Gas port might be clogged. Piston may be sticky, corroded or gummed up. That's a start.

First thing to do is go to and find the disassembly guide fior your rifle.
Take it apart and clean it well, especially the gas system.

Reassemble it and see if that fixed the problem.

Did it ever work for you? What has changed? +1 on thorough cleaning. That seems to solve over 50% of all firearms problems.

+1 on crudded up gas system. Clean it. Some SKS's came with
a reamer in the tool kit just for cleaning the barrel port. Pipe
cleaner, drill bit (gently) will work. Gas tube and piston can get
so mucked up that they stick together. Soak in penetrating
oil to free. Been shooting any corrosive ammo?
