    My toro 6.5 self propelled, Dies on me 5 seconds after I start it. I took the filter off and covered the hole of the carb and it stayed running but as soon as I took my finger off it shut off on me.

There are many reasons your car may not start. Check the fuel supply to your engine. If that's okay, check the wiring to and from the starter for a loose connection. If there is a "clicking" noise when you try to start it, you may need a new starter.

Hello, I recently purchased a 1973 Suzuki TS 185. The bike turns over and starts right up very easily. When the bike idles I can rev it and it seems to work very well in first and second gear. However,...


Check for air leaks. You probably need new crank seals and a new intake manifold. Check your reed valves if you have them and do not hold the throttle wide open if it is bogging you will score the cylinder by running it lean.

My 2008 kfx450r wont stay running. when i finally get it started i can pin the throttle wide open for a few seconds but it dies like its not getting fuel please help any info i will take


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Open the petcock, (gas valve), and drain 1/2 cup of gas from the tank. Did the fuel flow freely? Is there any water or trash in the cup?

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower right side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Check the float height. The fuel level in the bowl may be low. Bend the tang (in the center of the float) downward to raise the fuel level. EASY, a little bend goes along way.
Put the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

Weedeater XT 85T wont run


Check to see if your feul line is cracked or it is drawing air . Check your clamps that hold the lines on . One other thing you can check is to see if any bolts are loose that hold the carb on . Best of luck Ed.

Stihl 021 running poorly


Couple of things I would check first. Place a funnel in a can with a paper napkin covering bottom of funnel. Pour the gas from the saw into the funnel. If there is a lot of trash in there, remove the fuel line from tank. Clean the filter with carb. cleaner. Then clean the tank with carb. cleaner. If you still have problem. Replace the Air inlet tube, (clear tube with screw type device close to carb).

Honda 1300c backfire through carb at wide open throttle. I have open up the exhust and rejetted the carb . the bike will run fine up to mid throttle or 65 mph but if you accellerate hard or go to wide open...


Try balancing ans syncronising the carbs.
BALANCE THE CARBS
Turn the throttle screw on the LEFT carb one half turn inward. Now start the engine and get it warmed up. With the engine running, remove the RIGHT spark plug wire. Adjust the idle speed on the left carb to the point where the engine just can't quite stay running and dies. Now put the loose spark plug wire back into place.

Now turn the throttle screw on the RIGHT carb one half turn inward. Restart and rev the engine. Next, remove the LEFT spark plug wire. Adjust the idle speed on the right carb to the point where the engine just can't quite stay running and dies. Now put the loose spark plug wire back into place.

Turn the idle screw on each carb EXACTLY ONE QUARTER turn outward and restart the engine. The engine will be probably be idling very fast. Adjust both the idle screws equally from this point to get to the desired idle speed.

SYNCHRONIZE THE CARBS
Remove the air filter and rubber fittings to allow you to see into the throat of both carbs. You may need a mirror to see inside. You need to be able to see the slides go up and down when you twist the throttle. Now turn the fitting where the cable goes into each carb such that there is just a bit of slack in the cable, 1/16" is plenty. Lock ONE of the cable adjusters down tight. All further adjustments will be made on the other carb.

With the motor turned off twist the throttle very slowly while looking at the slides. Both slides need to begin lifting at the exact same moment. If the slides don't raise at the exact same time then slowly twist the throttle until the locked adjuster slide just barely starts to move. Hold the throttle still and turn the adjuster on the other carb so that the slide on that carb just barely starts to move also. Now recheck the slide movement timing. Do this process until the slides on both carbs begin to raise at the EXACT same moment. Lock down the loose adjuster and re-check the slides.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

My car wont stay running


Does the engine die as soon as you release the key, or does it run for a couple of seconds after you release the key and then die? If it dies as soon as you release the key, try holding the key for a few seconds and see if it will stay running as long as you are holding the key (the starter will make a grinding sound while holding the key but won't hurt anything). If it stays running while you hold the key then dies when you release it, that indicates that the ignition switch is bad.
