If your tiller sat all winter it will need a little work. Drain all of the old fuel out of the tank, install a new spark plug and install a new air filter. Put new fuel in the tank [if you still have old fuel in your portable gas tank dump it into your car or truck so you start fresh for all of your small gas engines.

Now crank it over and it may start. If it doesn't start you need carbeurator cleaner. But an aerosol can of carb cleaner and put two squirts in the air intake [remove the new air filter and leave it off while you get the engine running]. Pull your cord, turninng the engine over and possibly starting it. If it starts, great. If not, let it sit for half hour while that carb. cleaner dissolves some of the gum built up in your carberator over the winter. Two more squirts of carb cleaner and try to start it again.
Generally it will start by now. If it doesn't start your carbeurator must be really dirty. You will have to remove it, and soak it in carb. cleaner for about three hours to clean it out.

sounds like a poss fuel pump failure, get a can of spray starting fluid from a car parts store, spray it in the air intake to the engine, if it starts you need a new fuel pump, if no start still u have a loss of spark and need to have the trouble codes tested, there will be a code for what caused the loss of spark.

Engine stalls while driving. Fuel deprivation?


I am having the exact same problem with my VW Touareg @60,000 miles. Two weeks ago and again today it sputters and stalls shortly after starting. I brought it into the shop and they could not reproduce the problem and said it was fine. Also, they had no ideas when I describes the problem. Anyone know what it going on? I am out of warranty.
