Hi please forgive the simple question. Is ther fuel in the tank? If there is the outlet of the tank could be blocked. Pull the fuel line off and turn fuel on you should see a steady flow if not remove tap and clean filter in tank. Otherwise check for kinked or damaged fuel lines. And drain the bowls on the carberator's. hope this helps Regards Jim...

Exmark lazer HP 19 Kawasaki 50" deck new PTO and new relays blades engage for 30 minutes then shut off engine on. After cooling will engage for 10 minutes then shut off

Engine valves need adjusting.
symptoms: starts ok, runs until engine reaches max temp loses power then stops. can't restart when hot. once restarted runs for a while stops again.

There is very little clerance in these valves and temperature alters the lenth by a few thou and the valve don't close fully losing compression, once cold the valves shrink back enough to create enough compression to start again.

Hello had bike for 4 weeks it runs beautiful for about 10 miles then just stops changed crank senser still the same stop for 2/3 mins then ok for a few miles back fires wot can I look for now thanks gary

Not knowing what kind of bike we are talking about makes this tough but I would check the voltage regulator/rectifier. I have seen these go bad where they heat up after a short time and you lose ignition. Once it cools down it will run until it heats back up.

My truck back fires in the mrng why

check the engine coolant temp sensor. this sensor regulates fuel until the engine warms up. if the sensor is telling the ECM that the engine is warm on start up then it leans the fuel control out.

Will run for about 5 mins then fan will stop

It is OK for them to stop, a lot of cars get the fans going as a default, then once the computer checks everything, the engine temp is still low, the fans will shut off, and come back on when needed. Keep an eye on the temp gauge, and notice that the fans will come on when you stop at a light. Or city driving, they should never come on when cruising. And a lot of times they will run after you shut the car off. Just till the temp drops. Hope this helps.

Trouble starting on warm starts sometimes.

This really sounds like a need to replace the intake gaskets. When the bike warms up the gaskets loose their seal leading to a lean condition that makes it almost impossible to start, until bike cools down. Gaskets are cheap, this would be my first place to begin. Hope this helps.

Doesnt want to start

possibly engine temp sensor. If the sensor is malfunctioning, it could be telling the engine management that the engine is hot, when infact its cold. This would cause the management system to lean the fuel mixture off, not giving it the rich mixture needed to start a cold engine. After a few turns, its built up a bit of fuel in the cylinders which richens it enough to get it running eventually. Any decent garage can put a computer on your car, and look at the live data. They will be able to see what the sensor is reading in relation to the engine actual temp.
