Toro snowblower won't start - model 38182

Started well until just lately and now will only stay running when I press the priming bulb, as if it has no gas. Prior to this it ran at half choke only and then got better the next time, odd. Does this have a fuel filter or is this a carb float issue? My mix is correct and I've replaced the spark plug.

SOURCE: engine starts and runs fine until i run about 5 pieces of branch

what color is the fire at the sparkplug? if it is blue it is good, if it's red that means that your spark is weak probably your coil is weak replace your coil

Testimonial: " Sounds reasonable. I will check this tomorrow.thanks a lot"

SOURCE: When I have the choke fully on, the engine in my snowblower runs. When I take it off choke, it sputters and stops. The fuel line is clear and there is no fuel filter that I can find.

The mixture settings on the carburetor may be off. Cleaning the carburetor and having the mixture settings adjusted may help. The fuel delivery is not an issue since choking increases the fuel/air ratio, i.e. adds more fuel for the same amount of air. Also worth checking the seals on the intake components, since excess air could be leaking in after the carburetor.

Have no spark to plugs


Those sensors have no effect on spark. Did you replace the plug, if not remove it hold it against the engine, have someone pull cord, watch for spark. If you have spark then you have a fuel problem. If no spark then after replacing plug, then remove stop wire from magneto side. Pull cord an watch for spark. If no spark then remove housing an flywheel, measure gap between mag an flywheel. Check to make sure magnets are still on flywheel. Call some shop or check a service manual on gap setting. If no spark still you will need to replace the magneto. This is rare an its is more likely a plug that needs replacing. Toro snowblowers are nice machines, this is not a hard fix. Really to tackle this is starting with the plug.

Is it coming from the carb or tank? Either way replace the fuel lines, they crack an get pin holes in them an cause problems. If it comes from the carb get a rebuild kit an, very cheap, an replace the seals.

I USED TO WORK AT A HARDWARE STORE AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ALWAYS HAD TROUBLE WITH 2 CYCLE ANYTHINGS(GAS & OIL MIX).IF IT IS AN ELECTRIC START MAKE A FRESH MIX OF GAS AND OIL TO SPECS BUT USE A LITTLE MORE OIL THAN INSTRUCTED(THIS WILL NOT HURT THE ENGINE).ADD THE GAS AND OIL MIX TO TANK. PUT CHOKE TO FULL, PRIME IT 5 OR 6 TIMES PLUG IN THE ELECTRIC START AND PRESS THE BUTTON AND HOLD IT DOWN 'TIL YOU HEAR THE ENGINE START TO REVOLVE.THIS MAKE TAKE A FEW TIMES BUT IT WORKED FOR ME.YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BEING THAT THE ENGINE MAYBE SEIZED ANYWAY. GOOD LUCK !!
