Sounds like a carburetor problem. Yank it off, take it apart & clean if if you are up to it. If you are loking for a quicker fix, try adjusting it.

Ayuh,... You've got Crud in the fuel,.... A carb rebuild might do it, or it could be the tank, or lines...

You're not using last years gas in it are you? If so, dump it and put fresh gas in it. Replace the fuel filter while your at it.

I have a can of old gas and the gas in the snow blower is old so I will drain that and put new gas in. How do I get rid of old gas?

Put it in you cars tank and use it up. The old gas will be mixed in with the car gas and you won't have any issues.

The gas for the snow blower is mixed with oil. Would this hurt the car if I mixed them. I am only talking about 2 gallons.
