Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. What type of engine are you trying to start? Snowblower?
Thanks for this information. Did your engine run satisfactorily at the end of last snow season? Did you have gas left inside your fuel tank, from last season? These are only troubleshooting questions.
Do you have any carburetor cleaner in a can?
If not, remove your spark plug, and pour about a teaspoon of gas into your spark plug hole. Re-insert your spark plug, then try starting your engine again. Let's see if your engine will start up and run briefly.
