I have a chinese 50cc scooter that will not start. It turns over like it wants to start but nothing. I have tried adjusting the valves, cleaning the carb. It has gas going to the carb,but not getting to spark plug. The spark plug is also getting fire. It started up then cut off and never started back. What could be the problem

take the carb off and take it apart it sounds like there is some trash in the jet after you take it apart clean every hole also you may have the vales ajusted wrong

Make sure the gas cap vents are clean and open. The gas tank must get air to replace the gas it uses, if not it creates a vacuum and the gas will not flow. Could also be crud in the gas tank or in the gas line plugging it up.

take off the gas cap then start it to much pressure building in the tank. theres a rubber seal cut 1 third of it out and it should run. youtube channl Jordan haus

Could be a gas hose is kinked or plugged or a plugged gas filter, or carb float sticking or gas feed line from gas tank is plugged.
Jordan's post about "too much pressure" in the gas tank is incorrect.
A scooter gas tank needs air to replace the used gas, otherwise a "vacuum" which is "lack of air Pressure", is created and stops the gas flow from the gas tank.

I have an ice bear mad dog 50cc scooter and I ran out of gas and put gas back in it and now it won't start. It was working perfectly before I ran out of gas. Any ideas ?
