My 2001 GMC LB7,abruptly shut off...Will crank,but will not start


Check the oil first, the low oil sensor will disable the ignition if more than a quart low. Miles on this truck warrant a new fuel pump and fuel filter. GM fuel pumps, don't handle Methenol Fuel very well.(water).

What type of oil and gasoline do you nee d to run Craftsman 6.5 lawn mower?


generally all 4-cycle lawn mower engines are tuned to use regular unleaded gas ,(I personally use mid or high grade unleaded)....and for engine oil use strait 30 WT engine oil...... I often put a dash of fuel system cleaner in each gallon of lawn mower gas,it is not absolutely neccessary but seems to help moisture stay out of gas..(DO NOT USE HEET or other methenol based fuel additives for this can cause overheating or scoring of piston and cylinder...but rather use a petroleum based additive,this allows the small amounts of moisture in fuel to pass through the carbeurator without clogging filters or fuel system for smoother running)..also...if you put lawn mower up for winter it is always helpful to use a fuel stabilizer such as "STABIL" or other such products (follow directions for use) and be sure to change the crank case oil in the spring before using....this will give you much longer life from your lawn mower...
Keep air filter clean!!!..... Happy mowing!!!....so, the answer?...regular unleaded and 30wt engine oil...if you would like..they have special engine oil for 4-stroke engines at most hardware and walmarts n such...but is just expensive 30wt oil... Enjoy your day,Todd

1998 grown victoria started running rough after gasing up i went from mid grade to regular then the car runs rough and shaky idle will the c/o2 sensor cause this? sure could use some help


Computers in Cars now a days adjust the air/fuel mixture on their own for different types of gas used. I would put a bottle of dry gas in the tank. Use an isopropyl alcohol base, not methenol. It removes moisture, methenol doesn't. You can put in a fuel system cleaner too at the same time. You might also need to change the fuel filter. If the check engine light isn't on, the O2 sensor is ok. But if you don't get it running right the sensor might carbon up and eventually the cat. converter could load up and plug.
