Honda Express - acting funny.

I'm fixing my girlfriends Express, and it's giving me a little trouble. It ran wonderfully for a while. It takes a long time to finally get it started, once it's started it makes it to the end of the driveway and kills. It keeps doing this, and it backfires all the time.

What could be the problem with this? I took the carb off today and gave it a thorough cleaning and inspected everything else.

Does it have points? Sounds like bad sparkplug or points corroded or slipped shut. don-ohio

Haven't checked if it has points - I haven't inspected its engine very much. I've replaced the spark plug like 3 times. Though, everytime I replace it, it runs much better.

I'll check the repair manual for points. What should I do about the spark plug?

you could be running too rich, and fouling the crap out of the sparl plugs.

Re: Honda Express - acting funny.

Would a fouled spark plug cause it to backfire and die?
