Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

Car randomly wont turn on/bogs down and dies


Could be a bad engine ground connection. There should be a cable connected between the engine block and the frame. If this is loose, it could cause intermittent failure of your ignition and your starter to operate properly.

Starts with choke, disengage choke , runs a short while, then sounds bogged down & dies.


Could be a couple of things. First guess is the carburetor is bad. Because when the saw goes from the choke circuit to run it dies.

Chokes and Dies when cutting


Adjust the choke or carburetor. In case your chainsaw stalls when the engine is idling, ensure that the choke is set properly. To do so, first try releasing it to adjust it, and then move the plate and tighten all screws once again. To loosen any grit, spray carburetor cleaner spray on the choke's shaft. The carburetor may also need to be adjusted; consult your owner's manual which will guide you on resetting the idle mix screw.

I cannot take my choke off cold start or it will bog down.What can the problem


The choke regulates how much air gets to the pistons. There may not be enough fuel getting to the cylinders to fully burn all the air that gets to it when you turn the choke off. Therefore the cylinders do not make a complete cycle and it dies. So it would be a wise idea to check your fuel lines for plugs.

I have an old stihl 020 av chainsaw, the problem I'm having is when you start it and it's running the as soon as you go to give it gas it want to bog out and die even if you just try to give it alittle gas...


Look for your choke lever and make sure that it is operating properly. When the engine is choked, the butterfly valve in the engine is across the opening, causing the engine to take less air, and more fuel. As the engine begins to warm up, there is less need for the choke to be closed. If your choke valve is remaining closed, the engine will die when you pull the trigger.
