You probably have a dirty carburetor, the choke causes a vacuum and keeps the motor running, when you take the choke off there isn't enough vacuum in the fuel line to keep it running. a very common problem with todays ethenol fuel. have the carburetor cleaned completely and it should solve your problem.

After start it backfires, sputters then runs


Hi,when starting bike you put the chock on,remeber this is to make a richer mixture for cold start,so when you start the bike put put the choke off a little bit as it warms up,other wise wat you are doing is couseing it to floud,so again as the bike warms up put the choke off little bit at a time,all the best.

I have a 92 s10 blazer won't stay running I have replaced plugs wires distributor capcomputer moduleand nothing helped as soon as it warms up just a little bit it will start spitting and then die help...


Check the throttle position sensor. The fuel injector used for the choke is the only thing keeping the engine running. As soon as the engine warms up, the computer shuts off the injector causing the engine to starve.

Engine starts fine but lacks power until it warms up for 2 to 5 minutes. Carb is ok, replaced head gasket. Just started doing this


If it starts at completely cold to fine tune the high jet adjustment.first off the high speed jet should be initially set at 1 1/2 turns out from lightly bottomed all the way in. next when you do your prestart routine,choke all the way on,primer pumped two times,throttle set at the high speed position,ignition key on,fuel line turned on.(this is my prestartup for my 8hp tecumseh)yours may be slightly different.use whatever starts your machine the easiest! once my machine starts up i can almost immediately turn the choke completely off. i can do that because the high speed jet is opened enough or rich enough for the engine to run.if you adjust the high speed in it will lean the motor out(you found that to be true!) to where it will miss and backfire and eventually quit. start at 1 1/2 turns out and start the engine,once the engine starts if you take the choke off right away use what it does as a guide to high speed adjustment. if the engine quits turn the screw out 1/4 turn and so on.use the very first cold startup as the test for high speed mixture adjustment. at completely cold startup you have the jet adjusted correctly when the engine will sustain itself when you completely take the choke off very shortly after startup. let the amount of choke you need at cold start to keep the engine running be your guide.too lean and the engine will not stay running without the choke at all,too rich and the engine will not pull under extreme loads and will show signs of black soot out the exhaust. you want the jet adjusted so within 5 seconds of cold start the engine will stay running with no choke at all. find that needle setting ( don't ad any more!! ) and you'll be good to go.keep in mind the above is not optimum and is a little rich but you will like the way it starts,stays running,and overall performs as adjusted above.

My 97 grand prix idles fast when i start it, normally, if i let it run for a little bit, i can shut the engine off and restart it and it gets better...any ideas?


It runs fast because the choke and or high idle are set. This is normal, after it warms up, give it a little gas and let off, it should idle down.

Runs on choke a little


sounds like the carburetor has gummed up a bit, and may need adjustments - or, the fuel pickup in the tank has come loose [i.e.: deteriorated fuel lines] - also, make sure your gas mix is FRESH. if your gas mix is more than 2 months old, dump it

Blower does not stay running


Make sure you have the propper mix of gasoline and oil. If the fuel is old mix new fuel to proper ratio. Find your manual and find the low speed fuel adjustment and the high speed fuel adjustment on the engine. First, turn the screws in and count the turns so you know where you started. Return the screws to the origional position. Usually 2 to 2-1/2 turns are a good starting point if you get them messed up. If the engine runs with the choke on you have to open the high speed jet a bit, 1/4 turn CCW. Keep trying this and get the feel of the change in the engine performance. If you have too much fuel the engine will not get to peak RPM. The low speed jet works similar but you have to adjust it so the engine idles at a decent RPM. This should get you on the path.
