Mine had the same problem. it got better after diluting my gas mixture. it is supposed to be 40 to one ratio. I added a little mor gas to the jug and it runs better now. Bottom line is the mixture has to be right on. Too rich will give you the problem you mentionned. not rich enough might burn out the engine.

You may have a weak fuel pump diaphram in the carb. It may be a partially pluged fuel line in the
tank. It may also be a pluged muffler. Good luck.

1985 Ford Ranger 2.3 starts and idles good. But when put in gear dies until it reaches full temp.


Hmm...........

Probably carb? Automatic choke not working? Remove air filter and spray carb with cleaner, Make sure all parts move freely. With engine cold, check automatic choke position. Start and check function as it warms up.

Stihl FS85 starts fine, But not take full throttle


Pumping the primer bubble while the engine is running should cause the engine to over fuel and stall (if the tuning is correct). Sounds like its not fueling enough, pumping the primer is forcing fuel through the carb causing the engine to pick up rev's, but this is soon exhausted which is why it wont rev on the throttle.
* Check that the fuel line is not damaged and drawing in air. (if this is intact try the next step)
* Strip and clean the carb. Replace any diaphrams if needed.
* Check gaskets seal between carb, air filter and cylinder.

Just out of curiosity what standard carb settings did you use.?

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

The car starts fine and responds to throttle for about 5 mins then starts coughing and stalls starts up again straight away then repeats


you did'nt specify what year,engine size, or model. but what you describe,is a common poblem.the engine idle control sensor may be bad.is your check engine light "on"? this may be why the lights on. but the light may not be on at all, and the idle control sensor may still be bad. it starts fine, then idles fine for awhile,until you put it into gear to drive it,then it sputters,or dies. or else you start it and then put it into drive on the clear road,then give it full throttle gas on the floor,it takes off fine and runs great,until you come to stop sign or red light,then it dies? suspect a bad idle control sensor 1st then suspect clogged fuel injectors. which can be cleaned easily by adding sea foam,or lucas fuel injector cleaner to your fuel tank. no service fees due. thank you for choosing fixya.com. we always look forward to assisting you in your needs,automotive,or just about anything you need assistance with,fixya.com can assist you with! and again,thank you for choosing fixya.com!

sounds like the reason it starts and idles fine at start up is your choke is functioning... as your vehicle warms up.. the choke starts to kick off... Inspect your throttle body and idle control motor.

Inspect the fuel line in the tank, it should be long enough to fall to the bottom of the tank whatever the operating position. It sounds like it may not be picking up fuel in a certain position.
