2006 Mule 610 starts, idles, but no power

Recommended Posts

I have an underused '06 Mule 610 with 275 hours on it that has been sitting too much. It starts just fine and idles with no missing or stalling but, when I try to accelerate, even with no load on level ground, it stumbles and won't go unless I use the choke. I haven't tried to take it out for a run because I'm not sure it will come home under it's own power but it does seem to run OK with the choke fully closed. I changed the fuel filter and checked the air filter but nothing else yet.

Your main jet is plugged up. Run Sea Foam in it and it may clear up. If not remove the carb bowl and float needle valve and use a needle or straight pin and clear the main jet.

Sea Foam DID help but it did not completely solve the problem. The Mule would run after I cleaned the main jet but still had no power without the choke. I used the Sea Foam and it ran better but still needed the choke to run at low RPM's. I just got a call from the dealer I took it to and the carb had a part that needed replaced (in the float bowl?) and the 'pilot jet' needed cleaned. That service along with a belt replacement will cost $312.12. Thanks for the help. It did work but I had more problems than I knew.
