Question about Honda 25cc 4-cycle Mini Tiller

1 Answer

There is oil on the spark plug in my new honda mini tiller (less than a month old). What might have caused this, and how do I fix it? Tiller won't start

It had problems starting after just a few days, but now it will almost never start, and when it does, it won't run at idle speed and eventually cuts out at full power.

Id say if its that new I would return it .Otherwise was it ever stored upside down or was it laying on its side
Its unlikely its a air filter issue with that low of use but you may want to check there to see if the oil is being siphoned up thru the breather line in the air cleaner area. lf the engine had been ran dry initially then there could have been damage done to the cylinder walls and the oil could be passing what is left to the piston rings,if this is the cause the unit would need to be overhauled .

SOURCE: I have a Honda mini tiller FG-100. Haven't used

You need to check your engine oil on a very level surface.

Its all too easy to over fill these engines with oil and the results can spell disaster if not rectified. On a level surface, with the machine level (not tipped forward) the oil should just be reaching the top of the threads for the bung. Any more than that and you have to much in.

This symptom can also be caused of incorrect storage .ie the machine being left on its side allowing oil to fill the exhaust box.

Check your oil level first then run the machine until the left over oil in the exhaust box has been burnt off. I would then advise either replacing the spark plug with a new one or cleaning your existing one and checking / replacing your air filter

Runs and starts great but won't idle


Hi, Emmett and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Leaking accelerator pump.
4. Loose low-speed jet.
5. Plugged low-speed jet.
6. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
7. Enrichner valve is not seated or leaking.

After awhile these idle screws don't have a lot of effect, the throttle body & injectors are also probably dirty. The 1.5 turns out from a soft seat is a starting point. Go another 1 to 1.5 turns out to find the sweet spot. Pour a can of Seafoam in with about 1/2 tank of gasoline. That will help clean the injectors & combustion chambers. Clean the throttle body with throttle body cleaner, make sure there is no carbon around the edges of the butterfly and where it seats.
The knocking on starts is most likely from worn bearings. It will knock until oil pressure builds up & is circulating through the journals. I hope this helps.

Hi Mrcherry99, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service department and inquire about any possible quick fix. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if possible, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.
