Because you changed carburetor and intake, I would suspect compression. It should be checked and should be between 120 - 145 lbs.

SOURCE: runs full throttle but dies when let off gas, carb

It could be as simple as carb adjustment,if it was a new carb it will be set at base settings, which is just intended for running the machine ready for fine tuning for individual machines, unfortunatly you need a special tool to make an adjustment, part no. 530035560, once you have this tool you need to unscrew the L screw on the carb to richen up the idle mixture.

Ryobi 9600 backpack blower. Starts great. Set to run, continues running. Upon attempt to use throttle, engine dies. Acts like choking out but removed carb cover an choke is no closing.

this sounds strangely like the high speed jet/pathway in the carb is clogged up with something ,

the best way to fix it is dissasmbly and cleaning of carb in solvent , but ive also had some limited sucess in past of using car fuel cleaner (says on bottle "cleans as you drive") too

I hav a 98 Malibu Was idleing funny change the tps didnt fix it now when driveing it acts like it wants to die but when i stop it dies still acts like the idleing is still offf

There are a few things you can check for, 1. the idle air control valve for carbon and the same for the throttle plate having varnish or carbon build-up . Use spray carb. cleaner if any of these are black with carbon.2. A dirty mass air flow sensor will cause stalling and Idle problems . You can get cleaner just for mass air flow sensors ,don't use carb.clean ,or brake clean ! Or you could possibly have a vacuum leak ! check all vacuum hose , you can spray carb cleaner at intake gaskets to check for leaks , but be careful it is flammable !!!

What causes it to flood out and die

Are you running a carb? If so then check to make sure the choke is fully off, also check to make sure that the vent hose from the carb isn't blocked, and also check your gas tank cap. The easy way to do this is to crack it open like you are going to take it off but just enough so that there is no restriction of air into the gas tank. Leave the cap on the tank. Start it and see what she does. Sometimes what acts like flooding out is actually fuel starvation

Also, how old is the gasoline that you are using? If it's over a month old drain it and put in fresh.
Has your bike sat without running for some time? If yes then the carb could be junky and need cleaning.
Have you put any aftermarket parts on it? If you have changed the exhaust pipes, the carb needs to be tuned to the new pipes and if you went to a K & N style airfilter that is going to mean carb tuning as well.

Another thing is to check for vacuum leaks on the back side of the carb to intake manifold, and intake manifold to the heads. Spray bottle with water will cause the engine to react with either a increase in RPM or a decrease in RPM at idle

If anybody has been into the carb then you may have an internal vacuum leak in the carb itself.

Check all the simple stuff first and go from there.

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?

I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

Dies out and when you push on the gas it dies and will not stay started - have to power brake when idleing

if it is carburated it sounds like bad accelerator pump in carb, or plugged fuel filter. if you haven't changed the fuel filter recently i'd start with that.if that was done than you may have a bad carb accelerator pump. needs rebuild or replaced.

It acts like it is flooded, starts with choke off and throttle depressed. runs until carb runs out of gas then dies

Yes, Your carburetor sounds like it needs cleaned. Or you may possibly need to purchase a carb. kit for your trimmer if the cleaning doesn't do any good. When cleaning the carb. use a Den Tek Brush, (teeth cleaning brush), to clean the small ports. Also, check the small screen in carb. Can get clogged easily.

Backfire out of carb!

Remove and clean the carbs. Clean the air filter and install new stock plugs. Re-mount the carbs and then balance and sync them. Now would also be a good time for a compression check. Valves and rings do give problems sometimes but these problems show up first as a lack of power. Since you didn't report a power problem I doubt if valves are the problem.
