The engine is starving for fuel. At this point I am assuming the spark plug is clean and not fouled, and the air intake cleaner is not clogged. The idle jet passage most likely has a blockage, preventing fuel from reaching the combustion chamber. Priming the engine while it is trying to run is forcing fuel to the engine instead of the fuel vaporizing and flowing to the engine.

    When you remove the carb, then the bowl. The underside of the carb with the bowl removed you will see a port that runs up to the carb itself, this is the jet passage. Is the spark plug ok and spark correctly when tested?

Toro mower won t start unless sprayed with starter fluid-then runs fine


The carb needs cleaning.. Has the mower been sitting for a period of time ? If so the gasoline evaporates and leaves a gummy "varnish" type residue in the carb.. Gumming up things and making them stick..

I have a Toro 1984-85 self propelled pull start lawn mower and I can get the fuel and air mixture just right it won?t stay started, it runs great but gets flooded now (I think), does anyone have the fix-it...


If the mower floods, it may be a float problem, if you have a carb with a float. New fuels can destroy older floats, dirt and gum can keep them from closing off the fuel supply. If you are comfortable taking your carb apart I would start there.
You will need the engine make and ID to get a manual.

My lawn mower will not stay started


You need to check the fuel line for cracks/breaks. Check the fuel filter if it has one. If these two things are o.k., then you will need to clean the carb. It probably has debris in it.
