You definitely need to have your carburetors thoroughly cleaned out and adjusted. Sound like pilot needle's lack of sealing that causes the bowls to overflow into the cylinders.

Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!

Looks like oil and fuel is leaking or blowing from exhaust.


John - Husqvarna makes really good power equipment that seldom offers trouble. The unit you are talking about is a 2 cycle system, meaning you mix oil and gas together in lieu of having an oil sump at the bottom of the engine like 4 cycle motors have. First question, did you mix a bottle of One Mix 2 cycle oil to a gallon of regular gas to start off using your machine? If you did, then I would think your unit is badly flooded, which happens a lot with 2 cycle equipment. Try taking out the spark plug and see if the spark plug looks wet from too much fuel. If it is, leave the spark plug out for a day or so to allow the cylinder head to vent the gas fumes. Replace the wet spark plug with a new one and try to start the unit again. Here's a tip: If you do flood a 2 cycle piece of equipment (trimmer, chainsaw, blower, etc.) again, make sure the choke is off and hold the throttle trigger wide open. Pull the started cord several times until the unit starts to run. Keep holding the throttle wide open until it clears itself out. Remember, you run the equipment, it does not run you :-)

It cranks, but why won't it start?


HI Luann:
I'd pull the spark plug(s) and clean and dry them, then check for spark.
It's possible they got wet with fuel when the start with kill switch on was tried.

Regular gas (not 2 cycle) was put in my Poulan Pro chainsaw


If it was not run, or was shut down before it seized, drain the fuel
refill with 2 cycle mix (double oil if the saw had been run).
Start it and run under light load till empty.
if it seized a total rebuild will be necessary.

What should I do with my husqvarna 130BT because I put in too much oil with the gas and it won't start?


First, you need to dump all of the fuel out of the gas tank, Preferrably into a gas container. If you know how much oil you dumped in, you can calculate how much more gas to add. You could also just dump the gas, re-mix some new gas and oil, whichever you prefer.

If you are comfortable doing this, remove the fuel lines going to the carberator and let them drain into a pan. Pump the fuel primer to purge the gas out of the carburator, and then re-install the fuel lines. This might help you get it started a little faster, but its not necessary. You can burn the old gas in the engine at it will be fine.

Next, remove and replace the spark plug. Its probably fowled out with too much oil. Keep a can of carb cleaner and a small wire brush handy, you may need to clean the spark plug a couple times. If it gets too dirty, you can replace the spark plug with a new one. Do not burn Carb Cleaner in your engine for long periods of time, it will damage the engine.

After you have installed the spark plug and put some correctly mixed gas in the tank, Try to start the engine again. There will be some residual fuel in the fuel lines going to the carberator, so you will need to burn off that gas.

If you can't get it to start, try these steps:
Choke off, throttle wide open, crank several times. (or let it sit in the sun for a couple hours) (this corrects flooding)
Prime carberatur, Choke full on, throddle idle position, crank until it fires once but does not start.
Choke half, crank until it fires again or starts.
If it starts skip this step: (Choke off, crank until it starts).
Keep the choke on half for about 10 seconds and let it idle.
Put the choke off and let the engine warm up for a couple minutes.
After warmup, test the throttle to see if it will run at full throttle (it may take some fluttering until the engine is fully warmed up)

Let the engine run at full throttle for a few minutes. The exhaust may be a little more blue-smokey than normal...this is the excess oil burning...totally normal and harmless.

Cranks, won't start strong smell of gas 5.9


Sounds flooded. Let it sit awhile and when you go to start it hold pedal to the floor. You might also have vehicle nearby for jump start, cranking flooded engine can wear on battery

Have a snapper mower.son put 2 cycle mixed fuel in it and ran it for about 5 minutes. Now wont start. Drained and replaced fuel and changed plug. What next?


the gas sitting in the carb is "still" 2-stroke...there's a bolt on the bottom of the carb...DON"T remove it, just loosen it til the gas leaks out (about 30 seconds or so)...that is letting the 2-stroke gas out and letting in the right gas...make sure the bolt is snug..NOT TIGHT...and giver a few pulls...no choking is needed since it's already flooded from pulling on it...it'll smoke a bit and run a little rough, until it burns the oil mix residue out of the muffler...Now get a Sharpie & mark the cans... 8^)

Car won't start


try this, if the car wont start push the pedal all the way to the floor and hold it ther while you crank. It sounds like you are flooding the car some how. Pushing the pedal to the floor puts the car into clear flood mode and it shuts off the fuel flow. try and see just a suggestion
