Raw gas in exhaust

Sounds to me if its a rotten egg kind of smell I would be looking at the catalytic converter. If its a fuel smell I would be looking for a possible external leak . You can do this by setting the emergency brake vehicle in park and rotate the key to the on position. You will hear a hum as the fuel pump kicks in, follow your fuel lines from the tank to the manifold. You may have to cycle the key every few minutes cause the pump will not run continuously. Genarally with a stuck injector you would get an engine light either because of a miss fire code an emmision code for runnig to rich. If no engine light focus on external leak.

My Generac GP5000 generator runs great for about 4 minutes until it heats up then it starts cutting out and backfiring until it ultimately dies and wont restart until it cools down. the generator has...

If it is new and under warranty, talk to Generac about getting it fixed.

If it is old and unused, it probably needs fuel system cleaned out. Carb needs to be removed and cleaned inside and out, fuel lines need flushing, filter changed and if it has an automatic choke, it needs to be checked because it sounds like it is stuck on.

Need to replace both fuel lines on My BVM200 LE leaf blower, 1 large and 1 small fuel line, can You tell what size they are??

On your blower, it looks like the small line supplies fuel to the carburator which will be connected to the fuel filter in the tank, and the large line looks like the fuel return line.

Back fireing through carbarator will not start and vacume lines

this year of car has throttle body injection not a carburetor,the backfiring could be the fuel pump relay not allowing the pump to power up,or a plugged fuel filter,or a bad fuel injector,if their isn`t at least 15lbs fuel pressure the injectors will not open to spray fuel

Will start but will not run in less gas is poured into carbarator

Not getting fuel, if it will only run by adding fuel. With it off, look down the carb and open the throttle, you should see a fuel spray inside. It sounds like fuel not getting to the carb. Probably fuel pump!
