SOURCE: cannot get mower to start.

Hi mikpanos...
Here is some help for your problem...

Check to make sure you are getting fire/spark at the plug, if so then do the following:
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

SOURCE: I changed the air filter, pre-filter, fuel filter,

Sounds like the float valve is sticking open. You will have to drain the gas (or at least turn off the valve where the gas leaves the tank if so equipped.) Then remove the bowl to clean the float valve. (There is usually a nut in middle of the bowl.) The bowl looks like a bowl, and is about 2 inches in diameter. When you remove it you will see the float, which probably looks like a little brass donut. If you remove the hinge pin that allows the float to move up and down (it only moves about 1/2 inch) you will then allow the valve pin to fall out. The valve pin is about 3/4 inches long and maybe 3/16 diameter. (I am not measuring these things, just giving approximate dimensions so you will recognize them when you see them.) Good luck, Al K

Gas is leaking after I put gas in. It looks like the fuels lines are in. Does the filter attach to the gas lines? I don't see an air filter on my 536-77240000 craftman edger.


If you just replaced the lines, alot of times the lines outerm diameter is not correct, causing leaks...other times its the gas cap itself, However, there shouldn't be any hole under a gas tank... at least not where any air filter would be close by..

Car quits when i push on the gas


car quit when you accelerate,could have stopped up fuel filter or weak fuel pump, check fuel pressure with new fuel filter should be 40 - 47 psi.if fuel okay could have massive intake leak,check for air leak at the air intake duct if air intact duct goes to air filter is open that will cause intake leak or intake manifold gasket leaking or ignition timing off timing chain could jump time for high mileage engine.

My 2003 subaru forester idle very rough. if you open the hood and look at the engine it is shaking like its firing on only three cylinders. I need some help.I changed the spark plugs, gas filter, air...


1) Check all the vacuum hoses for a leak in the rubber hose or a hose that isn't connected. Vacuum leaks cause motors to shake and stumble on acceleration.
2) There's a plastic T connection on the back side of the engine behind and under the air cleaner box. That T connector joins together three air hoses of different sizes and is prone to breaking from heat stress. Only a Subaru dealer will have this part.
3) Even though the spark plug wires are new, you may have a bad one. Don't waste your money on cheap parts; they cost more in the long run.
Good luck!
