Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be happy to assist you. You and I need to determine if our problem is fuel related, or ignition related. The reason your starter is laboring, is likely because your battery voltage is probably dropping, as you attempt to start your engine.
If you have some carburetor cleaner in a can, or starting fluid, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor, to see if your engine will start up and run briefly.
This will help to determine what is likely causing our problem.
