Question about Garden
Ok now when I first start the trimmer cold I put it on full choke of course then when I hear it pop or act like it wants to start then I put it on half choke and so on. It will start sometimes but when it does start it will run only for like maybe 5 seconds then cuts right off everytime it starts. I just got finished taking the carburetor apart then soaking it the carburetor cleaner yea know the little paint looking can with the basket in it by gunk. And it still is doing the same thing. I am thinking vapor lock but I tried to start it with the cap of o yea and I tried starting it with the muffler off also and still the same symptoms please help thank you.
First you may want to check your fuel that is in the tank, how old is the fuel and was there any old fuel in the tank before you put fresh fuel in? Todays gas isn't as good as it used to be the ethonol in fuel is eating pretty much anything that is made of rubber in our 2 & 4 cycle engines cleaning doesn't always help. You may want to try a rebuild kit for it. And re-adjust the high and low idle needles (jets).
