Chances are oil is in the combustion chamber and carb. Spray some carb cleaner in the carburetor throat and around the perimeter of the carb then pull out the spark plug and spray some inside the hole, proceed to pull the start cord a few times then reinstall the spark plug then start the unit up it may continue to stall over and over until the oil burns off. you may want to try reving up the motor as best you can while you block off the carb intake (you must remove air cleaner to do this)this will stall the motor restart, blocking off the air intake of the carb as it runs clears out clogged passages in carb by causing a extreme vacuum in the carb throat, have a can of starting fluid handy to get the unit started if it becomes flooded, also the way to get a flooded engine started is to open the throttle all the way while starting then hold it open until it revs up. If it becomes flooded do not choke repeat these steps it should eventually clear out and run.

Does this engine require mix gas?


Peter
you are too short on details like make model , 2 stroke or 4 stroke
read your user manual or look on the petrol cap as most have the ratio on the bowser emblem
so for an answer, it is most likely a 2 stroke and so-- yes-- it will require a oil/fuel mix in the tank
if you do not know it , start with a ratio of 40:1 ( 40 fuel -1 oil) and only use 2 stroke oil not normal engine oil
run at rpms and there should be a trace of blue smoke
too much smoke cut the oil back to 50:1 and no smoke increase the oil to 30:1
go google and type in user manual for ( make and model ) --and the ratio will be in that print put

Bought it at local, start alright with petrol. When try with 2 Stroke RYOBI Synthetic Oil hard to start. Should i just use normal petrol oil?


no --- 2 strokes use a special 2 stroke oil ==not ordinary engine oil==
the difference is that the 2 stroke oil is specially blended to mix with petrol and will not block up the fine jets in the carby
it also "sticks " more readily to the metal components in the engine thus preventing wear
as a point of interest most small engines do not like E mix fuels either
so for trouble free operation --2 stroke oil mixed in the correct ratio with either 89 or 91 octane petrol and it will start first pull every time
use the primer bulb sparingly or the choke until it fores

I have a stihl 2 stroke petrol whipper snipper. It seems to have over heated at the reel end. I have smoke and grease spewing out at that end (metal neck at the reel end) have I fried it?


Sounds like you have a straight shaft trimmer version that have got bad bearing(s) that needs replacing. It probably will take the whole gearbox as a replacement item.

My Ryobi petrol RCS 3540c chainsaw, smokes badly and won't cut into the wood, it just slides off the top most of the time.


Check that the chain is on the right way around. The cutting edge of the teeth on the chain, at the bottom of the bar should face towards you and away from you on the top. It's most likely that the chain is facing the wrong way. If you don't know how to fit a chain look at the video on http://www.ehow.co.uk/video_4419336_replace-chainsaw-chain.htm

If that's not the problem then the chain is blunt and needs to be sharpened badly. You can sharpen it, with a special file which can be got from chainsaw dealers, or take it to a garden tool hire centre and have it sharpened professionally. It has to be sharpened professionally from time to time anyway to keep it cutting straight so if it's that blunt I'd recommend you get done professionally now.

The smoke if it's coming from the chain is caused by overheating from trying to cut with the chain which is too blunt or turned the wrong way. If the smoke is coming from the engine check your fuel. You should have petrol mixed with 2 stroke oil. The saw manual will give the ratio of 2 stroke oil to petrol. If you use too much oil or if it's not 2 stroke it will cause smoke from the engine. Also if you use cheap oil it can cause smoke. It's best to use good quality oil like husqvarna or stihl 2 stroke. These also protect the saw better than the cheap brands you get at car service stations which are really only meant for boats which are water cooled.

I have an old craftsman snowblower. It is a pullstart. I inherited this from my father. He did not have the manual.. wondering if I could find how much gas to oil mix and if it is a 2 cycle or 4 cycle...


The way to tell if it's 2 or 4 stroke is, if it has seperate tanks for the oil and petrol then it would be 4 stroke. I know that's not entirely true in today's world but up to recently it was. If it's 2 stroke then you need to mix the petrol with 2 stroke oil. Unless someone knows the right mix ratio I would start off with a rich mixture of 25:1 and see how it goes. If it's giving off a lot of smoke I'd reduce the oil a little to 30:1. It should be ok with this ratio. Use good quality 2 stroke oil e.g. Husqvarna or Stihl as some of the cheaper oils available at car service stations are not as good at protecting machinery.

I have a homelite f2020 series petrol trimmer i would like to know the petrol and oil ratio mixture please


I use 50:1 with Sthil 2-stroke oil in ALL my 2-stroke equipment. This ratio does not smoke at all, and does not foul plugs.

Never had a problem yet. At this mix ratio, you can also use it in 4-stroke engines, which means you only need 1 fuel can on site. Also eliminates the possibility of using the wrong can to fill the trimmer.

MY MAKITA DPC6410 PETROL SAW IS RUNNING SMOKEY


It uses 2 stroke oil during combustion as it is a 2 stroke powered engine..Sometimes it may be a small deposit of oil and the bottom of the gas container which causes this smoke or else you may have added a bit more oil than needed in the fuel..I assume it is a 2 stroke engine and also note these do give out a little bit of smoke..

Craftsman 6.75hp self propelled mower starts and turns off


I think that this is a 4stroke engine and runs on neat petrol.Have you been putting oil in with the petrol like a 2 stroke engine needs because this would account for the smoking.If not the check that you havn't overfilled the gearbox oil.

Yamaha dt 2003 wont start was working fine then ran out ov petrol then put more petrol in and 2stroke now wont start it started then was smoking bad for like 10 seconds then died now wont start at all btw...


sounds like you may have a air pocket in your fuel system. try cracking the fuel check on the bottom of the carb and make sure you have fuel. the only other thing i can think of is fouled plugs. I know it sounds funny on a 2 stroke but i have seen it happen
