Check your fuel filter. It could be clogged. If not, it will be a problem that will require removing the carburetor and cleaning the mesh fuel strainer. It will most likely be clogged with a fine sedement. The strainer can be removed using a very sharp pointed large needle. Place the needle against the edge of the strainer and lift out. Sometimes they can be difficult but persistance is the key.That and patience.

Wont stay running

You should only use choke until you get a turn over. After that, turn off choke and it should start right up.

My 302 Ford is catburated and is in my ranger, it starts awesome cold but when it gets hot it turns over and tries to start hard but it won't start. What is the problem?

Check your plug wires at the plug for spark. Most likely loosing spark. Could come from distributor, cap, rotor, plug wires or coil. If you no spare at the wires, see if it has spark from the coil. Please report back and we will go from there.

Automatic choke problem

93 mirage doesnt have a choke, it is fuel injected! What exactly do you mean by hard to start? Does it take longer than normal to start, does it initially crank slower than normal? You could try cycling the key before attempting to start it! By this i mean, thrn the key to RUN, wait a couple seconds, turn key to off, turn back to run, wait a couple seconds,, turn to off, then attempt to start! See what that does!

Hard to start how do the choke work

The choke is automatic. If the bike is having that much difficulty starting you need to have the bike serviced and the carburetor gone thru.

How to adjust the air/mixture screw on a 25-4cc RYOBI blower vacuum

I start with the screw about 1 1/2 turns out from fully seated (turned all the way in) but be careful when turning it all the way in not to turn it too hard as you can damage the end of the mixture screw. This should get you close enough to fine tune it.

check your carburatures. Sounds like they could use a tune up. Seems as if they are not getting enough fuel after it is warmed up, that is why it runs good when choked. Also check your air filter first.

Hard to start lawn tractor

I have 2009 lawn tractor that will not start (from day 1) unless I use a small squirt
of start fluid into the air cleaner area. Nothing else seems to work. The battery will run down before it starts. Once engine is warm it starts great. Love the tractor,
hate the starting problem. Elevation is not a problem in michigan.

Xr600r is hard starting when cold.

Your description makes it sound like it's running lean, not rich. A general setting for all pilot screws is one and a quarter to one and a half turns open.....not necessarily for that model. Do you turn on the choke when it's cold? Is the choke working correctly?
