    my mower was running fine, but then it just died and would not restart. I cleaned the filter, changed the gas, and drained the little bowl on the bottom. I found that there was water in the bowl so I took the gas tank off cleaned it dried it and let it sit for a day. I then put it all back together but it wont stay running, and sometimes I have to use starter fluid

Lawn mower keeps dying

Remove gas cap. If mower now runs without stalling, your problem is the vent in the gas cap is blocked. Replace the cap. Common problem!

Can't keep mower running without consistently pushing the primer.

It sounds like there is water in the gas. The only way to remedy this is to take the carb off of the gas tank and replace the diaphragm, there is a small reservoir between the tank and carb...clean with WD-40 to remove water

Champion Vantage 35 - mower will not keep running

More than likely the jet in the carb is somewhat clogged. Did this just happen after sitting for the winter? If so, start the mower and when it starts to die pump the primer to keep it running. Sometimes it will clean itself in a few minutes. If not, carb cleaner or take the carb bowl off and clean the jet.
Hope this helps
