Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
It is very likely that your carburetor is at fault. First, check your air filter. If it is ok, then I suggest that you remove your carburetor and give it a really good cleaning.
