Saw starts runs good then when i start cutting it

Hi Jason:
Make and model might help but here's two ideas:
1) Remove muffler and clean it. They can get plugged up with carbon and the saw will run at low RPM but will quit because of excess back pressure when you try to rev it up.
2) Set the high and low speed carb settings. Start the saw then gradually increase engine speed until full throttle. Screw the hi-speed needle in slowly. If RPM immediately drops, back it out until Rpm increases, then starts to drop. Screw back in until peak rpm reached, then starts to drop. Back out to peak, then 1/3 turn more.
Set low speed so engine runs smoothly but chain does not turn.
Hope this helps.

Start up and die out

Controlled by water temperature, the engine has a "cold start sequence" which does the job of the old time choke. This setting makes the fuel more rich and the idle speed much faster until the engine warms up. Sometimes its the sensor which goes bad and only sends the wrong signal and other times the engine control computer gets the signal and does not make the adjustments.

The cheaper part is the water sensor. Some cars use 2 with 1 working the temperature gauge and the other working the engine controls.

The second possibility depends on whether this engine has a part called a Manifold runner. The manifold has 2 settings and this lets it change from one position for low rpm to the second position for high rpm. It will not run good with the wrong setting.

have you left the choke open ? this mixes more fuel to the engine upon starting but will stall it if left open too long . check your fuel filter too it may be full of debris.

My engine will start while the choke is on but it stalls out immediately after i cannot find the solution.

It sounds like the air fuel mixture screws are set too lean, which means that the engine is getting too much air not enough fuel. It runs with the choke on because the choke restricts the air that is allowed thru the carburetor. You will need to locate the two small adjustment screws. It will be much easier if you secure the saw in a vise of some sort making sure that the chain can move freely. With the engine running, slowly turn the air mixture screw clockwise and the engine should begin to die. At this point you will need to begin to open the choke because you are richening the mixture. Very small increments will make alot of difference so move a little at a time until it runs without the choke. Then make your adjustments to fine tune using both adjustments at low rpm and at high rpm.

Intermittent High Idle, Dies on cold starts, bad mileage

These cars are notorious for intake manifold leaks. This could also be a throttle position sensor. If you have a MIL (check engine light) I would scan it with an OBD II scanner and pull the relevent code off the scanner it will give us a much more accurate direction to proceed

Sputters & quits at proper RPM for engaging trans or mowing deck

If the choke has an adjustment point, then adjust the choke to a good overall working powerband. If it still doesn't act correctly, look for vacuum leaks. If it is an option, you may want to install a manually operated choke lever.
