If the leak is coming from the bottom of the carburetor, try replacing the carburetor bowl gasket. Need help finding your model number? The float needle might not be shutting off the fuel.
Yes! If our technicians can locate the source of a fuel leak in your car`s tank, they can often weld or patch it shut. However, if the tank has a big rupture or is leaking due to rust and corrosion, repairing the fuel tank isn`t a smart or safe idea.
Motor Not Starting – Water may sink at the bottom of the fuel tank. Water is not fuel nor combustible, so the lawn mower won`t be starting at all. 2. Lack of Power and Acceleration – If your lawn mower does not perform as usual, you may be dealing with accumulated water in the fuel tank or carburettor.
If petrol is coming out of your primer bulb, this means that it is backing up in your carburettor and flowing out of the primer tube. The float-valve in your carburettor has most likely got stuck and just needs to be adjusted.
In modern vehicles, the most common causes for fuel leaks are the fuel lines and their fitting which may be damaged or crack due to normal wear and tear. Fuel tank leaks are also common since they can be damaged or begin to corrode.
If a leak is small enough, the gasoline may simply congeal on the tank and evaporate before a puddle can form. A leaking fuel line might drip onto other components under the hood or along the chassis. That`s why the smell of gasoline is often a better, more obvious indicator of a fuel leak than a visible puddle of gas.
The good news is that YES YOU CAN, repair a polypropylene gas tank.
On the other hand, it is better to use 100-200W sheet metal solder soldering. This is because the fuel tank has a thick iron plate, which requires a large wattage.
Using epoxy glue is the easiest way to seal a plastic fuel tank, but it sometimes fails after a short time. If using a plastic welder for the first time, practice before attempting to seal the plastic gas tank. The rental store should be able to work with you to ensure that you have no problems.
The symptoms that indicate a bad solenoid on a riding mower are difficulty starting the engine, engine stalls or shuts off suddenly, reduced engine power and performance. Moreover, it would also go through a decrease in fuel efficiency, and an unsteadiness in idling, lastly, the engine cranks but doesn`t start.
What causes fuel to leak into my engine oil? The fuel shut-off valve isn`t closed properly. Fuel float in the carburetor being stuck in the open position due to gumming (caused by stale fuel) or debris.

I have a husqvarna 323L string trimmer. I stored it after running the tank & carb dry for about two years. I fueled it, then started it, & it ran for a minute then died like I turned the switch off. Since it would not restart, I found the fuel filter had broken off the hardened fuel line & it sucked gummy crap out of the tank & into the carb. Failing at cleaning the carb, I finally put a new carb on it & replaced the pump, hoses & filter. It has ran good till this year. I winterized it with stabilizer & left it with a full tank over the winter. The gas in the tank was gone when I got ready to use it this year. I filled the tank with premix, checked for leaks, then started it. It would run fine for about half a tank, start idling poorly (lean) then cutoff & refuse to restart till I refilled the tank. I finally found the tank had cracks & was letting pressure out of the tank & apparently this was causing the carb to lose it’s ability to siphon gas out of the tank. So I replaced the tank which came with new hoses & a filter, which I properly installed to the carb. It cranked right up, but when it runs a half tank, the carb quits sucking gas out of the tank. When I pump to prime the carb, it moves the fuel into the carb, but the pump never gets hard like it does when I prime the carb when the motor is cold. I have to keep refilling the tank, prime, & then it starts & runs until the tank gets about half empty. The new fuel filter is down in the gas tank properly, but It will not run after it shuts off until I refill the tank & prime. I’m baffled. New tank, new hoses, new filter, new carb, & I can find no leaks in the fuel system. It runs strong. The 323L is a two-stroke & it always cranks on the second pull from cold on a full tank. Any ideas?
I have a 257 air injection husqvarna that is leaking gas out of the fuel tank
You might look for a fuel line that is cracked just as it enters the tank. The newer saws I have seen use a fuel line only as a seal, so if it is cracked or hard, it would not seal properly.
My 128LD is just about 1 yr. old. It has sat thru the winter with gas in the tank. This is the first time I’ve had it out this spring. When I push the primer bulb no gas is visible. Could the oil in the gas have separated and blocked the lines to the carb? They look clear. I’m having trouble trying to remove the lines. Can they be cleaned using a pipe cleaner or other small object or am I barking up the wrong tree?
Your right, what happemd when the fuel is left in for a while is, the petrol evaporates off leaving the oil gumming up everything. You can flush through with need fuel, but make sure you remove all the parts first and dont run the engine on the neat fuel.
