Ok, lower the idle and adjust the carb to best idle and turn down the idle and readjust the carb to best idle. back and forth till no change in idle speed. Good Luck

I just installed a high performance air filter for my taotao 50cc scooter and it starts and idles nicely but when I go to accelerate it bogs down and dies...why is this happening


The new filter allowing more air into the motor throwing off the air to fuel mix ratio you can either adjust the carb or put the factory filter on

Idles but losses power


Fuel pump not giving enough pressure out of idle...seeing that you have changed the carb....you are having a fuel air ratio problem. Check carb again and then check your fuel pump.

Mower carburator trouble i think


Soooo...You haven't said what the problem is. What "result" is the same?? Is it stalling or is it just not running at full power? If it starts fine and idles fine but then stalls or doesn't have power when you juice it, it sounds like a fuel problem. It is unlikely a carb issue if it gets regular use and as long as its not sitting for long periods of time. I would first check the fuel filter. If that's fine, then I would check the vent hole on the gas cap (if you have one). If it is a gravity-fed fuel system and the vent hole on the gas cap is clogged with dirt, dust, and debris, then the gas will not flow to the carb fast enough and you'll get a very lean mixture. Sure, it will idle fine because the engine isn't demanding much fuel at idle, but when you open up the throttle it will stall because the air:fuel ratio will be too high (symptomatic of a lean mixture) Last thought: Dirty air filter Hope this helps

Stihl fs-46 string trimmer wil staqrt and run(idle) but will not run high rpm or accelerate. Cleaned out carb and checked spark plug already. Grog


2 things to check firstly run it without the carb foam filter see if it revs then and secondly thin gas mixture by half for testing see if that has any effect. You are basically testing fuel mix ratio and testing that it is receiving enough air.

Need to know which adjustments on carb are for what results.


Generally there are 3 adjustments depending on the model. An idle speed screw that controls the idle rpm of the saw, the idle mixture screw that controls the air/fuel ratio at idle speed as well as "throttle up", and the high speed mixture screw that controls the air/fuel ratio for top engine rpm. The mixture screws will usually be identified on by a "L" and "H". Hope this answers your question.

Will not idle


two stoke I guees, eletronic choke if so then it is stuck, if not then if slide then slide stuck up a hair...carbs systems use Idle jet and main jet, the main jet is a taper jet with a tapper needle that adjust gas flow as the needle move up air flow across it draws more gas through the hole going to the float bowl but the idle jet is a fixed hole that has a air mixture screw nthat lets you trim the fuel air ratio for idle make sure the srew did not fall out, next a stuck float bowl can flood the idle with too much gas next the chock if half on can cause a high rich gas and cause huigh idle next a sticky throttle cable can cause high idle and just unhook throttle cable to check this the last thing is a points not electrong ignition system bike can cause high idle...air leake into the carb just like a vacum leak in a car can cause high idle...l.start with diss connecting trootle cable then check for needle jet seating then check for choke not stuck last is the float bowl level you get it study how a carb works and you nail this thats how I learned after 115 motorcycles I had seen alot of my own errors....rememeber high idle most likly is to much gas...now how is it getting to much gas is the question most likley

Homelite 26bp backpack won't run up to full throttle


I have let my leaf blower run and warm up before throttling up and still it bogs down and shuts down. There is no air cleaner to clean should I just blow out the carb. and fuel lines?
It runs and idles just no high speed to blow.
