Symptoms of a Dirty Carburetor
A dirty carburetor can lead to poor performance that may include rough idling, sluggish acceleration, stalling or backfiring. If you are experiencing any of these conditions, a dirty carburetor is one place to check. A dirty carburetor can lead to interruptions in the flow of gasoline, which causes poor performance problems.

Easy to Apply
Our carburetor cleaner comes in a convenient aerosol can. Simply aim and spray to apply the cleaner. Our formula will penetrate deeply to reach throughout the carburetor assembly.

Excellent General Purpose Cleaner
Our versatile cleaner works on carburetors in a variety of machines, including cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, lawnmowers, power washers and more.
