Hello I just got a gs500e it's a 89 not sure what is wrong with it. I go to start it and it runs fine but when I go to throttle it, it chugs. I took the carburetor out and cleaned it and put it back and it...


Take the carburetor to a QUALIFIED professional, have them clean and set it... install a new (correct) spark plug and a NEW air filter... check the gas tank for rust/corrosion..change the oil and filter.. .. this should cure whats wrong.. Good luck,

How can i fix when the carboretor having a gasoline leak on the outlet?


sounds like the needle and seat are dirty or worn out causing the carburetor to over fill with gasoline.
take the caburetor apart, clean the jets and fuel needle, and put back together. if it still leaks then replace the needle and seat.

My toro lawnmower model 20331 won't start. I replaced the fuel, oil, and spark plug but it still won't start. whats wrong with it?


Hi dana
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and cranking the engine or by pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
Take a picture for later reassembly.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.
Then follow the procedure below:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper and or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor.
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of sharp instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line/s condition...after a while they will degrade and need replacement.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Also a good time to take a picture for later reference for reassembly.
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.

I have honda EU3000is just start for 30 seconds and die I chech filter gas ok spark ok spark plug ok choke ok cant you tel me whats the problem please tankyou


More often than not, you have some type of blockage or obstruction in the carburetor that is responsble for this type of problem. Removing the carburetor and disassembling so you can clean the metering passages is going to be the best solution. There are generaly two circuits on the carb. a high speed circuit and low speed circuit. Make sure all metering passages are clean for the carb. to work efficiently. Also make sure you fuel switch is "ON".

Saw won't start after cutting out spark plug is dry whats the best way to find the problem??


Pour a little fuel mix in the plug hole and try for start--it should pop a few times. If it does, then you have fuel delivery problems. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Check all fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the primer bulb fills with fuel when pumped several times. If it doesn't, either the primer is defective or the carburetor is plugged. If you think the carburetor is in trouble, go to: www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetor theory and troubleshooting. This information applies in general to other brands as well. Hope this helps!

I have a 2005 YZ450F and Fuel Runs out of the Caburetor.


all u got to do is clean the carb and if u find anything broken or worn, replace it. inside the carb theres a little cylinder were the small needle shape piece of metal connected to the floats,it goes up and down in the little cylinder and can possibly have some dirt, sand, grit lodged in there. if u have a manual thats fine, if not, u can be like me and use common sense cause u have to carefully unconnect all the wires connecting to the carb, then get a smaller size screw driver and unscrew the 4 screws connecting the float bowl to the carb, then turn the carb upside down and slowly watch 4 a little white piece of plastic, roughtly a 1 square piece, all it does is help prevent the gas in the bowl from slosthing around, i mean i lost it a million times and it did affect ****. only the best **** talkers and littles boys that think there the **** or RC4 will need that piece. but back to it, just carefully remove the float then unscrew the floats and clean them. if u got a air compresser thats great cause u can blow the air out of the tight spots, u can grab one for 40-50 bucks. then unscrew the cap were the throttle cable enters the carb, pull it out and clean it. make sure to clean out the entire float bowl. real quick u got to unscrew the accelerater pump cover and clean it out,oh and the little brass insert on the left side part of your carb if your looking at it from the back. thats your hot start. follow the hot start cable from the handle to the carb, then unscrew it if it is not already seized, u need to take it out and put a very small amount of grease on it. and remember if u get stuck just think of the situation and use mad common sense and youl be alrite. and since your asking a question that is easly fixed i no u aint a pro so just dont take anything off that i didnt tell u to and youl be just fine

Carb needs cleaning


You actually have 4 carburetors on that bike. Remove the bodywork, the seat, and I think the fuel tank has to come off, then you should see the four carbs. Best bet, take it to a dealer and have them do a tune up, they will clean and adjust the carbs as part of the service.
