    Sounds like you need a new diaphragm in the carburator and carburator rebuild.

Also, increase the amout of oil you're putting in your gasm sometimes if it's too little it will cause stalling

The carb low idle needs to be adjusted this is fairly common among the Poulan chain saws. Once you adjust the low idle from factory setting it will work

    You will have to play with it and see. Adjust it in 1/4 of a turn if it still dies then back it out 1/2 turn and just keep doing that. Every machine is different another thing that you can do is try to get it running semi ok, you can give it little throttle and adjust the idle. Also just to make sure, do check your chain tension you should be able to see the teeth on the bottom of the chain. But this doesnt sound like a chain tension problem

My 2007 FXDB cuts off at stops after getting hot. Restarts readily but seems to fire off really hard. Will idle fine after restart but next stop dies again.


First off I would raise the idle just a bit.

If you have been getting gasoline with 10% ethanol that could cause the slower idle that lets the engine die.

One more thing could be the gas cap is not venting to let air in. You need to be at a stop for this. Don't try it while riding.

Crack the gas cap loose just a hair so it can breathe. If that fixes the problem, get a new cap.

One thing I do every 5,000 miles that has proven beneficial. I go to the Dodge dealer and buy a bottle of carburetor/injector cleaner. Not the kind with mineral spirits, get the really good one with naphtha. I have only found naphtha one time at an auto parts store. you can try looking there if you wish but I doubt you will find it.

The saw is a poulan 3416 ,2 yr old, purchased new. the problem is starts ok 6 primer pushes idles ok then will either die after first cut or as soon as you pull trigger


Run too lean, this is fuel starvation, remove the fuel line from the tank and replace the filter on the end, check the fuel hose from the tank up to the carb for leaking or cracking.

Starts great idels great give it gas and it dies


This is probably an engine using a carburetor. If it starts and idles good and dies when the accelerator is pressed it is probably the accelerator pump on the carburetor. The accelerator pump supplies the fuel to operate the engine in this transition period from idle to part throttle until the venturi effect catches up to draw the necessary fuel the engine needs to continue running at the current demanded rate of speed. If the butterflies are opened and there is not sufficient fuel squirted into the engine when larger amounts of air are in demand it starves for fuel and thus stalls.If it is fuel injected then you have other problems, but my guess is it is a carburetor version. Ford went to fuel injection in 1990. You can just purchase the power valve if needed. You don't need the complete kit. Good luck

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.

The engine sputters and dies when it heats up. Is this Vapor lock? On cold start it works great and idles just fine but as it heats, the engine starts choking and soon dies out. If this is vapor lock, how...


sounds like the reason it starts and idles fine at start up is your choke is functioning... as your vehicle warms up.. the choke starts to kick off... Inspect your throttle body and idle control motor.

My audi 80 starts idles for a few minuets and then dies unless i pump the gas harshly.As soon as I take my foot off the gas it dies.I've checked airfilter,sparkplugs,rotor and distributor cap.No luck...


There is a screw near the throttle body on the upper left corner of the engine, if you are looking at it from the bumper. This controls your idle speed. Over time this screw can move and may need re-adjustment. After turning the screw SLIGHTLY to the right, you should increase your idle speed to just over 1000 rpm. Then your problem should go away.
