Signs of a Bad Spark Plug

If it has fuel which isn`t blocked from entering the piston anywhere (like the carburetor, if the fuel has been sitting unused in the tank for too long), it should start. If the gas tank is full and the fuel is good but your small engine won`t start, you probably have a faulty spark plug.

A: This spark plug should have a gap set to 0.02 inches.
One of the key factors that makes a spark plug work well, or not, is the size of the gap between the electrodes. If the gap is too small, the spark will likely be too weak and cause the engine to run poorly or with poor efficiency.

Poulan 2375le chain saw. just replaced primer bulb, gas lines and diaphram. also has new gas and spark plug. will fire up but wont stay cranked especially when I mash the throttle. please help..
ANSWER : Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Be sure the fuel and oil mix is thoroughly shaken just before filling the tank each time to prevent oil starvation. Set the plug gap to 0.020″ and test the spark for being blue and snappy. If weak looking, remove the left side engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel so that the magnets are just under the module poles, insert a thin business card into the gaps, loosen the module screws to allow the poles to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don’t close up further. Replace the cover and retest spark–if ok, try for start. Hope this helps!
