Check your fuel filter if you have one.
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.

Ford probe 24v sport engine, starts ok cold, but after a few minutes warming up it cuts out, leave it for a few minutes and it starts and runs no problems, just the cutting out bit thats a problem


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Mostly this is caused by a failing coil pack. It is located on the side of the engine where the spark plug wires are attached. You will need to remove the cap to gain access to the coil pack. Once replaced you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

When starting from cold car runs ok for few seconds then hunts/missfire can cuts out.re starts ok but will do the same again ubtill you get a bit of heat into engine then its ok!


i advice you to change the spark plugs,this is cause because at cold start the engine needs a rich mixture in order to maintain a smooth idle,before driving the car,when starting from cold ,what you have to do is to accelerate up to 2000 rpm for 3 minutes then you drive it,then it should be ok

Hisense air conditioner


-If both compressor and fan motor starts and stop, thermostat is the defect.
- If only the compressor check for your outlet no sign of discoloration, check the voltage if normal, check the defective overload protector of the compressor it its external, or compressor itself is defective
