Dont spray starting fluid in there to start it has to have a gas oil mix for the piston to have lubrication it will scar or burn the piston and cylinder wall check the fuel lines to see if they need replaced and the fuel filter also the priming buld to for cracks etc.

Put a new carb on my stihl 400 backpack also a new fuel filter and air filter starts great and runs at full speed and then the rpms drop can bring back to full speed but will drop again no fun blowing


Lucy, the problem is that you have a blocked tank vent/ gas cap. Try just loosening the gas cap,just a crack not even one turn. You are bypassing the tank vent. Now start it and see if it runs longer with out boggind down.If this fixes it, you will need a new gas cap.

Leafblower shuts off


Yes. Your gas cap is clogged.Try this: The next time you run the blower, and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. It should start to run again, then you know that it is the gas cap.

Some engines are just hard to start, go to any auto parts store and buy a can of "Starting Fluid" spray a short burst near the air intake or near the carbuerator and it should start first pull.
