Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.
does it idle at all ?
if you spray fuel in the carb does it stay running?
try keeping a gas soaked rag near and try that, we have to rule out a fuel issue problem, sounds to me though if it is running for 2 sec it just needs more fuel and to investigate the carb, is the carb new?
I would take that off and do a clean out and inspection of debris, they get junk in them clogging up the high and low ports, if you have compressed air use that with carb cleaner to get everything out, have you rebuilt a carb like this before?
ok good so you know the routine, let me know if that fixes it
What line are you talking about?
Yes they crack very easily and should be inspected as well as the fuel line and filter.
hows it going?
