You failed to use oil in mix for a 2 stroke engine. Engine seized up?

You might get lucky . Allow it cool down all the way.. Drain the fuel out.
Remove the spark plug and put several drops of straight oil in the cylinder.
Let the oil soak for a while 20 - 30 mins.. Pull on the starter to cycle the piston, watch for spray from open plug hole, put a towel over it first.
If you're lucky it will free up and run some more even with scored cylinder walls. Though the overall life of the engine will be shorter.
Put the plug back and correct fuel mix and try to fire it up. Good luck.

Does it turn over at all, if not try pulling the head cover off and giving the top of the piston a few raps with a piece of wood and a hammer. Hopefully you didnt sieze it up completely.

Why is my 2000 Toyota Echo misfiring on left turns ?


Sounds like you have a wire in the steering column that is shorting when you turn left but goes back to close to normal when you turn back to straight. Check the wiring harness coming out of the steering column.

Echo ppf-210 power pruner will not stay running? I have changed the plug, rebuilt the whole carb, new gas, etc. Still will not stay running? It will idle a small bit and as I pull the throttle I get no...


check the fuel filter to see if its dirty or not under fuel . also you will have to re-tune the carb . or check for compression in the engine it should be at 120 or above you may also want to change the plug

My Echo Blower Model: PB 755 T was working fine I stopped it to put more gas and now it won't start,


spray carb clean in the carb, just a shot with throttle all the way open then try starting, If it fires then you have a fuel problem,like maybe the filter in tank dirty or dirt made it to carb or needle valve is stuck in carb.

Echo backpack blower stops after 20 minutes


Make sure the fuel tank cap inlet valve is working properly, this will allow a vapor lock if it is not. Then check the fuel line in tank to make sure the pickup filter is not hung up in tank thereby allowing the fuel to get below the pickup. Also check the fuel line for holes. You can also try toro.com customer care, manuals and parts, type in model no. then get owners manual and see if in troubleshooting section it list this problem.
