What is causing steam from my exhaust pipe and bike won't stay running?


It's probably dirt in the carbs and the steam is the un burnt fuel from a stuck needle valve in the carb

Crank engine a few times. If spark plug is dry carb needs dismantling and cleaning. Probably gummed up.

Poulan snowblower won't start; it backfires and sometimes starts but only lasts a few minutes if lucky; I've replaced spark plug and gas.....no luck


Gotta take the Bowl off the carburetor and see if the Jet is Plugged up.
Today's Ethanol gas ills carburetors. New gas wont help a gummed up carb from leftover old gas.

Check the exhaust isnt blocked, they contain a gauze which can degrade and cause problems with the exhaust gas flow.

Backfiring through throttle body on hot start up


Hi Anonymous, popping, coughing, spitting, or backfiring through the carburator is usually caused by air getting sucked in combustion chamber do bad intake seals leaking. Leaking exhaust gaskets can also be suspect. Remove air cleaner and backing plate, while engine is idling spray WD-40 or Brake Kleen around intake manifold to head area, if RPM's increase you have an intake leak and seals need to be replaced, also spark plugs will be burning whiter than normal. Good luck

I have a 95 Road King that isn't running right, it


Backfiring out of the exhaust is usually an ignition problem. Unburned fuel is getting into the exhaust system because it's not being ignited in the cylinder. When the engine fires on that cylinder again, it ignites the raw fuel in the exhaust causing the pop that people call a backfire. I'd investigate the ignition system. Connect a timing light to each of the spark plug wires if it has a single fire ignition or either of them if the ignition system is the stock dual fire. Start the engine and watch the timing light to tell if the engine is missing as the light will miss a flash.

Good Luck

Briggs and Stratton OHV V-Twin 24hp repetitive valve adjustment


Try pulling out the choke a little, if it stops backfiring the mixture is too lean, check the intake
pipes at the cyl head and also the plastic runners to the carb for leaks.

The tiller bogs down, loss of power.


I have had same problem. First time, I sent it out for fixing. They told me exhaust was clogged. They clean and it ran great. From then on, I started cleaning exhaust and intake myself. Also found manual online, which helped a lot. I've since then found out that the Mantis motors are similar (or a branch off) of Echo. So many parts are similar to their gas blower pack. Home Depot had a kit that had spark plug, air filter, and fuel filter in it all for ~$12. Had to tear off rubber from around air filter, but other than that had it running great in no time. I've also learned since finding the manual online, that the gear box should be checked/lubed each year, and also how to reseat motor on drive shaft, if slips off.

Good luck

Samurai backfire


It sounds more like a timing problem. If it backfires through the carb that means the intake valve is open when the spark plug fires. Same with the exaust but it the exhaust valve that is open.
