Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

Open Question

Toro 6.5 hp GTS Tecumseh engine model 20016 starts OK, runs OK for 10 - 20 seconds then behaves as if running out of fuel, then quits. Ample fuel, oil, new air filter. Ran fine last week with no issues. Only difference this time is I filled gas can with new fuel, put same new fuel in mower. 87 octane, 10% ethanol. Did not check cap vent. Any other possibilities to check?

You have a problem in the fuel system. First start by checking fuel lines,filter,vacum fuel pump.If this checks out,remove carb. and clean. Check for water and trash in bowl of carb. or tank. This sould solve your problem.

You have carburetor problems. Chances are the diaphragm needs to be changed and the carb. needs a good cleaning. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, let me know.

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

Mower machine, 6.5 hp , model 20016 , 22" high-wheel,. so question is :gasoline pass from carburetor through air filter,what i do?


Its quite common to see fuel in or around the air cleaner to carb casting. Side mounted carbs on Tecumseh and Briggs tend to spray a little back. If its running back then get someone to strip and clean the carb, its got some debris in it.

Why does my Toro GTS 6 hp lawnmower start then die?


Have you cleaned out the fuel jet ? if you have a fuel bowl on the bottom of your carb take it off and clean it out anbd look at the bolt that lolds the bowl on I could have little holes in it. This is the fuel jet and will not run if it is plugged.

Toro GTS 6.5 HP doesn't run well in grass. Any ideas?


Has the fuel filter been replaced lately? Also you can look to see if the new spark plugs are getting fouled out still. Sometimes just replacing the spark plugs wont fix the problem.

TORO Model 20016 6.5 hp GTS Engine pull cord is stuck and won't pull out more than 5 inches


Did you check under the deck for clogs? If its not clogged, DISCONNECT the spark plug wire, and try to turn the blade by hand... Oh yeah, did I mention DISCONNECT the sparkplug wire FIRST! If the blade won't budge, you might have a seized engine. If the blade does move, the problem is in the starter recoil. Rewind the starter string, and check the spring for damage. Good luck!

How to remove gas tank from toro 20016


Your Toro model 20016 came equipped with a Tecumseh engine. To remove the fuel tank, follow these steps:

1. Remove the fuel hose from the tank and drain any remaining gasoline into a container. If the gasoline is still good (fresh, clear) then save and reuse it. If the gas is not good (contaminated with water, old) then dispose of the fuel properly.

2.. Remove the upper red plastic engine cover. There are 4 screws with 1/4" hex heads holding the cover on. You will have to temporarily remove the oil cap to allow clearance.

3. The tank is held on with 2 screws and 2 clips. The screws will be obvious and on top. (some models the screws are the same as the cover screws). If necessary, remove the 2 screws. Tilt the tank away from the engine and pull upward. This will release the clips and allow the tank to be removed.

4. Reinstall in the reverse order.

Good luck!
