Hello Sniper!

Sounds like you need a carb cleaning and possibly a carb kit. Generally, you can get a base setting by turning both screws in until they lightly bottom out, then back out the low screw 1 to 1.5 turns, and the high screw out 2 to 2.5 turns.

Yep, start with that, then fine tune from there.
