    You need to tell us what kind of car it is, what engine, and so on...
    And also what have you already tried doing to correct the problem.
    for instance...I already cleaned the air filter, made sure the carb wasnt flooded, and so on...

    You need to help us help you, not just my car wont start please help.

    the idle has to be open just alittle bit. If you look into the carb you see where it opens up there should just be alittle crack there, kinda hard to say how big. Also get the smarttech engine needle scsetting and put everything back to stock ( if it isent already)

    I usaully getmy engine started faster by taking out the glow plug and then w/ an eyed dropper put some fuel on the piston in down position, put the glow plug on fast and sart it as soon as possible. If it starts then stop try it 2 more times, if it still doesn't work then your carb is clogged

    Julian - no need for two identical threads on this topic. To keep things clean and simple I closed your other thread.

    When was the last time you changed your glow plug,the way your describing your problem makes me think that you have a weak plug. Is the heat coil sprug looking ,does it glow bright red or orange?

    Reguardless of what you think of his choice in cars the guy is just asking for some help, all nitros break and have problems sooner or later no matter what make you have. So Julian were you able to get your nitro running?
