I've had the same problem since last tune up. 'H' at Exactrep sorted it. It is almost certainly plug caps. I changed tmine for NGK's and the fault stopped IMMEDIATELY. Apparently a well know solution for those in the know. My bike was also running rough at low revs. This appears to have been due to the previous service where they overtightened the clips that seal the hoses that connect to the carbs. Each of them had a split causing air to be pulled in. Change the caps first, see what happens. Pete...

Check and make sure that your choke cable is not bound. (make sure that it turns on and off properly) small engines need more fuel to start when cold and that is what the choke is for. if it is stuck open, the bike will start like a champ when cold but will not start when hot. check your spark plugs. if they are all charred and black thats a dead give away. if all that works then this problem might be due to ignition coil. check for spark when engine is hot and will not start.

Many times a problem like yours can be traced to a failing fuel pump. When it gets hot it binds and stops, later after it cools off it functions normally 'till it gets hot again. Next time is dies, immediately turn the key off, then to the run position and listen for the pump (humming in tank) if you don't hear it, likely that's the problem. Never buy parts without testing though. A pump alone can set you back over $200.!!!

Fridge runs good for 3 to 4 hours.then turns on but does not cool. i unpug for about an hour and then cools good for another 3 to 4 hours

Are you sure the compressor is turning back on. I would bet that you have a tecumseh compressor in your fridge and when they get hot they don't restart till they cool. The bearings in them go bad. We replace those with Embraco compressors. You unplug it and let it cool down and that is why it restarts.

1999 chevy malibu, stalls, no restart after getting to running temperture. fuel ok, cranks but misfires when hot. cools down and starts. runs good cold. crank sensors ok

Sounds to be a bad ignition module or one of the coil packs. Will need a scan tool to know what cylinder (s) are misfiring in order to narrow it down.
