Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

go to an auto parts store and get a can of gasoline additive called seafoam. Read the label so you know how much to add to your 6 gallon tank. This stuff works wonders on outboard motors.

Weed eater runs but wont take fuel acts like running out of gas


Hello David,
You most likely have 1 or 2 problems causing this problem, both which have to do with the carburetor reservoir bowl.
1. The bowl is contaminated with dirt in with the gas causing the port to be clogged and won't allow gas to be siphoned into the carb /engine.
2. The rubber gasket on the top of the bowl is cracked due to the alcohol in the gas and needs to be replaced!
Good luck!

My PE550 weedeater edger that won't stay running. I have new carb, new fuel lines, new starter coil. any idea what could be the problem? I am now checking the gas cap, breather is good


check your fuel lines ensure you have them on correctly also check spark plug clean if necessary also when you change out fuel lines and carb it may take quite a few pulls to crank cause the little fuel system has to get primed up!

Engine runs great for 10 minutes and then stalls. Won't start until is sits 3-5 minutes. Replaced fuel lines, filter, cleaned carb., replaced spark plug. What else could be causing this?


Believe it or not, your gas cap is clogged up with dirt and debris. When a carburetor is unable to get a constant flow of air from outside, pressure builds up on the fuel tank. The fastest way to determine whether or not this is the problem is as follows.

As you are using your Mower, at that point when it begins to stall out, loosen the gas cap so that you release the pressure that is built up in the gas tank. If the engine begins to regain power, then you know it is a clogged gas cap. (Simply get a small wire and clear the breathe holes in the cap.) If the engine dies even after loosening the gas cap, then you may want to check to make sure the air breather is clean. ( A dirty air breather can cause the engine to over heat and stall out.)

If none of this seems to help, then it is probably a bad Ignition Coil.

Good Luck!

hi please check the tank breather it maybe allowing to build up pressure and unsseating the needle valve

try another breather or tank cap if it uses cap with breather

check that the main check valve / nozzle is working correctly

you mentioned carb has been re-kited

did you fit the pump diaphram on carb then the pump gasket ?

also the metering diaphram has the gasket 1st then diaphram then the cover ( make sure vent hole is clear on cover )

but sounds like a faulty breather

cheers

Ryobi 775r gas trimmer stalling when tilted


You have a air leak between to tank and motor. Could be carb gasket. When using in tilted position you dont have gravity feeded carb anymore, causing air to be sucked into carb. Take off carb and spray with crb cleaner, then blow out with air gun. Replace gasket, make sure all new lines and bulb connections are connected securely.

Engine Stalls out


The gas cap may be clogged.

The next time you run the trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. If it starts running again, then you know that it's a clogged gas cap.

You may also check the air breather, it may be dirty as well.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Primer bulb on weedeater won't prime


when you prime the bulb it sucks gas from the tank with the small tube, any excess gassed pumped will be fed back to the carb via the big tube leading to the tank. If you prime it and the bulb stays pushed down, then you have a clog or kink. To fix , pull the small tube out of the tank through the fill hole. Pull off the filter on the end and put the tube back in the tank. If it primes, your fuel filter was clogged. If it still wont prime check the hose going to the carb and make sure isnt clogged or kinked.(take of carb and blow in it). If that doesnt fix it take off the bulb from the carb with two screws. The bulb assembly will come off too(rectange metal thing) Take off the two black gaskets, be carefull with them. Take off hoses from carb and bulb asembly. Blow carb cleaner in all holes and over surface. Put back together.
If the carb wont prime and the bulb isnt staying depressed. then you might have a bad bulb or carb gaskets. Make sure hoses are not cracked, cloged, or pinched.

Probably needs a carb kit, check main jet and main fuel inlet jet, is the spark crisp, fat and powerful, try running it with a borrowed coil as this may have an intermittent fault.

Hey Don, I understand your frustration! Had the same problem years ago. Sounds like your gas tank is not breathing.Try this: Run the trimmer until it begins to stall out, then loosen the gas cap slightly. The trimmer should begin to run again. If it begins to run, then the gas cap is clogged. Clear the breather hole or purchase new gas cap. This should solve the problem.
