If you have not already performed routine maintenance this year replace the spark plug, fuel and air filter. Make sure you are using a fresh and proper fuel/oil mix. Check that there are no leaks from the primer bulb or fuel lines and that the carb is not loose (allowing it to pull in to much air). Failing that start it and let it warm up a minute or so. Then use something to support the tines off the ground and hold the throttle wide open (protect yourself and others from the rotating tines). Adjust the fuel mixture screws on the carb as per your owner's manual or until you find the 'sweet spot' and know the engine is running at full rpm (you will be able to tell by the sound). If these steps do not solve your problem then a carb repair kit would be the next step. Good luck.

02 suburbsn wont crank, full battery power

I had a similar problem with a 1999 Chevy Astro. All fuses checked out good. Several posts advised cleaning the battery terminals, checking out the ECU to cutting the yellow wire from the ignition switch, check to see if it'll crank on Neutral, and also checking/replacing the brake switch. I simply removed several keys from the key ring, then shot several bursts of air from an air can (some keys are keyed to the ECU to turn off the Security System when attempting to start the engine), then waited several minutes for any condensation to dissipate, then was able to crank the engine to life.

It could be a few things, initially it sounds like simple fuel starvation, remove the fuel filter in the tank and replace, check the fuel hoses, and the primer hoses if fitted for cracks or leakage.
