Bad gas. Drain gas and refill with fresh gas with Stabil. Old oil. Drain oil fill with fresh 30w oil, 16-18oz. Clean air filter and spark plug.. Relpace air filter if dirty. Saving $$$ on this simple tune up is not intelligent.

My huskee 21 173CC OHV powermore push mower starts then stops. What could be wrong? I changed the spark plug and the air filter.

Cindy, try running with gas cap off , if it runs OK then the caps vent hole is plugged, either try and clean vent hole or replace cap. It could also be a dirty carburetor which would need torn down and cleaned/rebuilt. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Why it stops after 2 seconds?

Plugged fuel filter, fuel diaphagm not working (carb needs to be rebuilt). Alcohol in fuel causes corrosion inside the carb so if your carb is ruined and you purchase another mower use non alcohol blends if you can get them or use an additive to stabilize and capture the alcohol in the fuel.

I have a huskee 173cc autochoke ex start. It shuts off after a few seconds. I changed gas filter gas and oil and spark plug. Problem persists. What can I do??

Maybe the low oil level switch is bad. Disconnect the wire that goes to the low oil switch which is on the block of the engine and see if it runs longer. Make sure the oil level is to the full mark first.

Where does the throttle linkage spring attach on each end on a Yardworks 173cc 21" (Model# 11A-A2M7515)? I was mowing the lawn and pushing the mower close to a tree and a branch popped off the spring.

there is a little tab behind the air filter but facing forward. it is a funny shape. hook the spring end over this tab and you should be good to go

I was asked tolook at a 3.5HP BS for a mate, model # 091212, type 1025 E1. It had been preety well neglected, the fuel was either really old or someone had put two stroke in it! Stripped the carby and...

Check the fuel supply hose. It sounds like you are running out of fuel. The initial startup being OK, would indicate the fuel bowl is full then when that dries up , the engine stops. I assume by BS, you mean Briggs and Stratton motor ? They are usually gravity fed. If the fuel supply hose from the tank is kinked or blocked at the entry point in the tank, it may not be allowing enough fuel to refil the fuel chamber on the motor.

Connecting rod

Not sure if they are trying it on, i can tell you there are two ways the con rod can break, one is the engine over speeding ( this should be set from the factory assuming it has not been tampered with ) the second reason is the engine has been run short of oil the big end then seizes which in turn breaks the rod, either way the dealer should examine the engine and give a valid reason as to why the engine has failed prematurley, not just say its toast.

Yardworks 173cc bs engine will start, run for 2-3 seconds then stop. fuel problem or a timing problem?

If it starts then it's not a timing problem. Sounds like the most common problem I have and that it that the carb needs to be disassembled and get a thorough cleaning with carb cleaner. Not a hard task, but better left to a pro if you're not so inclined. Here is a basic video that may help you if you want to tackle it yourself. Just be very aware of all the linkage and springs when you disassemble it. Taking digital photos is what I recommend. Click the link to watch the video and best of luck to you. ~James
