Stihl Leaf Blower, 2 years old, Sometimes the pull chord won’t pull other times it will pull extremely hard and jerky, then when you finally get it to pull normal is spits out gas from the muffler and will adventually start and run fine. This happens half the time I go to use it, any advice please, thanks Dave

I'll take a guess based on having seen this many times on this machine.  Pump diaphragm.  If you remove it and hold it up to the light you'll hopefully see a small line of holes in it.  If that's the case, then just change that pump diaphragm and you'll be good to go.
