Does it have spark? if so spray carb cleaner shot in carb and see if it will fire, also make sure you have power to your fuel solenoid in float bowl. my guess is the fuel solenoid(roll-over) is probably your problem..Good Luck 2StrokeJim

Truck wont start

Check for spark at the distributor if no spark check or replace coil pack. also check to see distributor is turning while engine cranking, if not, possible worn out or broken gear tooth on shaft inside engine.
if distributor turns, check for burnt or worn out points and/or contacts on distributor cap.

Generator starts and runs in choke position only. shuts down in run position.

There is fault in the fuel settings, you might need to remove and clean the carburator, clean the air filter and also check if the oil is clogged.
Also remove the plug and check for dirt electrode tips, if so the spark plug must be replaced. Set with the correct gap , test for the spark before it is replaced.
Also check if there is impurities on the fuel. The carburator resetting must be done with care and take help if needed.

Car will always turn over, but will not start on certain days. At first i thought it could be due to dampness and faulty wireing. When it does start it runs smooth. The other day it started in the rain....

next ime you dont start there should be a fuel tester shrader valve just like the tire shrader valve crank it and if it doesnt start check the fuel shrader valve see how much fuel comes out and if it dribbles you need a fuel pump and filter. also the 1989 are populat for intermittent due to the ICM recieving low signals, and the theory back then was what went out first spark or fuel. ICM and cam sensor and crank sensor was just replaced, Now that was the fuel injected part, 1989 there was still carburator that was being made at that time and the popular breakdown was fuel filter getting plugged.

Sounds like you have a stuck float needle in the carbs (2). Usually after a few days with gas in the carb they will free up, you could 'knock' on the carbs with the plastic end of a screwdriver to help free them up. If not, turn off fuel, drain the carbs and fill them with carb cleaner for 24 hours. Redrain, attach fuel lines and turn the gas back on. If still no start it's time for a rebuild...

Can't get the chainsaw to start

What happens if you remove the plug, put starter fluid or gas in the chamber, put the plug back in and try to start it? If it runs for a few seconds, then you have a fuel flow problem, usually a dirty carb. If it has been sitting for a while, the ethanol in gas can attract water as well as deteriorate hoses, gaskets, etc. This would necessitate removing, cleaning and rebuilding the carb. I would recommend using a fuel stabilizer that counteracts the ethanol effect especially if your gas powered tools sit for long periods without use.

If this doesn't work, have you checked for a good spark? You can remove the plug, leaving the wire on it and hold it against the engine while you crank it and check for a spark (best done in as dark a place as possible to ease viewing the spark). Lack of spark would suggest a coil or magneto problem.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Hi,i`ve got a yamaha fz750 1988..and it won`t seem to run on all four cylinders..i took the air box off and while it was running put my hand over each carb one at once and found that on carb 4 it stopped...

Hi JIm,
If it stopped @ 4 tht means thts the only cylinder firing .
Remove the spark plugs,earth @ on the cylinder head, crank start and check for sparks...if its sparking tht means the coils etc. are ok.
As the spark plugs are out exam them to their conditions visit this site for more details :-

From here you would know if its carburator or probably it may need a complete tune up....carburator cleaning, float level..adjustment, valve clearance.. new plugs (gap to specs.), check air filter, replace or fit 'inline' fuel filter thn balancing of the carbs.
Hope this helps!

Where is fuel filTER

There is only one line (tube) that goes from the gas tank to the carb. If there is a fuel filter it will be on that line. To check if it is plugged just pull the line off where it attaches to the carb. If you spill gas, that is not the problem. Replace the line and be sure to clean up the gas. Sounds to me like a carburetor problem, though.

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start

Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.
