How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Gas Smell. Finally, because your carburetor and fuel injection system aren`t getting enough from the clogged air filter, you might smell gas. This is the fuel that hasn`t burned and is leaving your engine through the exhaust pipe.
A clogged fuel filter causes low fuel pressure that results in a lean fuel condition and engine misfire. This can result in poor fuel mileage, rough idling and possibly cause the check engine light to come on. Once that light is on, it`s time for a trip to the repair shop.
Strong Odors

If your vehicle`s exhaust emits strong fumes, it could be a sign of a dirty fuel filter. It could mean other damaging issues are at play, as well. Whatever the case, foul odors mean you should have a professional take a look as soon as possible.

When your air purifier`s pre-filter or filter surface (B indicated in above image) is dirty, or not cleaned regularly, it may cause a dusty odor or bad smell. You need to clean the pre-filter or filter surface once a month or when indicated by the appliance.
If it`s made of metal and isn`t too grimy, you can clean and reuse it. Before you start, relieve your fuel system`s pressure and disconnect your battery. Remove the filter from the fuel lines, then spray it with a solvent cleaner. Let it dry for an hour, then reinstall it, reconnect your battery, and run your engine.
Clogged filters can cause engines to “choke”, preventing fuel from powering the engine(s) and leaving vessels dead on the water. If replacement filters are not readily available, this simple filter change can derail any further plans you may have had on the water.
Baking soda, coffee grounds, laundry powder, vinegar, and cat litter are effective for gas odor removal. Don`t mix cleaners. And if all else fails, try a commercial odor removal product.
Bad fuel will have a darker or muddier appearance. It will also have a sour or disagreeable odor not typical of normal fuel. Some may even describe the gasoline as smelling spoiled. In all these cases, it is necessary to remove the bad fuel from the tank.
First, soak up the gas with old towels or clean rags as quickly as possible. Then use a mixture of equal parts baking soda, white vinegar and hot water to neutralize the odor. Rub it in and then wipe it away with a clean rag.
Odors. Mechanical air purifiers that can only filter particles cannot remove unpleasant odors at all. People therefore often use carbon filters to remove smells, though of course, they cannot remove all of them.
Dirty Filter

If your air filter is clogged, these contaminants can get sucked into the blower and cause it to overheat. This can also lead to dirt and dust reaching the heat exchanger and heating up. Both of these will cause a burning smell and can be mostly avoided by changing your filter regularly.

Symptoms of an Inefficient Fuel Injector

There are several symptoms that indicate an inefficient fuel injector: Strong gasoline smell. Significant decrease in fuel efficiency. Uneven idling of the engine.

A dirty cabin air filter can become a source of bad odors by trapping moisture and contaminants that promote bacterial growth. If your customer is complaining about a foul smell emanating from the interior of their car, it could be time for a “fresh” cabin air filter.
High fuel pressure results in a rich air-fuel ratio because the increase in pressure forces more fuel through the injectors than required producing increased emissions (HC`s) and black sooty exhaust. These excessive hydrocarbons overheat and damage the catalytic converter.
Once you have triggered the fuel pump, and you still have low or no fuel pressure, it could mean the fuel pressure regulator is leaking or stuck open. However, if the fuel pressure is high, it could mean the fuel pressure regulator is stuck closed.
It is also possible to smell fuel when turning on the air conditioning. This often indicates a gas leak. A gas leak should be repaired immediately. Your auto mechanic will identify the location of the leak and then repair it which should immediately eliminate the fuel smell.
A clogged air filter is a common reason why you may notice a burning smell. A clogged filter can lead to dust and dirt buildup on your system. When the dust burns off, you`ll get a burning smell (similar to what we mentioned earlier). A clogged air filter can also cause the blower motor to overheat.

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?

Have a craftsman 16″ chain saw 358.360260. Could not initially get it started after it had sat for a couple years with fuel stabilizer in it. When I went to use it the fuel had all evaporated and the fuel pick line was rotted. I replaced that with some difficulty but finally got it on. Saw still wouldn’t start. Replaced the fuel filter. Still wouldn’t start. Pulled the carb apart and cleaned and recleaned everything. Diaphragms were good and I didn’t adjust any of the mixture screws because as I said it ran fine before storage. Non of the carb passages were clogged. Fresh gas 40:1, good spark plug and good spark. Airfilter is good. Engine has maybe about 4 hours of total run time on it. It’s a ZAMA (?) carb. It will run for about 30 seconds when I manually prime it by pouring a small amount of fuel directly though the carb. When I was disassembling the carb the vent hose that goes back into the fuel tank seemed to have a small out of ?substance? in it which I cleaned out. It was right at the end the of the hose that goes back into the fuel tank and not up by the carb. It didn’t appear to be like your typical gummy deposits/varnish though. I hope it wasn?t some type of spongy check valve stuff that is supposed to be in there. That might explain some of my problems. Anyway, I also can not seem to get the primer bulb to fill. When I open the fuel tank, look in side and depress the primer bulb, air bubbles come out of the fuel filter. But when I let the bulb reexpand there’s no fuel that gets sucked up the hose. I can however seem to fill the primer bulb when the fuel tank is full and the chainsaw is laying on it?s pull cord side and the bulb is depressed a bunch of times. The saw will also start and run again for about 15 seconds then die. It’s definitely not getting/fuel and probably running out . Thanks.

I know this is a pretty old thread. But I have a 2004 Husqvarna 359 and it does the same thing. Has anyone found the cause of the problem yet. It seems to die from lack of fuel or too lean of a mixture only when the saw is hot. I have : removed the cylinder and found it to be scored very bad, i replaced the cylinder and piston, replaced the fuel filter, removed the carb and checked for debris, new spark plug, new air filter, changed fuel to a 32:1 just to see, all to no avail. I dont know how to test the ignition module, and I dont know if there is a way to test the cranck shaft seals. If any one can give me advise from here it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Brian in Spokane Wa.

Why is my sand pump filter not cycling pool water; the intake line along pool wall seems to be clogged.
ANSWER : I had this issue on a hayward. Bottom line, look at the secondary filter on the intake. I had a huge amount of leaves in there. When you open it up clean the basket and let the water flow for a minute. Also, back wash your filter.
