Locate the gold screw on carb which controls air/fuel mixture and turn it anti-clock wise quite a few turns
it's most likely set too high and is just allowing too much fuel through and flooding the engine completely, If you Turn it totally anti-clockwise and start and it won't start you can gradually turn it clockwise until it starts and continues to run without flooding.

Have a 2004 nissan altima plugs getting wet with gas take them out and dry car starts but same problem after 5 6 hrs won't start again what's the problem


Your engine is flooding with fuel which is why you have wet plugs and why you are having problems starting the car. A flooded engine will not start.

It sounds like a recurring flooding problem rather than a one off and the injectors may be leaking. One way or another too much fuel is being delivered by the injectors.

Get the car into Nissan Service and have them check it over and identify the cause.
Here is some information on the flooding problem prepared by a professional master mechanic.

How do i adjust my idle crew


The idle screw isn't as important as the low/high setting on the carb. Start with one turn out on both low and high side settings.

make sure your fuel is fresh and mix at 50:1
then remove the muffler and try to start it holding the throttle wide open... if it starts and runs fair suspect a flooded engine, plugged muffler
if not, suspect a carb adjustment issue and then a carb

McCulloch backpack leaf blower wont start and sprays gas out exhaust when trying to start


The machine is completly flooded, remove the spark plug, switch the ignition off, crank the engine until there is no further fuel spraying from the plug hole, leave for a few hours to dry out, replace a dry plug and try again with no choke and full throttle.

I have this exact blower and it doesn't seem to work anymore. It worked last week and when I try to start it up using the start up procedure it doesn't start. It has enough gas/mixture and is primed. I can...


Hi, this sounds like a wiring issue. If there is fuel supplied to the engine and the spark plug is good, you should be able to get it to fire. However if there is no spark due to a broken wire or faulty kill switch you will not receive a spark. Also, if you are certain that all systems are in order, you may have simply flooded the engine and the gas needs to evaporate from the various chambers. If it is flooded, you may also try starting in full throttle to compensate for the extra gas. This sometimes works. Good luck.

How do I adjust needle valves on a 25cc Homelite UT08111A Backpack leaf blower?


Set the lowend & highend needles to about 1 3/4 to 2 turns each. Choke the carb or prime it, until the carb is wet. Fire up the engine and let it warm up. Let's set the topend first since it's the easier of the two. Go to full throttle. Adjust the topend needle for peak RPM. Leave it wide open for about a minute to see if it changes any. Should the engine go lean, open the lowend needle slightly, if this dosen't work... you will have to adjust the needle valve inside the carb.( I will explain this later) If the topend runs OK, then slowly pull the throttle down until the engine begins to "four cycle" hold the throttle there. Adjust the lowend needle until the "four cycling" barely stops. Now lower the throttle more until it "four cycles" again, and adjust the lowend again. Keep doing this until you reach full idle. Now, from full idle begin to throttle up until the engine starts to bog or hesitate. Open up the lowend needle just enough to eliminate the bog or hesitation.

Unable to start my 155BT blower. Have changed


Is the new spark plug wet? If not, the machine is not getting fuel (fuel filter, carb, etc.) If the plug is wet, you may not be getting spark (bad ignition module, short in switch/harness, bad plug (yes it does happen with even new plugs)), or flooding due to incorrect starting procedure or clogged airfilter. Stale fuel can also cause an engine not to start as it lacks volatility. If in doubt, take it to your local dealer.

Gas is pooring out of the exhust


Needle valve in the carburetor is not stopping the flow of gas. It may need to be rebuilt. You also may have flooded the unit trying to start it.
I would have a shop do a compression test on the engine; it needs to be at least 100 psi to run.

HB-180 Leaf blower won't start


if its flooded then it surly wont fire,not a 2-stroke. are you over priming or is there a malfunction. remove plug,put plug not a tester in the end of lead,ground, and pull. spark should be purple and consistent. if red/yellow/intermitent. change he plug. if the engine is only flodding on its own then the needle and seat could be stuck open in the carb, gas tank vent in fuel cap plugged and building tank pressure, or fuel mixed too rich. let me know what you find
