SOURCE: gasoline leaks thru the air filter when you open

I think the float in the carb is sticking. Tap on the carb a few times and then try it. You may have to rebuild the carb.

SOURCE: gasoline leaking into air filter on Briggs &

The float/needle-valve/seat need to be looked at in the carburetor base. The float is not shutting off fuel flow when bowl is at design fuel level. Look for dirt/varnish or anything that interferes with float free movement or preventing the needle valve to close with the seat--usually, just cleaning these parts with spray carburetor cleaner and wiping with a clean cloth will restore operation. Try not to bend anything on the float assembly. Hope this helps!

hi there

pauly 46 here sounds like tank breather and carby problems ?

have you checked that the muffler and ex port are not blocked ?

have you checked that the tank breather is working, and that the fuel pump diaphram is ok - no holes or damaged / stiff , and also that the metering diaphram and needle valve are ok and are not sticking open, or the lever setting is too high or the diaphram is just too stiff and holding the needle open

either way check tank breather and carby diaphrams , and needle valve and lever and the muffler and ex port for blockage

i assume compression and spark and timming and induction system are all ok
if its still hard to start and everything checks out as good might have a air leak

only way to know is to pressure and vac test crankcases

might pay to let your local shop do this because you need some special tools

but cover the basics 1st

cheers pauly46 hope it helps

My car smells really strong of gasoline when I start my ford escape?

You may have a leaky injector or fuel filter. If it comes stronger when you just start your car, it could be because the injector is leaking overnight and builds up on the engine, which is then promptly burned and brought in through the air vents.

How do i clean throttle plates on 2004 gmc envoy?

Throttle body has nothing to do with the gasoline, it only regulates incoming air. In order to find the gas leak you will need to remove the air resonator assembly that goes from the air filter to the throttle body. Then you can get a look at the fuel rail and injector hook-ups.

2002 rm 125 oil drain plug size

Anyone who uses gasoline to clean an air filter - needs to re-think that. Gas totally ruins the seams and shortens the life of foam air filters. Gasoline is far too harsh a solvent to clean an air filter. Use something a bit "softer" like Kerosene or even Diesel. These will help your air filter last much longer. Where, sure, gasoline will clean the filter, and many people have been using it for years to clean foam air filters, but, really, gas is horrible for cleaning air filters in the long run. Not to mention how dangerous it is.

If you want to save money, and NOT have to buy air filters as often, do NOT use gasoline to clean it. Use Kerosene or gentler solvents. Any good mechanic will tell you the same.

I have 2000 mitsubishi mirage. Code P0170 FUEL TRIM MULFUNTION (BANK 1). What does that mean?


That code typically comes on due to an air leak, clogged fuel injectors, clogged fuel filter, or even a bad mass air sensor. I have answered other questions from people with similar problems, and some have had luck simply using a fuel injector cleaner with a full tank of premium gasoline. I've had good luck with STP Complete Fuel System Cleaner, available at most auto parts stores. I would also recommend you replace your air filter.

If your light had turned off, there really isn't much any mechanic can do, though you can ask for them to check for any air leaks in your intake system. But if your light comes on again and stays on, the problem probably is with your mass air sensor, and would probably need to be replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
