Toro Mower wont stay running


The main reason why a mower starts up and then cuts off after a short period of time is because of poor air flow to the carburetor and is most likely a blockage somewhere.

First you should try this. Remove gas cap and filter then place a really thick rag over the top of the carb where the filter was and either blow into the gas tank or wrap a rag around a tapered air chuck and then place the air chuck in the gas tank (with rag fitting snug around chuck) blast it a few times and listen for bubbling, if it's bubbles then you have removed the blockage..
Take the carb off of the mower and clean the carb / jets with a thin piece of wire.
Be sure to clean the gas tank completely and the fuel line.
Check the oil level, some mowers have a low-level oil shut off.
Change the plug out with one thst is reccomended for your engine.
I wouldn't reccomend running the mower without the filter, that causes dirt and grass debri to enter the carb, fuel line and tank.

This should fix the problem, if it don't you should find a lawn mower repair service.

I hope this helps.

Control your OIL level in the honda engine ? take of (beware) for only a short moment your oil alert sensor control to know if the level is correct to reset the sensor and if the engine is running for a short time good connect it again on the working engine to reset. if the level was not correct.

Engine oil appears to be discharging through the air breather. Came on all of the sudden and seems to foul the breather within a short period of time. Rode about 20 miles and stopped within half an hour...


Check your oil level . If it is too high smell the oil to see if it is fouled with gas. If your carb needle sticks the carb may over flow filling the engine. When the engine is too full the breather blows the oil and gas into the air box. Another way to get gas in the oil is if the fuel petcock malfunctions and pours gas into the intake manifold. If the diaphragm of a vacuum petcock gets a hole in it , the engine may flood with gas. The gas flows into motor and past the rings. If you look under the engine in front of the rear wheel you may see a tube with a plug in it. Place a pan under the tube and pull the plug. It is a pollution tube for emptying the crud out of the bottom of the air box. Some Honda's used to fill there engines with gas randomly. If it happened you just changed the oil & air filter, and kept on driving. It just happened for no logical reason. So check your petcock and carbs for problems, change your oil and air filter, and always turn your petcock off when not riding.

Hate to state the obvious, but is the gas cap vent set to on while you are running it? Also, next time it starts to run poorly, loosen the cas cap. If it runs fine, replace the cap.

Chain saw run s for a short time and stops


The engine is unable to draw adequate fuel from the tank on a continuous basis, the filter may be clogged or there is an air leak in the fuel line between the fuel tank and the carburetor.
