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

Starving for fuel runs fine on starting fluid


Make sure gas tank and gas line isn't plugged. Also, make sure the gas itself is good, might have water in it.

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

How do i tell a victa 2 stroke from a 4 stroke?


two stroke mowers will have a picture of a oil can on the fuel cap,if it doesn't it is most likely a four stroke.
four stroke mowers will have a fuel cap and a oil cap as well.

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.

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

My lawn mower doesn't start


Hi Every 2 stoke engine needs three things to run:Fuel+oil/air mixture in correct proportions,compression and ignition.Remove the sparkplug and see if the spark appears when the piston in the cilinder is at top death point(almoust),if not check the flyweel key(not to be sheared).Check engine"s sealing(crankcase gasket,cilinder gasket,seals-crankshaft,carb gasket).Also the mufller(not to be clogged),disassembly the carb (check and clean it),fuel lines and fuel filter (check and clean them),gas cap tank vent(not to be clogged),the air filter.Please let me know. best regards savumihai71
