    I was goin' along fine and ran out of string. Went and restrung it. When I went to fire it back up... it made some god awful rattling & clanking sound, heavy vibrations and didn't want to stay running. It's coming from the engine... not the shaft. It's an Echo that I've had for about 5 years without any problems. Strange that this would happen without warning.

    What do you think? Sound familiar to anyone? Fix or new?

    Put in a new spark plug and see if that works...alot of our problems that we had were stemed from bad spark plugs from our dealer.
