Tune it up with new spark plugs and wires if so equipped? Under higher rpm loads, the coil may be cutting out on the voltage as it gets hot.

A friend of mine gave me a zr series ,625cdv homelite weed eater and I can't figure out how to adjust the carb. Bought a new primer bulb it crank and run for a little bit but I have to idle it high

Screw in the HIGH and LOW needle valves. Then turn each one out 1 full turn, That should be a good starting point.
After engine is running Run engine at Full throttle. Loosen HIGH screw until the engines RPM slows a bit. When that happens Turn screw back in until it revs high and then just starts to slow again. You do not want the engine to run at it's highest RPM or it's not getting enough Lubrication It need to run Rich, that's why you screw the screw in a bit after the engine has reached it's highest RPM. Let it idle down . Then Accelerate hard, if it hesitates, loosen or tighten the LOW until it accelerates quickly with no hesitation.

Check engine light report: cylinder 2 mis-fire, engine skipping, hesitant acceleration,

Use a different fuel station. First run the fuel tank low before refilling elsewhere.

Riding lawnmower loss of power, runs ok at first but in 1/2 to 1 hr loss of power, replaced fuel filter/fuel kit

you need to check compression. sound to me that ether the valves need adjustments or you have cylinder damage causing compression loose when engine warms up. send me the model# of the mower and engine too.

I have a 1999 1200XL Waverunner and while riding it lost 1/2 its power. I changed the spark plugs in it they looked pretty worn. But I can only get 1/2 the power. It takes off great for a few minutes...

Always good to start with a compression test to make sure the cylinders haven't lost compression (power). If all are equal and above 100psi you are good. It may be a cavitation problem... (too much air leakage into the jet pump) a gasket kit may resolve this issue if it is over reving on accelleration.

I had a cylinder 5 misfire on my 2002 chevy Camaro v6 3.8. I changed the spark plugs and the spark plug wires and the car runs great, until i give it alot of gas. If i accelerate too quickly now the car...

sounds like spark plug coil is bad. had the same problem on my truck also. check wich cylinder is misfiring and replace the coil and maybe the plug also. if the plug looks good leave it. autozone can give you a read out. when checking the coil, if it has a rust color to it its bad and needs to be replaced. 02 z28

Hardly start; skips badly at low rpm; smooths out some after 3000

I had a similar problem and traced it to the hole in the gas cap was rusted shut so that the engine was starved for gas. I drilled a small hole in the gas cap and it runs like new. Sorry-no new gas caps are available through the Honda dealer as the bike is so old.

Engine is skipping when accelerating

You only have 4 so better just do a tune up and change the plug and wires, but one at a time so you don't get them crossed when re-installing the new plugs and wire.
Use Platinum plugs since there good for 100,000 miles which mean less maintenance, and double check that the spark plug boots set to the plugs when re-installed.
Run some fuel injector cleaner through the gas tank for about a week to to clean out your fuel system and hope fully the skipping stops.
If your going to get all the goodys at Auto Zone, have them scan the car for any DTC codes since it's free and see if there are other issues that is causing the skipping like a bad signal from the MAP sensor ECT.
Good luck and keep me posted.
