    Most common-; Old ,bad gas; contaminated fuel, water; dirt or corrosion internally. If ethanol/methanol infused fuel it can if potent enough eat/etch carburator. Try spraying in a little starting fluid. If it revs up and runs much better than remove carb and clean/rebuild. It may take a few times to get it clean or the piece of whatever cleared out.Try different carb if available. Most carbs cost as much as a replacement economical mower. Know your limit and move on.

Lawn mower missing with new plug and 10% ethanol gasoline

small engines are not keen on ethanol. Some won't do E85 either.
Try to find straight gas. see if that helps. if your mower is older you may have to set the magneto gap. put a business card between magnet(on flywheel) and the "E" coil. Loosen screws the magnet will pull the coil against the flywheel. Tighten those screws and that's it.
Please get back if problems persist. we want to help.

Toro Model 20041 sputters and stalls out; If I cover the primer bulb the engine will rev up and run. Also the mower won't start unless I clean the spark plug. What do I need to do?

Most likely you'll have to remove the bowl nut, under the carb's bowl. You'll most likely find varnish in the jet, or maybe water. These are some typical jets, Tecumseh. Briggs, similar (baymee Lehigh Valley PA, 2009).

Hi Mrcherry99, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service department and inquire about any possible quick fix. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if possible, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.
