Sounds like you have trash in your carburetor

Check your fuel filter if you have one, normally they will be located in the fuel tank.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I 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.
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.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly 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 lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

flashing light most always means missfire.

but in the mean time make sure the firing order is correct.
good luck .gary

P0304 astra cylinder 4 missfire


Make sure all new spark plug setting are set right. I bought a set and the car still would not run right so we found two plugs had been dropped and had to be reset. After resetting the car ran good.

Random missfire


I hope you used AC Delco plugs. Make sure the spark plug gaps are correct. Also, make sure you torque the spark plugs to manufacturer's specification. This would be a good start. Scott

What cani do to fix the missfire


How often does it misfire? A slip in a timing belt/chain can cause missfires. Bad spark plugs as well.

The check engine light blinks and truck acts like it wants to stall out!


missfires are a common cause of both of your symptoms. Some things you can check are the plugs, condition of the ignition wires, condtion of the cap and rotor.

Scanning the computer will give you a trouble code which will help you narrow down the problem. For example when you scan the computer it may shoe a code P0302 which would indicate that the number 2 culinder has a misfire. You can then go right to the nuber two cylinder and check for spark, Check the condition of the spark plug , check for carbon tracking, etc.

I have a missfire code on the check engine light. 1997 honda prel


Find out which cylinder is missfiring by using an inductive timing light to check each plug wire for spark. If you find a dead wire you should replace the all the wires and spark plugs. If you don't find a dead wire check the distributor cap. You could have a broken contact or a crack which might cause a loss of spark at one cylinder.

Honda wires are much better than their aftermarket counterparts so don't skimp there.

I hope this helps. Good luck and be careful!

Put on analyzer number 4 cycliner is missfiring


Replace the spark plugs and wire set and add fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank for the next three fill up's. If money is tight try swapping the spark plug wire with another wire and see if the missfire moves, but before you do that inspect the spark plug's condition. Remove the spark plug to see if it's fouled with carbon which is a run rich condition and if there was detonation the plugs will have a worn or damaged electrode. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
