How do I find out if the fuel filter is clogged in my 05 Turbo PT Cruiser? After running out of gas (and now with a full tank) the engine starts up great drives for several miles then chokes up and dies. ...


run the fault codes and check for canister purge valve solenoid fault . IF the filter is blocked it stays blocked . What you have is a problem that when the engine requires sufficient fuel there isn't enough and so it dies . After stopping what ever is causing the shortage is relaxed and so it starts and goes until the problem unit is activated again (Vacuum in the fuel tank)

My 1998 Suzuki gsx 600 only starts ion full choke and won't stay running off of choke unless I run it about 20 min. Even then it dies off of choke what could be the issue?


What you have here is a fuel to air ratio issue. You are getting to much air to the engine and that is causing it to die when the choke is off. There is a screw that you can adjust for the air mixture, and this may take a little time to correct as it is a trial and error thing. All bikes are going to be a little different, even if they are manufactured by the same company. I hope that this information was useful as that is my goal.

Carburetor?


Try cleaning the carbs. Does the engine run any better with the choke on? If so the carbs need cleaning.

John Deere LA145 B&S 22Horsepower engine starting and running


You may simply need a new fuel cap,vacuum in the tank will rob your fuel and stall it engine,try taking off the fuel cap and see how it runs.If this does not help you may need a new fuel pump,which runs off of crank case pressure and should take over from the choke once the tractor has started.

Sounds like the carb needs to be rebuilt. Those tiny jets will clog easily and need to be replaced. The diaphragm is also a large part of bogging and dieing. Hope this helps.
