If when releasing the choke u r having this problem then its to do with fuel going into combustion chamber..It may be the fuel flow to the carb so do these check:
- check fuel tap(if applicable)
-remove fuel rubber pipe from carb and check flow of petrol coming down.
-Now if it is a 2 stroke you may have a valve problem
-if all this does not solve then remove carb and split down to pieces and clean it.Let it soak in thinner for 24 hours and make sure any plastic bit is removed as it will be damaged if you allow plastic in thinner..
-Check engine compression.
-Check if there is any leak within the combustion chamber.
-last option if all these does not solve is to replace carb..

After start it backfires, sputters then runs

Hi,when starting bike you put the chock on,remeber this is to make a richer mixture for cold start,so when you start the bike put put the choke off a little bit as it warms up,other wise wat you are doing is couseing it to floud,so again as the bike warms up put the choke off little bit at a time,all the best.

Runs for 10 minutes and stops

When running is the idle smooth or up and down?
Is the chock operating, or adjusted after the motor gets warm?
Is the carburetor needle adjusted after the engine idles to warm as it should be to be set correctly.
Are you blowing snow when it dies or at idle?

Craftsman weed wacker will start and run

Are you sure you have the right fuel mixture? Many of these require 2 Cycle oil to be added to the gas. If fuel is right, you may have a vacuum leak at the carb (or crack in base where it mounts to the engine). My weedwacker needed to be run on half choke for about 10 min before it got hot enough to run with choke off.

My MAC 3227 trimmer will start an only run for a short time (less than a minute). It needs for the chock to be in the half chock position to start. If I move the chock to non-chock it stops. If I...

remove the carburator.. It's plugged.
disassemble and soak the body in fresh gasoline for about 10 mins.
Blow out all the ports with small engine carb cleaner and reassemble.
Drain the gas tank , clean it and refill with fresh gas mixture
It doesn't take much to clog those little carbs

How can i tell if my ignition is going bad i can crank it over but as soon as i start to drive it shuts it self off

First, make sure all your ignition components test out good; ignition coil, spark plugs, plug wires, power transformer, and even your alternator and battery.

Next, check your fuel system; fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, and even your fuel injectors. Many times a clogged fuel filter can cause idling and hesitation problems. Also check for any restricted air passages starting from your air filter, all the way to your throttle body and EGR valve.ry checking the tps sensor (throtle positioning sensor). if the tps sensor is not working right when the engine warms up the tps sensor will not allow the fuel pump to pump as much as it needs to keep the engine running. The reason it only happens when the engine warms up is because the throttle is chocked when the engine is cold so it does not take as much gas to run it.
