First check for loose bolts, broken gaskets and spacers, then check to see that the choke is operating correctly, if all this checks out, the issue is going to be a bad jet in the carb, try cleaning the carb by soaking it in chemclean or other part soak cleaning solution, just soak the entire carb for about 30 min to an hour and then blow it out and off with compressed air

Starts with choke on, dies when choke is moved to run.


carburetor needs cleaning. lots of youtube videos to show you how. The best way to avoid this happening again is to close the valve in the gas feed line going to the carburetor ( add one if you do not have one) Then run the carburetor bowl out of gas while spraying water ! Using a small engine once and then letting it sit for several months is the perfect way to have dried up gas residue plug up the tiny ports in a carburetor.

Push down on gas pedal bogging then goes


It could possibly be that there is a wore spot on your throttle position sensor (TPS). It basically is connected to the cable running to the gas pedal and tells the computer how much you're pushing down on the pedal.

If you find that it's bogging down more and more often (like when you need more power climbing hills and never really gets going), it could be that your catalytic converter is clogged, but this will eventually throw some check engine lights.

My Husqvarna 455 starts great and sounds great without pressure but when you put the saw under pressure of cutting it bogs down and runs up and down. I am not sure the problem. I have changed spark plug,...


If you haven't done so already I would run some spray carb cleaner through it. If the idle speed is okay then I would adjust high and low screws going very slowly about 1/16 of a turn at a time and run engine up and down after each adjustment. I would remove the muffler and clean the spark arresstor screen to get all the carbon deposits out of it.Carb. cleaner and a medium stiff wire brush work well for this. I would also check the vent in the gas cap to make sure it is open. I also use a product called sea foam in all my engines.For my chain saws I mix 5-6 ounces with 2 1/4 gallon of gas.It really does a good job of keeping everything internally clean. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

I have a Coleman generator 1850 pulse and it runs ok for a little


Gravity feed fuel systems are the most simple and reliable way to deliver fuel to the engine, however suffer from a couple of problems.. As the engine heats up fuel tends to be pushed out of the carb back into the fuel tank and if the vent in the gas cap is not working properly fuel lock (or a slight vacuum in the tank) will prevent fuel from entering the carb. There should be a plastic block or manafold seperating the carb from the engine to keep the carb from overheating. Some engines have this block bolted to the engine, then the carb bolted to block., others have two bolts thru the carb and block to engine. In ether case make sure parts are held tightly together so no vacuum leaks thru gaskets.. One should make sure that the gas cap is venting. Sometimes fuel sloshing in the tank will clog the vent-hole in the cap. Try running the generator with the cap loose to see if this helps.. Replace fuel cap as needed if vent is clogged. Good luck with your generator.

Engine bogs down when speed is increased.


Ok I have r Royobi Tiller (30CC Gas) And last year it ran fine after rebuilding the Carb. This year it was "hard starts" Idles fine, (Tiny whisps of blue smoke in exhaust with correct ratio) Even seems to run better with the choke "on" but still...at idle only. as soon as I touch the throttle...its bogs down in tune with how much gas I give it. Little throttle? Little bog down, Little more throttle? Almost stalls, a normal throttle rev? it stalls dead! Then starts right back up again in 1 pull and idles fine again!? WTF? So after cleaning a clean carb again, (twice) and seeing no change I thought I'd go look at the original diaphragm and compare it with the rebuild kit diaphragm (which is the one in the carb.) And guess what? The replacement has a larger rivet by a factor of "2". So basically it was flooding the carb, I bent the needle tang down, better but no cigar. But I could rev it half way now. A second disassemble to bend it yet a bit further and Vrooom vroom vrooom ****! So check your needle valve even though you think its 100%. (Especially if you rebuilt the carb with a kit!)

Truck bogs down when giving it the gas


Hi first check for any loose hoses or wires but if everything looks ok then check the idle speed control this may have to do something with the idling problem

Bogging down may indicate debris or old gas in the carb. Try doing a carb cleaning, and add a small amount of Seafoam gas additive to your gas.
