No floats in chainsaw carbs. Severly flooded most common start problem with chainsaws. Read and follow the start procedure in your manual. Don't use choke on flooded engine (may set fast idle, set then turn off)!

Seems my Poulan Chainsaw P3314 is flooding.


Ron, the excessive gas could be the result of continued start attempts with a weak spark or a bad plug or a carboned plug. If none of the carb adjustments have not been turned or twisted prior, I'd suggest obtaining a fresh spark plug. Make sure the gap is correct. Blow out the cylinder with compressed air to vent all the residual gas/oil within. Ground the new plug against the engine and pull the cord. You should observe a fairly bright spark at the plug. If no spark you could have a faulty coil/ignition module. If a bright spark is present, install the plug and give it full choke and attempt to start. It should attempt to start within a few pulls....when it does, go immediately to HALF-choke and pull again and it should start.

Why does Honda GX340 die immediately despite fresh gas, cleaned carb, and new plug?


Perhaps you haven't adjusted the carburetor correctly.The fuel supply orifice could be still plugged . Recheck the carb.

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.

Wont start i have changed gas and spark plug


kill switch in proper position for run? fuel valve on if applicable?choke on ? sorry i had to ask. pull plug out ,connect plug wire and see if spark by grounding plug on engine, than a sharp pull from recoil- should see spark. good spark? if so- now see if fuel is reaching carb by removing screw on bottom of carb float bowel . this must be done out side - i know there is a blizzard going on. remember where all gaskets go and are properly on when putting back together. If no FRESH fuel FLOWS OUT WITH GAS ON your needle on the float shaft is probably stuck in the seat of the carb.Pull down on float gently to release needle valve.may have to shoot some carb cleaner in there. be prepared to shut off fuel if it starts flowing.If no shutoff ,pinch off fuel line with small vice grips or hemo's. all jets should be cleaned if old gas dried in bowel over time.

I have a 181 se husqvarna chainsaw been in my shed for 4 years not gettin used now am needin it.can anyone help. when am trying to pull cord to start it its realy tough to pull when i take spark plug out...


The engine may be flooded severely. Take the spark plug out, shut the ignition off, turn the saw upside down, pull the throttle full on, and pull the starter a number of times until it quits expelling fuel. Check for a blue and snappy spark (gapped 0.020"). Make sure the fuel tank is filled with fresh fuel mix (50:1 ratio). Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of all of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. The carburetor probably needs to be dis-assembled, cleaned inside and out, and check the condition of the lower diaphragm which should be flexible without holes or cracks. Hope this helps!

99' Suzuki GXS-R 600.. Won't start unless you pull the "CHOKE" and stalls if you turn off the Choke. Also it sputters at idle, I drained the tank and put in fresh gas, replaced air filter... want to...


overhaul the carburetors or just take them apart and clean them you may have needles sticking and jets plugged, buy a kit, and or clean all pieces of carb inside and out with gum out carb cleaner and put back together blow all airs out with compressed air. When done screw in air fuel mixture screws all the way and turn counter clockwise out 3 full turns to fire it up then adjust accordingly.

GAS TRIMMER WON'T START - BUT ALMOST STARTS WHEN I POUR GAS IN THE SPARK PLUG POCKET, THE GAS THERE DRIES/DISAPPEARS FAST. MUST BE A GAS LINE SITUATION? WHAT SHOULD I DO?


The gas is going into the the crankcase. When the piston goes down it opens the ports and allows the gas to go down untill it could fill the crankcase. Start by blowing compressed air into the spark plug hole and allowing the piston to go to it's lowest position. This will usually remove any liquid gas from the crankcase. Next get yourself a small spray bottle and fill it with the same gas mixture your trimmer uses. Now you can spray a small amount into the spark plug port, replace the spark plug, full choke and pull till it pops. set to half choke and pull. I have also sprayed into the carb but you must open the throttle to allow the gas to enter the combustion chamber. Spray,close throttle,pull choke and pull. You may need to do this a few times for it to start. After it starts let it run at half choke for awhile until it warms a bit then open choke and go to full throttle. If this dosen't work it's possible to have other problems.

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.

Will only run with full choke and absolutely no throttle.


Carbs gummed up. Need a serious cleaning or a full ruubers replacement/rebuild kit. Gas turns to gummy when left stting in the fuel bowls.

Use a couple of cans of Sea Foam.. best stuff in the world.
