SOURCE: Backfire - Husqvarna YTH20K46

I find my 2148 runs much happier on the medium grade shell than on the cheaper gas. I did have a nasty POW, which resulted in bent pushrods, or perhaps the bent pushrods caused the POW. After replacing the pushrods, and adjusting same, the backfiring stopped altogether. knock on wood. The 21 is a B&S engine which has a propensity to the bent pushrods. Fortunately for me, my neighbor is a wiz at those fine adjustments.

SOURCE: my lt1000 turns over and

The engine should be an OHV type. You could try adjusting the valves under the OHV cover. Kinda like the valve lash on cars. When the valves are at rest you can set each one to about .004 with a feeler guage. You can look on youtube for a video one adjusting lawnmower engine valves. Seeing it is easier to understand then reading it.

I hope that this helps you get it fixed.

Why does my 318 lawn mower back fires


Charlene: According to https://www.briggsandstratton.com/us/en/support/faqs/engine-backfire-afterfire " What causes a small engine backfire & how do I fix it? Backfire typically occurs when the engine is decelerated rapidly.

Common Causes of Backfire:

  • Lowering engine speed too fast
  • Gasoline, which contains higher blends of alcohol
  • Carburetor adjustment set too lean
  • Muffler construction can induce backfire
  • Higher than normal engine temperatures
  • Some carburetors can induce backfire due to the sensitivity of internal transitional passages
    (This condition cannot be corrected).

Possible Fixes for Backfiring:

  • Lower engine speed slowly
  • Follow small engine fuel recommendations and/or switch to brands with low or no alcohol
  • Adjust carburetor for optimum performance
  • Inquire with equipment manufacturer about increasing air volume to decrease engine temperature"
Charlene: I hope that helps! :)

Hi I'm new to this site , I have been asked to close Q I have asked already but don't know how on my iPhone to close then please help


There are two kinds of backfires, one is produced from the engine air intake and the other is produced from the tail pipe of the exhaust system. The cause for a backfire condition can vary depending on the malfunction of a particular system. Some backfires can be extreme enough to cause damage to related components. Anytime a backfire is observed immediately diagnose and repair as needed. If the engine is running rough it can produce a backfire. A backfire occurs when there is an imbalance in the air to fuel ratio required for your vehicle to operate properly. If the fuel mixture is too lean (not enough fuel) you may have a backfire in the intake manifold gasket, or too rich (too much fuel) you may get a backfire out of the exhaust system. It is important to observe the location of the backfire.
