SOURCE: I bought an Echo PB-250

The carburetor is exhibiting symptoms of flooding. Many different things can cause it, from a bad vent in the gas cap on the machine to bad seats on the L and H mixture screws of the carburetor. I suggest you remove the carburetor and clean it, (use NO harsh chemicals) and have it rebuilt. If it sat over the winter with old fuel in it, the diaphragms inside it are probably ruined. There are NEW ones in a rebuild kit.

Fuel starvation, start by replacing the fuel filter in the tank, check the fuel hoses for leaks up to the carb.

Car starts right up but 2 seconds dies, u can start it right up again & it dies again, won't run. has good spark & fuel pressure good when dies


You are on the right track by finding the injector pulse missing.
The computer grounds the injectors based on signals from the cam and crank sensors. You may have to use a scanner to check for trouble codes in the computer and watch the sensors work.
The problem could also be a relay or the key switch.

Runs but quits


Probably gummed up carb. If you don't want to try to rebuild the carb, then try adding a really good carb / fuel injector cleaner to the gas/oil mixture. don't forget to use a very small amount, then run the motor as fast as it will go for short periods of time to try and dissolve the gumming in the jets.

After I fixed a fuel line leak on my 01 v92 deluxe I can't get the bike to start. I put the full choke on and it will run for a few seconds and die. After that no matter where I put the choke it...


You probably either have too much gas or not enough.
If there is too much, the plugs will be wet, and you need to burn it off.
The full choke should not be kept on long, and you could also have an over flowing needle and seat in the carb.
If there is not enough gas, then you could still have a bad needle and seat, but could also have a bad fuel filter, bad tank vent, of you have water in the tank.

Weedeater dies when you open choke


After you start it and are in the second stage of the choke (half choke ) let it run for awhile until it warms a bit then try openning choke and going to full throttle.

Is there a choke setting and throttle setting for best results in getting the MTD yarde amchine started?


Most of the small outdoor power equipment that I have used takes the following to start:

1. Prime 6-8 times, or whatever the manual calls for.

2. Choke the carb to full choke.

3. Pull starter rope. It may sputter and die.

4. After it sputters and dies, put the choke on 1/2. Pull a time or 2 more and should start. Run like that 10 seconds or so, then take choke all the way off.

Last time I STARTED MY VSTAR 1100 I CHOKED IT FOR 10 SECONDS ON HIGH THEN MOVED TO MEDIUM CHOKE FOR 4 THEN TOOK OFF AT NO CHOKE. 2 WEEKS LATER. I started up bike Choke on high bike barely wanted to idle...


Sounds like your flooding it out with the choke out. Try the next time you go to start the bike when it's cold with the choke out and when it starts push the choke all the way in and keep it running with the throtle. If it runs better after doing this then your flooding it on start up. Use 1/2 choke to start cold and see what it does. Good Luck
