Remove the starter & cylinder cover and look for the coil mounted next to the flywheel. Remove the 2 screws holding it to the cylinder and cafefully pull the wires through the clips that hold them to the block. Install the new coil in the reverse order and set the air gap between the flywheel and the coil with a business card. Let the magnets on the flywheel pull the coil towards it with the business card in between. Tighten the screws and spin the flywheel to remove the card. Reassemble the stater and blower housing.

    Would anyone know if there is a certain way the wires to the coil pack are to be connected as they appear to be the same length? This is on a stihl fs38

My stihl weed eater fs85 hard to start when hot


Try loosening the gas cap to relieve any pressure, then tightening it back up. Usually you will just need to barely unscrew it and then screw it back even before you pull the rope.

My Stihl FS85 runs good for about 20 seconds and then shuts completely off. I have replaced the Plug, cleaned out the fuel system and it still does the same thing. Could it be the coil?


Sounds like the main jet or the diaphrams in the carburetor are deteriorated. Remove carb and soak in a good carburetor dip style cleaner and rebuild with a new kit. Also replace the fuel line and filter and use a fresh gas mix.

I suspect carb. trouble. Is the compression OK? Look at the spark plug after trying to start it. If it is wet, you are getting too much fuel. The white smoke indicates that. You may need to overhaul the carb.
Go on the Stihl site and customer service for information.
