Huskavarna snowblower fuel line

My snowblower this am would start but quickly sputter out. When I push the primer bulb it sounds like air is moving instead of gas. Can I fix this on my own or should I take it in?

I have a 2008 Qlink Legacy. A couple days ago I was riding it when my CVT belt broke.

Hi, Noah and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
15. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
16. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
17. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

Idles with 1/2 choke. If open choke, or throttle - engine dies without any RPM spike. Carb was cleaned, jet is clean. When idles, there is gas in the primer bulb.

Hi, Andrew and the usual suspects are:

1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.

2. Fuel filter clogged.

3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.

4. Float needle and seat sticking.

5. Float level too low.

6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.

7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.

8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.

9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.

10. Slow fuel jet clogged.

I have a 1983 gr650 tempter. The engines runs great sitting still. Hits rpms and sounds good. My problem is when I put it into gear, it spits and sputters and wont hit rpms. I'm lost.

Obviously something is wrong. Start simple check all routine maintenance items, empty the gas & save a sample from the bottom of the tank. Why? Ethanol/gas loves to absorb water from the air in as little as 1 month. Additives allow the water to mix with the fuel, it does not prevent it and it needs agitation to mix. So if your bike sits in a garage for 6 months waiting for good weather, you can expect to be running watered down fuel. It will sound like those lawn mowers that sputter and spit in the spring after sitting all winter. If you find water, even 1 drop, clean everything out: tank, fuel lines, fuel pump(if applicable), carb, and carb bowl if applicable. If all is well, do a compression test.

Machine continuiosly floods out

Sounds like to needle valve is sticking allowing extra fuel to continuously flood the carb. One easy quick fix is to add a product called Sea-foam to your gas tank and allow it to dissolve any gum deposits that have been deposited in your carb. Keep in mind that Ethanol gas will start to go bad in 30 days if you do not add a stabilizer (such as Sta-Bol Ethanol or similar). Best to never leave gas (stabilized or not) in your gas tank for more than 90 days.

Kawasaki Bayou 220, cleaned carb. dont completely understand the floats but all jets are clear. reinstalled fuel lines, throttle, and choke cables. Starts great, also idles great. BUT when i test drive it:...

To start with was it fine before you cleaned it? Is any gas over flowing from the carb at any time? Does it start well when cold or hot? Will it take throttle slowly but not quickly? Did you adjust your air screw? These answers will help me determine what is going on. Did you pull the float off? Did you check the choke and make sure reassembly is correct?

I have a 09 harley ultra 96 cubic it sputters when i`m rolling & give it gas it don`t miss while idling or when i`m crusing only when I give it gas...any suggestions?

fuel pressure leak possibly. grab some carb cleaner or wd40......with bike idling, spray around the intake gaskets. If the idle changes, you need to replace the intake gaskets. I wouldnt think it would happen to an '09 yet but do a pressure test on the fuel system. If not mistaken, it should be above 50psi. If low..........grab an owners manual........but first....

are you seeing any codes? engine light coming on? If you are seeing codes or an engine light, most likely sensors...i'll bet its a TPS sensor (36 bucks, do it yourself, its two screws), Do the wiggle test ( cracked wire under tank or just above fuel injectors). Are you backfiring out of the pipes or does it sound like your EFI is sucking air when you start sputtering? If it sounds like its gasping for breath.....get yer book out...........its really easy

check fuel lines externally
take off console from tank
open the fuel door on tank
check those fuel lines inside. Mine, just last week, out of the blue started sputtering.....3 pinholes in the fuel line from internal rubbing. made me start drinking to find it
FOLLOW THE BOOK. it can be intimidating at first, but if I can do it....anyone can

2003 night train fxstbi starts fine but sputters at low speeds.

It sounds like it's running a tad lean on the low speed circuit. Since it's fuel injected, you'll have to take it to a dealer or maybe an aftermarket shop to have them check the computer's fuel map setting.
