    I had to replace the carb, tryed to clean with no luck. Honda dealer said it a common problem passage ways are so small they sometimes need to drill them out. I removed the gas each year there is no fuel filter on this snow blower just a screen in the tank so I added an in line filter. The machine is 8 years old this is the first repairs I had to do.

    Thank you

Yes you can adjust the throttle cable, did you leave gas in it over the season, if you did this is definitley the problem, dump out the gas and pour new.

    you may be losing compression in the motor, does the compression feel strong when you pull start? if you tried to adjust the throttle and still no avail, it probably is the engine, the piston rings go bad.

I installed a new GX 390 Honda engine in a Toro 413 TX machine. Motor starts, idles and full throttle fine, but when hydraulics,i.e. drive is engaged, motor dies.

you have a dingo, ugh
I would suspect a bad pump or wheel motor if the rpms are set correctly and no safety switches are causing it to die...

Honda snowblower engine hunting

Sounds like you are hitting the governor. Watch the arms at the carb when you move it to full throttle. The arm should hit a screw. Turn this screw clockwise, until the reving stops.

Rpms up and down/idlind


il give you a list of problems it could be...its a problem that could come from a wide range of sensors etc

try changing your TPS (throttle positioning sensor) its located on the intake area (look where the throttle cable hooks to the engine) Possibility of a fuel pressure regulator problem. Also a faulty Idle Air Control motor (IAC) could cause the problem. computer may need to be reset. (disconnect the battery for bout 15 mins) possibly a vacuum leak...check hoses, you may need to replace your intake maniflod gasket

Rpms up and down when driving on low speeds

did they check radiator cap? Or your reservoir? My car did same thing, they flushed air out of cooling system, and replaced thermostat.
