Question about Garden

My gas weedeater is very hard to start and after about 5 tries it slowly sputters into life. Once I finally get the thing going, it is very smokey and it likes to kill frequently. What is wrong with this thing?

Weedeater will idol but won't run - it will cut off when you try to give it gas


To begin with, let's start with the basics.
  1. Are you using fresh gas? If not, you need to get some. If there is any old gas/oil mixture in the machine, remove it by pouring it into some sort of container.
  2. If want to purchase a gas/oil mixture already mixed, a store like Home Depot or Lowes has quart cans at the correct mixures. 50:1 / 40:1 etc. and it's Leaded gasoline usually 91 octane.
Weedeaters will lose their carburetor adjustment over time because of vibration or the fuel mixtures may change. The carburetor settings are crucial for the machine to run properly.
Not all carburetors are the same, but which ever one you have, you will need a special adjusting tool to do this. You can find adjusting sets locally or here. https://www.amazon.com/HIPA-Carburetor-Adjustment-Including-21-Teeth/dp/B01FAAKN7E/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1467833656&sr=8-3&keywords=carburetor+adjusting+tool

Not To do this process, you will need to identify the 2 special

adjusting screws on the top or side of the carburetor.
The screws are highlighted as HI and LO. The HI allows fuel adjustment for the weedeater at full throttle. The LO is for the adjusting the idle.

Try these steps:
1. Adjust both screws clockwise until just seated (tight) using the correct tool (from a set similar to the one above)
2. Rotate the HI screw 1 1/2 turns counter-clockwise
3. Rotate the LO screw 1 turn counter-clockwise
4. Start the machine.
5. When it's running (spitting, coughing...) adjust the LO screw a 1/4 turn either way until you get a smooth idle.
6. Pull handle to run at full throttle. If the engine is sputtering then it's getting too much fuel....adjust the HI 1/4 turn clockwise checking to see if the engine runs smoother.
7. When you get the weedeater running smoothly, there are no further adjustments to be made. Just make sure you are using FRESH gas/oil that hasn't been sitting longer than 30 days.
Good Luck!

Sputtering while driving and running funny.


It could be a clogged fuel filter or you could have a old gas coated inside the carbrator. Seafoam will fix that up in a hurry. Don't be supprised if it blows smoke its cleaning all the junk bout of your carbrator. I would start with the simpelist things first. Fuel filter Check your carbrator Throttle adjustment Fuel pump relay Defiantly get a Haynes manual it will trouble shoot you through your problem.

Acceleration problem


possibly camshaft position sensor in the distributor, or weak fuel fump starts acting up when warm, or throttle position sensor. heat has a effect on sensors and electrical components in some weird and hard to find ways.

Vanguard V Twin 18 hp. monted in Cushman Motor scooter, runs great at W.O.T and at on quarter throttle, misses at range inbetween


Sounds like your carb needs the fuel/air mix adjusted..uses all the gas at high speed but has excess at low speeds...find your adjusting screw and at med throttle slowly screw it clockwise until the engine starts to sputter then back it out until it starts to sputter again then continue to do this until you reach ideal mix where it runs the best it can..then go slowly through the throttle up and down..when set..unjust your idle speed screw to your ideal idle speed..if this dies not fix ..carb will bed cleaned or rebuilt. Good luck.. Note always push or pull your throttle handle slowly to position avoids gas load up causing sputter and backfire.

Hi tinkerbel925

Have you tried scanning it with a scan tool? If this much is going wrong there should be a check engine light on. This will tell you what is making your van do all that crazy stuff.

Weedeater is usable and ready, don't know how to start it


I hope you have fresh gas and 2-cycle oil mixed up! They always seem to start strong and explosively cut on good, fresh fuel. :D

1:Choke on.

2:Push the primer bulb (rubber ball by the side of the air filter) 3 times.

3:Place trimmer on ground. Grasp the handle, squeezing the throttle fully in left hand. Kneel and give that starter a crisp, sharp tug with your right hand. If the engine "hits", then push in the choke until off. Goto step 4.

If it does not give a hint of life, repeat the tug on the line 2 more times. If it STILL does not start, check for a distinct odor of gasoline. Likely, at this point, it is flooded, proceed to step 5.

4: With choke now off, continue to depress the throttle fully and give it another sharp pull on the starter. If it starts and revs? Let it idle for a minute to warm up, then go to work!

5:With choke OFF, press and hold throttle at full. It may take several pulls on the starter rope to see any life. If after 10 pulls and there is still no life, and still smells of gasoline - time to see the Ex about getting the trimmer looked after for some TLC. :D

Is your choke ok? A little carb or injector cleaner might be of some help in this situation. Use sparingly.

Timing OK? Can you check it?

Failing these things, it might be time for a shop tuneup.

Good luck to you

Bad running craftsman 25cc trimmer 4 yrs old


You need to do a couple of things to get your trimmer back on track. First of all pour out the old gasoline and get rid of it. Then remove the spark plug and go to an auto parts store and get a new one just like the old. If you have your manual, check to see what the recommended spark plug gap is gap it to that specification.

Finally remove the air filter and clean it or replace it as necessary.

Once that is all done, but some new, fresh gasoline. Then put in the new plug and the new gas and u will be good to go. please rate this answer as a FixYa cause it is.

I had a similar problem.
At a cold start the rpm would come up normally then slowly drop then stall out. Car would stall at lights and stop signs. My mechanic after having for 3 days found a faulty cam sensor.
