Dies when i give it gas

The blower starts up and will idle forever. When I give it gas, it bogs down. If I then let off the gas it will go back to idle. If I continue to hold the gas it stops running.

Sounds like your carburetor either needs cleaned or the needles need adjusted. Try turning them just a bit and continue trying to accelerate the engine. If your carb has adjustable needle screws, one will be the low speed adjustment and the other will be the high speed adjustment. You'll know when you have the right one when the motor starts to run just a bit better after adjusting the correct one.

Car idles fine, but sputters, bogs and dies if gas pedal is pressed.

new spark plugs this decade. (a tune up?0
the filter is part of all 60k tuneups. letting it clog wrecks good pumps.
my wild guess, its lack of fuel flow, do to old filter.
or low fuel pressure.
car is identical to a Corolla. so is not unique or rare as some Geo cars are.
the cam belt not changes, invites valve kissing piston tops. BOOM
end of engine. (costs more to fix then worth of car)
the word is bogging, my engine bogs
if if bogs WOT (wide open throttle) and dont catch up < ITS NOT THE TPS. ever.
tps bad causes short bogs, called hesitations.
The map sensor , is what measure air flow and the ECU matches fuel to this air flow.
my guess, is it does that, but fuel pressure is like 15PSI, bad.

Blower runs at idle then when you give it gas it bogs down until it shuts off

try to choke it part way and see if it still bogs down, if it does then check your exhaust screen, if partial choke helps it then check fuel lines for cracks, fuel filter for being dirty and also remember fresh gas too, if all else fails clean your carb out.

thats what it sounds like, a bad or clogged up fuel filter. if it bogs down when giving it gas, or going up a hill. its probably the fuel filter not letting enough fuel to engine. that is why it stalls at a stop. if this helps but not fully. check or clean idle air control motor. this is what maintains proper idle of vehicle. have a good day !!

Stihl leaf blower motor dies when i try to give it full throttle

If the low and high speed screw are adjustable give them a try. Start with one turn on the low and two turns on the high speed. If these screws are fixed then you will probably have to put a carburetor kit in the carb. I hope this has been of some help. Donnyb60
