Carb floods out engine stalls - Honda 8 HP Engine


... Honda 8 HP Engine

8hp honda engine on log splitter. costantly stalls as governor opens throttle to maintain rpm. engine starts to stumble then stalls. When revved with throttle acts similar. somewhat better when hot, somewhat better at half choke. have pulled carb and checked bowl, float, pulled main jet checked, blew carb out but no better. No dirt or gum in carb, looked new. all gaskets looked good. engine has low hours.

Honda 13.0 gas leaking from bowl on the bottom of carb. Engine was breathing hard and starting to send white smoke out of muffler prior to stalling. In a carburetor type car i would say the float was stuck open. This is a DeWalt 3300.


That would be the first thing I would look at would be grit in bowl stopping the float from moving freely or a hole in the float. Hope this helps. Thanks ... Dewalt 3800 PSI Pressure Washer

I have a Troybuilt pressure washer which has a Honda GC160 engine. The engine starts easily but quits after about a minute. One pull and it re-starts, then quits in a minute....... This goes on for as long as I want to keep re-starting it. Anyone know what it might be? I pulled the carb off and blew out all of the various ports I could find. I did not remove the carb adjustment screws as I have not had any luck getting them back in place during previous problems with other gas engines.

Honda GC 160 Engine, I had the carb replaced about 1 year ago, now its doing the same thing. At first it wouldnt start at all, I cleaned the carb, then it started would speed up and die. I then took the carb off and cleaned the jets, now it starts with the choke in the closed position only, at high speed it sputters and dies, but will I run it at med speed it runs but will die with tiller has a load, also when you put the choke to open it always dies. I dumped all the gas, and checked the fuel


This really sounds like a carb problem, good to hear that you are taking the carb all the way off and soaking it, this is the best way to clean a carb. I don't think it would be the fuel pump, they either work or they don't. I would check the governe ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Does a GX240 Honda carb have mixing adjustments? It floods after running for 2-3 minutes then fouls the plug and stops. Thanks, Mike in SC


No, the only adjustment on the carb is the high/low idle. Check your engine gaskets for leaks using either water or carb cleaner, preferably carb cleaner. Otherwise just replace the carb, it's around 60 dollars. ... Honda 8 HP Engine

I have a Husky 2600 PSI power washer with the Honda GCV160 engine that I can't get to start. It was okay when I purchased it from Home Depot last spring but now I've tried putting new gas in it, spraying carb cleaner, new spark plug, and it still won't start. I only ran it for about 30 minutes when I first purchased it. The guy at the service desk at Home Depot told me that the water hose should be attached and turned on while trying to start. Is this true or would this be starting the motor und


You can eliminate the motor by unbolting the pump from it and then if it will start the problem is with the pump or the unloading valve.If it does not start with the pump removed then you check for spark and get the carb cleaned or have a kit put in ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Honda Trash Pump Model WT30X Stalling - 8hp engine runs for approx 5 seconds that shuts down, restarts after I hear a relay click ? oil is fine - so I do not believe that it is an oil pressure sensor. Are there any other sensors ? Does water have to be pumping through it??


Their is an oil level sensor that lasts around 3 months of use. unplugging it would solve your problem But replacing it is a night mare. and if your oil runs out It's all over. if not the oil sensor, and your spark is constant Check your fuel system ... Honda 8 HP Engine

... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

The engine starts cold after 2 or three pulls, runs ok initially, but seems to have slightly less power. After a few minutes I can turn off the choke. When teh engine warms up and runs for about 15 minutes, there is a definite power decrease and the motor sounds like it will stall. If I paly with the choke, it does not stall, but has little power to pump water. If the engine does stall or it is turned off, it will not restart until it cools down.


I would first try draining the carb bowl, if you look at where the choke lever is and look below that you should see a clear red tube with a flat head screw below that, if you just turn the screw out the carb will drain. If you still have an issue yo ... Karcher G3025OH Pressure Washer

Honda GX390 stalling in go cart


I believe its the the oil sensor. The engines are equipped with a low oil sensor and when you go around turns, accelerate, decelerate, the oil will flow from side to side and throw the sensor off, causing the engine to shut off. Remember, this is bec ... Honda Pressure Washers
