Troy-Bilt Hand-Held Blower dies when warm and throttle wide open


You reported that most of the items I would've suggested, you have checked...
Good job.
A couple more things:
  • Replace fuel filter, it's in the gas tank
  • Check and clean the Spark Arrestor screen at muffler, when they plug up, it's a major restriction to exhaust gas flow
  • And check and adjust High/Low screws at carburetor, video attached.
  • And clean or install rebuild kit for carburetor
Good luck...

Caldina starts fine, drives fine but when i come to a stop it dies


if the engine dies at a stop or when you have the foot on the brakes, it will be a brake booster problem. If the engine dies at idle with just the hand brake on the problem may be electronic
Use the correct method to scan the fault codes as all disconnecting the battery is likely to do is energize the immobiliser and then it will not start at all

Engine dies


p0172 could be a few issues, A poor performing O2 sensor can cause a rich condition. Also an injector sticking open can cause a rich condition. I would start with a throttle body cleaning and a top engine clean (I love Sea foam) it has the least side effects, run the injector cleaning ( IT MAY SMOKE OUT THE EXHAUST LARGE CLOUDS) dont be alarmed. This is a good thing. Wait a day or so to clear the codes, because the top engine clean may very well set a code anyways.

Generator starts than shuts down on under voltage


The problem is related to the engine. When a load is put on the generator, the engine's throttle will want to open to maintain RPMs. If your carburetor is misadjusted or gummed/varnished, when the throttle opens, you will get a fuel starvation and the engine will die. If the generator is used regularly and hasn't sat for a while, first check to make sure the spark plug is good since you don't want to make a carb. adjustment using a worn plug. After you adjust the carb. manuallly flick the throttle to ensure that the engine doesn't 'stutter' or die out. If it does, increase the gas in the air/gas mixture and if that doesn't solve it, remove, disassemble and clean the carburetor.

My 1997 Nissan Sentra when at idle (like at stop sign) acts like its choking and if I don't give it gas it dies


I post this recommendation often as most people do not know about it. Your throttle body is gunked up to kingdom come with engine grime and is sticking not allowing the proper amount of air to get into your engine.

Your specific scenario sounds like the engine computer is not able to adequately adjust air coming into the engine and if you do not rev the engine, forcing the throttle body open the engine will choke out literally and die.

CLEAN the throttle body. there is a metal flap inside that is getting stuck. Check here to see a clean throttle body

Here is the quick and dirty: Your gas pedal is hooked up to a wire or motor that turns a flap open and closed and various degrees of open and closed as you apply and take pressure off of the pedal. this flapper gets gunked up and sticks. it is the sticking that causes your car to choke and die :)

Go buy CRC Throttle Body Cleaner and remove the throttle body and spray that in there and wipe clean with a towel.

Search forums for vehicle specific instructions on how to remove the throttle body and clean it. Guaranteed you are not the only person with this issue.

I will try and help for your Nissan Sentra


1. Open the hood, look at then engine.
2. On the right side there will be an air intake tube that is black and hooked up to your air box and throttle body with hose clamps
3. Losen the hose clamp from the throttle body and remove the black air hose from it and gently move it out of the way.
--> If you do not want to remove the throttle body completely, skip to step #7
4. there will be 4 bolts holding the throttle body to the intake manifold.
5. Note any and all electrical connections to the throttle body.
6. Remove the electrical connections (unplug) and remove the bolts (4) and the throttle body should come off.
7. Spray CRC Throttle Body Cleaner all over and wipe clean with a cloth that can get really dirty.
8. Make it SHINE :) then reinstall
9. put 4 bolts back on, reconnect the electrical connections you remembered from step #5
10. Reconnect the black air hose and tighten the hose clamp...

Done!

Start the car and it should be good as new. (sort of)

I would check the govoner spring, maybe it is worn out or isn't on correctly.

If this isn't the case I would check the fuel air mixture screws if your carburator has them, maybe it is getting too much fuel when the throttle is turned up.
