Question about Traxxas Rc Revo Nitro Monster Truck

Open Question

My Revo 3.3cc won't start... It's not at TDC, it's not flooded and I removed the glow plug and added some after run oil to no avail. What should I do next? The Revo has only about 12 runs on it and during the last run it ran perfectly...

SOURCE: my revo is getting fuel light on start remote are

Hi
You've checked the glow plug externally to see the wire get red? If so, as long as you've got fuel and fire then it has to start. My guess here is that you have either a bad glow plug, low batteries, fuel air leak or clogged pressure line. Put a charged battery into the starter. Remove the glow plug and try to start - fuel should spurt up through the glow plug opening. Now connect the glow plug and touch it to the engine. Try to start and you should see the glow plug wire glow red. (do this only for a second. Now disconnect the pressure tap from the muffler and try to start. All else fails, replace the fuel line to the carb and the pressure tap. Your carburetor can leak air through the rubber gasket . Also, Traxxas fuel tanks have a cracking problem. Good luck

Engine not moving, looks like the piston got stack on top tdc.


This is a typical Issue. You can try turning the flywheel by hand to see if you can get the piston to move from TDC, If that does not work you will probably have to remove Glow-Plug and insert something Brass, Wood, Plastic Strong enough to push on piston but as mentioned not a screwdriver etc. due to possibility of damage to piston.
Then you can push the piston down.
If using a dowel of wood or plastic and you cannot push the piston down you can gently tap on the device you decide to use "LIGHTLY" and it should move off of TDC.

Revo 3.3...engine doesnt stay on...


Could be a couple of things. Firstly the glow plug may need changing or youre running slightly rich. If you was replacing the glow plug you should retune the engine anyway. When the fuel is entering in the engine where the glow plug is theres either to much fuel and flooding plug out or the plug is not up to the job of burning the fuel. Replace plug and retune. You have had car for two years so guessing you know how to tune the engine.

3.3 revo hard to start after started it will not idle and when it dies it does not want to restart. This did not happen until I drve it thru alot of wet grass last year


Hi
2 stroke engines are very simple. If there's fuel (under pressure) and a spark it will run. Check the glow plug by trying to start it with glow plug removed but still connected and touching the engine body. If the little center wire glows bright red, then it's OK. Only do this for a second or so. If the plug is OK then it has to be a fuel problem. Traxxas has a long history of cracked gas tanks. Good luck

I have a revo 3.3 nitro and im having problems starting it im am indoors about 70 and im flooding the engine i go through the steps for a flooded engine but the easy start won't turn i let it cool...


i'm new to revos two but i just bought a couple and had the same problem with one of them, make sure your glow plug is ok or just replace it and adjust your high speed needle, i'm in oregon i had to richen mine about 1/4 turn. i also noticed both of the models i got were set differently from the factory. there's info on traxxas website on where the factory needle settings should be.

The glow plug could be bad. If the motor turns over and is getting fuel I would replace the glow plug.

The thing you put on the back of the truck will not work only the motor lite comes on but i no its not the glow plug


Have you charged the battery in the EZ Start wand? If you have is the motor turning over at all? If the motor is turning over but not firing it could be the glow plug. If the motor trying to turn over but won't, the engine might be flooded. If it is flooded remove the glow plug and turn the truck upside down. Fuel will run out of the engine. If fuel runs out of the engine, put the truck back down on its wheels. Cover the engine head with a rag and turn the engine over with the EZ Start wand with the glow plug still out. This will remove all excess fuel from the engine. Reinstall glow plug and try to start again.
