What does a dirty carburetor look like?
If your engine turns over or cranks, but doesn’t start, it could be due to a dirty carburetor. When there’s too much dirt in the carburetor, the required combination of air and fuel can’t travel through the passage to the engine, causing a turn over, but no catch or actual start. It’s running lean.

Which is better EFI or carburetor?
Warren Johnson: Properly tuned, carburetors make more peak power than EFI in a Pro Stock engine. EFI performs well over 2,000 rpm or more. On average, if optimized, both systems perform about the same as far as how fast you get down the track. However, the EFI system is much easier to tune than a carburetor.

The trimmer can sputter and stall if it isn’t getting enough fuel, and that can happen simply because the fuel filter is dirty. Fuel filters are inexpensive, and it’s more practical to replace a dirty one than it is to try to clean it. On most models, it’s in the gas tank or on the cap.
