    My Toro starts, too, and then stops in a few seconds. I cleaned the air filter and it didn't help. I checked the hose from the gas tank to the carb and did not find any leaks. The dealer is so busy it would be 4 weeks before he could get to it. So --------

I had the same problem. I took off the carb bowl and found debris in there. Be sure to drain the gas out of mower first. I cleaned the carb and surrounding area w/ carb cleaner. Make sure the nut on the bottom has its holes cleaned out. I also replaced the washer on the bottom. While I was at it, I changed the spark plug and oil. It runs like new now.

You have a problem in the fuel system. First start by checking fuel lines,filter,vacum fuel pump.If this checks out,remove carb. and clean. Check for water and trash in bowl of carb. or tank. This sould solve your problem.

How to change the drive belt on a Toro 20016 SP Mower


The Toro 20016 mower is a front wheel drive mower and fairly simple to change the belt on. Start by disconnecting the spark plug to prevent start ups while working on the machine.

Remove the blade and adapter. The adapter includes the pulley for the belt.
two screws under the mower, with 3/8 heads hold the black cover over the belt. remove the cover and now you will see the transmission
The transmission, depending on the year of your machine will have a guard holding the belt on. Bend or remove the guard to remove the belt. Install you belt in reverse order.

You can get parts and special tools like the blade stop at a store like www.arcolawn.com

After priming starts, runs and stops


If you over fill the oil your mower will not start until you remove excess oil. This should be checked first, This is a much easier fix.

Mower wont start


You will need to replace an aluminum "key" in the flywheel. Whenever you hit something, the key is designed to shear so you don't break something major.

Toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.


The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

Toro 20016 engine surges up and down - then stalls


You have carburetor problems. Chances are the diaphragm needs to be changed and the carb. needs a good cleaning. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, let me know.
