    You need to clean the float bowl on the carb. It sounds like it is partly gummed up. Check the fuel filters and fuel water filter to see if their clean. And don't burn the new regular gas. It breaks down fast and turns to garbage but also breaks down the fuel lines going to your engine. It causes little black particles to gum up the carb, filters and injectors. Buuutttt first make sure you actually opened your fuel vent on your gas tank.

SOURCE: turn the switch off motor keeps running

It sounds like there is a short in the alternator or wiring for alternator. You are continuing running with the battery cut off. But the outboard generates its own power and its finding the way to the ignition. As for grounding, you may be idling too high for a quick shut off.

SOURCE: poulan trimmer , will not stay running ?

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.) Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Sounds like it needs a fuel pump kit, and possibly also a carby kit.

take photos as you are pulling the fuel pump or carby apart, or get a service manual for the outboard. The dealer might photocopy the pages you need if you ask nicely.

If it has the little oval off/on button, it sounds like the control box or off/on button is bad. If you have access to the pump assembly, follow the pump power cord to the little black box (zip tied to a tube up high), this black box has a small cable that goes to the off/on button. unplug the pump from the box and plug the pump into the power outlet. it should run continuously. If it runs, you need a new control box or /offon button. Buy the off/on button first, as this button is prone to water getting into it, and costs less than the control box.

A 2000 Isuzu would have fuel injection not a carb, so no choke is used.
You would need to get the computer checked for trouble codes, I would suspect a huge vac leak is the cause of the fast idle.

Dryer won't stay running without holding down the start button


It may be the centrifugal switch on the motor. The push button starts the motor and as the motor spins up to speed the centrifugal switch closes to keep the motor running. Hope this helps.
