Question about Garden

1 Answer

Runs good without air filter, but badly with air filter. New air filter no help. The engine was partially submerged in hurrican Ike and a new carburator was just installed. With air filter in it runs very rich and smokey, no power and won't go to hi speed.

    Still sounds like a restricted air filter. Factory filter? Installed correctly?

Hello

Check the Exhaust Port and Muffler.
>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File for Doing a Diagnostic on the Engine for this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**Remove the Muffler and Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Clear.
>>If it is, then Try to Start the engine with the Muffler Off.
>>If it Starts and Runs Properly, then Clean the Spark Arrestor Screen in the Muffler or Replace the Muffler if Required.
If the Exhaust Port and Muffler are Clear, then
Check the Carburetors Metering Needle Valve.
If the Metering Valve Plunger (on the Carburetor Metering Jet Diaphram) is Set too Close to the Needle Valve Actuator Arm, then you will have this Problem.
I Require the OEM and Model Numbers Off the Carburetor to be of Better Assistance to you.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

If your vehicle has one, and I think it does, check your EGR system. If the egr valve is full of carbon, it can be partially open, creating a vacuum leak. If the egr valve solenoid is bad, it could be opening the valve at the wrong time, also creating a vacuum leak. Unplug the egr vacuum hose, plug the open end of the hose and start it and see what it does. A picture of the egr is below.

My freezer not getting cold. it is about 10 yrs old and after Hurricane Ike it stop freezing.


if the fan run and does not freeze, possible compressor or compressor start kit. Start kits that a beating in stormy weather. Start kits consist of a relay, capicator and overload sensor. These 3 parts can be ordered seperately or a generic start kit with all the of these made in one. if the compressor is bad on a 10 year old freezer you might want to look at a new freezer

Having hard time with new poulon 18" chainsaw starting.


Since you have good spark and good gas the only things left to check are the air filter and the carbeurator. If the air filter is dirty, replace it. While you are at the auto parts store also pick up a can of a gasoline additive called seafoam which will keep your carb. clean. Finally get a can of spray carb. cleaner and put a couple short squirts directly into the air intake which is right there when you remove the air filter.

Moldy taste from Whirlpool side by side


The problem can still be in your lines, or in the dispenser itself. If you run hot water with a little bit of vinegar in the lines and let it sit for about 30 minutes and then flush the whole system this should take care of your problem
