If the primer buld is hard to push or wont return to shape like its supposed to then there is an obstruction in the carb. If it just wont move fuel then there is a hole in the fuel line or the fuel line is rotted off in the tank.
If the primer bulb itself is discolored ( should be clear not brown) it should also be replaced.

Toro Power Clear 418 ZE Snow Blower won't stay started


The main jet of your carb is clogged and you need to open carb and clear the obstruction - spray carb cleaner on the bolt that holds the gas container to bottom of carb - also spray all the innards along with any tube that protrudes into the gas can.

Then using air compressor blow the sucker out and reassemble. That should do it.

My blower sounds like the carburator or something is loose and it won't start easily and when it does it won't stay on or doesn't have good power


With the unit off, grab the carburetor and see if anything is moving. Sound like the cylinder may be loose. Before tightening cylinder screws check if the gasket is damage. If yes then change gasket.

There could well be a build up of sediment and debris in the main jet to the carburetor. It is easy to get to and clean. It is the brass bolt that holds the lower float bowl onto the main body of the carburetor. To clean it, drain your gas. Remove the bolt and external washer UNDER the carburetor bowl. Clean out the bowl of any sediment and/or water. To clean the brass bolt, use no metal objects. Carb/Choke aerosol spray cleaner will do the job. Pay close attention to the hole in the bottom of the bolt and the very small holes about 2/3 of the way up the bolt. Clean till shiny with holes cleared and reinstall. Your fuel flow problem and shut off condition may be solved.

Starts but after of running a while will not restart the more i prime the pump it starts and runs nothing else wrong with it


There is no priming of anything

If your talking cycling the key to start the
fuel pump,then maybe the fuel pump
is worn & not building pressure, to always
start the car quickly

The TPS Sensor moves a you push the gas
pedal. It may be worn

There is no corrolation to your foot & fuel issues

Those where the carburator days over 25 years ago
