Question about 2008 Keeway Outlook 150

2 Answers

At first the engine would turn over and then quit right away. So I changed the Gas, cleaned the plug and shot starter fluid directly in the intake. This got the Engine running but it requires alot of throttle to keep it running and it runs rough. Do I have a Carberator problem? Requires about 3000 rpm to stay running. This problem started when it would not start at the end of last season. I just started working on it the other day, it set all winter so that is why I changed out the gas. This scooter only has 45 miles on it. This is a 150cc GY6 engine

Thanks for coming to FixYa for advice with your problem. I will give you the best of my expertise to help you get it sorted out.

In short, yes you will have a carbie problem. Nothing to serious, it will be gummed up from being left with old gas in it. Petrol has a short shelf life. It starts to deteriorate almost straight away, and anything more than a couple of months old should be discarded if you want your machine to perform reliable with good performance.

Since you are able to get the bike to start, I would be putting some fuel additive in the fuel and see if you can clear the problem. there are many carbie/injector cleaner additives out there. I use Nulon, check with your local automotive supplier. The fact that it was performing badly befor estorage may mean there is some **** in either the pilot or idle side of the carb. Spraying carbie cleaner through the carb intake whilst the bike is running may also help.

Try these things first but if that fails, the best solution is to remove and stripdown the carb, and remove and clean all jets and pay particular attention to small passageways/openings. Use an aerosol carbie cleaner to assist you here, a compressor with air gun is also generally required. make sure you can see the carbie cleaner passing through these orifices and passageways. Letting things soak can also assist here.

Happy to talk to you further about your repairs. I have much experience in this field:) A testimonial and rating is a great reward for my advice to you is greatly appreciated. It makes helpijng out worthwhile and gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. Hope you get things sorted easily. Cheers mate

Ongoing starting problem

Staring problems can be a plague. First determine if it's ignition, air/fuel or compression. I always do a compression test, pressure isn't the issue, it's the difference between the cylinders, more than 10 pounds you have a problem. Next try a careful and reasonable shot of starting fluid, just a shot while spinning the engine into the air cleaner. If it begins to start immediately, you're problem is carburetor or fuel supply related (which with today's poor quality gas I see it in 60 percent of my work. Never use gas with alcohol "oxygenated", and don't leave it more than 90 days without adding a stabilizer).
If it still shows no sign of life, pull your plugs and watch your spark. I prefer using an old spark plug with a wide gap like .040, clamped with a hose clamp to a battery charger clamp. Is the spark consistent, a nice blue arc? If so, one more somewhat common thing can happen. If your starter isn't in great shape it can pull too much amperage away from the ignition system. With plugs out does the engine spin freely and doesn't bind? Right after spinning the engine for about 30 seconds feel the large positive wire that runs to your starter (or your ground wire). Is it warm? If so perhaps your starter is in need of service.

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.

Drain the carb if you haven't already, be sure the gas valve is on and the plug wire is attached, check for a kill switch in the wrong position, then give the air intake a shot of spray starter fluid. Hopefully that will get you going again.

93 trooper engine not turning over. is getting gas, new fuel pump and fuel filter on it. Is getting fire, but wont turn over.

Use a few squirts of starter fluid directed into the air intake. Remove the air cleaner if you wish in order to get a straight shot into the air intake. If it still will not start, you may want to have your battery checked, along with your charging system. Joe

! have a Troy built mower with a Honda engine, it quit running and will not start. I changed the spark plug, it ran for about one hour. Now the mower will not start.

Hello. If the gas has been sitting all winter, remove it with a siphoning bulb and put in brand new gas, not even gas that you have been storing all winter. Also, change your air filter. Finally get a can of starter fluid and a helper. While one person squirts a bit of starter fluid into the air intake [near the air filter] the other person starts it and use more squirts of starter fluid to keep it running. Joe

What coul be keeping my 1986 honda civic from starting? The plugs all spark, the fuel pump gives gas to the carb, Ive changed all plugs cap and rotor and have tried spraying starter fluid directly into...

It cranks really good sputters a little and makes some loud pops but it will not turn over? FYI:Cranking and turning over are the same thing. When was the last time it ran. The gas could be bad. Did you get new plug wires as well. Try testing the distributor, remove a spark plug, plug it back into the wire, and touch the threads to ground and crank the engine. It should spark. Keep your fingers away, that's high voltage. Remove all spark plugs, spray some starting fluid in each cylinder, then crank the engine with the plugs out. This will clean any debris from the cylinders. Engines need backpressure to run properly, a major exhaust leak hence the popping, could cause it to not run. If you can get it started try to keep it going, full throttle, keep in the starting fluid, it could just need to get warm. I used to have one of them and they don't like it when they're cold.
