SOURCE: my toro started ran for 5 minutes and died...like

It sounds like it is time to replace the ignition module from what you are saying. The motor heats up and the electrical in the module open up.
I would check the spark plug as well and stay away from resistor type plugs.

Good Day.

SOURCE: have a 51970A weed wacker that won't run. need

The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.

The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank, (about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. The plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

(HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: i got a toro 22inch

First, try taking the gas cap off and see if will continue to run. If it does, the vent hole in the cap is clogged. If it does not, then you will most likely need to "rebuild" the carburetor. See if you can get me the engine model number that is posted on the engine.

My toro 51970a trimmer has been leaking gas and flooding for the past few weeks, but I could start it. Today, it is gushing gas from the back when I pull the starter string. How do i fix this?


The carburetor needs to be removed and inspected. The malfunctions possibly indicate the need for a repair kit. I've been unable to locate your exact model, but if it has the 2-Stroke engine (gas/oil mix), then you will at the very least..need a gasket and diaghragm kit installed per inspection. There is the possibility that the carburetor needs a complete rebuild and would require the complete rebuild kit. Remove the gas lines (after draining gas). Remove the carb and inspect the screws and tightness of the screws in the 2 end covers. Are the screws tight? If not tighten them up and reinstall, trying to restart the machine. Post back if needed.

Try getting some fresh gas and 2 cycle oil mix. Mix up a fresh batch and see how that works for you..
When I say fresh I mean from the gas station not from the can in the garage.
Good Day.

Weed eater starts, runs 5 min. then cuts off


The gas cap may be clogged.

The next time you run the trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. If it starts running again, then you know that it's a clogged gas cap.

You may also check the air breather, it may be dirty as well.

Just let me know if you need further assistance.

Hard starting will not restart after warmup


Try this: The next time you run the trimmer, and it begins to die, loosen the gas cap. It should start running again. This means that the gas cap is clogged. Clean the holes out of gas cap, or buy a new one. (If this doesn't help, give a more detailed explanation the next time.)

It dies when you give it gas.but it startes fine


When it starts it is running on the idle jet and when you open the throttle it is being starved of the correct gas/air mixture. Sounds like you have a blocked air filter or fuel restriction. Take off the air filter and try to start it opening the gas slowly. If that doesn't work, clean the fuel tank filter and try again.If that doesn't work, remove the carburettor and clean it with carb cleaner paying attention to any fuel or drilled holes in the body. Blow it off with compressed air and replace it. Ensure fuel tank has clean gas.
