I have a 6200 Woods zero turn mower with a 20 hp Kohler Command. Runs anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes then shuts down. Put an electric fuel pump on it, no change. Good compression. Good spark.

Dear Doug,
There are three reasons you could get "run-on".
Probably you have one or both as your problem concerning the 5 - 20 minutes automatic shut off.
1) The timing is off, causing the engine to have a tiny bit of gasoline left over, which is just enough to give power to keep running.
2) The engine is getting too hot, which again causes it to keep on running after the key is shut off.
3) If the engine has a carburetor, the needle & seat could be dirty or sticking,or the float sticking, causing it too have too much gas, and that will keep it running.
God bless your efforts to fix this.

Runs good shut off for a few minutes restart runs terrible engine spits and sputters

A bad fuel pump may cause a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9l to run for a few minutes and just shut off without sputtering. It can also be that the fuel pressure regulator (on top of fuel pump assembly) is stopped up. Dodge Ram trucks have been named Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year three times.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Key out of the car the blower motor was on

There is a fan that comes on when the coolant is hot in the engine. When the engine is shut off the water pump shuts off as well. The ambiant temperature of the engine tells the fan to come on to cool the engine down. It will usually come on a minute or two after you shut off the engine, and then continue to run for two to six minutes-ish, and then shut back off. It isn't enough run time to deplete the batery much, and you should have no problems with it. It is just a normal part of the efficient cars that are made these days.
Most cars and trucks have two fan motors to regulate the temperature of the coolant. One is usually driven by the engines power and the other is electric.

1991 honda drivers side fan runs after engine shut off

If the engine is hot the electric fan will run until it is cool. As long as the engine isn't overheating and the fan doesn't run for more than 10 minutes or so it should be ok. If it has two radiator fans they should both be running though.

1995 Ford Thuderbird

Depending on which type of carburetta this car has, it may be that the rubber diaphram has a tiny pinprick of a hole in it. This will affect the vacumn and the fuel control. An easy way to test this is to allow the car to rest without the engine running for a few minutes, start the engine an increase the power whilst at a standstill and see how long it takes before the engine shuts down, then let it rest again for a few minutes, start the engine and let it run just on tick over, if it carries on running for a much longer period than before then you may have the answer.
Hope this helps Bomber667

Get those right, it will work!

It could be one of many things. Might have a sheared flywheel key, bad carb, bad ignition wires, points, etc.
