Question about Poulan Garden
You need to half choke after the first pop and be sure to set the fast idle button if it isn't automatically set with the choke lever. Open the choke fully and don't 'bump' the throttle until the engine is warm enough to allow it. Make sure the primer bulb (if equipped) has been pumped enough to pull fresh fuel through the carburetor before start. Make sure to have fresh fuel mix in the tank and to thoroughly shake the container each time just before adding to the tank to prevent oil starvation. Hope this helps!

1. You will first want to check your fuel lines for cracks/breaks.
2. If they are o.k. then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure that the small screen in carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Check the gasket and diaphragm for breaksor wear. (NOTE): If your carburetor guts, (Carb. Kit), are more than 3 or 4 years old, you might want to replace them while you have it apart.
If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Check your fuel lines for cracks it may be sucking air ,also make sure the fuel filter is still attached since they like to come off in the tank and then dirt gets in the carb,if thats the case replace your fuel lines and filter ,replace with fresh fuel (correct mixture ratio is a must). You may want to take the carb apart and clean out the small internal screen it has and look for any cracks in the diaphrams.You should also check your exhaust to make sure its clear of carbon build up.I repair saws , trimmers and many other 2 strokes and find most of the time its bad fuel lines and carbon in the exhaust port,but also alot of times I find damaged pistons and scored cylinders with very little compression.Good luck to you.
