THe most likely thing that is wrong is that the carburetor is dirty and needs to be cleaned and rebuilt using a complete carburetor repair kit.Make sure that you take several pictures of the linkage before you take the carburetor off so you will know how everything goes back together.If you get the Model and type number off of the ENGINE, then you can go to this site and find the part numbers of the carburetor kit.Go to this site: and then woll show you the parts diagrams,Please give me a good rating as this is the only way that this site pays me for my time.

Well we tried that already cleaning it and we are getting fire from spark plug what else do you suggest checking

It still seems like a carburetor problem. If you did not use a complete carb kit, you should do that. It obviously isn't getting enough fuel. Let me know what engine it is and I might be able to help a little better. Give me the model and type number of the engine. Whaqt kind of equipment is this engine used on?
