SOURCE: starts with choke but dies

if you reach down inside the fuel tank with a wire and pull out te fuel line there should be a fuel filter on the end of that. replace the fuel filter and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: saw starts then dies. Changed fuel ine soaked carb

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Was the carburetor disassembled when soaked and did you use compressed air to blow out all passages? If the carburetor jet screws have been moved, preset them as follows: Turn both H and L screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW each screw 1-1/2 turns. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine speeds up somewhat but 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

I have a Troy Bilt trimmer model TB675EC...4 cycle engine. Problem that has arisen is that it dies at high speed and under load. Starts up and runs at idle well.

Fuel starved, carb should have an idle adjustment which sounds like it is fine. Look for the second adjustment

When you start the engine, put it in reverse a strong odor of exhaust can be smelled, backing out from a parking space, then putting it into drive it will shake violently and die, then it is hard to r

Check if your exhaust or catalytic converter has a blockage. You may need to disconnect the exhaust somewhere before the cat. Or try taking out the oxygen sensor and run it for a moment. It will be noisy, but if it runs better, the cat is probably plugging up.

When starting the car, its runs fine for a moment then it seems like when the motor starts warming up it is right on the brink of dieing so i then have to feather the throttle to try and bring it back

now with all of these facts do it spend alots of gas than usual ?
to fix the problem change some thing is called oxygen sensor and your problem is done ;)

Yamaha wave runner dies at high rpms.

An engine that dies under load but starts ok and idles ok has a fuel blockage in the main jet . Possible from water in the fuel in the carby. Water will not pass through the jet and blocks up the hole A trick that is used is to place a pint of metholated spirits in with the fuel. It breaks down the surface tension of the water and allows it to pass through the jet.

I have fresh gas and sparkplug. Machine started to die under heavier loads. I now have to run it at the slowest speed to get the job done. That is when I changed the spark plug but it did not run any...

Check the air cleaner first before making any carb adjustments. If under load it isn't getting enough air it will choke down. If the mower is low on oil it will die under load to protect itself from blowing up. Remove the air cleaner and look in the carb to see if the choke is opening and closing properly when you operate the cable. There is a linkage that often vibrates loose and it may not be connected.
As you an see there are multiple things that can be causing this problem. Try one at a time to see if you can get it to run properly.
