Customer Question

Problem with an engine starting ok, runs for about one minute then looses power and runs at a low speed. I have replaced the coil, carburetor and tried different spark plug and the engine continues to run the same.

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! How is the fuel supply from the tank to the carburetor? Sounds like the fuel tank screen may be plugged.?? I assume the fuel tank is venting.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 years ago.

Fuel shutoff or fuel filter may be plugged. Replace line from tank to carb, for test.
