Chainsaw wont stay running Runs 30sec to about 1 1/2 min seems to be starved for fuel


Initial carb setting is 1 full turn out on both low and high side and retry. If no difference, then turn the low side out and additional 1/4 to 1/2 turn CCW. If that makes no difference, then it's time for a carburetor rebuild.

Check the air filter and the duct that goes to it. starving a car for air is as bad as starving it for fuel.

Ford E350 fires but won't continue to run. Seems to be starved for fuel.


I am assuming the engine is gas..
Have you checked base fuel pressure with a gauge ?
Does the engine use a MAF sensor in the air intake ?

Stalls after 20 mins. of running fine. (Starving for gas)


From the rear of machine look at the top left of fuel tank for the fuel line.Where line comes out of tank see if it is pinched where it goes down between frame and tank,grab line and see if it moves freely.If that is OK loosen fuel cap after 10 minutes of run time to see if your vent hole in cap is working.These are 2 common problems for the L series mowers.

Runs 5 mins. and quits seems to be out of gas. cuts out until it


Sounds like you have a stuck float in the carburetor. Sometimes a piece of grit will get in there. You can remove the float bowel location bottom of carburetor , turn off fuel first or pinch line shut needle nose vise grips do a good job for this. First lightly tap the float and blow though fuel line. If it sat a long time might just be a little varnish from old fuel. If still can not blow though line remove float and if need replace needle and seat.

Hi,
Just a suggestion O.K?
Carefully check the small fuel lines. To and from the bulb. Make sure the bulb fills with gas.( at least two thirds full. ) There is a small fuel filter on the end of a small fuel line in the tank. A small hook of stiff wire will dig that out. Good luck !!!!

No/Low Fuel Pressure after replacing in-tank fuel pump & filter


Need to have the fuel pressure checked at fuel rail to know for sure if there is a fuel pressure problem for sure. There may be a in line filter as well, you can also do a check of the pressure regulator by pulling the vacuum line off of it then try starting the car with it off and see if it runs, if it does the regulator is bad, but IF it doesnt run doesnt necessarly mean it is good, a lot of fuel filters have a bypass wich allows the gas to bypass the filter when it is full bad thing is the debris can then plug the injectors causing problems, or there could be a loss of signal to tell the injectors to give fuel to the cylinders from an electrical or a sensor failure. So it is best to test the pressure to know for sure if it is in the fuel line or the injectors if it is truly being starved of gas. hope this helps
