I was having the same issue with my 128LD string trimmer. I called a local Husqvarna service dealer and they told me the issue was a result of the ethanol in the gas. They suggested I find ethanol-free gas (aka 'Pure Gas') and try it. [ was the best resource I could find for this]

After disposing of my old gas and filling the trimmer with premium grade, ethanol-free gas (with Husqvarna brand oil mix) and applying 3 squirts of carburetor cleaner to the carb, it runs radically better.

I hope that helps you too. I know how frustrating that can be.

Sounds like too much oil, try letting it idle if you can for a while, and try it once it has warmed up. If there is a terrible amount of smoke, probably too much oil.

When i accelerate my 1987 rx7 which is fuel injected starts to sputter and at times shuts off what could be the mal function?

Too many things it could be with a burn car. It is very hard to give a proper diagnostic evaluation without being able to put your hands on the vehicle. You probably still have some sensor or component issues. I recommend you download the FSM at
That will give you the diagnostic procedure.

96 honda accord trouble starting, spit and sputter with no rpm's, give gas and it shuts off

Check your timing belt, Most honda's are interference engines and when the timing belt breaks it causes more serious problems

Why does my 91 ford explorer shut off when i let go of the gas

Might need a good tune up, MAF mass air flow sensor, air filter, fuel filter, there might be a vacume leak. I would have suspected the IAC but you have already replaced that.

My 200 dodge caravan stumbles after it warms up..when you give it gas. it never shuts off on me, just hesitates and spits and sputters when i start giving it gas. and also just giving it normal gas going...

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, all fluids & filters..especially fuel filter??? I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it.
