My 110 startied dieing and acted like it isn't either getting gas

My 110 startied dieing and acted like it wasn't getting gas or air. I cleaned the air filter, cleaned out the carbuerator (wasn't nothing in it and gas was flowing) and replaced spark plug. It runs a tad better but will still not take gas and wants to die when you twist the throttle.

    No, it hasn't been sitting. My son rides it at least every other day. We were riding it the other day and it just shut off. It would then start and when he would take off, it would die again like it wasn't getting gas or air. We had plenty of gas in the tank. One person has mentioned one of the jets possibly gettting clogged.

    I meant to say in my clarification one other person had mentioned the jets may be stopped up with a small peice of dirt. I was wondering if it was in the ignition coil.

I have multiple misfire on my gmc envoy

The throttle body needs to be cleaned, grime in this area prevents the throttle plate from closing completely and allowing air to enter, making the air/fuel mixture lean. Make sure to clean the front and back sides of the throttle body. Also, disconnect the battery during the cleaning process to allow the computer to reset and relearn to the cleaned throttle body.

And, do not use any of those "gas saving" chips, they are a waste of money.

My 2001 chevy silverado had trouble i was going up a hill and it started to act like it wasn't getting gas and it finally died out and will not start agian, the smell of gas was very strong

Sounds like either a clogged fuel filter, or a problem with the fuel pump. The filter should be on the drivers side under the cab, and the pump is inside the tank.

It will not stay running I have to choke it to start it then it dies after I take the choke off it's die. It just act like it out of gas I changed the fuel filler

not getting gas, since gas is going to carburetor then the carburetors float/needle is not working, will need to clean/rebuild/replace carburetor. I am assuming that the mower sat awhile with gas left in it and the gas has gummed up the carburetor, sometimes it will clog the lines,filter and pump, you can use carburetor cleaner to clean it up and you may want to try blow air through the ports, Good Luck Tim

Acts like its flooded an dies,than black smoke out of the tailpipe

Black smoke somes from too much gas so that would be right. It isn't acting. It's flooding. Might check your O2 sensor.

92 Ford Ranger V6 4.0 Starts fine but dies as

If you took the filter out does it still die ? if it doesn't then replace it if its dirty you should replace it anyway a dirty air filter effects gas mileage as far as it dieing and if the filter wasn`t the problem then it could need a tune up. The timing chain may also be getting week

It acts like it is flooded, starts with choke off and throttle depressed. runs until carb runs out of gas then dies

Yes, Your carburetor sounds like it needs cleaned. Or you may possibly need to purchase a carb. kit for your trimmer if the cleaning doesn't do any good. When cleaning the carb. use a Den Tek Brush, (teeth cleaning brush), to clean the small ports. Also, check the small screen in carb. Can get clogged easily.
