Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. What brand is your engine. Do you have your model numbers?
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
The most common cause for this problem, is a flooding carburetor.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
The flooding could be caused by either a partially cracked float that is leaking, or sticking, or your needle valve is not properly seating.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
You could also have some sediments in your fuel bowl, that are lodging between your needle and seat. You and I can continue from here. Thanks!
