Starting procedure

Terry: According to

  • Put on a pair of safety glasses. Remove the fuel cap from the Weed Eater and set it aside. Fill the fuel tank with unleaded gasoline that has been mixed with quality 2-stroke oil in a 40:1 ratio. Replace the fuel cap.
  • Move the Weed Eater to a safe place and lay it flat on the ground. Depress the fuel bulb located beneath the carburetor approximately six times to prime the engine. Press it slowly so that fuel has adequate time to traverse the fuel line.
  • Slide the handlebar-mounted engine "On/Stop" switch to the "On" position. Slide the choke lever beneath the fuel tank to the "Full" position.
  • Depress the "Throttle Lock" lever located beside the engine "On/Stop" switch. Keeping the lever depressed, squeeze the throttle trigger. Release the throttle lock. This sequence holds the trigger in the depressed position, which aids in starting the Weed Eater.
  • Roll the Weed Eater so that it is resting on the engine and the trimmer head shield only. This will allow the spinning trimmer head to avoid contact with the ground. Brace the Weed Eater by holding it to the ground with one hand. Using your other hand, pull the starter rope quickly until the engine begins to run. Do not pull the rope more than a dozen times. If it fails to start by then, squeeze the throttle trigger and continue to pull until the engine starts.
  • Allow the Weed Eater to warm up for about 15 seconds, then slide the choke lever to the "Off" position. Let the trimmer run for another minute without touching the throttle lever. After the Weed Eater has warmed up, squeeze the throttle trigger once to disengage the throttle lock. The trimmer is now operational.

    Why does 200hp mercury not srart first start of day

    You have to follow the starting procedure to avoid flooding.
    1. Pump primer bulb until firm
    2. Advance throttle 1/4
    3. Turn key to "on" and push in 6 or 7 times. This primes the
    engine by injecting fuel directly to the crankcase
    4. Start engine.

    Truck dies when idling

    first I would like to tell you, do this procedure only if the 5th digit of your VIN is C or K.


    The engine control module (ECM) learns the idle position of the throttle plate to ensure the correct idle. Anytime the throttle body is cleaned or replaced, the ECM must learn the new throttle position. The idle may be unstable or a DTC may set if the throttle position is not learned.

    Conditions for Running the Throttle Learn Procedure

    • DTCs P0101, P0102, P0103, P0107, P0108, P0111, P0112, P0113, P0506, and P0507 are not set.

    • The engine speed is between 450-4,000 RPM.

    • The manifold absolute pressure (MAP) is greater than 5 kPa.

    • The mass air flow (MAF) is greater than 2 g/s.

    • The ignition 1 voltage is greater than 10 volts.

    Throttle Learn

    Important: Do NOT perform this procedure if DTCs are set. Refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code

    (DTC) List - Vehicle.

    1. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.

    2. With a scan tool, monitor desired and actual RPM.

    3. The ECM will start to learn the new idle cells and Desired RPM should start to decrease.

    4. Ignition OFF for 60 seconds.

    5. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.

    6. After the 3 minute run time the engine should be idling normal.

    Important: During the drive cycle the check engine light may come on with idle speed DTCs. If idle speed codes are set, clear codes so the ECM can continue to learn.

    * If the engine idle speed has not been learned the vehicle will need to be driven at

    speeds above 70 km/h (44 mph) with several decelerations and extended idles.

    7. After the drive cycle, the engine should be idling normally.

    * If the engine idle speed has not been learned, turn OFF the ignition for 60 seconds

    and repeat step 6.
    8. Once the engine speed has returned to normal, clear DTCs.
    Good Luck
