Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answe. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Are you familiar with removing your spark plug?
If so, I would like for you to try something for me. 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.
If it does, then your carburetor is very likely at fault.
We can continue from here. Thanks!
