Honda Engine Repairs

Most Honda engine repairs are a direct case of improper maintenance.   When the Honda Engine won’t be used for extended periods of time, you should drain the fuel and let the machine run until all of the fuel in the tank has been used.  Then turn off the fuel valve off to avoid having problems with the float in the carburetor.  You should also make sure that you run Antifreeze  through the pump system so it doesn’t freeze and damage your pump!
