SOURCE: Continuously stalling and extreme difficulty restarting.

The brass "Bolt" that holds the "cup" on the bottom of your carburetor is also the main fuel metering jet for the engine. Get yourself a can of automotive carb cleaner, the aerosol type that comes with the small red plastic tube on the side of the can. Remove the "Bolt" and "cup". (Tip: tilt the carb side of the mower UP about 45 degrees and support it with whatever you have, wood, bricks etc. This will help stem the flow of gas from the tank while you have the "cup" removed.) Examine the "Bolt" and you will see one or two small holes in the side of the "Bolt" between the hex head and the threads. These are the metering orifices. Use the carb cleaner to throughly clean the "Bolt" orifices. (Tip: DO NOT attempt to 'drill' the orifices clean) Next, use the red plastic tube to spray carb cleaner up through the hole on the carburetor that the "Bolt" screws into. Be liberal with the cleaner. Finally, clean the "cup" with the spray one more time for good measure. Put everything back together. (Tip: easy does it on tightining the "Bolt") Level the mower, check for leaks and verify the oil level is OK. If the plug and air filter are up to snuff you should be good to go. (Tip: how old is your fuel? You should keep it around for only about 30 days unless you use fuel stabilizer. These little engines LOVE fresh fuel) Good Luck.

SOURCE: Poulan pro 22" self Propelled mower wont start

Yes go to an Advance auto or other auto repair store and pickup a Briggs and Stratton repair manual for the engine you have , the manual will cover all single cylinder OHV engines just make sure it includes your model number . These manuals are usually around $15.00 and are quite comprehensive and a good buy if your interested in repairing you own lawn equipment. It sound to me like when you reassembled the engine you have the ignition out of time which would cause the backfire you describe. Hope This Helps You Don

Do not run it like it is. At a minimum you have partially sheared the flywheel key. That upsets the ignition timing. Remove the flywheel and inspect the key, replace if any damage whatsoever. The key is a little piece of soft metal that is designed to give way when you hit something hard. After repairing that, remove plug and turn the engine over by hand to see if anything is hitting in the engine. Probably could do that first to let you know how bad it is. If no unusual noises from the engine or knocking of parts, try turning over with pull cord checking again. Then you can put the plug in and attempt to start it after flywheel key replacement.

I hope this helps.

If you are sure the oil level is correct then it sounds like it's about to die, unfortunately. A pine cone shouldn't cause any damage, but a large branch may do so. Was it smoking before you shut it down? The vibration could be caused from a bent blade. It could also be caused from a part breaking in the motor. I wish I could have given you better news!
Good Luck,
Jim

Turns over then cuts off

Clunking noise sounds like a piston to crankshaft problem. You can do a compression test to determine the bad cylinder.

Strange noises and wont stay running

The clunking is probably just the kick back from the motor. You're hearing the compensator assembly doing what it's supposed to do.. Which is saving your crank. The whoosh sound ?? could it have been a backfiring while you were trying to start it? Once you ad stabil to the fuel and it gets in the system it will run terrible until the stabil is completely run out of the system. If you're wearing the battery down trying to start it, it will cause the kick back and backfiring through the carb too. Make sure you have your battery fully charged before trying it again.

Some times when I try to start the bike there is a loud clunking sound instead of the engine turning over and trying to start, it doesn't do it all the time about half the time is it the starter or...

Is it just one loud clunk when you press the starter, or is it a noise that continues until you release the starter button? If it is continuous, that might be the starter clutch. Unfortunately, a look at the service manual shows that the engine case must be split to access the starter clutch (huge job, engine must be removed from the bike and turned upside down.)

Whirlpool wtw5100sq0 clunks when put on spin cycle

Does the washer currently work fine aside from the loud clunking noise? Does the clunking noise continue or is it just one loud clunk when it starts to spin? If its just one loud clunk then that is not a problem just ignore it as that is the clutch spring releasing, it probably starting making noise from the grease getting washed off when the washer over filled.
However how did the washer overfill? That issue should be addressed too. Sometimes though, if the tub is not centered from a heavy load the water will spill over the back but its not really an overfill.

Car won't start and starter is only making clunking noise

You can take out the spark plugs, keep track of your spark plug wire order, try to crank it over see if the engine turns over.


Check voltage on your new battery, some need to charge when new.

check for corrosion on the battery and starter cables.

My car makes clunking noises from the engine area but when the clutch is down at a stand still theirs no clunking just the engine ticking over. the battery light is lit staticly on the display too.

the battery light being on is not normal, this could be what is causing the clunking noises, whenever my battery light comes on i try and race home as fast as i can so i wont be stranded, because i know im running on pure battery power and it will only run for another 15 miles before she dies completely. Before she dies the car is making all kind of noises, clunking backfiring., so your alternator is probably going bad or your serpentine belt is very loose.

Clunk-clunk? Sounds like the flywheel broke. Maybe (if it's an automatic) the torque convertor came unbolted from the flywheel. I hope that I could help you. Best wishes.
