2000 ltf250 Quadrunner turns over but having trouble starting

Recommended Posts

My 4 wheeler has been starting and running great since I purchased it. I changed theoil yesterday and afterwards I went to start it to let it idle so I could recheck the oil and for some reason it would not start. I let it sit for about 15min and tried again and stillnothing. I sprayed carb cleaner into the air intake and it started after a couple of tries. It ran great and started right up every time after. I tried it again later that night and it started right up. I went out to ride it this afternoon and it would not start. I tried sprayingthecarb cleaner again but itdid not work. I checked to make sure I was getting a spark and I am. I can't believethatchanging theoilwould stop it from starting. Any suggestions? Yourhelp is appreciated. Thanks, Joe __________

Not sure. How would I find out?

read your owners manual or call a local dealer

I would recommend pulling and cleaning the carb

If the problem is starting a COLD engine only (IE it starts fine when warm, but not cold), its the intake valve. Check the intake valve lash. If the valve is tight, that means you have a crappy air filter and/or a loose connection letting dirt into the engine. Now that the hardness is worn off the valve, you're going to have to adjust the valve pretty frequently until the valve finally wears away.

The oil change might have been a coincidence.

      I traded my dirt bike for a 2000 arctic cat 500 semi automatic. when i went to go pick it up the guy said it didn't get spark, so i thought it was going to be something simple like a coil. well it wasn't. first thing i did was take all the plastics off to get easy asses to every thing. so i bought a brand new battery for it seeing if it got power, it didn't. the dash wouldn't light up neither would the lights, so then i tried to see if the starter worked it didn't so i jumped the solenoid and the starter started turning over the motor. so i bought a new starter solenoid, when i installed it the electric start still wouldn't work , so i bought a new kill switch and starter switch that goes on the handle bars, when i installed it, the electric start still wouldn't work. so then i went to see if i could get spark by pull starting it, i didn't get any spark, so i bought a new spark plug, and guess what, still no spark, so then i bought a new coil for it to see if that would fix it. so i installed the new coil and guess what no spark still and still no power to the dash. so to sum it up i'm not getting any power any where to the four wheeler. so i cleaned all the leads and plugs and still nothing. so then yesterday i took the wiring apart to see if their was any frayed wires, and no their wasn't. does any one have any ideas what this could be i'm up for anything. also if any one knows how to bypass all the wiring just to get it to start i open to that to, or if someone knows where  i can get a wiring diagram.

      i have recently purchased a yamaha kodiak ultramatic 400cc. it is used and sat outside for a long time. i have done a lot of work on it and got it to run sort of. when i try to start it, it will start and run for a little bit then it will die, the time it runs varies. it has a new cdi, spark plug, and stator. most of the time it wont even start it just cranks over. there was one time that it started up right away and ran perfectly but the next time i tryed it wouldnt start. before that one time every time it started and ran it had a popping sound. i cant figure out why it wont run. any help would be muchly appreciated! thanks!

      I need to know what I have and what tire really go on it, Mine has 24x11x10 on the back and 22x8x10 on the front and I need new tire but I don't think are the right size. Also I can't find the model number listed but it looks like a 250 quadrunner 2wd and I think it is a 1987 maybe, can anyone help me, also I it has a rich running sound and I put a carb diap in it and cleaned the carb. is there a jet needing replaced?

      I can get about 30 mph (speed) Took the filter off still the same. Took the carb off all the jets look good. All new gas. What else could I look at?

      Hey all,
      I'm new to this site and to CanAm/Bombardier atv's. I purchased this quad local to my area and shortly after started noticing a knocking noise from the bottom end, which I've been told may need a rebuild.
      The atv is complete, but I'm now looking to part it out, unless someone knows where I can get the bottom end rebuilt for a decent price.
      I can take some pics of the quad and upload. If you need parts off of it, let me know and make me an offer.
