Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. If your engine will run smoothly for a brief prriod, after you spray in starting fluid, this indicates that you still have a partially clogged jet, or fuel passage inside the body of your carburetor.
You can remove the fuel bowl from your carburetor. Use a small wire, and some carburetor cleaner in a can, to clean your main jet, and your fuel bowl. If this does not work for you, you will need to remove your carburetor, give it a more detailed cleaning. This includes total disassembly, and soaking.
You and I can continue from here. Thanks!
