My engine has been running really wierd today. It stalls after a few seconds. It is very hard to start. It only runs at about 3 mph on full throttle. I think that the glow plug my be burned out. What do you people think is wrong with it?

its not your plug you broke somenthing on the inside of your engine. if u tear down your engine i can almost gurentee that you are gonna finds some sort of metal chuncks or shavings. u most likley blew the main bearings . tear down the engin and take a good look at it

I would check the engine,but it could be fuel. How old is the fuel. I would check the engine. Clean the carb and air filter. Put a new plug and fresh full in.

I found out it was the starter. I tried putting the starter on a new glow starter with fresh batterie and it would barely heat it up! The new starter that I bought was a piece of junk!

It was the glow plug! I changed the glow plug and now it is running just fine! I also used a new battery (sanyo) and it starts up faster now with the new battery and plug and doesn't stall anymore!

I was gonna say... whats the starter have to do with it :rolleyes: . Always keep extra glowplugs on hand, never know when a glowplug is gonna go.
