Other than the throttle sticking there may be a couple things:
The idle screw is mal-adjusted.
There is an air leak where the carburetor meets the block.
The governor spring has bound or streched (depending on type) affecting the RPM.

1988 Suburban with 5.7 TBI runs fine until warms up. Goes to fast idle and when it comes off fast idles won't start back until cools down.


Lets start at the beginning. Is the check engine light on ?
You have an idle air control valve which could be sticking open or shorted to ground. You should be able to unplug it to test. There also could be a gasket or hose that is opening up and causing a huge vac leak.

Could be some internal carb problems. Especially if the carb is original, or if it is a rebuilt off the shelf. The internal parts can get old and stop working, such as the accelerator pump.

can it be driven? with full power.
your car has no year? and if working engine,? what engine? option
ever get a 60,000 mile tune up this decade? (just old spark plugs do this)
you start the cold engine/
can you keep it running, with a fast right foot action?

My husqvarna 128ld starts and idles fast but only with the choke half on. Give it gas or take the choke off and it dies.


Possibly a fuel starvation issue, incorrect fuel air mix or an air leak within the fuel system

IDLES FAST WHEN STARTED, FOR 5 MINUTES THEN DROPS


It's the choke doing tis job. It reduces the amount of air to the engine to help it start/warm up. As the engine reaches a good operating temp it will drop the RPM's. Some times they do get stuck, so some cleaner wouldn't hurt. Spray it into the throttle body while the engine is running. Also the O2 sensor could be bad.

Even with a rebuilt carb you have to make the adjustments. Check the choke adjustment and set the fast idle. If choke is to tight it will be hard to start and take a long time to idle down. The fast idle sounds like it is high also.

Husqvarna chain saw works great until its shut off then it wont start again


A couple of suggestions:

How old is the gas in the tank? If it has sat for a year in the tank or the can, the gas won't burn as easily because of octane breakdown. Mix in newly bought gas (with oil of course).

Pull the spark plug(s) and check the spark gap referring to your manual. If the gap is too wide, you'll have a hard time starting it.
It's also a good idea to check how dirty your spark plugs are, and clean if necessary.

Depending on the age of the saw, if it's 35 years old or more, you may have to put less 2-cycle oil into your mix. The ratio has changed for all 2 cycle engines if they're approximately 35 years or older. Instead of 30 to 1 it's now 50 to 1.

PVC valve is not metering air correctly, it will appear ok shaking it but looses it ability to maintain proper position causing a medium to gross vacuum leak.
