Engine bogs when throttling

Just lately the saw bogs as soon as any pressure is placed on the engine....even just normal throttling. It runs fine on idle. I have not changed any of the idler screws....yet. Any suggestions?

Jamie it sounds as though you have a fuel delivery problem. What little fuel system there is can be found here: (click "Go")
On the "Handle, Chassis and Bar Assembly" drawing.

This can be caused by a dirty or loose carburetor, cracked fuel lines, dirty air filter, plugged fuel filter, old fuel mix, and a few more things that aren't coming to mind.

If you attempt a repair take extensive notes and some digital pictures as things progress.

You can get it tuned up for about $40 at a good saw shop (Stihl, Husky, Etc), They do an inspection, change the plug, and adjust the carburetor. Explain your symptoms, ask for an estimate to repair & perform a tune up. If you do this (recommended) ask what oil/fuel ratio they used. Use the same ratio until the next time you have it tuned again. HTH

Starts fine, runs fine (full throttle) for about 30 seconds and then just bogs down when throttle is depressed (or still held in). But still idles fine after it has warmed up a little.


More than likely it is your fuel line collapsing. When the rubber gets stretched, worn, aged, or run on gas with 10% alcohol, especially the last, the rubber gets weak and collapses on itself at full speed. That is why it runs till the suction collapses the line but still allows enough through to idle. Once the saw is shut off the line will fill up again when the suction stops and you can run till the line is empty again. It is worse if your filter is clogged also. Went through this when they came out with this crappy gas in the late 1980's. Had to carry spare fuel lines while logging because the lines could not take the alcohol. That is why I burn airplane fuel in my saws. No alcohol or storage problems. If you look up around Oct 1 or 2 I wrote how to change the fuel line. Hope this helps.

2003 yz 250 starts and idles but runs rich and bogs as soon as the throttle is applied


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
6. Plugged bowl vent or overflow.
7. Fuel level in bowl too low.
8. Restricted fuel supply passages.
9. Plugged jets or passages.
10. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
11. The enrichner valve not seated or leaking.

Service engine soon light is on in our 1999 olds bravada. engine runs fine. code is P0453


Evaporative emission control system Fuel Tank Pressure (FTP) sensor high input-----
This is a normal defect in late 90's model GMs. To be more specific, your fuel tank has sensors set in place to slowly release pressure to regulate the fuel system. One of the sensors has malfunctioned and is causing the service engine light to turn on. It has absolutely no bearing on the mechanical operation or performance of the vehicle. Unless you want to spend over a thousand dollars to repair something unnecessarily, just learn to live with the light. Nothing else will come of it.

2002 s10 zr2 runs rough bogs down when you


First check for any cracked pipes leading into the intake manifold If all OK (with no codes showing it probably is OK) try checking the fuel pressure regulator. If you smell fuel from the pressure regulator vacuum side arm (when the vacuum line has been disconnected) it needs to be replaced.

My poulan wild thing 2375 bogs out when throttle


Make sure that the air cleaner and muffler are not plugged. Check the carburetor screws and nuts for tightness. After turning both needles CW to stops (lightly), back them out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Open the throttle and adjust the H needle CW somewhat until the engine speeds up, but is 4-stroking. Correct adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW till the engine runs fairly smoothly, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw so that the chain doesn't turn, but the engine keeps running. Hope this helps!

Engine bogs down when speed is increased.


Ok I have r Royobi Tiller (30CC Gas) And last year it ran fine after rebuilding the Carb. This year it was "hard starts" Idles fine, (Tiny whisps of blue smoke in exhaust with correct ratio) Even seems to run better with the choke "on" but still...at idle only. as soon as I touch the throttle...its bogs down in tune with how much gas I give it. Little throttle? Little bog down, Little more throttle? Almost stalls, a normal throttle rev? it stalls dead! Then starts right back up again in 1 pull and idles fine again!? WTF? So after cleaning a clean carb again, (twice) and seeing no change I thought I'd go look at the original diaphragm and compare it with the rebuild kit diaphragm (which is the one in the carb.) And guess what? The replacement has a larger rivet by a factor of "2". So basically it was flooding the carb, I bent the needle tang down, better but no cigar. But I could rev it half way now. A second disassemble to bend it yet a bit further and Vrooom vroom vrooom ****! So check your needle valve even though you think its 100%. (Especially if you rebuilt the carb with a kit!)

Engine stalls right after start up has fuel press.


Fuel pump. It may have some pressure but not enough pressure to run the car properly. We just had to replace the pump on my son's 97 s10. It had a little pressure but not enough to run. Would start up and die as soon as you started into the throttle. They can check the pressure at a repair shop - you need a special guage.

2000 GMC Sierra 3500 losing acceleration power


next time it happens try spraying water in mist form around the throttle body if it bogs, replace the throttle body gasket. if it doesn't bog you may have a bad wire wait until dark start the vehicle have someone feed the fuel very slowly and watch for arching from a wire it will be easy to see when it is dark, replace that wire.
