Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or a plug on the bottom of the float bowl. Remove the screw or plug then replace it after the fuel drains. Below is a generic carburetor showing a large plug at the bottom of a float bowl.

Normally there is a drain plug at the very bottom of the carburator. This is where the water will be if you have it. It can be a plug wit a 17mm wrench size, or a flat screwdriver screw at the very bottom, leading into a drain port.

Keeps backfiring & spluttering wen i drive it but seems to b ok wen i go for long drives, also engine just stops sometimes wen i driving


Engine backfiring and spluttering is usually related to engine valve timing and spark timing if the engine is low to medium mileage and has not been pulled apart it is most likely related to spark timing
The crank angle sensor loose or intermittently faulty can cause all the symptoms you have described another cause although unlikely these days could be either water & or too much methanol in the fuel
Have your crank angle sensor tested change to 98 {premium unleaded} lower grade fuels are false economy let me know how you get on with this

Sounds like it may need some carburetor work. If you've stored it without any fuel stabilizer added, mixed well, and ran through the carburetor a little, even for as little as 30 days, the fuel can break down and leave deposits on the small mixture jets inside. Spraying some carb cleaner while starting and running will sometimes loosen up those deposits, but more often than not the carb will need to be taken apart and cleaned.

Sounds like you might have a little water in your fuel system, check the fuel filter for water then clean carbs, dont forget to check the gas tank for anything sitting in the bottom.

Not enough information, but there are two things I didn't read about you checking. Make sure the fuel quick connection on the engine (and possibly the fuel tank) is locked all the way in first, Then see if your fuel pump is working. Disconnect the fuel line from the carb and, holding it in a gas can, have someone turn on the ignition. If It's an electric pump, it should start running fuel, if mechanical, they'll have to crank it a little to get fuel going. If you get plenty of fuel that way, your float in the carb could have gotten stuck, or something in the line got into it.

I have an allpro 170T that flames out after a few min. I checked the eye with a meter and it checks OK , The air and fuel and fuel filter Check OK. Took the nozzle apart and it looks OK. Have yet to check...


Being that it will light I will assume air fuel problem. If it were the control board you would not get the heater to fire. Try cleaning the nozzle with carb cleaner and a blow gun and compressor, by simply blowing air thru the nozzle after spraying it good and maybe even soaking it in carb cleaner. Think simple here as these are simple heaters. Have you checked the fuel tank for water? These heaters build condensation when in storage so check the fuel. I empty mine in to a clean five gallon bucket and observe, the fuel is lighter than water so it floats to the top and water sinks to the bottom. If this is the case dry out the tank as best you can and you can siphon off the fuel from the water just be careful not to siphon to much and end up with the water back inside the fuel tank. Check all lines both fuel and air as these dry rot quickly from heating and cooling so many times. Make sure the foam air filter is clean, I use dawn dish soap it works wonderful, just make sure that it is dry before installing. You may even want to test with the air filter out, if it runs correctly you may want to increase the air mixture.

Yamaha Neos 50cc water in carb


water from an air filter will not get into the carby bowl to block the jets
water in a carby comes from the fuel tank
if you are using e-mix fuel change to straight petrol as the ethanol in the fuel attracts water out of the atmosphere or the pump where you get the fuel has a water problem in the storage tank
next add methylated spirits ( around 20mm to a gallon) to the fuel tank to break down any water so that t it can go through the carby and be burnt in the combustion process best fix is to remove the tank and have it properly cleaned out, clean the fuel filter , have the carby properly overhauled and get the fuel from a different servo

Only runs on starting fluid.


no fuel getting into carb pull apart and rebuild if water or fuel was left in lines than possible the float valve seat or fuel in line has a clog best is to let soak than blow out lines and use a wd40 or such little red tube and sruirt into the carb body to blow out and clean the nooks and crannies of the carb-- the well keeps fuel in and around fuel line for when u tilt or turn unit

Water getting into carb


The water comes from condensation inside the gas tank. Keeping the tank full of gas will help a lot. Keeping the bike indoors and warm will help even better. Condensation forms on a cold can of Coke. The same happens inside a cold gas tank. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

It seems to start sometimes an other times it dies out.. an wen it does run its spluttering wen u open the throttle


Try draining the carb float bowl. Water condensation in the gas tank has probably made it into the carb.

Craftsman weedwacker keeps dying


If the weedwacker runs OK on 1/2 choke or even better on full choke then most likely the cause is the carb gaskets are stiff and can no longer pump the fuel. Of course make sure the fuel lines are are the right ports (return and supply). While you have the carb apart clean all of the passages with carb cleaner.
