Fouled spark plugs...intake manifold leak... you could have a vacuum line come off or isnt on all the way. bad batch of gas..weak coils, or poor compression. or the choke could not be operating properly. also running too heavy an oil could cause this problem, you should run 10w40 only.

Craftsman 2200PSI pressure washer, part #580.752700 dies when trigger off.


NEVER start an engine on a power washer with pump attached. You will damage pump and get no or very little pressure. Replacing pump only fix. Pump for this washer about $49. Check spring on carb for throttle open/close

When I start the engine of my Toyota carina ,it runs alright but after moving for about 3 to 4 kilometer, the engine starts junking ,when it's switched off the engine falls to start,but after


wow , 1977 , we dont get 77 cars here ever, they are relics.

a BLAST FROM the pass, (i have 66 and 68 cars,now, so....)

if the engine is good, compression near spec> x4 150PSI min?

The fsm covers all these numbers, so you look them up. ok?

and spark is good.,!

then the carb is bad. fixing 1977 carbs\' (done 100) are very hard.

lacking kits, and good cleaners (illegal here now).

lacking parts, inside, (toy dont sell em;\')





CARB 101:

Stalls only hot?

choke not going to full open hot? fix it or upgrade to manual.

float level wrong,? fix it. (google that)

JET, nozzles and emulsion paths blocked? or loose?

JET main fell out, and is rolling around in bowl?>

fuel pressure too high?, some shade tree used EFI pump:? oops.

fuel pressure too low 1psi, (read toy spec, get it right)

air leaks at the carb base gaskets, or there in intake.

idle set too low?



(bad carb)

how is that,?

When I try to pull start engine kiks back hard pulls the cort out of my hand and is spits out of the carb


you need to look very close at the flywheel key. If the engine has been apart then you should double check the cam to crank timing marks

Unit runs much better and smoother with air filter off. Foam element is clean. When putting filter cover back on, unit looses power. At times the unit runs fine for up to 30 minutes and then just lloses...


hi there bcolli3

does the unit become very hard to start if warm or hot but ok if cold

have you checked for restricted muffler ?-

is fuel system working properly ?

a air leak could also cause this too ---vaccuum and pressure impulses are needed to operate carb diaphrams and pump and regulate fuel mix ,

check the manifold block/ carb gasket for a air leak, check cylinder barrell to block bolts are tight

check carb bolts are tight,

check that fuel lines are ok no holes / splits , and fuel filter is not restricted / blocked,

could possibly have worn rings too

do compression test and a spark load test

Starts ok when cold stalls when hot and wont re start, i have checked valve clearances


Do not twist the throttle when re-starting a hot engine. That bike floods easily. The power valve in the carb squirts gas into the cylinder with every twist of the throttle. A fresh spark plug will also help.

I have a electric generator with a 5 horse briggs engine it was hard to start and ran with full choke. I ordered a rebuilt kit # 495606 and installed. The only way the engine will run , is to pour gas...


it has a blocked fule line and maybe blocked jets in the carb first clean all the fule lines from the tank down check the filter in the tank as well they do get rust in them, if fule is reaching the carb strip carb and clean all jets,, dont go poking wire into the jets it could distroy them check that the flote is free and lifting then clean the air filter and try starting it up,,,it should run ok then

Might be an oil issue. Oil when hot might be too thick for the pump to pump the oil easily in the engine. Check that and if not that come back.

Bad Carb


check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. also check the primer bulb for pin holes and proper seating/seal. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.
