Can you spray starter fluid in the throttle body?
In simple terms YES it can be used as starting fluid or used on the throttle body. Although there is a specific engine starting spray if the situation arises where you may be desperate a Carby Cleaner can be used.
Is starting fluid bad for outboard motors?
Ether is a solvent, and when mixed with oil it will dissolve and breakdown the oil. If enough starting fluid is used on a two-stroke engine, it can keep the included oil mixture from doing its job of lubricating the engine. That can score bearings and pistons and eventually lead to engine failure.
Can you use wd40 as starter fluid?
Registered. WD-40 is highly combustible, and that might lead to helping an engine start on a cold morning, a’la starting fluid.. as for starting fluid not starting a car, not sure about that… but i do know it works wonders for the snowmobiles (2 strokes) when they aren’t cooperating.

WD-40 – has been reformulated with a CO2 propellant (as have many “old” products”) – doesn’t work on 2-strokes.
What can be used instead of starter fluid?
Premixed gas from lawn equipment, chainsaw, ice auger, any kind of premixed gas will work great. Make sure it’s premix or else it’ll dry out the cylinder walls if it doesn’t start, which isn’t good. And for starting fluid, make sure it has upper cylinder lubricant in it for the same reason to use premix gas.

It is used more often with carbureted engines than with fuel injection systems. Caution is required when using starting fluid with diesel engines that have preheat systems in the intake or glow-plugs installed, as the starting fluid may pre-ignite, leading to engine damage.
What causes an outboard motor to flood?
The Boat engine flooding can be caused either due to bad spark plugs that are unable to ignite the air-fuel mixture properly, a faulty cylinder compression system, or leaving the choke open for a long time. Any among them will increase the fuel ratio inside the cylinder, flooding the engine.
