Have you checked to make sure the carb mounting bolts having backed out? Had this problem with mine. Thought the engine was going bad because it started running terribly. Opened it up and one of the carb mounting bolts was backed all the way out and letting air in there messing with the mixture constantly.

Mine starts, runs 5 minutes, tries to die, runs 5 more minutes (poorly) with full choke, then dies. Carb? Cool?


need vehicle make and year. "Full" choke will always flood the engine causing it to dye. once running reduce choke. Is this automatic or manual choke?

Why is it hard to start my Mercruiser 7.4L MPI after a hot run?


Electric choke? Try retrofitting a manual choke. I think the electric choke is closing over a hot engine, thinking that the engine's cooler than it really is. A manual choke will allow you to start it with no choke at all when you know the motor's already warmed up.

1993 HONDA SHADOW VLX 600, STARTS RUNS FOR 5 MINUTES AND DIES, I CHECKED EVERYTHING FUEL RELATED,IT'S NOT A FUEL PROBLEM


From your description you can be fairly certain it is an electronic problem.

I had a similar problem once with my Honda CX500. I found the connections to the ignition module had gone green and a good clean up restored normal running.

Check the idle mixture. Sounds to me like it is too lean.

Lt1050 black smoke after 15 minutes


The black smoke and black spark plugs indicate that the engine is running very rich (ie too much fuel). This could be caused by the choke not opening fully after the engine starts and the fuel mixture is too rich OR the fuel mixture setting is opened too far.
Check the choke lever, make sure the choke is fully open when the choke is in the running position.
When the engine is running with the throttle is in the 3/4 rev position then adjust the fuel mixture to get the highest RPM.

Chainsaw difficult & sometimes impossible to start. Plug looks OK. 5 years old, just occasional use.


Yes. Whether storing your saw for a week or a month, a quality fuel stabilizer adds life to your saw. It can also keep it running with the type of problem your having. Double the recommended strength in your mixing fuel can and replace the fuel in your saw. Remove the spark plug and shoot a 2 second burst of lubricated starting fluid into the cylinder. Replace Spark plug and start your saw. Let it run for at least 2 minutes with the choke on then slowly increase the rpms as you push the choke in. If your saw stalls inside of that 2 minute window, do this procedure when it begins to stall out. If it still will not run, then your jets ( located inside the carb) are plugged up with varnish and you may need to rebuild the carb or replace it - it would be cheaper to rebuild and this is not a difficult job. If you choose to rebuild, get some starting fluid without lubrication to soak the jets in as you clean all the other parts. The starting fluid has a high level of Ether which will break down stubborn Varnish deposits.. Rinse all the parts in your fresh fuel mix ( oil, gas, and stabilizer). Re - assemble carb and flush your fuel tank as well. Put it together and then shoot a 2 second burst of lubricated starting into the cylinder through the spark plug hole. Install spark plug and follow starting procedure, foregoing the primer bulb. Your saw should now be running smoothly unless your carb is defective.
Good luck!!

You may simply need a new fuel cap,vacuum in the tank will rob your fuel and stall it engine,try taking off the fuel cap and see how it runs.If this does not help you may need a new fuel pump,which runs off of crank case pressure and should take over from the choke once the tractor has started.
