SOURCE: My McCulloch MB 290 runs for 5 minutes and then shuts down. Mix in the tank is 1 month old but is correct.

Could be several different things. Carry a can of carb cleaner with you and run it till it quits. Then remove the air box and try to start again, try using the choke, try a squirt of carb cleaner in the carb ( not at the same time ). If it tries to run then its a fuel issue or an air leak. If it wont run then its got low compression or a bad ignition.

Describe your Poulan/Weed Eater No. Te475 952711797 17" Le Gas Trimmer/Edger Problem Need gas to oil ratio for poulan prolink pp335 weed eater


I found the manual for this model weed eater, according to the manual the mixture...
and I quote "This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline
must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air cooled engine oil designed to be
mixed at a Ratio of 40:1 ...."
and I quote once more from the manual "Helpful Tip. To obtain
correct oil mix ration, pour 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle synthetic oil into one gallon of fresh gas."

Hope that helps,
If you like I can send the manual via email if you need it.

:) happy weed thrashing

I have a canon lawmower which is a two stroke engine and it is at least 20 years old so i have unfortunatley lost the manual over the years. It has recently ran out of oil so i have bought some more but it...


Serena you are all wet, literally. You mix oil and gas, not oil and water as they do not mix and will cause total failure of the engine.

You can buy little bottles of 2-stroke oil at auto parts stores and wal-mart and they will have written instructions right on the bottle as to how much gas to add to them. Generally one little bottle to 2 gallons or so of gas it is not critical, especially on a 20 year old engine. I use the same premix on chainsaws, hedge-trimmers, weed-eaters, etc.

Weedeater starts and immediately shuts off. I checked the fuel filter and replaced the plug the unit is 1 year old.


Change gas, and spray out carb passages. If you tampered with the mix screws then its a whole nother story!

Does 2 cycle oil get mixed with gas on McCulloch chainsaw or just put gas in?


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

My weedeater brand trimmer won't start


I believe you have the wrong GAS AND OIL MIXTURE. MOST WEED EATERS are a Ration of 90:1 or even less 75:1 For WEEDEATER I would use a 50:1 or if you choose 32:1 should work. Use a good 2-stroke oil. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER OIL> You see the more oil you use the harder it is to start. Don't forget to Pump the fuel Bulb on the side before trying to start it.About 3 x should do it. GOOD LUCK and it is and does effect me when their is death by a LOVED ONE. My prayers are with you! From Mddoc13 ( BOB)

What happens if you dont put oil in a weed ****? how do you fix it?


Well, all the craftsman weedwackers that I have seen all have to have oil/gas mix. The owners manual will tell you how it needs to be mixed. Most are 40:1 You ask how to fix it so I guess did you start it and did it lock up? Let me kow and we'll go from there. If you haven't started it don't.

Ryobi string trimmer 32.1 what do mix gas and oil or just gas?


Ryobi trimmers I have had use a 32:1 oil mix. Just pick up a little bottle of Ryobi 2-cycle oil and read it to see that it will give a 32:1 mix in a gallon of gas. Pour it into a gallon of gas, and maybe a little fuel stabilizer too, shake it up and you should be good for the season.
