Bought new last fall and now won't start! I changed gas put in new spark plug still will not start.


could be several things. take plug out and hook up to plug wire hold it to the metal on the engine pull the rope. if it has fire you can eliminate coil. clean plug and put back in. take off air filter and spray a shot of carburetor cleaner in the opening of the carburetor. if it starts and dies you have a dirty carburetor that needs cleaned. if it don't you may have a compression problem.

After starting and operating the chainsaw for a short time, it dies and I can't get it started again. Suggestions?


Engines require 3 things. Spark, compression and fuel. And chainsaw need 2-cycle oil mixed with the gas.

Assuming you have the right oil-gas mixture and a fresh batch of gas, and you didn't leave old gas in the saw all summer long since last November.

-Take off the dirty air filter and see if saw starts without filter. Do not run without putting in new filter.
-Check exhaust port for mud dobber home or screen clogged with carbon and dirt
-See if saw fires up after squirting WD-40 directly into carburetor
-Check gas line >>> pull gas line loose and see if gas flows out of tank to carburetor
-Take out spark plug > put finger over spark hole and pull cord >> do you feel suction that says you got compression?
-Put spark wire back on spark plug >>> hold spark plug so threads touch bare metal part of spark plug hole >>> pull starter cord and see if spark shows between plug and saw >>> suggest you not hold metal part of spark plug while pulling cord [you'll understand why]
-If spark plug shows spark, then your saw has spark ... so put in new plug and start fresh.

If your saw has compression, spark, and fuel it should start unless carburetor is gummed up because gas was left in tank.
Here is the final trick. Start the saw while spraying WD-40 directly into carburetor and see if you can keep it going with the WD-40. This might take a helper. If this does not work, then carburetor is bad or gas line is clogged at carburetor. Time to take it to the shop.

Briggs and Stratton 6.5 hp won't start- not sure gas is getting to the spark plug, just overhauled the carb, changed oil and new spark plug


First you could make sure you have spark. Take the plug out and then plug it into the black wire. Set the end of the spark plug near the frame of the lawn mower. Pull the cord one time to see if there is an arc from the plug to the mower. If you have spark, I would put the plug back in. Before putting the plug back in I would spray a little bit of starting fluid. See if it will fire up with the starting fluid in there. If you have a true good spark, it should fire up. This may be enough to get some gas going in there as long as you have the lines hooked up correctly.

Engine on Craftsman Weedwacker will not turn over.


I assume the tank has gas. The first thing to check is for spark at the plug. Remove the plug from engine, connect the plug wire to the plug and ground the side of plug to metal engine housing using pliers with plastic grip handles so you don't get a shock. Pull the starter cord and watch the plug for a spark jump. If you have spark then it is likely a gas starved situation. All these small engines should be run dry before storing in the fall of year to prevent carb from gumming up over the winter. Anyway remove the gas line and drain any gas from carb and drain tank too if it has old gas from last year. Replace fuel line and spark plug. Using new gas and 2 cycle oil, plus an ounce of STP gas treatment, refill tank. Work the primer bulb several times and pull the throttle several times, then pull cord. Keep repeating to see if you get a start.

Only 750 miles on scooter. Put away with stabilizer. Starts bar-o-o-m like it's going to run fine. Then stops and won't start. Checked plug and spark. Plugged line?


The stabilizer is a bad thing for some carbs. It has a chemical in it that can eat away seals and gaskets inside your carb. Grab a gasket set for it, replace those, make sure to spray the carb out, then put it all back together adn you should be ok.

2003 honda crf230f will not start.bike worked fine last fall.i put a new spark plug in it,cleaned the carburater,cleaned the air filter & changed the oil.it seems to have good spark but just keeps cranking...


IF you have a battery get a new one ; put in new gas ; super; dsid you ajest any screws on carb. You tight need to run a prime tank right to your carb to prime it; and then hook your tank backup new gas lines to your carb. Now break out with the WD40 to spray all switches for rust.

Wont start


Start with emptying the gas tank totally. Refill with fresh gas/oil mix. Todays gasoline ain't that great.
Also after putting in fresh gas and priming if it doesn't fire at all pull the spark plug and if it is dry, pour a about a tbsp. of mix gas in the plug hole. put the spark plug back in and see if it will fire.
