If the gas was in the tank for more then a few months it is very possible the Carburetor jet is slightly clogged

Remove the float bowl located under the carburetor it is a 1/2 bolt some gas will poor out so put a rag under the carb to soak up the gas, you actually may want to use a small container to collect the gas or make sure the gas tank is empty, remove the float bowl after removing the bolt by grasping it and turning, the bowl will most likely have debree and water in it clean with a rag and solvent and reinstall, becareful of the ruuber ring gasket when reinstalling the float bowl, one some movers there is no float bowl if you have this type of engine the tank and carb must be removed disassembled and clean out. Do not store mowers uncovered they must be covered when not in use, water gets into the fuel system and causes this problem.

SOURCE: Lawn mower is sputtering while mowing.

Take a flash lite an look in the tank. You may have debris on the screen. Then also you may have dirt in the float bowl that gets sloched around and covers the main jet. This question is a hard one to answer without being there. You didnt specify what machine.

SOURCE: I have a Troy Bilt 675 lawn mower, won't start.

is the gas in the tank old? if so, try to drain it and put fresh gas in. Pull the spark plug to make sure it is not fouled and replace it or put in a new one. Check to make sure that you do not have the mixture or choke set to run too rich or too lean. If you are at an altitude above 2,500 feet you need to run more lean to compensate.

SOURCE: I evidently put too much oil in the Proulan Pro

First thing is to remove the excess oil. Take out as much as you need to to get to the line on the dipstick. Next, you may want to use a little WD-40 or similar cleaner to spray into the spark plug hole to thin the oil in there. Replace the spark plug and start the machine a number of times until it runs correctly. Using WD-40, remember the term "little". Good luck...Lee

Why would my lawn mower be sputtering


Most likely due to water in the fuel tank, drain and replace with fresh fuel. When stored for more than 2 weeks put an ethanol treatment in the fuel to prevent the ethanol from turning into water. If this doesn't clear the problem up your carburator may need to be cleaned.

When mower is cranked, the enigine spits and sputters and balck smoke comes out from the side.


Did you hit something hard with your mower; like a stump or a rock? It sounds like your timing may be off. There is a key under the flywheel that is designed to break off if you hit something so that it doesn't bend the crank shaft on your mower. If that key breaks off, your mower will go out of timing and spit, sputter and backfire when you try to start it. Best of luck to you.

Hello, i have a pulan pro pr45y22sa and it runs like it has a cam shaft for a drag car. changed plug and didnt change a thing. seems to be fuel starvation?


Sounds like a carb cleaning is in order. Also, since that engine's carburetor has no float bowl, the gas tank becomes an integral part of the carb system. I think that mower has the plastic carb that sits on the gas tank. between the carb and the tank, there is a gasket and diaphragm assembly which can get weak or punctured and needs to be replaced on an older engine. Better left to a pro if you're not so inclined. But if you're a do it yourselfer then I've found it is best to remove the gas tank and carb first (after removing the air filter box). Then remove the carb with the 5 Phillips screws. Be careful of the little spring that is between the two; don't lose it. Also, make note of the linkage springs and where they attach. Spray out the carb with Gumout and replace the diaphragm/gasket if needed ($3USD). Check the cutouts in the top of the tank and spray them out (clean with a brush if needed). This will fix most fuel problems on these engines. Hope this helps and best of luck. .
