It sounds like the coil getting hot and breaking down. Check for bad grounds also.

Engine runs well for 40-60min then shuts down.


sometimes when a spark plug or the coil is going bad it will run till it gets hot then die. after it cools off it will start and run fine. till it gets hot again. replace the spark plug if that don't fix it you may want to start looking for a coil.

B&s 22hp engine won't start


Hi Charles:
I'd start by checking the spark plug condition and function.
Wet........... no spark
Dry............ no fuel
Check for spark anyway. Hot and blue.
Try priming carb with a squirt of gas.
Drain and flush carb. You may need to remove and thoroughly clean if gummed up.

My cr 80 won't start but it's popping like it won't s to replaced spark plug an couple over things please help me sum one


Hi Lennard:
Cars and trucks section but CR80 sounds like a motorcycle. right?
You need two basic things:
1) Spark - pull the spark plug, connect the lead, hold against the head, and spin it over. Spark shoulld be hot and blue.
2) Fuel - Drain tank and fill with fresh gas
Drain and flush carb
If it has a filter, make sure that fuel is flowing through it.
Try a "normal" start........... choke, kick over 5 times. If no start, remove plug and check for fuel in cylinder. Wet plug means no spark. Dry plug means no fuel.
If dry plug try priming the carb (give it a squirt of gas with choke off)
It should try to start.
To let me know how you're doing, reply as a comment on this post.
Cheers.

My 26 hp craftsman tractor stalls and won't start when it gets hot


being that would be a twin cylinder engine and has two sep coils does it missfire before it dies?does it have spark when it dies?does it sputter then die like it runs out of gas where the cap vent could be plugged and it vapor locks if you spark carb cleaner or starting fluid the solenoid on the bottom of the carb shutting off that should give you something to start with

Gets hot, sizes up.


Clean carb. Pull apart and soak in carb cleaner. Blow dry with air nozzle. Make sure air filter is clean and plenty of air. Make sure spark plug is not gapped wrong and running to hot. Make sure oil/fuel mixture is accurate

My 50cc mini bike starts then dies 5 secs after starting. why?


It sounds like you may have 2 problems

  • Bad gas
  • dpossible loose spark plug( bad compression)


Solution

dump out the gas put new in
Remove the spar plug and examine the plug if it is wet and black it is fouled
if it is white ad dry it is not getting gas

If you can replace the spark plug if not just clean it with a wire brush put back in and tighten

Finally make sure the spark plug wire is not lose

Best of luck to you
