Spark, fuel compression still won't start

I have spark, and after repeated cranking the plug is moist with fuel, so I think I have spark, fuel, and compression, but it won't even sputter, nothing at all. I thought about pulling the carb and doing a rebuild, since that's fairly easy to do but I'm at a loss as to why this saw ran fine one day, then two weeks later wouldn't even sputter Joined May 24, 2016. ·. 10 Posts. Discussion Starter · #1 · May 24, 2016 (Edited) I just bought a 2004 Outlander and I can't get it to start. I have spark, I have compression, and I have fuel (I even tried spraying a little starting fluid in the carb). It turns over, but won't start. New battery....and I've also tried jumping it from a 2nd. The normal fix is to drain the fuel system, replace the fuel, and rebuild the carburetor, which is a cleaning and replacement of diaphrams, valves, etc. The next likely cause is possible loss of timing alignment. If there was no trauma to the saw's motor, this is unlikely. However if it happened, you could still get spark without combustion May 7, 2021 No Start Engine Will Not Start - But, Fuel Pump, Spark And Compression Are Good All engines require three things to start and run; spark, fuel and compression. So, if any one of these is missing, your engine will not start

The motor has spark, compression and fuel, but will not start. It's very frustrating. SPARK: I tested spark with an inline spark tester and it confirmed that there is spark. I cleaned the plug and lightly sanded it. It is gapped at .030 COMPRESSION: It tests at 110 psi, which I think is adequate for a mower I would suggest trying new spark plugs to be sure thats not the problem. You can have good compression, ignition, and fuel and still not get a 2 cycle to pop off and run. If you have a major air leak into the crankcase, you will never get it to start and may never even get it to pop

It should, or you are missing one of the other two components (spark or compression). If it does then look into the fuel bowls on the carbs, if it doesn't, double check the compression with a gauge (looking for anything readings that are similar and above 90 lbs), and then start checking electrical components with the service manual. Hope this. When your engine cranks but won't start or run, it could mean your engine is having trouble producing a spark, getting fuel, or creating compression. The most common causes are problems in the ignition (for example, a bad ignition coil) or fuel system (for example, a clogged fuel filter) Still nothing. I took some starting fluid and put it down the spark plug hole (Could not put it down the air cleaner without tearing the whole thing apart) and still nothing. I figured then that the plug might be bad. Just because it sparked out of the saw, did not mean that it could spark under compression I would start with the spark issue. Seeing a good spark jump across a typical spark plug on the side of the engine is one thing. Actually having a good spark inside is an entirely different issue. My suggestion is to buy a spark tester at the local auto parts store. They are really cheap and will tell you for certain if you do have a spark issue

Pull your spark plug wire, thread the compression tester's fitting into your spark plug hole, and turn your engine over with the key. Unplugging your fuel pump relay and ignition coil is good. Hi! I can't get my DR125 to run. I have spent hours on it trying to figure out the fault, but still wont run. I have - compressed the air out of the jets, cleaned everything on the carb - changed the spark plug (D8ea) - checked the wiring etc. I am getting a nice blue spark, lots of fuel, and good compression Clear the fuel from the cylinder by pulling on the engine starter a couple of times. Next, connect the spark plug wire after replacing or cleaning it. 4. Switch the Master Control to Warm Start Positio

my honda shop sent me the wrong rings causing me to lose all my compression. i suggest doing a compression test. i could feel compression with my finger over the spark plug hole but it wasn't enough to make it fire. if you rings are bad enough you will not start. if you have compression, spark and fuel then you are going to run unless you are. Re: js550 won't start? has, spark, fuel, compression. usually it runs from your negative battery terminal to one of the studs holding your carb on. the Ebox should also have a smaller gauge wire running from it to the negative terminal on your battery. and the timing is actually easy. 1. pull stator cover off hondaracing02 said: So I have an 01 polaris sportsman 500ho and a few years ago it randomly quit running. Got it out this winter, rebuilt carb, new spark plug, and fresh air filter. The machine is getting spark, and i checked the fuel pump and that seems to be working as it should because there is fuel in the carb bowl, but it will not start A normal gas engine needs power, fuel, air, compression, and spark. As indicated by the car cranking, power is not an issue, so it's likely an issue with spark, fuel, or compression. See, you.

It should run if you've got compression and spark. If your not getting gas it'll quit quickly, but it should run
  3. g and will cause hard starting or even imposible to start/run. check the ti
  4. Low compression lets the air/fuel mixture back into the case, so the saw doesn't draw fresh mixture into the case, and if the engine fires exhaust gases get into the case and really mess up the mix. The spark should jump a half-inch or so between the lead and head. 1/8 isn't much, and if it won't jump any farther than that you have a weak mag
  5. Air. I've had the filter off, it still won't run. So to summarise, I have a good spark, a good amount of fuel, all the air it wants, but it won't run. This brings me to the final point. Compression. Pushing the bike along with the clutch out, is hard and when trying to kick start it, it is just as hard as the kit on the other bike
  6. Unplug the spark plug wire from the spark plug if the engine did not start. Hold the insulated part of the spark plug wire with one hand and place the bare part about 1/4 inch away from the top of the spark plug. Step 9 Try to start the engine and watch for a spark between the wire and the plug

Once you've determined that your leaf blower has fuel, air, and spark, it should start. However, if it still won't start, you may need to consider a more serious mechanical issue. If you have little mechanical knowledge, you should contact a certified service agent Now it still doesn't want to start. It has a nice blue spark when I crank it without the coil connected, the plug comes out wet, so there's fuel when I take the plug out, hold my thumb over the plughole and turn the kickstart, there is definitely compression. Compression feels like it might be less than before, a bit easier to kick over. Not sure When your engine cranks but won't start or run, it could mean your engine is having trouble producing a spark, getting fuel, or creating compression. The most common causes are problems in the ignition (for example, a bad ignition coil) or fuel system (for example, a clogged fuel filter). However, the source may also be a mechanical fault (for.

I am working on a 2001 Dodge Caravan Sport 3.3L Flex Fuel that will crank, has spark, has fuel at the rail, has compression on at least the front 3 cylinders (cannot easily reach the back three to test), but will not start or even attempt to fire. Even spraying starting fluid directly into the throttle body does not yield an attempt to fire If the fuel is the cause of Stihl Chainsaw starting problems, you should c hange it with a proper fuel mixture. If the fuel is good, but still the chainsaw is not starting, look at the fuel tank for cracks and leaks. 4. Compression Problems. Compression is essential for managing the overall spark and fuel systems Just plain won't start. So am going to get a spark tester, and if it gets spark but still won't start, then I could either still have a bad coil (one of those ones where it works with no load but when it has load on it when plug is in engine it wont function), or I have a bad carb or fuel line issue I'm leaning towards a spark problem, because the closest it has come to running is the first thumbing of the starter after installing a brand new plug. The KACR is also a thought, because I've never seen an engine lose compression to the point where it won't start without also losing power and blowing smoke

Engine Will Not Start - But, Fuel Pump, Spark And

  1. Gas Leaf Blower: Won't start. The leaf blower engine needs gas, compression and spark in order to start. First, make sure there's fresh gas in the tank-old gas accumulates water and burns poorly. Replace the fuel if it's old. Add fuel stabilizer to the gas when you refill the tank to help keep the fuel fresh. If the fuel is fresh, do preventive.
  2. Compression. If you've ruled out electrical, spark/ignition and fuel problems, but the engine still won't start, it may have an internal problem, such as low compression. A compression gauge is inexpensive and available at auto parts stores. Most engines will show cranking compression of at least 85 to well over 100 psi. If your compression.

Don't take anything for granted If you are sure spark is present, give it a shot of starting fluid in the carburetor. If it does not start check for compression. Still no start make sure timing is good and valves are operating properly. An engine needs fuel, air, compression, and spark to run so check things out one at a time and I am sure you will get it runnin Once you confirm the battery is still good, that's one less worry as you try to source the true problem. In general, the issue likely falls into one of three categories: fuel, compression, or spark. To start the bike, you need to determine which of those is missing and how to reintroduce it

Compression. If gas, spark and air are all present in the right combinations at the right time, and the mower still doesn't start, check the engine for proper compression. Compression gives the engine enough vacuum pressure to keep the moving parts moving and the systems working. If the engine loses this compression, the fuel will stop flowing. The minimum is actually, air, gas, spark and timing. If you have some compression, some spark, some gas and the spark at halfway the right time, you should at least get a chuff out of it here and there. I assume if you placed a petcock it has fresh gas in it. Never work with gas more than 2 weeks old
