Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
good afternoon david my name is ***** ***** wouldn't say the fuel pump is the issue only because it runs so well at high idle. normally that's when they fail. sounds to me like the govenour is "hunting" because of an improper fuel air mix. do you use high octane gas without ethenal? if not definatly switch to that. ethanol is very hard on the small engine fuel systems and tends to "gum" up the carb. a cheap thing to try first is adding in an additive called sea foam and run the machine for a while. see if that doesn't help clean out the carb and get it running correctly again
no problem and SMART MAN!
if that doesn't clear up the problem I we can move on to the next steps
any luck with the additive?
can I assist any farther on this or can I close out the case?
