SOURCE: Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start

It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run


Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

2002 mustang the motor turns over and it gets gas but it wont run gas had water and we empty it and put new gas but it want run


Fuel system may be contaminated. Even if you drain tank it will have water in the injectors. Take a can of starting fluid, have some one turn over engine. Spray a small amount in throttle body. IF engine starts suspect water still in injectors. You may have to repeat several times to clear out. ALSO there is a small valve on fuel line. IT is where you would hook a fuel pressure gauge. YOU can bleed the water out at that point. You can open valve and turn key on and off several times, place a rag over check valve as fuel will spray out! Close valve try and start car

I cant get my coleman powermate 5000 MAXA ER to start. i have changed the oil, refilled the gas, changed the spark plug, and tried using starter fluid. what else can i try?


It's almost certainly gummed up gas in the carburetor. Get some carb cleaner, and some spray instant start. Drain the gas from the tank and put a small amount of 50/50 carb cleaner and gas in the tank. Remove the air cleaner, open the choke, spray a little instant start into the carb and start it. It may fire just a couple of time. Keep the choke on to try to pull a bit of gas through the carb. You may have to do this a few times. Once you can tell some gas is flowing, open the choke slowly to keep it running until you use up the 50/50 mix. Then try a small amount of straight gas in the tank to be sure it works right, before you refill the tank. Make sure you use a stabilizing additive in any gas that you store for more than a month. good luck, Al K

Ran out of gas and wont start


Sounds like a typical case of letting the car run dry out of fuel, you may want to try spraying starter fluid into the intake/air filter after allowing the key to be left on in the run position for a few seconds, this allows the fuel pump to fill the fuel lines with fuel, then try spraying a shot of start fliud if still no start you may have a more serious problem....fuel contamination...the bottom of the fuel tank may have sediment in it and when you let it go dry it pulled up the bad stuff and now it needs to be flushed.
New fuel filter, injector service, fuel tank drained/flushed and fuel lines drained.

Husk 141 will start if i spray stater fluid in it but wwill only run for a few seconds. Will not start at all with out starter fluid.


Be really REALLY careful using go fast juice in small engines, you can lock them up and snap a crank in a heart beat
Remove the fuel line from the carb and blow back into the tank.
90+% of small engines not running are from plugged or pinched fuel lines. If it has been pinched replace it.
Clean the tank out and refill with good clean gas mix you should be good to go

MTD yardman chipper wont start get spark need manual


I am successful too at using the starting fluid in the carb or directly into the clinder. That is how I start my MTD 5.5hp chipper. My problem is I have to hold down the primer bulb to keep it running. If not, the engine will stall.

1989 tempo 2.3 4 cyl 5 speed, runs w/ starter fluid


Hi, The carb is gummed up from sitting. The best solution is to take it apart and clean it. The starter fluid indicates that it has clogged jets or stuck floats. The good news is that if it cranks with the starter fluid everything else is probably OK. Good Luck!
