EPA mileage figures are estimates, and seldom does it have anything to do with the real world, My new car is rated at 19 city and 28 hiway, it gets 22 MPG max. The only thing you can do is make sure the pressure in the tires is correct and run the recommened oil, keep the car in good running order.

SOURCE: will not start, has new

normally 1-1/2 turns on both jets should get you running, I would make sure your muffler screen is not plugged with carbon and also look at inside of cylinder while muffler is off and use flashlite and check you cylinder for up/down scratches/scores, does saw have compression ? also if you are getting gas,make sure it is fresh gas older than 4 wks, and if that does'nt do it you are probably looking at bad crank seals........Good Luck

Echo trimmer , new carb , good spark, cleand fuel filter, new fuel, new fuel lines, cleaned spark arrestor,primed and pull , no gas getting to the plug.compression test? What pulls the fuel? Intake?

Hi Ralph, Seems like the problem is where the float and needle meet, The float, needle and seat let the gas into the bottom of the carby and as the gas rises the float rises as well pushing the needle up into the seat slowing the gas flow into the bottom of the carby.... As the motor's using the gas in the bottom of the carby the float's lowering and the needle lowers as well allowing gas into the
carby, If the needle is stuck inside the seat then NO gas will be let into the bottom of the carby so check that by pushing up and down the float to see if the needle moves up and down if not just pull the needle down with your fingers.... OH AND YOU MIGHT NEED

Have an Echo backpack blower that has been difficult to start and found that the air filter is soaked with gasoline. Just letting the blower sit it is actually leaking gasoline from the air filter. What...

hi there

pauly 46 here sounds like tank breather and carby problems ?

have you checked that the muffler and ex port are not blocked ?

have you checked that the tank breather is working, and that the fuel pump diaphram is ok - no holes or damaged / stiff , and also that the metering diaphram and needle valve are ok and are not sticking open, or the lever setting is too high or the diaphram is just too stiff and holding the needle open

either way check tank breather and carby diaphrams , and needle valve and lever and the muffler and ex port for blockage

i assume compression and spark and timming and induction system are all ok
if its still hard to start and everything checks out as good might have a air leak

only way to know is to pressure and vac test crankcases

might pay to let your local shop do this because you need some special tools

but cover the basics 1st

cheers pauly46 hope it helps

SRM 2000a echo whipper snipper Not starting tried new spark plug and fuel.

Small engines have three systems. 1-ignition 2-compression 3-fuel
if you have spark at the plug and fuel gets to the engine the issue is in the engine compression system. I recommend pulling off the muffler and looking for scratches or scoring.
If you need to replace parts find a dealer like to assist.

1979 Yamaha TT500 old and rusty

-Take the spark plug out of it and squirt some oil down into the piston and let it sit for a week or so.
-Lubricate rusty components with wd-40.
-Take the carb off and clean well , buy a carb kit and replace the seals and gaskets as well as the needle and seat valve, this all come with the kit.
-Clean the fuel tank and check all lines for cracks.
-Check all the vacuum lines for cracks or collapsed line, replace if necessary.
-Clean all wiring connections throughly.
-Replace the spark plug with a new one, and change the oil in the crank.
This should give you a good indication if it will run or not.
Good luck.
