Hi there,
When was the last time you checked your fuel filter in the gas tank.It's on the end of a flexible tube and you can get it out with a piece of stiff wire.Bend a hook in one end file the sharp end of hook and snag the tube out and replace with a new filter.Might as well clean the gas tank out while your at it.First use a rag to clean around the gas cap ,open cap and drain gas back into your gas can.Next get a pack of BB's and pore them in the tank(count them)and close the cap.Shake the saw to knock any crape loose.Empty the BB's out and count them.Add some cleaner for chainsaw gas tanks which is available at hardware stores and auto parts store add new fuel.Thank You for choosing FixYa.com

Carb settings for Stihl FS160


Here's a link to your owner's manual,look at page 26 for carburetor adjustments,I have 3 stihl's,a blower,weedeater and chain saw,had them a long time,never had to adjust the carb.What problems are you having?Clean your air filter or replace it if's real dirty and can't get clean,use 50;1 regular unleaded gas and oil mixture,put a new plug in it,same as you were using,Autozone has them cheaper than the Stihl dealer.Are you using your choke and throttle correctly when starting?On mine,I set the throttle,lock it in,put choke on close,pull a few times,no more than 5,then open choke and pull,it should start,is your spark plug getting oil-gas on it,if so then your flooding it at start up,use fresh gas mixture.I wouldn't adjust the carb. https://www.stihlusa.com/WebContent/CMSFileLibrary/instructionmanuals/FS160_180_Manual.pdf

Why does my Stihl FS 46 Weedeater run only when choke is in half-way position.


Fuel/air mixture adjustment screw may be set too lean.

I replaced a coil on a stihl weedeater, fs 55 rc, and am having a problem with flooding. also I need the gap spec for the coil/mag


put a piece of paper between coil and magneto magnets, then tighten down. Just so it is not scraping or hitting when you pull it past the magnets . The flooding is because your possibly leaving the choke on to long . Only pull it a couple times, when choke is on. Then turn to half choke.

Can't start new stihl weedeater fs 45


The Stihl FS45 has a particular way of getting started as do all the stihl products. We sell Stihl equipment in our store and service and repair them also. The normal starting procedure is to:
Be sure the switch is turned to the ON position which is the negitive sign (-). The (O) is the off position.
Press the primer bulb 3 times.
Move the choke lever to on.
Pull the starter cord three times only. If the engine fires, turn the choke to the off position and pull till it starts.
If the engine did not try to start during the first three pulls with the choke on, you must turn the choke off and pull till it starts.
Remember:Pulling more than three times with the choke switch on will flood the carburator on every stihl product thats on the market.
However, if the units still refuses to start, being its new and still under warrenty, return it to the repair shop that services Stihl products and they will repair it according to warrenty. All parts and labor should be honored at no cost to you. Please provide your receipt and serial number located on a silver tag located on the unit or the mechanic will get it off the unit when he works on it. Either way, it will most likely have to have a new carburator put on it. I hope this helps. Please comment back if this was helpful. Thanks; George

Stihl weedeater starts but won't run at high speed


This sounds like a timing problem.
It is too far retarded, and needs advancing a couple of thou.
There you go:)
