The choke isnt rattling its way back to cold start position is it? Had the same problem but with my backpack blower. Keep an eye on the choke while its on the ground. Also, check the priming pump, that little button you push to prime it, make sure there isnt a leak coming from there.

1987 corvette with 26000 mile always garage kept from birth. Start once a week always starts inless than half a crank. But after ran down road for while and shut off takes 5-7 revolutions to fire. Almost...

Thee new fuels today go bad after around 3 weeks because of the ethonol content. Put a can of Sea Foam in the gas tank see if that helps clean it out. Best bet is to drain the tank put new fuel in it with a can of Sea Foam, then give it a good long run until the tank is empty. Re fill the tank and put the correct amount of Stabil in the with the gas, this will stop the gas from turning into sugar and it works for years.
Good luck

2002 trailblazer lack of engine power light

I am willing to bet a lot that there is a bad ground from the battery to the chassis of the vehicle. In addition to the ground wire that goes to the engine block, there should be another wire from the battery negative terminal to the sheet metal of the car. Bet is it corroded or loose. If you cannot find this wire it might be because the MFG ran a wire from the engine to the sheet metal somewhere around the back of the engine. You can run another wire frokm the Batt- term to the sheet metal. Maybe put one terminal under some accessory that screws to the sheet metal.

Good luck
