Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
How long has it been since your engine last performed to your satisfaction?
How old is the gas you are using?
Based upon what we have covered, I am lead to believe your carburetor is at fault.
Yes you can, but before removing your carburetor, try a basic cleaning first, which only requires you to remove your fuel bowl.
You can remove your fuel bowl without removing your carburetor from your engine.
After you remove your fuel bowl, clean it and the bolt that secures your bowl to your carburetor. The bolt has three small holes in it. Use a small wire and some carburetor cleaner in a can, to clean the three holes.
Take a look at the images below. Thanks!
