How do you start a 19th mtd riding mower


Put your left foot on the clutch pedal and push down all the way on the clutch. Move the throttle lever all the way to the top, this turns on the choke. Turn the key clockwise, to the right, to start the engine. Once the engine has started, move the throttle lever down to turn off the choke. You only need the choke when the engine is cold. If you use the choke while the engine is hot, you can flood the engine (too much gas) and this will fowl the spark plug. If you have flooded the engine, turn off the choke by lowering the throttle lever and try to start the engine a few times. If the engine doesn't start, then you may need to wait 20 to 30 minutes before trying to start the engine again. If the engine still does not start, then you can remove the spark plug to dry and to clean the spark plug. With the spark plug out, turn the key to the start position for 10 seconds, to push out excess fuel and fumes. Replace the spark plug and try starting the engine without turning on the choke.

Utomatic choke on


The 2003 Focus doesn't use a carburetor so there is no choke. What are the symptoms that makes you believe the choke is stuck on? Is there black smoke from the tailpipe when the engine is warmed up? The engine runs rough all the time when warm? I think we will need more information to help with your problem.

Sym red devil feels sluggish


Instructions
    • 1 Locate the red button on the top of the handlebars. This is called the "kill switch." When you pull it up the engine can run; when you push it down, the engine will shut off immediately.
    • 2 Pull the kill switch up.
    • 3 Turn the key to the "on" position.
    • 4 Make certain the cord running from the key is attached to the steering column. This device acts in the same manner as the kill switch - the engine will run only when it is secured.
    • 5 Pull the start cord, which looks like an enlarged lawnmower pull-cord and is generally found on the right side of the machine.
    • 6 Listen to the engine - if it starts, let it get going slowly . If it "pops" but does not continue to run, try pulling the start cord a few more times. If you do not hear the engine turn over at all, proceed to the next step.
    • 7 Find the pull tab under the right side of the handlebars. This is called the choke - it often has a circle with a diagonal line through it. The choke helps to start an engine when the weather is very cold or the machine hasn't been used in a while. When using the choke, try leaving it on only long enough to hear the engine fire a couple times, then return it to the "off" position. A choke left on too long can flood the engine.
    • 8 Place the choke in the vertical position - this is called the half choke position. Pull the start cord several times. If the engine fires up, place the choke back down to its original position and let it slowly warm up. If the engine still has trouble starting, proceed to the next step.
    • 9 Pull the choke 180 degrees from its original position - this is called the full choke. Pull the start cord until the engine sputters a couple times.
    • 10 Replace the choke to the original off position and continue to pull the cord. The engine should fire up and settle into a steady hum, ready for fun in the snow.

Flooding want start(New Carb)


Give the chainsaw a break by turning everything off. Flip off the on/off switch. Turn the throttle off. Push or pull the choke to the off position and deal with anything else that might need to be switched off (off is the key word). Some even suggest removing the spark plug, pulling the cord a couple of times, then replacing the plug.
By doing all this you will make the saw (and you) more comfortable and start the process of clearing a flooded engine. Just as important, you've given yourself a minute or two more to recoup.

Flooding usually prevents a saw from starting. Flooding is the major cause of a stalled chain saw engine. Flooding is caused by too much gas applied at the wrong time. You need to prevent or remedy the flooding effect. The rebooting step (step #2) will improve this condition. Another suggestion loggers make is pulling the engine's cord through 8 times with all systems off. I don't know if this actually drains the liquid gas or gives a bit more time to counteract the excess liquid gas but I am assured it works. Do it 8 times!

Now. Set the on/off switch in the "on" position. The throttle "on" position should be turned on only as a last resort. Actually, I am told some late-model chainsaws specifically instruct you to tweak the throttle - so do it if instructed. Put the choke to the "on" position. The procedure in step #3 helps clear the engine of too much "liquid" gasoline. Again, putting down the saw down for a cup of coffee or soda will sometimes do the same thing.
OK. Everything should be back on..

Make sure you have the choke in the "on" position. When you do, pull the engine cord several times through until the engine "pops" one time. A pop is a quick audible response and **** by the engine without cranking. Please, NO more than one pop with choke on or you risk another fatal flood.
PLACE THE CHOKE IN THE OFF POSITION NOW!

With the choke in the off position, pull the engine's crank cord through again. The engine should start in 1 to 3 pulls. Try it first without using the throttle control (unless recommended by the manufacturer). Colder weather or a saw just out of storage can complicate these instructions. Here is further advice from an About Forestry Forum poster: "If I haven't gotten a pop in four pulls I transition to the part throttle, no-choke position and if I haven't gotten a start in maybe 8 pulls I return to the choke position for one or two pulls. I am sure this varies with different chainsaws, but you shouldn't have to pull very many times in the choke position, even in cold weather."

1975 Datsun (ie. mechanical fuel pump). Carburettor, electrics (inc. battery all good) fuel strainer all good. On cold start engine needs to be cranked several times. Warm start is invariably immediate. ...


Carburated vehicles ether have an automatic choke, or the very old ones, a hand choke. Yours has an automatic choke. The starting problem likely is a problem with the choke. The problem is almost certainly not the fuel pump.To set the automatic choke, push the accelerator to the floor, and RELEASE. Then start the engine just like you would a fuel injected vehicle. If this doesn't solve the problem, then the automatic choke needs to be repaired.

1981 dodge power ram carb problem with choke sticking and deisling some times at shut off


One problem is related to the other.The dieseling is caused by a rich air/fuel mixture which is caused by the closing choke.So you need to adjust the choke to where it is slightly open when the engine is cold.If it is electric then it has a thermostatic device that positions the choke just cracked open when cold and slowly opens as the engine heats up.Whats happening is the choke may actually be loose and when the engine shuts off the vacuum pulls the choke close creating the combustable rich fuel mixture(if you watched the choke when someone else turns off the engine you'll see the choke flapping while the engine is dieseling).Try putting a screw driver in the carb(with engine running) blocking the choke from closing.Then shut the engine off.It shouldnt diesel.You may have to replace the carb thermostat
