My mountfield hp164 petrol mower starts but wont run smoothly even when the engine is warm it is constantly idling erratically

Check sparkplug ie remove and clean. Set gap normally 1mm. Check s/p lead has firm connection. Check manual for correct fuel requirements. Other wise take it to the mower repair shop. It's not worth your time to muck around with it. Too frustrating!

Low RPM's

I know this is an old post but I figure maybe my solution will be found by someone else doing a Google search and it can help them. Hopefully, you've gotten yours fixed in the 10+ months since you asked this.
Anyway, if you remove the top plastic shield from the mower (two screws hold it in place, plus a small cover near the air filter that needs to be removed) you will see a small spring that attaches to a tab at the front of the mower. If you bend that tab forward it will put more tension on the spring and increase the engine speed. You'll know if you are looking at the correct spring if you lightly press on the spring and the engine speed increases.
It is a good idea to monitor the adjustment with a tachometer. My owner's manual says the engine has a 3,100 max rpm. You don't want to set it above the specified rpm or you'll probably burn the motor up in a short time. I set mine at 3,060 rpm. It's hard to get it perfect but I figured slightly low is better than too high. Mine had been running at 2,800 rpm.
I bought a small engine tach on eBay for around $9. The wire wraps around the spark plug wire 4-5 times and then you can read the engine speed. It also keeps track of how many hours the engine has been running. I figure that will come in handy for oil change intervals so I permanently mounted it to the mower. It almost looks like it came that way from the factory. :-)
Here's the tach I bought: Hour Meter Tachometer 2 & 4 Stroke Small Engine

My YT model 28857 24hp engine Lawn Tractor runs rough and surges up and down when at idle. I just bought this tractor, 8-8-2011 Is there a carburetor adjustment to smooth out the engine idle? Will this...

The carburetor is most likely dirty and needs cleaned. Dirt can get in there from the gas can. Check the fuel tank. Is this a new mower? If not check the air filter, it will also cause this to occur if it is stopped up.

I hope this helps get you running again.

Rpm fluctuates idles high then low high then low

It could be the governor spring is weak. Get your model type and code numbers off the engine shroud and take them to your local small engine repair shop and get the new spring. It's not hard to replace. Install the new one and you should be up and running.

Briggs and stratton mower will start but will not run and when it does run it is very high idle

lots of things it could be........check the obvious first

1.....throttle butterfly to see if it had come out of the carburetor
2.....check static governor settings. to set rotate carb to wide open throttle, loosen governor arm and rotate it to the right, tighten jam nut, if it still runs away then you have a blown governor inside the mower
3..... check for unhooked springs and linkages
hope this helps and good luck the above 3 things to check is 90 percent of all my repairs in the shop when it comes to the engine running too fast

see ya!

Going dead atfer fuel system simple repair.

Try checking the carburator, spark plug/wire, idle setting, tightening all the hose connections, and, maybe check the manual's trouble shooting guide, and if you still have problem with your mower, try and find a good repair shop and have them diagnose the problem.

Hope this helps! :)

All you have to do is call 1-800-521-8559 and select U.S. then select the parts department, have your model number ready and ask them for a PDF of the owners user manual to be emailed to you, they will normally be sent in 1 hour for free.
