Customer Question

I have a Volvo Penta out drive. Just had it repaired.They cleaned carburetor and rebuilt it. Said it runs fine now. Not so! Could not keep it running. I could get it to crank & idle for 10 to 15 seconds & it would cut off. Then tried putting in gear & only it only ran for few seconds & cut off. Is there anything I can look for & fix without taking it back to shop that is 40 miles away?
