Check the tightness of the blades - if it is too tight, it will not rev. A drop of lubricating oil may help.

I have bvm165 mcculloch leaf blower . Runs but bad vibration on high revs then automatically rev switch goes to low revs

check for missing impeller blades or something caught in the impeller blades throwing it off balance
the impeller blades are made of plastic moulding and if you missed it but picked up a rock , that will knock a few blades off the impeller putting it out of balance

01 Audi tt quattro starts to overheat while idling but coils down after driving at higher speed, is it a thermostat or the fast relay switch

overheats at idle only are typically the fan system. Cars use the fan to pull air across the radiator for cooling. Any speed over 10 mph there is more than enough natural wind to do this without a fan. If the problem immediately goes away when you start moving, it is probably a malfunction or issue with the fan. I have on more than 1 occaision had a customer tell me they had the fan replaced and car was still overheating, and it ended up thje fan was spinning backwards or not turning on because of a fuse or relay issue.

If it doesnt cool down fully once speed is above 20mph for more than 30 seconds, there may be other issues like plugged radiator or weak water pump impellars. water pump is a fan that moves water instead of the air. if the blades wear, they still kinda work, but at idle they work poorly because the broken blades only move a little air at low speed, rev the engine up, they spin faster and work better. If the fan is functioning OK (Turns on and off by itself) and car still runs warmer at idle than at rev, water pump may be worth investigation.

Hedge trimmer revs but blades hardly move

Does it rev all the way up to the top end of the rpms, or does it rev but only a small amount, like if you had your car in drive and pressed the gas while stiffly holding the brake? That might mean your blades are too right and you Gould bring them in to be sharpened which will obviously include an adjustment. If it revs up like a food processor and nothing happens, it could be any number of things. First, be happy it runs at all. Now, it could be the gears are no good, the clutch is bad or the drum has separated from it's gear, or maybe the dogs inside that make the blades reciprocate have broken. The only way is to grab a 3mm Allen wrench and open up the lower cover for the gear case. I suggest finding a husqvarna dealer already located. If you determine the problem, I can assist with the repairs

M48a wont rev

Check cable that is not loose when you adjust power or check that there's nothing rapped around the blades could decrease the power it's supposed to give when blade is spinning

Blades wont rotate

Check for a broken pin or loose grub screw in the drive area of the box.

Motor starts and revs but blades do not move. Have checked for corrosion and opened cover plate to check cogs and linkage. also made sure blades move if I manually move them.

Check the pully coming of the crank shaft and see if the key may be broken in there. Or check the tension on the blade belts, if too loose then the belt will be slipping in the pully.
Good luck
