Overhaul the carb. When you have to choke it to run, there is not enough fuel getting in

My volvo has sat up for hey year and a half and I put a new battery in it yesterday and crank it up and its own a little bit like the older all those it wasn't quiet like it normally he is so I'm wondering...

I would add a little Sea Foam product to oil and if you have 1/2 tank of fuel, add 1/2 can of Sea Foam to gas.
If your gas is old the Sea Foam should help.

I have a 2004 arctic cat dvx 400. Recently it got hard to start and backfiring. it will start and runs fine when it does, but if you let it set for any length of time, say 10 minutes or longer after u

Fill it up with premium gas, change the plugs, and run some sea foam through it. It will blow smoke after you add the sea foam and then clear up. That helps keep the varnish out of the carb (and unstick the choke etc.) and the high test gas will make it a lot easier to start and keep the plugs from fouling out as often. Also change/clean the air filter. This will give you optimal conditions for fuel air mixture and combustion. If you still have problems, go from there.

I run my fuel rich (93+) with a quarter bottle of 104 octane boost. only because if today's new fuel sits too long it basically turns into sugar. here a few days ago i put a little more than a quarter...

run a few more tanks full of fuel through it and it may clear as the foam does its job.
Octane boost doesnt make for rich fuel, just higher octane.
To make the bike rich you need to adjust mixture screws or change jets, but making it rich will make it go slower, a bit like riding withthe choke on

Make sure all the other service items are done, plugs, aircleaner, oil, valve clearances

I have a coleman powermate premium plus 6250 generator,put in new plug ,new filter ,changed oil,cleaned the carb,put in new gas. runs ok at half choke but when go full choke it starts backfiring and runs...

if you are running the engine at full CHOKE, then it is flooding the engine, but if you meant off full choke, then the carb is still stopped up. Try soaking in carb cleaner overnight after removing jet & all rubber goods. HOPE THIS HELPS.

My 13 hp honda power washer has a miss when it's not under a load. Is it a fuel or spark problem ?

Most likely fuel / plug. Easy to check. While running unloaded and miss-firing, try applying the choke just a little to increase fuel mixture (make run slightly rich), if clears may need carb kit. If it gets worse with slight choke running rich or plug faulty. Before you change parts try using premium fuel. If runs better problem solved.

Hi 6000 watt generator sat for 6 months with fuel shutoff. now will only run with choke on. thanks, Glenn

Hi, sounds like derty fuel, you will need to check and clean air and fuel filters; also wash your carbretta out with lean fuel. Drain fuel tank and replace with fresh fuel.

Hard start wont run more than a few minutes

sounds like the air bypass valve may be stuck ,try pulling off a small vaccum line. the valve is used instead of a choke plate. when engine is cold it bleeds air around the throttle plate raising the idle.
