After cleaning carb, I now have raw gas coming out the exhaust???


Hi, Barry and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.
Good luck and have nice a day.

Motor coughs and splutters upon acceleration


Hi Anonymous, if you have a carbuerator the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system (gas cap).
2. Inlet system air leak.
3. Vacuum piston malfunction.
4. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
5. Plugged bowl vent.
6. Fuel level (float chamber) too low.
7. Restriccted fuel supply passages.
8. Plugged jets or passages.
9. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
10. Enrichner valve not seated or leaking.

Engine starts then backfires and sometimes leaks gas on exhaust


IS it leaking gas on the exhaust or thru the exhaust. I have seen the float in the carb stick in the down or fill position and flood thru the exhaust.

Gas is leaking from behind front section of chain. what's back there that could be leaking and how do i fix it


Probably carbs overlowing, overflow pipes from the carburettor-s will hang out from below the engine, thus if the float valve sticks in the carb the fuel will overflow away from hot exhaust, you will have to follow pipe up to the offending carb remove float bowl and inspect and clean float valve, you will have to remove float and inspect the valve and its seating for dirt or varnishing which is caused when fuel is left for a prolonged time within the carb

The unit just started burning oil like crazy on start up. Tons of white smoke and oil coming out of the exhaust. Its a 4 stroke motor so im not sure what the problem is. Any help??


Remove the Oil Breather from the side of the engine near the base of the valves and clean it with both engine degreaser and carb cleaner. If the reed assy sticks on the breather the crank case will over pressurize and port oil into the breather. Also if the engine was over-serviced with oil it will present the symptom you describe. Sometimes a carb problem will allow fuel to leak into the crank case after sitting for a long time and the oil will have gas in the oil. Sniff check the oil. If it smells like gas you may also have a sticking carb float or float needle.

If you need more assistance just repsond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly

Gasoline leaks thru the air filter when you open the valve from the gas tank to the carb.


I think the float in the carb is sticking. Tap on the carb a few times and then try it. You may have to rebuild the carb.

Engine pumps raw gas out of the carb under power


NEED TO KNOW WHAT KIND OF ENGINE. DOES IT HAVE A PUMP? IS IT GRAVITY FEED? IS THE CARB AND GAS TANK ONE PIECE? IT SOUNDS LIKE FLOAT IS STUCK OR FLOAT BOWL GASKET BAD. COULD BE ALOT OF THINGS. NEED ENGINE MODEL OR NAME ON COVER.

Fuel in the crankcase


Your float valve is sticking - the carb fills up, the fuel runs out through the carb into the engine.
Get a new float valve, until then - turn the fuel off at night.
