Either the gas mixture is not quite right or the gas cap is slightly clogged.

If you don't have enough oil in the gas, this may cause it to overheat.

The next time you run the chainsaw and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. If it starts running again, then you know that it's a clogged gas cap.

You may also check the air breather, it may be dirty as well.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

I have a new Tork 1102 timer 240V. It works dial rotates clicks on and off but loses four hours in a 24 hour period what is wrong.

The timer motor is syncronous and meant to run on 208-277 Volt, 60 cycles per second. It appears that you have 50 cycle current running it, which would result in a 4 hour loss in every 24 hour period. There is no adjustment for this.

Excessive fuel consumption & Assumed overheating

Is the car an automatic, if so quickly check the transmission fluid levels and make sure they are where they should be. Is the car actually overheating or is it that it is just reporting overheating. I confess I never heard of a system that would respond to overheating by burning yet more fuel.....seems all wrong. If the car is overheating it could be because the car is actually burning more fuel. The fuel air mix is always enriched when the engine is cold at time of starting. Very quickly as the engine and the catalytic converter warm up the fuel is leaned out to normal running mix. Two further sensors to check are the air intake temperature sensor on the air intake pipe and the lambda sensor on the exhaust manifold. Either of these if faulty could allow the car to keep the fuel mix rich as the system still considers the car to be in cold start mode.

try the main fan. Then check strip fuse for the Aux fans. Then check A/C charge or the sensor that checks it because that turns on the low speed on the Aux fan. Then check the Engine temp sensor as that controls the high speed Aux fan control.
Also a stuck open thermostat will cause overheat.

1997 cherokee sport will not start after overheating

If a car dies from overheating its not good. Quick check; pull the oil stick and see if the oil seems milky. Mess with it enough it will start. More than likely it has a blowed head gasket. You will see water out the exhaust while running. Good luck

I would like to know the posible causes of engine running hot.

was the engine overheating before this repair? and again do u have bubbles in the coolant tank when the engine is running?, this is best checked when the engine is 1st started. I ask because I think u may have a leaking cylinder head gasket, this would account for the overheating still occurring.
