This issue is caused by the egr valve being stuck open, more than likely. Just remove it and clean the plunger on it. Also clean out the two ports that are in the intake. Check out saturnfans.com for more information. I hope this helps.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

If I understand, you were mowing and it just stopped running. The motor didn't sieze up, it turns over. Okay and you have spark, and you have gas, have you checked the safety switches. there is one under the seat, the blades, the brake pedal when starting. Make sure that these safety switches are working properly. that is the next step I would take.

If you must choke it for it to run it is lean. Have you attempted a carburetor adjustment? Start with "H" and "L" at 1.5 CCW from lightly seated. Then try this:
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – not highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
An air leak where the carburetor bolts to the engine or the intake manifold can also cause this. If an adjustment does not or has not fixed this I suggest you try your friendly neighborhood Stihl shop. Explain everything you have done to a mechanic there. Good saw shops pressure test the crankcase, fuel lines, and intakes. They have test equipment homeowners do not. Explain what you have already done and ask for a repair estimate. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Not all small engine mechanics are created equal... why I recommend Stihl. The odds of finding a good mechanic at a certified Stihl shop are in your favor. If not already using 50:1 fuel mix, please ask the Stihl shop what they recommend. Echo on their site has a statement equivalent to "regardless of what your manual says use 50:1". HTH

Testimonial: "Thanks for the advice. I dont see any adjustment screws for high or low on this carb. Its on a ppf 210- Echo power pruner"
Check the grommet that sits on top of tank where lines from go carb. Grommet may be rotten and crack. Try that. Have you ever replace the carb repair kit? The diaphram may be torn, defoam or have holes in them. Carb kit cost arount $10, but don't mess with the welch plug or screen in carb.
