First, you will need to check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending on the use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Gas Trimmer will not stay started


Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

JUST REPLACED CARB ON MY 1992 CHEVY SILVERADO WITH A 4.3 LITER. NOW IT STARTS AND RUNS FINE UNTIL IT WARMS UP THEN DIES AND WONT START FOR 30 MIN


How many rpm's is it running at when you first start it up and it is running on the choke? Does it gradually start to idle back and then start to die r does it do it all of a sudden and dies?

When running with the choke on, it is on the high idle circuit of the carb, as it warms up the idle should slow down and then idle in the 800 rpm range in Park, 650 in Drive. This will be the low idle circuit range. This transition inside the carb will cover an idle air bleed hole in the venturi of the carb and lean out the mixture. If you notice that the carb smells gassy and black rich unburnt gases are coming from the tailpipe, the problem is located within the carb and requires a carb tech to do a rebuild of the carb. You could try a good carb cleaner like Lucas by putting it into the gas tank, in case you just got a bad tank of gas, but that is just a bandaid for a more deeply rooted problem. Get the carb rebuilt?

Snowblower only runs on full choke


try adding a little (few ounces) of sea foam to the gas tank and then running it for an hour or so.
if this doesn't cure it, you may need to take the carburetor apart and clean it.
your symptoms are typical of dirty jets (not enough fuel/ too much air)

Johnson 4hp starts first pull runs 5 minutes dies will then only run with choke on


You may have left the fuel vent closed. If working, put a clear plastic fuel line between the fuel pump and the carb. Look for bubbles indicating an air leak between the tank and the carb.

On a rear occasion you can have some varnish flakes floating round the fuel bowl. But these tend to cause random problems than the "about 5 min" problems you are having.

Crafsman 25cc weedwacker won't stay running


You probably have a bad hose or a bad hose connection that is sucking mostly air instead of delivering full fuel to the carburetor!

Saw starts and runs for a few seconds (while warm) then dies like starved for fuel. Will restart with choke, but does same thing again. Sometimes it will run for a few seconds longer at full throttle, but...


Air filter clean?
Air filter port set for summer or winter ?
Check the fuel filter inside the tank to ensure that it is not dirty or hasn't fallen off.

1998 honda shadow will not start


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a few possibilities you may want to check/explore:
  • stale gasoline;
  • clogged fuel filter (inside the tank above the fuel shutoff valve;
  • clogged, bocked, varnished, gummed carbs, jets, air pin holes;
  • stuffed air filter/box;
  • vacuum leak (rubber coupling, manifold side);
  • air leak (airbox base assembly seated/fitted on the carbs.
Basically, a general cleanup of the fuel lines, tank and the carbs. Sitting for some time tends to leave varnish like coating on most parts.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Craftsman gas leafblower


Hey Karl,

To me this sounds like its getting too much fuel after it has been warmed up so either there is too much gas flow to the unit or there is not enough. check your primer bulb once this happens if there is a full bulb when it shuts down chances are its getting too much gas, if its empty then its not getting enough and your fuel filter could be starting to plug up or is not in the tank properly.
