Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid 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.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year 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 need to seat the jet screws.
But before you seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

You still have an obstruction in one or more carb. Start it cold and start feeling for a cold exhaust pipe. (That will be the bad cylinder) Be careful as they get hot very fast.

Ryobi RLT30HT hard to start, won't tick over


Hi
On the rotochoke scale, between the run and half choke position there is a hole and in it there is a screw. This adjusts the idle. Turn clockwise to speed up, anticlockwise to slow down

Revs ''hunt'' on tickover, sometimes revs drop so low car cuts out


Thanks to some advice I have fixed the problem with my Granada. The pipe work from the exhaust manifold to the inlet manifold has a short piece of plastic pipe which needed replacing. This seems to have done the trick.

I would like to thank you for running this site. Without it I would still be re-starting my car each time I stop at a red light!

I have just had a maf sensor and throttle body put on my suzuki vitara 1997 2ltr petrol v6 engine as I had trouble with it jerking while driving.It still wont run properly it has no power to go up...


No power when going up hill could be a plugged catalytic converter or fuel filter. A bad ignition control module will act up when the engine gets hot and not energize the coils so they can provide spark to the spark plugs. There could also be a bad coil. The ticking could be a bad coil or spark plug wire that is shorting and arcing. If you take a spray bottle with some water and lightly mist the coils and spark plug wires with the engine running in the dark (outside at night) you will see the arcing. Autozone will test your ignition control module and coils for free.

Ticking noise


Hi Patricia,

When you drained the wrong oil, did you replace the oil filter too? It can retain a quart or more.

That ticking sound, when does it occur? Hot? Cold? Idle? Hi-rev?

What type of oil did you put in? If it was for only a short time, it shouldn't have caused a tick/knock.

Comment me back

Ford tick over problem


Hi there!

A few more things to check for you.-

A vacuum leak in any of the vacuum hoses will cause the ECU to make random guesses at what's going on.

Have you replaced plugs recently - or at all? This is probably the main cause - and certainly worth a try.

Fuel filter should be replaced at recommended intervals - about 3 years.

Clean your leads and HT gear really well with a degreasant. Any losses will be more noticable at tickover than high revs.

Lastly.........wear on cam lobes or timing belt.

Hope it's cheap for you!
Please spare a moment to rate as fixya! if any of this information proves useful. Thanks (I don't get paid for this)
