Needle valve in the carburetor is not stopping the flow of gas. It may need to be rebuilt. You also may have flooded the unit trying to start it.
I would have a shop do a compression test on the engine; it needs to be at least 100 psi to run.

Hi, my golf mk1 1.6 1995 model makes a tapping sound when i drive it but it stops when i idle

Sounds like to me a small exhust leak either
a exhust manafold gasket or exhust flange
gasket or cracked exhust manifold.
Anything else would be enteral meaning
valves need to be set, bad lifter, bad rod bearing,
bad oil pump, or timing chain tensioner,
BUT I would be willing to put my money
on an exhust leak or timing chain tensioner
it's one of the 2

My Yamaha 2400 is not running smooth and it lopes. It has about 40 hours on it. I cleaned the filter Air and put a little additive to boost gas. Also changed spark plug which was dark at the probe. I do...

40hrs? I'd look at the exhust.There is a screen that fits INSIDE your exhust.A small flat tipped screw driver should pry it out easy.In chainsaws they're used for spark arresters,the same on these I think.Quick wirebrush and your exhust should be able to flow and not back up.
I've had my 2400 7 yrs now here in Alaska,out in the woods where I live.I need a Boost Control Unit,teach me for not using a ground wire,I burned a pin out in my unit.$800 part for a $1,300 generator.I really really like mine so I'll buy another and keep looking for a used one online.

Leaf blower runs then sputters and smoke poors out of exhust then runs and repeats cycle like it is burning oil.

Sounds like its not getting enough air, check the air breather filter. Stephen.
