    May be you need to get the carb cleaned. My weedeater would start but when off choke and try to rev it up it would die. I got some carb and choke cleaner and took it off the machine and gave it a good cleaning.

Maybe get some carb and choke cleaner and clean the carb really well. It might have some varnish in the little holes that the fuel moves through. If you take the carb apart to clean it make sure you get a rebuild kit so you can replace the paper gaskets and the diaphram.

Let me know if this helps.

Engine cutting out and lack power

Buy a set of spark plugs and install them. New spark plug wires would be good, too, especially if yours are old and original. Read your old spark plugs when you take them out-note any odd ones and from what cylinder they came out of. Check your air filter. If it is dirty, replace it.
You should check your fuel pressure. Autozone and others loan or rent fuel pressure gauge testers. High fuel pressure is crucial for the injectors on modern engines to work right. It's usually an easy test to do, just compare your pressure reading to what is specified for your car. It will tell you pretty quick if the fuel pump and the fuel filter have anything to do with your problem or not.

Another thing you could check is to have a scan done of the engine computer for trouble codes. The computer may have detected a problem related to the cutting out. If your car or truck is made after 1996, most parts stores offer free scans.

I have a 1996 frontera petrel 2.2 it drives well but some times when driving it losses power and cuts out. It will start strat away but no power for about 5 minits then after that its fine

I would go get your fuel system cleaned... Walmart offers that service. Cheap so worth it to rule that out if problem persist. Engine needs air and fuel to produce power. Lack of power fuel or sparks plugs first place to rule out.

Craftsman mower with 6.75 B&S motor will start and run fine for about 3-4 minutes and then slowly chokes out. I cleaned the air filter and need to know what to check next. Thanks.

hi there
though you have cleaned the filter it could still be not getting enough air you can start the machine without it and see if stays running do not do work with it just see if it runs sitting there if it does simple fix new filter however if it does the same it is a lack of fuel either fuel filter if has one if not it will be in the carburater these get gumed up by old gas in which in that case find a small engine repair shop to take care of this issue
thank you for the question hope i helped with the issue good luck and have a great day

Ryobi PBC 3046YE strimmer starts but cuts out when speed control

A lack of acceleration in these units is most likely a fuel delivery related issue. It may possibly be time for a diaghram kit or carb rebuild kit to be installed in your carburetor. Ethanol in the gas deteriorates the parts that accomplish the acceleration procedure and may need to be replaced as they don't function anymore.
Many other things can affect these little machines as well such as clogged air filters, clogged crank case vent, clogged mufflers/exhaust ports./ spark arrestor screens...but more often than not, your problem is a carburetor issue.

1997 Yamaha Kodiak 400, hard to start, once you get it running, it will run for around 100 ft then QUIT, have changed CDI, coil, stator, pickup coil, new carb kit, new battery, fresh battery, new air...

When you say new carb kit what exactly do you mean as this problem sounds more like a fuel problem rather than electrical although I would bypass the engine kill switch just to be sure and also the side stand cut out switch, have you cleaned out the pilot jets and air bleed pipes (do not poke anything into the holes just blow them out).
Does the vehicle tickover ok and only cut out when riden?

Nannie what can be wrong with my power devil petrol lawn mower the engine wont keep running then cuts out petrol and oil ok

Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.

If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent

02 scenic. runs fine till it gets to normal temperature, then runs rough.. lack of power,chugs on tickover,immissions warning light.. any ideas ??

HI, i would run a diagnostic scan to pull that trouble code. i would assume that the codes will concern a faulty O2 sensor of some sort. i would also change the fuel filter and pump asap.
