    2000 Ford Mustang exhaust leak

    By tight fitting, I meant the amount of area for my fat arm to fit, btw. I may have not made that clear enough.

    2000 Ford Mustang exhaust leak

    It did not happen right away after plugs, but at least 3 weeks. She drives an hour one way for work, and puts quite a few miles on it in a week. I am 99% positive I threaded it correctly, using only my fingers until it seated. I am not positive of the correct terminology, but by getting my...

    2000 Ford Mustang exhaust leak

    2000 Ford Mustang V6 AT base model I want to start by stating that a few weeks ago I changed out the plugs, and with my fat hands and arms, it was a tight fit getting the two plugs nearest the firewall, especially on the passenger side. Everything seemed to run fine. Its the daughters car, and...

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    It is a stream. Every time I have taken the crab apart, the bowl is full. I had been placing the fuel line in a small bucket to catch the gas whenever I took the old carb apart (several times) and finally installed a cutoff valve. The bowl always fills up quickly when reinstalling and only...

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    I took everything off fuel system related. I took the tank out and cleaned it spotless. Installed a new grommet where the fitting comes out of the tank that attaches to the fuel line. That 90 degree fitting was cleaned, nothing inside, no screen or anything. Installed new fuel line, new filter...

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    Ok, had a few minutes to play with it. I took the gas cap off during everything below. Fuel cutoff solenoid works properly. Taking the muffler off and running, had no effect, still won't run past the initial startup. Blowing air through the carb. I am not sure how much gas I should see coming...

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    Thanks. I will have to check out my compressor to see how high the psi goes. I don't think it goes to 175psi.

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    Thanks for the replies. Keep in mind that I did clean and blow out the OEM carb 4-5 times with no improvement. Then, I bought a brand new carb, again with no improvement. I will blow air throught the carb to see if gas comes out . And spray gas through it. The fuel cutoff solenoid - on the OEM...

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    No fuel pump on this model. Not positive what the safety solenoid is. The float bowl pours gas out when I take it off. Did this on the original carb as well as the new carb. I will try the blowing air through and spritzing gas into the carb.

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    Left the cap off. I tried cranking it several times. No change. Cranks under choke only, runs for about 2-3 seconds, then dies. Doesn't matter if I adjust idle lever after cranking. If I adjust idle lever to the slowest setting after cranking, it runs about 5 seconds before dying.

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    I did not have time over the weekend. I went to try it a little while ago, and of course the battery is weak, lol. Charging up now.

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    I will definitely try to gas cap, thanks. Just weird that it can get enough gas to start but not continue to run. As far as the jet, I "thought" I cleaned it as well as it could be cleaned, with no improvement. Then, I bought and installed a brand new carb, with no change in it running, so I...

    Mower starts, but won't stay running

    Husqvrana YTH20K46 with the Kohler Courage 20HP. This mower will crank with choke engaged, but die 5 seconds later as if I turned the key off. It doesn't matter if I leave the choke on, or try to take it off choke. The only difference is if I take it from being choked, and move it to the...
