Customer Question
I replaced spark plug...

I replaced spark plug, the recycler 6.5 lawn mower, (Toro)wants to start, then it cuts off within (2-3) seconds after it starts. Essentially, it will not start and stay operational after it gives me the initial 2-3 seconds. I also put back n old spark p;ug and it did tje same thing..

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Yes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Maybe

CARB HAS A CLOGGED JET AND NEEDS TO BE CLEANED. THE CENTER JET IS CLOGGED OR PARTIALLY CLOGGED. SHOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE THE BOLT THAT HOLDS THE CARB BOWL ON AND CLEAN THE HOLES ON IT AND IF YOU HAVE A THIN WIRE OR BREAD TIE, USE IT TO RUN THROUGH THE FUEL JET IN THE BOLT. USE CARB CLEANER TO CLEAN
