I dont know what type of engine you have, but you must remove the carburettor and dismantle it . The problem could be with the fuel inlet needle valve which could be dirty and sticking or it might be the float. Wash the carb. with a clean brush and fuel. Sometimes the float becomes perforated and fills with fuel and weighs it down, so the carb. will overflow. Try this, it`s the best i can do. Stephen.

2003 2liter runs fine but it just quits after sitting still for a min or two but starts right back up

I would start with cleaning the idle air control, then would clean the mass air flow. Also check the air filter. I have ran into oil soaked air filters on the Focus.

Likely a fuel problem.
Replace the gas filter and air filter.
The gas filter should be under pressure from the fuel pump.
If the problem persists you may need a new fuel pump. This is usually located on top of the Fuel tank and it is hard to get to.

The battery is not charging. As long as I have a hot battery in my JD lx176 it will start, but the battery discharge light stays on until battery drains.

Under dash on left side you will see the regulator tucked behind frame. Once located unplug white connector and check the Brown wire for any damage in or around connector. These will tend to melt or turn the area around the Brown wire black do to poor connection. If everything looks good there then replace regulator.

I have a 89 chevy 1500 4x4 with a power steering leek and can't see the line that is leeking because it is going throught the fram after leaving the gear box

A very Fast leak Is Simple to Diagnose
  1. Start Engine with reservoir Full
  2. Have a Helper to sit inside
  3. Go under vehicle and look where you suspect leak is
  4. Have helper turn steering wheel to
  5. RIGHT or LEFT All the way till it stops and hold it there
  6. If you see it Pouring out from the Area suspected.
  7. That WILL be the HIGH PRESSURE Power searing hose.
  8. Under High Demand they have lots of pressure.
The Low side (RETURN will leak ALL the TIME and just Drip unless there is a Large hole in it
Hope I Have Helped

Tractor not starting , I do not see any gas in fuel filter

I would suspect the fuel pump. Those thin diaphragms wear out every few years. But you can also make sure there is no obstruction in the line from your tank at the same time!

Difficulty starting

darn thing wouldnt start after I fueled it up. After sitting for 10 min it fires right up and runs great. When starting cold it fires right up with no prob. Someone told mevapor lock is my issue this sound right ? and if so what is vapor lock and how do I prevent it ? thx all for your support.,The vapor lock situation happened to me a few times with my 748, so it CAN happen. To test this theory, just fill your tank to 1/2 of what it normally holds, next time you fill it. Or pop the cap off right now and let it sit for 10 minutes and close it back up again. Al your doing is releasing the pressure on the system. Will this do any good? Well, had always been filling my tank too high and once I realized that popping the gas cap, would release the pressure, I never had a problem after.,,,
