SOURCE: oil in air cleaner

Run it minus an air filter until all the oil is off your piston head, you can also try keeping the plug out and ejecting the oil via that access by pulling the cord. It seems like you've already solved the problem, now you're just cleaning up.

I have a 2005 Honda spirit 1100 starts and idles great dies when you rev it up. I pulled carbs cleaned jets with carb cleaner. It will rev up now but sluggish and a little popping out the tail pipe. Was...

Depending on where exactly you are experiencing hesitation. The pilot jet will control idle and off idle transitions, from there the main jet will be responsible for fuel delivery at anything beyond 1/4 throttle openings.

Without looking at your carbs specifically my guess is that your issue would more likely be stuck slides or damaged diaphragms rather than dirty jets, so be sure to clean those and then check their operation with compressed air.

You haven't installed an aftermarket exhaust or a non-stock air filter have you? these can also cause the kind of problems you're having, and will require you set up the carb properly to be used with them.

I have a 2000 CR 250, has always ran perfect and now will not start or fire. It has spark and is getting fuel to the carb(cleaned it spotless) air filter clean also. Fuel is fresh (use non-ethanol Supreme)...

Try starting it with a brief spray of ether into the intake. If it runs briefly it indicates a fuel/carb problem.

If it doesn't run the problem could be spark related, poor induction due to crank seals or other air leaks or perhaps oil is settling in the crankcase and corrupting the incoming charge.

2008 mtd lawnmower tries to start when sprayed with carb cleaner but stops after 3 seconds

If the spark plug is in great condition, remove and clean the carburetor. This will require soaking if needed with a good solvent or carb cleaner and compressed air to blow out the tiny passages that are clogged for the idle jet circuit and high speed circuit.

Saw wont idle ..runs fine at full throttle

If it runs good at full throtte its the carburtor it needs to be cleaned . Drop the float bowl clean the needle valve its the one that the floats make move up and down disconnect the fuel line and spray carb cleaner thruogh that and also clean your air filter . This should fix all and you kind of have to do this as regular maintaintes . Its always the carburators with the little 2 strokes and the air intake

Lawnmower wont start

your carbeurator is gummed up. a common problem after the lack of use in the winter season. Since you havve a new plug you are partway home. Empty out any old fuel and put in new fuel which you buy now at the gas station. Then buy a can of carbeurator cleaner. Remove the air filter. Look and see if it is dirty, if it is replace it also. Spray two short ssquirts of carbeurator cleaner into the air intake opening exposed while the air filter is removed.

Pull the cord and try to start the engine. Even if it won't start you will be drawing the cleaner into the carb. so it can start to dissolve the problem gummy deposits. Wait half hour and repeat the spray and the attempt to start. If this fails after four attempts you will probably have to remove the carb. and soak it in carb. cleaner for three hours to dissolve the gum.

Mower starts up great and then dies

If it's a briggs engine, sounds like you have water / debris in your carb fuel bowl. Using spray carb cleaner will only work if you remove the bowl and clean the carb jets. Also, you could have water in the gas tank as well. First, remove your air filter, then remove the 3 screws that attach your filter bracket to your carburator and mower. Take off your fuel line at the carb and drain all your gas into a clear jar. If it looks very yellow, cloudy, or see water in the bottom of the jug, change your gas. Using a half inch socket wrench, after gas line is disconnected, remove the fuel bowl and clean with carb cleaner. Also, examine the bolt you just removed. There are 2 jets in the side and one at the end. Using the carb cleaner, make sure they are clean as well. Use the carb cleaner extension tube to spray up inside the bottom center of the carb, where the bolt threads, to clean that area as well. After all this make sure ur float assembly is intact and reassemblt the bowl to the carb and reattach the the fuel line. finish bt reattaching the air filter support bracket makinf sure the gasket between the carb and the bracket isn't damaged.

1986 toyota pickup starts wont stay running

It seems there is some kind of air entering the carburator where its not required to do so or the idling soleniod switch is malfunctioning, thus not allowing the air to enter for the engine to idle .
Also recheck the vaccum pipes if they are correctly refitted per the schematics under the hood.More over remove the idling switch and blow some air to the hole probabley theres some kind of obstruction over there .

Good Luck.

Engine wont open up to full throttle without stalling

sometimes carb cleaner isn't enough. It is best to use cleaner and compressed air to clean out all the jets. I bet you still have trash in the high speed jet that cleaner alone won't get out

Petrol lawnmower cutting out.

try changing the spark plug. if that doesnt work check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. also check the primer bulb for pin holes and proper seating/seal.
