    Jato wont stay running!! Help!?

    my jato will start but stay running unless the easy start is turning the motor over. it was running fine until i put an aftermarket brake kit on but i dont see how this could affect the way the truck runs. i thought it was contaminated fuel but i put fresh fuel in but it still does the same thing. if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. thanks in advance

    How long after the last time you ran it did you run it again? Was it hours, days, months? And did you do any after run?

    The brake won't affect whether the engine runs or not, only whether the truck will roll or not. Try holding the truck off of the ground when starting. If it will run until you sit it on the ground, it's a broken clutch spring.

    You're running rich. Try turning it a half turn lean. And keep going. Until ur at 1 1/2 turns. The. Put it back because I'm wrong and you're running lean. Go up at that point.

    What does the whole concept "running rich" mean?

    Means you're getting more fuel(nitro/gas/etc) than air in the mixture. Can cause fouled plugs. The same with lean-more air than fuel.
