2008 Joyner Trooper T2- Won't Start!

Recommended Posts

Have owned my Trooper T2 for over 3yrs now & haven't had much trouble! Went riding last weekend, everything ran fine, went to bed & when I woke-up the next morning it refused to start:-( Fuel Pump is working, Plugs are good,all Lights, Fan, & Winch work, just won't fire-up!

Checked all fuses & relays & they are fine as well!

Any ideas what I could be causing this?

I've been checking every wire, fuse, & other connection trying to find the problem. It definitely seems like an electrical problem:-(

Will it start if you push it, & if so, will it start up after it warms up and keep starting until it cools way down? This, IMHO, indicates that your compression is down.

It won't push start. The Starter is running as it should & Fuel Pump is working. Pressure is within normal range. It seems like it's not getting fire, but I checked all the Plugs, which are less than 3 months old, & they were fine!

Hey Im having the same problem on my rig. I just rebuild my engine from the head gasket up and it ran fine the day I finished putting it back together. But it's been a week since It started last and it won't run at all. In thinking we may have the same problem. Any thoughts? Did you get your rig running again?

Wiggle, unplug and replug every connector, sounds like something may be loose, even thing that are plugged properly don't make good connection after some time and need to be separated and rejoined to clean the contact surface and make good connection. This includes relays and fuses. As you pull relays, look at the blades to see if there is any discoloring or signs of heat and look at the socket where the relay plugs into.

I actually just got it running last night. The MAS was super packed with dirt and grease from before I did my rebuild and my cam positioning sensor had grease all over it. Then I just bumped up my fuel pressure and hooked it up to my truck since I have a dead battery and she started right up. But thank you very much for all your help. Reading this forum and a few others helped me find my problem.

      I have been going through the troubleshooting in the manual (pages 17-38 and 17-39), but I can't find anything that looks like the picture in the manual. If I run power directly to the pump, it will start and run but otherwise won't start.
      Any help to this old nubie will be greatly appreciated. My background is electronics, not vehicles.

      Hi I am new to the forum.  I have a small kids utv with a 125 4 stroke motor. It sat for over a year and I decided to get it running again.  Put a new carburetor on it and it ran better than ever. Change oil and fixed the brakes kids probably drove it for a few weeks maybe 3 to 4 hour maybe. Went to put it away after it sat for maybe an hour wouldn't start.  Just turns over no spitting or sputtering.  Checked compression has 150 psi, getting spark, changed spark plug old one was pretty black.  Put new cdi on and coil still nothing.  Any ideas would be appreciated thanks.

      This is a carb model not EFI it was in pieces when I got it. I got it running by replacing the fuel pump had to bypass this little reservoir thing I can’t find how it goes back in please help. Machine runs good but I have fuel coming out of the drain on the carb. This is a pic of the reservoir thing thanks
