2 year old gas in tank. tiller won't stay running

I can get to tiller to start by spraying a quick start spray to the carb intake area. It runs for 30 seconds, then stops. I have drained the old gas from the tank. Add new gas and an appropriate amount Gumout (a product used to clean the gas line).

When you drained the gas from the gas tank did you also take the carb apart and clean it. There should be a bowl that the fuel line from the gas tank goes to. There is a float in that bowl that has to go up and down to regulate how much gas goes into the engine. You may have a build up of varnish from old gas on the piece that the float moves up and down. Also there should be an idle jet that you screw in and out to adjust the idle. That also could be junked up.

My 5 hp craftsman tiller won't stay running changed gas sprayed carb new plug started it ran ok next day starts won't stay running dies fast like no fuel but can smell gas.


when it dies see if it will restart using a shot of starting spray in the air cleaner if it starts or sputters, sounds as if you have a plugged up carb you will need to dissasemble and soak in white vinegar for a few hours to un clogg (carefull with any gaskets)
if still nothing even with spray then you have a weak/defective coil or dammaged spark plug (start with plug replacement)

Generator Won't start


Gap the plug at .030 What is most likely the main problem is whatever gas sat in the carb. Even with fresh gas there will be some old gas still in the float bowl. You may be able to drain the bowl and be OK but I have a feeling that the carb will need to come off and be disassembled and cleaned properly. You can try spraying carb cleaner (I dislike starting fluid as it is too volatile and carb cleaner does just as well in this instance) into the carb/intake. Remove the air filter, open the choke, and spray the carb cleaner in through that way if possible. You can actually keep an engine running by spraying with short bursts. Even by just spraying once you should be able to get the engine to start. If it does start but then will not stay running without spraying more into the engine then it is a carb problem.

My generator won't start. I started it when I first got it about a year ago. It's been in my garage for about a year.


Remove and clean/check/replace the spark plug first, spray some WD-40 in the cylinder, Remove all old fuel and just fill with enough fuel to run it. If you are comfortable removing the carb then it should be dipped/cleaned. Check to ensure the kill switch is not engaged/unplugged. Lemmee know then we can go further!

My engine won't start, only 2 hours of use. Looks like it's flooding.i thought my gas might be bad. Drained tank and filled with fresh 91 octane. Help, jon


if it sat through the winter with the gas in it its probabbly that the carb is clogged. if that is the case then you will have to take it apart and clean it out. the old gas will break down and seize the needle up on the float and not allow it to get gas. try to bottle feed it with starting fluid. take the air filter off and keep spraying it in the intake. if it runs then that the problem. if you need help taking it apart just ask.

I have had good luck using an engine starting fuel, sprayed into the air cleaner/intake. Any auto repair store will carry this product. CAUTION, HIGHLE FLAMMABLE!!!!!!! Many mechanics frown on using starting fluids, but I have a bad shoulder & that is what I do on the 3rd pull.

Mantis tiller starts but will not stay running


Carburetor problem. Two stroke engines use oil mixed with gas. Old fuel or setting over the winter will cause varnish and sludge in the Carburetor. Start by buying a can of carburetor cleaner and mixing a new can of fuel.
1) Dump the old fuel and check replace it with new.
2) Remove the air cleaner.
3) Pump the prime bulb 3 or 4 times, set the choke, spray the insides of the carb with the cleaner and then try and start it . It should sputter and run for a few second but chances are it will take a few sprays to clean the jets

Engine starts easily, but doesnt stay running. removed fuel cap, still the same, pulled off fuel line, its not plugged. With the air cleaner off if I spray in starting fluid it keeps running, but will stop...


sounds like a fuel problem in the gas tank or carb. If bad gas or debris gets into the carb fuel bowl, this will fowl up or clog the jets after you start to run your engine. you need to remove your carb and clean the fuel bowl and jets. use a jet carb cleaner to do this. without knowing what type of engine, make sure all ur jets are clean. use a fine wire to insure they are clean and put te carb back together. also check and clean the fuel valve area of the carb, the fuel line, and the fuel tank. never use last years gas and always run your equipment out of gas before you store it for the winter.

Toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.


The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.
