I would dump the old gas and put new gas in and see if it will start then. If not you can remove the carb and if you are careful disassemble it without damaging the gaskets spray it with carb cleaner and reassemble it and put it back on. You can also rebuild the carb if the second option doesn't work. Hope this helps.

There really isn't any carb adjustments on the newer lawn mowers anymore. If your machine isn't running properly it is usually due to a dirty carb, dirty coil contacts, old gas or a bad spark plug

My yamaha pw 80 won't kickstart and can you tell me why gas is coming out were the spark plug goes when i try kickstart?

I'm assuming you mean gas comes out the spark plug hole with the plug removed??? You probably have a gummed up carburator, due to old gas or dirt. Make sure your air filter is clean first, and then get your carburator thoroughly cleaned. If your float is sticking, or the float needle is dirty or worn out, it will keep dumping fuel to the engine.

My trimmer will start but will not stay running? Fuel mix is correct, I can adjust the throttle screw to keep it running but it still stalls out after it gets running. what else can I do to repair this...

You may have a fouled carburator. Also, check the spark plug for signs of fouling (Black and oily). The plug should look grey and have a somewhat dry appearance. Try using a carburator cleaner first, and if that doesn;t do it you'll need to overhaul the carburator itself.

One plug is constantly fouling

If you're running the correct spark plug, you need to determine what is fouling the plug. Is it gas fouling or oil fouling? If it's gas fouling, what type of fuel delivery system is on the bike, carburator or fuel injection? If it's oil fouling, there could be a broken ring in that cylinder or a bad valve guide or seal.

Truck starts, but has a hard time staying running. smells like gas under hood and smokes. could my carburetor be bad?

I wouldn't say that the carburator is bad, but it may have some defective components in it, like a sticking float or leaking gasket. Can you see any fuel leaking in or around the carb? You can purchase a carburator rebuild kit at most autoparts stores. You must have the right number for the carb. There is usually a metal tag attached under one of the bolts that hold the carb to the throttle body that will have the number on it and sometimes it is stamped on the carburator body. Before you dig into the carburator, however, check for more mundane causes, like a faulty or fouled spark plug. Hope this helped and best wishes.
