Staring difficulties How to start easily

    I have bought one of these similar on Ebay and couldnt start the thing at all. The seller said it was me not using the instructions. Unit sent back and it was faulty. Sent me a replacement, great for a little while but same thing happened again could not start it and suspect an inherent fault with the carb as there is a spark. Seller was no longer interested in helping. Personnally, I would never buy a Ryobi strimmer with Roto choke again, they re waste of time. I will strip it down to try and locate the fault myself. If I find the issue will post results here.... Dont buy Ryobi strimmers from Ebay margaret5467

I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas string trimmers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with string trimmers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt.
Hope this helps!!

I have a 2011 Rav 4 Limited with a keyless start. Ive noticed the doors are not opening with the remote as easily and now Iam having difficulty starting the car. Is there a battery in the remote?

yes there is. Your best bet is to drive the car to a dealership and ask them to do it as the anti-theft system may need recoding.

My 2003 Audi V6 turbo deisel has difficulty starting mostly in cold weather. Once it gets going it starts easily but it's a drain on the battery so I carry a re-chargable battery with me.

Try turning key to on position for 15-20 seconds before attempting to start that should give the glow plugs enough time to warm up there for making it easier to start

Heater stopped working and started smoking

You should take the car into a dealership for inspection. A guess is that the heater core started leaking coolant and that has shorted out the blower motor.
