Question about Honda 8 HP Engine

1 Answer

Gx240 honda engine starts fine, but coughs and sputters with heavy exhaust; then it runs smoothly for 2 to 3 seconds and then shuts itself off. I checked and there is plenty of gas and the correct amount of oil in the engine.

Sounds like it could do with a cleanout of the carburettor. Also check for dirt/rust in fuel tank that could be restricting fuel flow to carby.

Engine keeps running after key is off


Could be what is called "dieseling" where it sounds like a diesel truck.
Possible causes are a heavy carbon buildup in the cylinders, or the idle speed could be too high.

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.


Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

You have a slightly gummed up carb. I would get a can of carb. cleaner that you add to the fuel and hope that running that through the carb in a couple of tanks of gas will solve your problem.

I just had my muffler/exhaust system changed at a garage. Before I brought the car in it was loud, but otherwise ran fine. Since I picked my car up I have noticed that now it struggles to reach cruising...


first of all , i would say check your oil pressure.second i would take a look at your oil pan and the screw that holds it together.because some times they put them on too tight scripping them,that can make it do most of the things you described above.or if its not tight enough,it could do the same. i hope i was helpful in some way. good luck
