Or try carb cleaner from the auto parts store

SOURCE: Self-Propelled Model Starts, then dies after about 15 seconds

I posted same problem as this couple days ago. Took mower to shop. The governor spring (located just under the air filter) had come off. So glad it was something so minor!

SOURCE: I have a cub cadet 1550, Blew fuse and wont disengage from gear

You have a bad wire which rubbed on the plastic housing to the engine block near the starter mower which causes a short and blows the fuse. I have the same tractor and this happened to mine also. The wire is red.

After running, when shut down for just a few minutes, won't start. Has to sit and get cold in ordrer to start.

Check for spark when this happens. What I suspect is a failing ignition coil due thermal breakdown. I have had mowers run an hour or so to quit firing after taking a short nature break.

Honda izy self propelled auto choke,the problem is the auto choke,it takes sometimes about five minutes to switch of,then when i stop the machine and start it again..say after about five minutes choke...

This is controlled by a thermostat next to muffler that is connected to choke. These thermostats often fail. They are not that hard to replace though. I never liked the design of these from the start. Should be easy fix though. Good luck.

Hello i have a Honda izy self propelled it is 3

sounds like your petrol filler cap hole is blocked , try and drill a hole in the cap or loosen the cap slightly , and change the spark plug , the izy can go through plugs regularly, you could try a good wire brushing and set the gap

good luck

New honda hrr auto choke hard to start

sounds like it may need the carb clening out, but it could be the auto choke not closing when cold. there was an issue with some of the early auto chokes on the gcv135/160 engines so check to see if the choke flap is in the closed position when starting from cold, run the engine for approx 10-15 minutes and see if the choke flap has opened fully.leave it to go cold and see if the choke flap has returned to the closed position

Cold start problems with 1987 honda accord

I have an 87 accord manual carbureted with 200k miles on it and mine has done that ever since I got it. I've owned it for about four years now and the previous owner told me it happens. I have no idea what it means but the only problem I've ever had was when the alternator went out last summer (which I doubt is related but had similar symptoms).

Not a solution, more just commiseration.
