Take the bowl off the carb and see if the float isn't sticking sounds like it is getting to much fuel.

Is there a screw setting on the carb? if so turn it to the left and this allows more fuel to make it run better. Turn a little at a time and you will hear the engine rev better.

Sounds like water in your carberator. Remove the bowl and check for dirt and water, drain some gas from the tank into a bowl and check for water in the gas. Remove air filter housing and lubrcate all of the carberator linking with a product such as WD-40. Reassemble everything and start again. While you are at it check the spark plug too.

Did you try cleaning the carburetor before installing it? It may have factory oils and greases that are obstructing fuel flow.

If it runs fine at idle but bogs down when reving, then you are either not getting enough air or not getting enough fuel.

Have you notices any black smoke from the exhaust when you try to rev it? If so then you are running too rich and aren't getting enough air. You may want to check the path of air travel for other restrictions.

Murray 4.5 hp Q lawn mower runs rough and smokes.


White smoke indicates that it is burning oil. The smoke would be black if it was running rich. So probably the rings will need to be replaced eventually. These mowers are prone to problems but the carbie is least likely to be the problem. So before you adjust the carbie take the cover off the top and give it a good clean and check that all the hoses are connected and are not cracked. Then make sure the airfilter is clean, blow it out with an air compessor or better still get a new one. Then try it out agian. If this doesn't help there is two screws on the carby marked L and H. Turn these only 1/8th of a turn at a time and note or make their current position. Start with the H scew with the mower at full revs. Turn anti clockwise untill you get max revs then turn it back a bit. Running too lean will over heat the motor and damage it. Then if needed adjust the L (or Low)screw. If you get black or grey smoke when you push the throttle up from idle to full its too rich so turn clockwise. If if slows before it picks up to full revs turn anti clockwise.

I have a toyota and my car is parked up for a few hours when i go


Does it run rough when stalling at 1000rpm or does it seem like the rev limiter is taking over (just revs and stope). If running and just stopping you man wanna have your ECU reflashed (common problem). If running rough you may have some other issues and need a diagnostic. Try going to your local auto parts store and having a code scan (its free) and see what codes if any are present.

Starts on first pull. Runs about 30 seconds and dies.


Found the air filters on both mowers were so saturated with oil there was not enough air getting to the carburetor. Cleaned the filters first with dishwasher detergent and hot water, dried them, then soaked them in aclcohol to remove more oil. Dried filters, installed on mowers, and both mowers now run fine.
