* see “Guide to Using this Manual” Wrong fuel mix (too much engine oil in
the gasoline), a dirty air filter and
unfavorable running conditions (mostly
at part throttle etc.) affect the condition of
the spark plug. These factors cause

start or runs poorly at idling speed, first
check the spark plug.
Remove spark plug – see Starting /
Stopping the Engine.
: Clean dirty spark plug.
