My 1998 115 hp yamaha 6efl loses power after 30 minutes. also hard to crank. ECM advances spark for starting.replaced fuel lines. getting spark. what is problem


power loss after a period of running could be attributed to 2 things
no venting for the fuel tank
or ignition control module failing from a component failure from over heating
the first one you can check
the second will be checked at a service center for the engine
for safety sake take it in and have a proper diagnosis done and a quote

Engine starts. Why does it only run a few minutes, then stop?


a few things may cause this. it sounds like it is starving for fuel. the spark plug may be breaking down when it gets hot. try a new spark plug. if the fuel and fuel lines are in bad shape, old, soft or hard. the fuel don't smell right. fuel filter plugged up. the carburetor may need to be cleaned and a rebuild kit as they are cheap. if it is 30 years old. be sure the fuel lines, filter and carburetor are in good shape. hope this gives you an idea on where to start. good luck

Chainsaw wont stay running Runs 30sec to about 1 1/2 min seems to be starved for fuel


Initial carb setting is 1 full turn out on both low and high side and retry. If no difference, then turn the low side out and additional 1/4 to 1/2 turn CCW. If that makes no difference, then it's time for a carburetor rebuild.

Is a Victa Sunbeam 160 Special a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? Wondering what additive to use with fuel. Thanks so much for your help.


hi there tanyajames88

your victa is a 2 stroke vc160 these units sare stated to run 25:1 fuel / oil ratio

that is 40 mils of 2 stroke for every 1.0 litre of petrol that mix

so if mixing 2 litres - 1st put in 80 mils of good quality 2 stroke oil then put in 2 litres of petrol , give good shake and fill up your mower tank

2 stroke oil that you would use for sthil chainsaw would be ok its hi quality

you could use some fuel stabilizer additive to hekp stop mix from going stale too soon
if wish but most times just mix enoyugh mix to het job done , then mix more if need it

that way mix is always fresh

Engine was running fine and all of a sudden it started running slower until it died. It sounds like it is starving for fuel. Replaced the in line in-tank fuel filter with no effect. After it dies I will...


Check your fuel cap....try running your machine with the cap loose or off...you may have a clogged fuel tank vent... also check all the fuel lines to the carburetor to be sure none of them have degraded or have air leaks....also check your muffler to be sure it is not clogged ...hope this helps...;-D

Will not run under load, seems to be starving for fuel. When I leave it for a minute or two, I can start it and work with it for a minute or so then it sees to over rev before cutting out. If I start it...


Check the fuel filter in the tank for plugging. Check the fuel lines for kinks, rotting, or splits. Check the muffler and air cleaner for plugging. Make sure all the screws and mounting nuts are tight on the carburetor. When these things look ok, then turn the H needle jet CCW about 1/2 turn, start the engine and let it warm up. Open the throttle fully--the engine should be 4-stroking now. Proper adjustment is when the engine will 4-stroke, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. You may need to turn the H needle somewhat CW to achieve that condition. Hope this helps!

Victa 2 stroke starts OK then stops


After much mucking about, discovered that the washer on the fuel cap is missing. When the fuel cap is tightened it seals the fuel tank. Eventually the motor is starved.
It then starts and runs for progressively shorter periods.

Gas?!?!?4 hp 2 stroke mercury


Did you clean or replace the spark plug, since this problem started? If you used an excessive amount of oil, the plug may have been seriously fouled. Just a thought. Hope it helps.

Victa 2 stroke mower will not start


It may have a blown crankcase seal. How did you check the plug for spark?
you can remove the carbi and spray 2 stroke fuel directly into the chamber and try to start it.
If it starts you have a problem with the carbi or the fuel supply.
Take out the air filter as it may be blocked and restricting the air supply.
The float in the carbi may be full of fuel due to a hole in it or the fine fuel filter in the carbi may be blocked
