Tune up ryobi ry26520

When trying to speed up the engine, it wants to die.It has been"tuned up" each year for the past two years and runs fine for a while and then starts doing the above again. At thirty dollars a tune up, I'll soon have more in repairs than the original cost.

SOURCE: My Ryobi 15" ElectricTrimmer ZRRY41002 Not Operable

[The previous posted solution was garbled by the forum software.]

I was thinking about purchasing this product from Amazon sometime soon (today being 4-26-2008). However after reading of the above problems I am not so sure anymore. However I did find a discussion about this problem at the Ryobi forums at " ". (If the link does not work go to " " and do a search for " 597 ". One of the displayed threads will be entitled "weedeater problem?" It will have the proper link to the discussion.) From the multiple postings in that thread it appears that the switch is the problem and it seems to be a consistent problem for many users. The switch itself can be replaced for less than $4, however the shipping seems to drive the cost up to anywhere from $12 to $15, unless one can find a local supplier. I hope that this helps.

SOURCE: RX300 Engine Stalls when I take foot off the gas pedal.

The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve is clogged. This part feeds air to the engine at start-up and idle when the throttle bodies are closed. I removed the throttle body assembly from my 2001 RX300 and separated it from the IAC. After a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner the IAC was good as new. I later decided to replace it during routine maintenance. You can pick up a brand new IAC on eBay (genuine Lexus/Toyota part). The dealer will want upwards of $400.00 for a 45 minute job (all you need are basis hand tools).

SOURCE: I bought a Sears edger #536 796526. It dies on me.

Hi Tom. You are not doing anything wrong. That being said, your edger has a slightly gummed up carbeurator. I would go to an auto parts store and get a can of a product called seafoam. this is a gasoline additive. Add one ounce per gallon of gas and use this as the fuel for your edger. You will solve your problem in just a few minutes after using this product, I believe. Give it a try and let me know.

My 2007 Cadillac SRX feels like it needs a tune up. It runs so rough and misses & sputters. Driving at low speeds it barely moves. Yet the check engine light isn't on. The car only has 67000 miles...

First when was last tune up? that's a place to start. But for the sputter/miss sounds like a case of moisture/condensation in your fuel. Not necessarily bad gas but with big temp swings moisture and condensation build up. Try running a bottle of STP gas treatment through and see if that helps.

1987 Ecoline van V-8 engine hasn't been started in about 7 years. It ran good before that. What do I have to do first to start it and get it running?

I would change all the fluids and either try dry gas or i would recommend that the gas tank be thoroughly drained and new gas put in the tank.If you have a hard time getting started try to use starter fluid in carburetor or if you have none just use gas. If the vehicle is equipped with fuel injectors locate air filter and follow air duct to engine that is where starter fluid or gasoline will have to be pored to prime the injectors.if it don't start the engine should be tuned up with a major tune up replace all filters ect even if it starts without tune up i would tune it up asap!
