I had to run full chock to get it back to the house before it shut down, what cuase this?


I'm sure you have dirt in your carb. If you know how to take the carb apart......You need to get a can of carb cleaner and carb kit. Take the carb apart and spray every hole and nook a crany you can see. Put the new kit in the carb and you should be ready to go!! This has happened to several times.

I'd like to get step to step instructions on how to clean the throttle body in my 2010 Jeep Patriot


  1. Purchase "02 Sensor Safe" throttle body cleaner spray;
  2. Drive the vehicle a few miles, bringing it to full operating temperature, then park it in your driveway with the engine still running;
  3. Gain access to the throttle body, and hold your thumb on the butterfly linkage so that you can open the throttle butterfly when the engine begins to load;
  4. Begin by spraying throttle body cleaner spray on all linkages around the throttle body. If the engine begins to bog because it is aspirating throttle body cleaner, quickly open the throttle butterfly to keep the engine running.
  5. Once you have cleaned all around the throttle body, spray cleaner DIRECTLY INTO THE THROTTLE BODY, opening the throttle sufficiently to keep the engine running. It will run rough during this process but try not to let the engine stall.
  6. If the engine stalls, restart it, and continue cleaning the throttle throat until you see clean metal.
  7. Pour some fuel system cleaner into the gas tank and drive the car a little more before parking it. Try to find an excuse to accelerate hard, WIDE OPEN THROTTLE momentarily if safely possible (as when accelerating to merge into traffic on a highway).
  8. Drive back home.
  9. Done.

I have a presser washer Coleman power mate motor. The intake value was stuck. I pulled the head and cleaned the old gas off that had stuck the value open. It runs now but only on half chock. It runs great...


Sounds like the carb needs to be adjusted by someone that knows how to repair engines. Note: if the carb is set too lean, it will damage the engine.

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run


Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

Echo pb500 only runs with choke open


I'm not to sure about the question. But you say it runs with the chock open. Your engine will only run with the chock open. Can you clarify?

My MAC 3227 trimmer will start an only run for a short time (less than a minute). It needs for the chock to be in the half chock position to start. If I move the chock to non-chock it stops. If I...


remove the carburator.. It's plugged.
disassemble and soak the body in fresh gasoline for about 10 mins.
Blow out all the ports with small engine carb cleaner and reassemble.
Drain the gas tank , clean it and refill with fresh gas mixture
It doesn't take much to clog those little carbs

Runs only on half chocked


Remove the air intake and spray the carb down with carb cleaner. Buy new gas/mix. Put 1 oz of Sea Foam" into one gallon of the mix. Run two or more tanks of fuel and it should straighten out.
