I own an echo PB 250 and it seems to overheat and shut off it'll work great for a little while and then just shut off. Already know what the problem could be?

It could be as simple as the vent for the gas tank is blocked. When this happens again slightly open the fuel cap and listen for the hiss of air entering the tank. Some have a small hole in the fuel cap that lets air in as the fuel is drawn out. If yours is made this way clean out the hole in the cap.

How do you get the gas tank open 2002 Kawasaki zx ninja 600r

Should be the same as any other bike. Put the key in the gas tank and turn. Might require some fiddling, but is there not key hole in the filler cap or something?

Water in gas tank

If you cover your bike EVERY time and are still having issues - Find the SOB that is putting something in your tank for you. You can always look into getting a locking gas cap and key from a 2000 Buell M2 cyclone. Looks identical to the cap you have just has a keyhole in it. I would also try buying my fuel someplace else too. Could be getting water from the gas station. If you haven't drained the gas tank completely(pulled the Fuel valve off of the bottom of the tank - not just pulled the fuel line) you probably still have water in there.

Draining radiator

Terrific question!
First, fill the radiator with coolant, do not fill to the top, just fill about halfway up in the tank.
Start the engine and turn on the heater full blast.
Probably would be good to give it some gas to about a medium idle and hold it there, might require 2 people.
Very carefully watch the level in the tank.
DO NOT put your face over the hole. When the thermostat opens , the coolant will drop quickly.
Try to keep adding coolant as that happens.
After about 5 minutes you should be ready to go.
The way you will know is the heater is blowing hot air.
Now fill it up and replace our cap.
Be Blessed.

Why does my 2006 mitsubishi endeavor limited has problems starting right away?

Hello --
I thought I already replied to this question -- here is a repeat if so, otherwise, please see the bottom addition - Ck
Look for faults in the fuel injection system, Battery terminal connection loose or corroded; faulty fuel pump; excessive moisture on or damage to ignition components; worn/ faulty or incorrectly gaped spark plugs; broken, loose or disconnected wires at the distributor/ coil pack or starting circuit; faulty ignition coil pack..

ADDITION: I know this sounds weird, but you may want to try playing with the gas cap -- open and close the cap when you go to start it. there may be an issue with the cap.. of vapor lock in the fuel tank, also - when was the fuel filter last changed? How about the fuel tank -- have you added any cleaners or water removeal additives (LIKE LUCAS GAS TREATMENT - not the alcohol only additives which only dry out the fuel)?
Best regards

I tried to open the gas tank (lock) but i stick my key in (also tried the spare) but the lock would not turn. I looked up some toubleshooting and used wd40 in the lock and along the rubber seal outside but...

There is either a small piece of something keeping you from fully inserting the key , the lock is broken, or the lock has been replaced and the replacement uses a different key. On my 2009 Ex250 the key turns 1/4 turn clockwise and is very easy to turn. Worst case scenario, you may have to drill the tumblers out of the lock. Even if you undue all the top screws but the cap will not come off. There is one security screw under neath to keep the fuel thieves from just taking the top off. If you damage the cap beyond use you can always replace it with a Slingshotracing gas cap. You could take the tank to a locksmith to see if they can pick it. Hope this helps.

Echo backpack blower stops after 20 minutes

Make sure the fuel tank cap inlet valve is working properly, this will allow a vapor lock if it is not. Then check the fuel line in tank to make sure the pickup filter is not hung up in tank thereby allowing the fuel to get below the pickup. Also check the fuel line for holes. You can also try customer care, manuals and parts, type in model no. then get owners manual and see if in troubleshooting section it list this problem.

My car wont unlock i have my keys and keyless entry wont work

get some PB blast and spray into the locks they maybe rusty and the problem you are having with the keyless enter is the actuater is stuck so first of all spray the PB blast in the lock itself and put in the key and turn back and forth till you get it to free up and once you get the door open spray the inside lock and do the same on the other side
