Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer
My snowblower has sat for 7 years without running. i tookthecarberatour off and cleaned it. now, when i start it, the enginesurgesand no matter how much i adjust the carb i can't get it to runevenly.any ideas?
Hi roaddoctor86; I suspect that your carb is the source of your problem in the fuel system. I always drain the fuel in my 2 cycle and even 4 cycle engines and then start them and run them dry, before I put them up for the winter/. I would suggest you drain the tank or at least take most of the gas out and then add a can of gas treatment/solvent and see if that helps. Something like Heet I think is one product.
Hope this helps good Luck Loriongh ps Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks

I aggree, you do have a carburetor problem, Loringh gave great advise for preventive maintenance but the damage already is done to your carb. You may be best of by just buying a new carb to get your snowblower working again. The old carb may need complete refurbishment. I believe just letting it sit in some sort of carb cleaner does not do the trick, I tried that myself and the carb still did not work right.
I tried cooking it in distilled water for an hour and still did not help, save yourself the aggrevation and just buy a new one and your back in business.
Hope this helps
