It usually wont idle very well when it's cold, Goto #1 on the choke give the rope a couple of "quick" tugs, and then move it to #2 Give it one or 2 more tugs with a little throttle, now it should be running witha little throttle, let it run like that for a minute then move it to #3 kinda still pumping the throttle a little and it should take off fine. If this is the 4 stroke, mine did the same thing until it was broke in good. (About 4-5 uses), now I have to say its more reliable than any 2-stroke I've owned and I use it commercially. 1st or 2nd pull everytime and is ready as soon as it fires! Hope this helps!

Looses power when trying to move forward new spark plug shows good spark cleaned air filter right way. New premium gas oil tank filled. Starts and idles fine just will not run when trying to go.

Hi Paul:
I'd be suspicious of a fuel restriction. May I suggest flushing the carb (there should be a drain screw on the bottom) and see if you can find a fuel filter that needs cleaning or replacing. It may be that a high speed jet in the carb is obstructed. if flushing it did not help, try removing it and use compressed air to gently blow through the orifices (fancy word for holes).
Hope this helps.

My truck died a few nights ago. Replaced the spark plugs, cleaned fuel filter, and now it starts up but then dies right away. It also sounds like there's air getting into the pump somehow. What...

Have you checked the rate of fuel flow from your fuel pump to see if the issue is fuel delivery?

Can you keep the vehicle running by working the gas/throttle pedal?
If you can, then it's not a fuel pump issue, but may be an idle control valve issue.

thats what it sounds like, a bad or clogged up fuel filter. if it bogs down when giving it gas, or going up a hill. its probably the fuel filter not letting enough fuel to engine. that is why it stalls at a stop. if this helps but not fully. check or clean idle air control motor. this is what maintains proper idle of vehicle. have a good day !!

Replaced fuel filter on 2005 F250 diesel. Forgot to put fuel in filter and tried to start truck. Now can't get it started due to air. have been working on it for 2 days now. Got it started twice today but...

Let it crank, the air will pass through the system and it will run. Next time install the filters but the top one leave it cracked a bit and keep your socket on itturn the key to the run position and go back to the filter, when the bubbles stop coming out and its mostly diesel tighten it down. truck will start right away. Makes a bit of a mess but floor drywill soak it right up and brake clean will clean it right off the top of the engine.

I own a 1999 Saturn. I can start it and drive maybe a mile or two and if I come to a stop it will die on me. I does not spit and sputter it is almost as if someone has turned off the key. I can not start...

sounds like your fuel pump is going out cuase not getting fuel and dies if filter was replaced how long ago fuel filter replaced becuase if you have got bad gas could have clogged fuel filter again with debris try this turn the key to start position but dont start it and see if you can hear the fuel pump and if it is weak hope this helps turn key off then on wait till fuel pump kicks off then do it again then try start it if starts right away is a weak fuel pump cuase manually priming it

Son-in-law did a tune up. Plugs, plug wires,

Do a quick check. Run a wire passed everything from the battery positive terminal to the power connector on the pump, or if you cant get to the pump directly then the first connection you can make to the pump's power supply wire. If she fires up then its a bad fuse, faulty relay or something electronic not putting the power through. If she still refuses to fire it could be the fuel filter filter (to lean), leaking fuel regulator or leaking injectors (too rich). the regulator has a vacuum line on it. If there is a leak in the regulator then fuel vapour is carried by the vacuum line and enriches the air in the intake manifold. The fuel pump has to deliver about 40 - 50 pounds of pressure to the fuel line and has to keep about 90% of that pressure for about 5 minutes after it has been switched off. Dropping pressure indicates poor valves on the pump or leaking injectors. It is not enough that the pump is effective the fuel line should be capable of filling a pint pot in about 15 seconds. If the pump has good pressure (and retention when off) but poor flow then the filter is clogged (this will also kill the pump eventually). As a final check make sure the idle air control valve on the throttle body is clean and functioning as it should.

Lawnmower starts but won't continue to run

if you are getting no fuel to the plug you either have a stuck float, plugged fuel line or filter. does the gas reach the carb bowl? does the mower have a fuel pump? if so the diaphram might be bad.
