So, here's the problem. I'll prime my weedeater, put full choke on, pull the cord a few times. Now, BEFORE, the engine never started with full choke. I would need to move it to half choke, pull the cord again, let it warm up for 30 seconds, then take the choke off. But now, the engine stays on with full choke on. When I try move the choke to half choke, it dies. The engine NEVER used to stay on when the choke was 100% on. It would "kind of" turn over a second, then die (as expected), and that was my cue to put it on half choke and start it.
What I did to try to fix the problem:
- I took the muffler off, cleaned it.
- I took the throttle body off, did what I could to clean it by shooting compressed air through it.
- Took off all the fuel hoses, and made sure they weren't clogged.
What I noticed before I did all of this was that the fuel bulb was hard to inflate back, when I pressed it. As if there was a clog or something. But, after I cleaned out the fuel hoses, I press the bulb (deflate it), and it almost instantly inflates again.
Any ideas what might be the problem? I can't keep the weedeater's engine on when the choke is not 100% on.
