What could be the problem with a weed wacker 2 stroke engine that cold starts but won't idle even after adjustment?
unit has had fuel sitting in it, carb is plugged, fuel lines probably rotted, fuel filter hardened. always use fuel stabilizers, this will prevent it from happening, but it is for sure a carb problem.
If it's a two-stroke, you could have a fouled plug. Try replacing it. If it starts fouling repeatedly, try cleaning your air filter and being easy on the amount of oil you put on it. Also cleaning the carb could fix that problem. If it's a four-stroke, you might not have enough compression due to a need for a valve adjustment.
two stroke engine are better than 4-stroke engine in the following ways:- in 2 stroke engine there is only one revolution of crank shaft and in each revolution the power is delivered (in power stroke). thus it has a good mechanical efficiency rather than the 4- stroke engine. also the power we get through 2-stroke engine is double than the 4-stroke engine because of the same reason written above. 2-stroke engine is lighter than the…
Depends on if this engine is a 2 stroke, 4 stroke, or rotary engine. I assume you are referring to a 4 stroke as found in the vast majority of automobiles built today. The answer is, At the top of the compression stroke. The 4 strokes of a 4 cycle engine are: # intake/induction stroke # compression stroke # power stroke # exhaust stroke
The gas Engine is a 4 stroke engine, Nother words the piston must make 4 stroke's to run. Here's the 4 strokes. Entake, compression, power and exhaust When you turn the engine over with the starter a piston starts moving, As it starts going down the intake valve starts opening witch lets air and fuel come into the cylinder. That's the intake stroke. When the piston is compleatly down the intake and exhaust valves are…
If it is a 2-stroke engine, 2-cycle engine oil is added to the gasoline. If the engine is 4-stroke, regular 30W motor oil is used. To tell if your engine is 2-stroke or 4-stroke, look for a spout where oil is poured into the engine. If there is no spout, then the engine is 2-stroke and 2-cycle oil must be added to the gasoline.
A two stroke engine has half the strokes of an otto (or four stroke) engine, therefore it takes two crankshaft roatations to complete a cycle on a four stroke engine and only one revolution in a two stroke engine. There are several types of two stroke engines, the different types have to do with how the receive the air/fuel mixture, also you have two stroke diesel engines.
Two stroke fuel uses the same gasoline but has had oil added to lubricate the internal engine parts of a 2 stroke engine which does not have oil in a sump to lubricate the engine like a 4 stroke. If you put this mix into a 4 stroke engine it will make a great deal of smoke and foul the spark plug, causing the engine to stop running. No permanent damage but definitely not recommended.
sidecam engine cannot be installed in 2 stroke engine because in 2 stroke engine we have inlet & exhaust ports not valves... so when piston moves up and down it automatically opens the inlet and exhaust ports so it does not require any camshaft for opening of valves as it is required in 4 stroke engine
In a kick start engine, the kicker is connected to a shaft which connects to the flywheel of the engine. As you kick, the linear motion is converted to rotary motion of the shaft which is transferred to the flywheel. When the flywheel makes the required number of revolutions (depending upon whether it is a 2 stroke or 4 stroke engine, though mostly 2 stroke), the power stroke of the engine is reached and the…
