Jack's Service Tips

The most Common Problems seen in 4 stroke and 2-stroke engines are due to improper care of the engine:

  1. Never use stale or contaminated gasoline or an oil/gas mixture. Avoid getting dirt or water in the fuel tank. (keep it out of rain; the gas cap is vented and can take in water and check the air filter)
  2. Use the proper fuel: The Honda engines are made to run on unleaded gas. Use unleaded gasoline with a pump octane rating of 89 or higher. Premium gasoline has greater amounts of detergents and anti-oxidizing additives to keep the engines clean. This will reduce deposit build up on valves, spark arrestor, muffler and spark plugs. Poor gas will build-up varnish, gum and tar deposits on the piston surface and ring grooves shorten the life of the engine.
  3. Use only fuel approved containers. The additives in today’s fuels can cause other than approved containers to deteriorate and contaminate fuel that is otherwise okay. Once this contaminated fuel enters an engine it tends to cause the moving parts to stick together and possibly cause serious damage to the unit
  4. Don’t forget to run (exercise) your engine at least once a month. This lubricates the engine by circulating oil, it runs fresh gas through the carburetor and it works to recharge the battery (if you have a electric start.) All of these things help to insure that the engine will start when you need it.
  5. Use gas conditioner and drain out the fuel from the carburetor float and sediment cup if storing for more than 2 months.
  6. When transporting or storing the engine, be sure to turn the fuel valve OFF. If left on, gasoline may get into the engine crankcase and dilute the engine oil, thus reducing the lubrication properties of the oil and causing severe engine damage.
  7. Change and use appropriate recommended oils at recommended intervals. On a new engine it is vital to change the oil after the recommended running interval (see your operator's manual). Typically with most Honda engines it is after the first 20 hours of use, then it is after every 100 hours of use.
  8. In case of gas flooding (such as when you crank or run the engine too long in choke position): To clear a flooded engine close fuel supply valve, remove spark plug and rest it on top of cylinder head with ignition cable attached. Then with both the choke and throttle in the fully opened position, pull starter rope several times until excess fuel is exhausted. Before reinstalling spark plug, clean and dry.
  9. For 2-stroke engines & equipment, use mixing oil that meets or exceeds JASO/FC and ISO-LEGD standards set for2Stroke engines. JASO/FC and ISO-LEGD oil must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines.
  10. At the discretion of our mechanics and/or staff any examination or diagnosis over 5 minutes may be subject to a diagnostic fee.
