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.

Spark plug is new & cleaned carborater it ran for about 2-3 sec & quit.It acts like it isn't pulling gas. This type lawnmower has plastic carborater and doesn't have a diaphragm.Any suggestions?


If you can find the fuel jet take it out and clean it. If there is dirt in the jets there will be no gas get to the carb. I blow mine out with an air line from an air compressor. or get a real fine wire and put through the holes. don't injure the jet or it won't work.

Truck will run only when i pour gas into carborater once it uses gas in carborater it stops firing


This sounds like a problem with the fuel pump. I would suggest that you check the fuel pressure. it should be 60psi. If not...fuel pump most likely the problem.
