Sounds like the carb is badly clogged internally. If you can remove it yourself, you can soak it overnight in a can of carb cleaner. But keep in mind some of the internal passageways in the carb are as fine a human hair and soaking may not work, it which case go to plan B, new carb. Last resort you could try to find cleaners small enough to get in the passageways of the carb, I've heard of people using wire brush bristles for example. Today's gas is terrible, it does not take long to gum up the carb, if it sits for any time.

It is a diaphram carb. Doe's the primer **** straight gas or does it have air bubbles in it? If it has bubbles in it then it is a leak in the fuel line.
If not then Unhook the intake fuel line and pump the bulb until all of the gas is out of it. Then pour the gas out of the tank and rinse it out with new gas. Pour in new gas and it should be ok.

SOURCE: my pressure washer doesnt seem to run properly. i

Ok the first thing you need to check is if the spark is fireing. To do this you need to remove the plug plug it into the spark plug cap hold it on the cylinder head pull the engine over it will pull easy and see if you have a blueish spark jumping the gap on the plug . If you do its not an electrical prolbem . Then put the plug back and plug the ignition wire back and remove the air cleaner see if it will start then .witch the choke on . If it still won't start try pouring a small amount of fuel derictly into the carbuator if it runs for any time at all or even starts to fire then its a fuel issue eighter bad fuel or clogged filter or carbuator needs to be cleaned. You can even put a small amuont of fuel right into the spark plug hole then put the plug back in and it should start You need spark fuel and air for any engine to run if you have all three its automatic it will at least fire Good luckwith this

SOURCE: Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas

if it wont start, check for spark.how you do that,ok take the spark plug wire out put it close to the sparkplug(use some gloves or something to insulate your self from get electric shot from the spark) find some one who pull the start rope, if you dont see any spark between wire and spark plug, tehre its not spark ,it will never start.you will have to remove the start recoil on the botton is like a damper whitch will have to be remove also ,on botton of it its like a coil whitch with the rotation of the damper when you pull the starter rope provoke the spark and send it to spark plug along with the gas combution get the engine started.that coil some time goes bad and have to be change.if you have electric starter. check the starter also.good luck

I have a 2003 suzuki gsxr 1000 and I changed the spark plugs but it still won't start and I tried putting in Sea Foam but it still won't stay started without spraying in ether(started fluid)


If it runs, or at least wants to run when using the starter fluid, then I would think that it is a fuel delivery problem. This could be a carb problem (blocked jets, incorrect settings etc.) or that the fuel is not getting to the carb (blocked filter, line, faulty fuel tap). Make sure plugs, air filter, fuel filter and fuel itself are all as they should be as often it is the little things that are the main cause of problems.

Why does my karcher powerwasher starts and dies after 2 minutes


dirty carb , clean carb, install a fuel cut off valve ( or start using it if you already have one) when you are done washing, turn off the fuel valve and continue spraying water until the engine stops. That will empty the carburetor bowl and the carb will stay clean until you want to use it again.

On the Carb there are usually two needle valves, doing one at a time and carefully counting half turns. Using a small screwdriver start turning clockwise one of the screws in and count how many half turns you turn until tight. Might be 1 1/2 (half turns) to 3 1/2 (half turns) After it is tight reverse the screw and spring and remove it. Blow out the hole with a stray or air pump or wd40 spray can with straw tip. Reinstall until tight then open the amount of half turn you recorded. Do the same with the other needle valve.

This sounds like the rubber tipped inlet needle is leaking on its seat, you can try another needle, however if the seat is pitted it will need a new carb, you need to do a pressure test on the fuel inlet of the carb, with a small pressure ( 2 psi approx ) there should be no leakage

You can eliminate the motor by unbolting the pump from it and then if it will start the problem is with the pump or the unloading valve.If it does not start with the pump removed then you check for spark and get the carb cleaned or have a kit put in it.If it does start then check to see if the pump turns freely,if so disassemble the unloader valve and clean and lube it so that the pump and motor can relieve the pressure it needs to when the trigger is not engaged,if the pump can't be easily turned by hand then then pump needs to come apart,dealership should do this.

It starts & then immediatly shuts off..... but will keep running if i spray ether into the carb not a plugged injector, not a fuel pump, and the rails are getting fuel


check the fuel pressure in the rails. There may be a low pressure that will not allow the spray to be misted enough. It could be a clogged fuel filter also.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

PRI setting allows fuel to flow from the tank to the carbs whether engine is running or not while ON requires that there is vacuum (engine running) for the fuel cut-off valve to allow fuel to flow (safety feature).

To determine if fuel is reaching the carbs, loosen the drain screw at the bottom of the carb's bowl. Fuel should leak out of the drain hose. For safety reasons, ensure no open flame and the fuel is collected in a suitable container. Another that could be tried is to turn off fuel from tank, temporarily remove the drain hoses from each of the carbs and spray the inside of the bowl through the drain hose nipple using carb cleaner. It would be easier to use the narrow tubelike nozzle that comes with the carb cleaner.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
