Take the carb. apart and blow thru all the little passaged w/ carb cleaner you probably have a passage pluged with yuck. Make sure you use new gas when you try to start it again.

What is wrong if it will not idle


It would help to have engine codes but it sounds like leaking injectors hard to start because any time the key is on gas is just running into the engine. No idle to much gas. Oil level high because of gas in oil going past rings could blow oil pan off. High speed fine. replace injector or injectors. Look down throttle body with key on and see if gas is leaking out. If this help someone please rate it

Do I mix the gas with 2 cycle oil for the homelite mighty lie 26vt gas grass trimmer and what is ratio I need?


Your MightyLite trimmer requires a 50:1 fuel mix. Use a high quality 2 cycle oil that is made for lawn equipment. Do not use outboard boat oil...it will cause your trimmer to run too hot. If you use the mix that has fuel stabilizer in it, then the bottle will be 3.2 ounces. Use one 3.2 ounce per gallon of gasoline.
Good luck!

Have a homelite grass trimmer crank ok run ok will trim grass for about 2 minutes then stop if you crank it and run for few seconds and the give it the gas it will not take gas just stop have replaced both...


Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Homelite 26vt Mighty Lite carb settings


Setting up the carb right on a trimmer is like setting one up on an RC gas operated car. It takes someone with a good year,and a lot of experience doing it. If youre new at it,youre not just going to be able to get it tuned,well you could,if you want to spend a few hours. Just take it to someone who does it,they wont charge you much and it will save you a lot of aggrevation.

I have a Homelite 26vt Mighty Lite that will only start when I dump gas straight in the carburetor after it uses that gas it will not start


you have 1 of 3 things wrong
1 you have pluged jets
2 you have a pluged fuel filter
3 you have a stuck float
4 fuel line is crimped

1 2 3 4 thats all it can be
preasurise the fuel tank by blowing into it when almost empty
this will as times clear jets
if fuel line kinked un twist it
best bet buy a rebuild kit for the carb and enjoy some time with a screw driver

Old gas turns to varnish which can cause the valves to seize in the valve guide,bend push rods or even bend the valves themselves.NEVER put old gas in an internal combustion engine.
