    Have an older Echo trimmer. Runs pretty well but when it is idling and you tilt it to the side it will shut off. I checked to be sure the fuel pickup was staying in the fuel and also checked for holes in the fuel line.
    Any ideas?

  2. Fuel Cap vent?
    Replace fuel cap for a few $, and pin holes in fuel lines hard to detect, but also low $ to replace.

    It could have an air leak, bad seal possibly.
