SOURCE: getting spark ,not getting gas

The valve is open. Is it working? Check for flow through the petcock and then out the fuel hose. Next check to see if fuel is making its way through the carb and down the throat of the intake manifold. If you are getting gas to the carb, but do not smell gas fumes coming out the exhaust after you have cranked and cranked, the problem is most probably one of the little idle jets on the carb or the float needle and seat. either you can rebuild the carb or the shop can. The spareparts aren't expensive, but it will feel like you were workin on a 40 rolex, with all those teeeeny parts! Unless you are major short of bucks.... todashop, todashop, todashop we go! (su nt to the theme from the Lone Ranber or the William Tell Overture, depending on whether you are highbrow or lowbrow)

SOURCE: yamaha warrior won't start

a yamaha warrior isnt a 2 stroke. they make a street bike nad a four stroke quad. Check your carburator. check your spark plug and check your stator. it may be very minor considering it was running fine then just went out. no noise or anything. you would have heard something if you broke something internal.

SOURCE: my 2002 yamaha blaster will not start.

Check that you are actually getting spark to the plug first. If you're getting spark, check your timing. I would say these would be the easiest 2 areas to start with. If both of these are good, it could be anything in your wiring, or your CDI box. Good luck!

SOURCE: 1971 yamaha 175 motorcycle electrical problem

ill do a list of things that can help or be the problem.

1) Pull the coil off and wire brush down all the bare metal. then do the same to the frame where it bolted on. Make sure there is a grounded wire that bolts back onto the coil if there was one, Replace the wire end for the ground peice.

2) Pull off the spark end cap and cut the wire down a few mm until you see new wire then screw it back on. (if its NGK)

3) follow the wire from the kill switch and make sure it isnt grounding out.

4) Hotwire - find the kill switch and unplug it. if this doesnt help unplug the ignition key wiring. on older bikes it will work for ignition but not lights for the key part. if this helps you need a new Ignition barrel / Kill switch.

5) check your wiring harness make sure it isnt grounding anywhere exept where its ment to.

6) make your your engine to CDI is plugged in and has no oxide in it

7) try and find somone with a running bike the same as yours and borrow there CDI, if this helps you need to buy a new CDI or check yours for wiring shorts.

hope this helps if not buzz me (

What do i need to look for if mu gas EZGO golf cart has a spark at the plug but wont start, even using starter fluid?

There are to many to list, but is it getting spark, is it getting fuel, is the fuel new, is the carb clogged up with dirt or gelled gas, is it in correct time, has the magneto moved or come loose. starter fluid is ok to use once or twice but it can kill an engine. Also have you changed the plug an is it the correct one. I once serviced an engine where the man replace the plugs with shorter plugs. They could not reach the combustion chamber an burnt the threads off. So much to look for.

On this cart, I have cleaned out carb twice. Battery good. It runs shortly then dies out. Micro switchesx4 has been replaced. Spark plug good. Gas is good and getting to carb.

Determine if it is running out of fuel or no spark.
If it stalls but will run on carb spray or starting fluid
sprayed in carb opening then the fuel has problems.
If it will not run on the starting fluid then the spark is weak
or failing due to bad wiring or coils. Once you isolate
the problem to fuel or spark then you can probe those areas.
Be sure compression is good also. 100 psi at least.

Kubota L 4060 wont start full charg battery

Try taking off the cables and shining up the battery terminals and the insides of the cable connectors with a piece of sandpaper and reattach the cables and try to start again. If this doesn't work, next try removing the spark plugs and shine up the spark area (center pin and sparking arm) with your .sandpaper and replace. If still no luck, it could be a fuel issue. You will need to check whether fuel is getting to the cylinders. Remove one spark plug and briefly turn over the engine and then shut it off. Do this very briefly for the sake of safety. If the open cylinder is wet (feel in the open spark plug hole with your little finger), it is getting gas. If it is dry then the fuel is not getting to the cylinder and there is a fuel plug somewhere in the system. This is more difficult to diagnose as it could be a problem with the carburetor, the gas line filter or the gas line may be plugged.

No fuel getting Ito spark plugs

If no fuel is getting to the plugs the inyection system is not working. Check for spark in one spark plug. If you don't have spark that is the reason why the injection is not working. When there is no spark, the ECM or injection computer won't work because it needs a signal from the coil, as s proof of spark..

94 saturn sl1 fuel pump replaced 1 year ago. I have 1/2 tank of gas and when I went to start car up today engine started briefly ( 3 second) and stalled out. after 2 more tries the car wont start at all....

Check the carburettor to se if fuel is getting through (or check the spark plugs to see if they're getting wet with fuel). If fuel is getting through, it might be electrics. Check there's a good spark at the plugs.. Any water got into tank or carbs?

Scag zero turn 52"deck tiger mower

If you have spark, compression, and fuel to the carb but not at the plug. You have a clogged carb. Try starting with starting fluid, if it fires briefly, your carb needs to be removed and cleaned.

Have plenty of gas, but my 2003 grand caravan cranks and sounds like its not getting any gas

Having gas and having gas available to the engine are different things.
You think you have fuel so I would next check for spark. Pull one of the sparkplug leads from the plug, insert any metallic rod-like object into the connector and position this so you have ~1" distance from any grounded metal on or around the engine.
Keeping free of rotating belts and pulleys, have someone turn the key as if to start the engine. You should see within a few seconds, a fat blue spark arc from the rod/screwdriver to ground.
If you do, then you know you have spark. If not, then a coil pack or coil may have failed and will need replacement.
The next step would be to locate the fuel line coming in from the rear of the van and check for a fuel filter; this will probably look like a cylinder with a flange around one end. If it is plastic and clear enough, check for the presence of fuel and any foreign matter. If you see chunks or heavy discoloration, disconnect the hose from the incoming end of the filter and briefly, keeping face and any kind of fire away from the open hose, turn the ignition BRIEFLY on to see if gasoline is, in fact, coming from the tank.
If there is, change the filter and try to start the engine again.
If there isn't, the fuel pump or its fuse may have failed. Check the fuse box to see if a fuse is labeled for the pump; if so, check it. If it is OK, then the fuel pump (mostly located inside the gas tank), has likely failed. Once you have found both spark and fuel, it gets tougher and you may need to have the computer scanned for error codes. Depending on the make of vehicle, scanners can be bought for a few 10ers:
Scanner for OBD2
is one example.
Since we have . . . hmm 5-6-7 cars in our family, it gets exercised at least once monthly and has been a tremendous help.

Engine turns over but won't start

A few suggestions...

If the battery terminals are clean (and they probably are, as you just replaced the battery), and the starter sounds like it's cranking, then there are usually two other things to check for. Gas and spark.
You need both to make the engine run. It's a little involved, though for most do-it-your-selfers, it's a-run- of-the-mill process. You have to see that fuel is getting to the cylinders by disconnecting a gas line and very briefly, repeat, very briefly, crank the engine. If any gas spurts out, you're getting gas to the cylinder. If not, there's a problem with the fuel system. Be sure there is no spark or open flame anywhere nearby. Take the car in to a shop.

The other most likely possibility is that your cylinders are getting no spark. You have to disconnect a spark plug wire and see if you are getting a spark. This is a little more involved. Get a fix-it manual for the in-depth procedure. When checking for a spark, make sure there is no open fuel lines around!

New engine

Is the gas being injected into the cylinders though! Try spraying easy start or the like into the intake, and see if it starts briefly.
