The units came out with EPA carb's some have idle screw adjustment and preset high jet, or the other way depending on the unit. try and change the fuel, use only high octane fuel for 2 cyc no ethanol with fresh oil mix, run for about 5 to 10 min's. if your carb has adjustment screws set your low side idle screw but still change the fuel.

What are the air and gas settings for a poulan micro XXV chain saw


adjust the L screw in fully till right in,then out 1.5 turns,same with H screw.Then start saw,adjust L screw in or out slowly till you get max revs.You may need to lower idle via idle screw if revs too high.When screw cant acheive better revs,reset idle.Then,rev saw to max revs,adjusting H screw to get max revs,then when max revs acheived,turn screw anti clockwise 1/4 turn out.That gives it enough petrol to cool the tip of the plug

I have a Stihl 009 chain saw that I just rebuit the carb on and when it runs at high speed it does so only for a few seconds then dies. It will idle all day long. What could the problem be?


Have you replaced the fuel filter in the tank? it will idle as the engine is not calling for much fuel, however at full revs it calls for a greater amount of fuel, if that fuel is not available the saw dies.

Atv hanging idle


check your float height? sounds like its high and runs normal when cold like the choke is on but when warm its getting too much fuel.

Starts just fine but dies at idle. will keep running when stepp[ng on gas pedal


if the car runs fine at high revs, I suggest just turning the idle revs up 150ish, it could be a block cat converter, or restricted airflow making it die. but quick fix turn revs up 150rpm will do no harm and if it dies at higher revs, take it 2 the garage to see if they can find the thing.

Does not idle and revs up and down and then it


You need to rebuild your carb. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: When you remove your idle/high speed jet screws be sure to count the turns...the ideal way is to count the turns when you bottom out the screws and the when you replace them, bottom them out and turn the screws to the same position before removal ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The problem you described is normally caused by debris in the carb. While you have the carb apart, it would be wise to replace the diaphrams also, they will harden in time and cause hard starting and sporatic running I hope this helps, good luck Please rate me, Thanks

Check your Ignition timing before anything
check your plugs see what color they are
red or orange means carb is to lean , black
or oil means to rich then you can go from there
and set mixture screws on carb , let me no how you make out .
