SOURCE: backfires, idles ok but no

The best way is to have them boiled or ultrasonic cleaned...If you can't do that, soak them in solvent overnight and use some spray carb cleaner and compressed air to clean out all the passages. I have found that a small steel guitar string works best, for the jets.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

I have a 850 and the carb has varnished gas that was ran through it i has no power and won't harly stay running what can i do. I was also told that gas could have got in my oil would this cause it?

if old gas has sat in the carbs and fuel tank for sometime, they should all be removed and thoroughly cleaned and serviced. this will require dissassembly to an extent. the tank will need cleaning as well to ensure nothing gets back in the carbs after they are reinstalled. the carbs will needs resetting and syncronizing. install a new fuel filter at this time also. ensure a clean air filter and if you smell gas in the oil, change it before starting.

Will cleaning my Troy-Bilt TB25CS carburetor heal it?

Since the air from the air filter does not go through the carb, the carb cleaner will not either. If you remove the carb and spry all of it that you can get to, you may get the plug. If you were to open the carb and go through it and clean it you would need to get new gaskets and maybe that will do the job. You may be able to adjust the carb. There is a "hi" and "low" setting. Try adjusting the "hi"...Lee

without knowing if its a briggs and straton or tecumseh engine ( I assume Briggs) the carb is where the throttle and gas line connect to. carb will need to be rebuilt most likely and tank will have to be removed to be cleaned. you can email me and I could do it for you I am in wisconsin kerryjonjon at I am the most reasonable in this area. I could do carb and tank if you want.

Fuel pump or automatic choke [ 1994Chevrolet 1500 Pu]

You can clean the throttle body plate with carb cleaner just to verify if guy #1 is right. The second mech. likely is way "off base" pump or filter would cause engine to run fine at idle and engine would "lay down" at the top of each gear. I'd do some testing before running out and buy anything more than a can of carb cleaner...Use it to clean wires inside the mass air flow sensor too...that can give similar problems .(use a Q-tip to clean gently so you don't break anything)

Craftsman chainsaw runs wide open all the time

It sounds like the needle valve in the carburetor is stuck open. The carburetor could just need a simple cleaning or you may need a new carb. kit.
If the carb. parts (needle valve, gasket(s), diaphragm, & small screen) are more than 3 to 4 years old, you should go ahead and buy the carb. kit. Otherwise just clean the carb. If you need advice on how best to clean the carb., just let me know.

Craftsman grass trimmer stalls when warm

The carburetor needs cleaned. Disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek brush, (used for cleaning between teeth), to clean the small portals. This works great for this job. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debris. Reassemble carb. and try starting.If this still doesn't solve your problem, you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace the appropriate parts.

Sluggish at high idle

More than likely, your carburetor needs cleaned. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean out the small ports in carb. Make sure that the small screen is clean and free of debris. If after you do this, and it still doesn't run properly, then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace the gaskets, needle valve, and small screen. You may have extra gaskets left over, but that's o.k. because that is the way they come.

No Gas to Primer Bulb

It sounds like the carburetor needs cleaned. Take the carb. apart and clean it with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tech Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), they are perfect for cleaning the small ports in carb. If that still doesn't work, you may need to buy a carb. kit for your weed eater. If so, replace the gaskets and valve needle, and also make sure to replace the small screen. this should all come in the new carb. kit.
