

As long as you have good compression, good fuel and good spark, that motor will start.

Pull out the plugs and see if they are dry, or wet or , black and sooty.
If dry - no fuel
if wet - no fire or misfire
if black and sooty - clean & check gap or replace with new ones.

Honda GC160/ 5hp will not start


Two things here, Pull the line on the fuel tank off replace the in line fuel filter and replace the gas pump bulb if it is bad it will not allow the gas to stay in the carburetor. Also pull plug and see if it has good compression by putting you finger on top of it and move the flywheel till you get compression. Also the governor may be sticking it's connected to the carburetor and the arm that goes inside the engine. But the filter first.
