Question about Poulan Garden

1 Answer

The chainsaw starts fine but only works for 10 minutes then stalls out. It can not be started again. I will wait a week and it will do the same thing. I checked/cleaned the spark plug and looked at the fuel lines for anything foreign in the gas that might choke the supply. Nothing. Any help would be appreciated.

When it starts to starve out loosen the fuel cap. If it smooths out and runs properly you have a plugged fuel vent. Get back to us with this information and the model number. We can probably help repair that too. GL

    If not a vent problem it might also be a coil that quits once hot. Fuel delivery problem is usually slow, you have some time to react. If it just quits with little warning try this very soon after it stalls. Sometimes they quit once hot.

    You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode.

Ford excursion 2002 - starting fine but losing power and stalling after running for 10 minutes. Rest for about 5 minutes, then starts up again


Can you perform a spark test? I would like to know if it has spark when it stalls. Also, if you have a can of starter fluid, wait for it to stall and not want to restart, the quickly spray some starter fluid into the intake. If it runs on the starter fluid, you have a fuel issue. You might also want to make sure the engine coolant level is fine and you aren't overheating. If you coolant level is low you may not know it is overheating since the coolant sensor isn't in coolant. It won't read air.

Programing a key fob


1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.
If this doesnt work, you may have a failure in your system. If the security light is on, and the reprogram doesnt work, you might want to look into bypassing that antitheft system.

Stalling


Possibly faulty ignition module is the problem, stalls when engine is hot when you sit for a while it cools off and runs again until it heats up again, those are usually the symptoms of a bad ignition module and after a while it may give out all together and not run at all, usually if the module is at fault it shuts down the fuel pump so the engine don't load up with fuel, do to when engine continuously cranks over the injectors never stop squirting fuel and flood the engine do to lack of spark which is produced by the module, this could possibly be your problem.
