Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

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.

If you need further assistance on replacing fuel lines, just let me know.

I have a Echo PB-260L Blower. It starts fine then gradually loses power sometimes completely shutting off. I have replaced the fuel filter spark plug air filter and have cleaned the screen.


Check the exhaust port upstream from the muffler and make sure it is not restricted with carbon. Mine was less than half way covered over with carbon. Scraped out carbon, checked muffler and screen(ok), back-blow the fuel line harness including the fuel filter and fuel tank vent and took carb apart and blew out all passages, not replacing anything and now runs fine. Would not rev past high idle before. Be sure gas is FRESH and mixed at 40-50 to 1. Hope this helps.

No spark at the plu


Generally gap is required for the plug, this is due to less power from the wire, kindly call the electrician and check the spark strength and the plug model. Then you come to know whether the problem is in electric side or mechanic side.
Kindly rate my help+++ Thank you.

Husqvarna 125L quit running, it runs then shuts off


You likely need to replace the muffler,this is a common problem and if the engine can't get rid of the exhaust it also will not take in more fuel,happens a lot with anything with a spark arrester in the muffler.

Troy-bilt gas edger trencher won't start. Spark


Remove spark plug and pour 5mls or one teaspoon of premixed gas in the engine. Depress trottle to full with choke on "run", pull starter about 10 to 12 times If it starts and run for a while and then shuts off your carb needs servicing. If not remove muffler and look for a spark arrestor screen. This could be plugged up with soot. If it is, replace and this would have been your problem. While the muffler is off slowly pull starter rope and examine the piston if gas and oil oozes backwards as the piston moves to the top then the piston and rings need replacing.

Won't start. Has compression. backfiring through


On many riding mowers there are two wires that at the bottom of the carb bowl, these wires go to a solenoid which closes a valve so gas will shut-off when the start key is turned off. When this solenoid is bad it will not close which let gas keep going to the carb so the eng will bang through the carb or muffer. Hope that this will Help. Hugh Lyon

Car keeps shutting off


I can solve part of your problem. I would check the crakshaft position sensor. These are located behind the harmonic balancer. This will caues the engine to shut off when the engine is at opperating temperature. As for your fluctuating fuel needle, I have a question for you. Do you use Shell gas at all? If you do then their detergents in the gas has eaten away at your fuel sending unit and it needs to be replaced. Only use Esso, PetroCanada (if you are in Canada) or Chevron gas if at all possible. Shell has had dealer bulletins about GM and Dodge not using their gas. The check engine light is usually a faulty O2 sensor but replace the CP sensor first.
