My 1984 Rabbit Convertible runs great, but has a surge in idling and after driving for a short while when going to stop, stalls out?


you are right it is a air leak but either at the intake gasket or tb gasket seeing you replaced the hoses already. spray some carb cleaner around those areas while running and see if idle changes this will pin point the area of trouble. make sure you dont have any spark plug wires arcing out cause this could ignite the carb cleaner.

My 5 hp craftsman tiller won't stay running changed gas sprayed carb new plug started it ran ok next day starts won't stay running dies fast like no fuel but can smell gas.


when it dies see if it will restart using a shot of starting spray in the air cleaner if it starts or sputters, sounds as if you have a plugged up carb you will need to dissasemble and soak in white vinegar for a few hours to un clogg (carefull with any gaskets)
if still nothing even with spray then you have a weak/defective coil or dammaged spark plug (start with plug replacement)

first see if the fuel pump is working remove the hose from the carb and crank it over if fuel sprays out it works the see if you have power to the solenoid to the bottom of the carb if so remove the solenoid and put power to the wire and a ground if it is stuck carb cleaner can free it up if it moves remove the bowl from the carb and see if fuel is getting inside the carb a bad needle vale would stop it from getting threw

check all the vacuum lines, and the PCV valve, get a can of carb cleaner, and while the motor is running, spray short bursts of the carb cleaner all around where vacuum lines are located, if the motor rev's up thats where your leak is going to be

Won't stay running


The carbeurator needs to be cleaned and probably rebuilt. Start with a spray carb cleaner by putting 3 or 4 shots in the carb. Run it for a minute then let it sit for two hours and run it again.

Mower will not stay running unless primer button continuouly pushed. Gas seems to not be independently flowing, requires manual priming to stay running. As soon as primer gas used, will stop running.


The tube in the bottom of the carb. is probably clogged. Remove the carb, and bowl and try spraying WD-40 through the tube, it should spray into the venturi if it doesn't try using a tip cleaner to unclog the tube.
