Sounds like a dirty carb problem, drain the float bowl if you can, that will save you taking it apart. Also, clean or replace your air filter.

Acts like it's not picking up gas. will run as you spray into carb.

Dirty carb. If it has a fuel bowl take it off and clean it out and clean the fuel jet that has little holes in it. I use an air compressor or a real fine wire.Try this before tearing it apart.

Generator starts with 1 pull and runs 5 seconds then shuts off. Carb is clean inside.

Must be something wrong with the governor or the links near the carb. Check the springs and linkages. These are usually at fault. If thereafter you still don't find something, must be the jets on the carb. One of it maybe a little dirty.

Honda 5.5 hp stops

Honda had a problem with the gas cap not venting properly, but commonly it will run for several minutes at a time before stopping. 30 seconds sounds like possible fuel delivery problem like a sticking float or dirty carb jet..especially if you have to run it with the choke on. A bad air filter...very dirty, or oil soaked might do this. Check your oil level. Sitting, oil is a little higher level than when running and these motors will not run if the oil level is too low.

Hi, my pc just shuts down after 10 to 15 minites as if there was a power cut then i put it back on it will not last 5 minites but if i leave for a few hours it will last for 10 to 15 minites again. can you...

From the information desribed it appears that your PC is over heating. You may need to clean all the vents especially the fan vents with an air duster (can of compressed air).

It is possible that your fan(s) has failed or is running slow - they might need replacing.

Also make sure you operate your laptop on a solid surface so that air can freely circulate under and around it.. I hope this has helped

My car cuts off when I stop, and it hesitates, and it has a loss of power

Mass air flow sensor is dirty. It is located on the top of the engine near the air intake. It has three screws that hold the cover on. Clean with a little brake cleaner or carb cleaner. It builds up carbon, but when you clean becareful not to break the little wire that is in there.

Motor has to be cranked alot to start and then when you push up on the throttle for more power it runs just above an idle , and dosent rev up all the way

Your carb. might be out of adjustment. There is a rod and another rod with a spring on it going from the carb. 2 an arm on the side of the motor. With the motor running, push the arm a little towards the carb. If it revs up, its out of adjustment, if not, you have a dirty or bad carb. Clean or replace the carb. If that doesn't work, your keyway might be cut or broke. The keyway is what keeps the motor in time so everything works together. Like a timing chain or belt on a car. Good luck.

Makita G11oo portable generator. starts on choke. cuts off run

Just noticed your question... If you still need a little help:
1. If the gas is from last year, drain the tank and the carb bowl and replace gas with new. Visually inspect the inside of the tank sure there's no sediment that needs to be cleaned out.
2. remove air cleaner and make sure it's not plugged or dirty
3. plug the spark plug and clean with spray carb cleaner.
4. At end of season, mix some gas stablizer in with the fuel to keep it from going bad while in storage.

Let me know how it goes..

Happened to mine as well. Took 3 or 4 visits to the dealer before it finally happened when they were test driving, as before they did not believe me and thought i was running out of fuel! Turns out the fuel pump was faulty and was replaced with unit of different spec as the original type pumps were overheating and cutting out. The pump would work again when it had cooled down. The new different spec pump has worked fixed everything and now the scooter has not missed a beat. This should be fixed under warranty.
