SOURCE: john deere 135s won't start


There are four reasons for fouled spark plugs, 1, You have a resticted air flow ( dirty air filter, or partially engaged choke), so the mixture is rich all the time fouling tghe plugs. 2, You have a poor quality fuel ( old, stale ), and it wont combust/burn hot enough, then fouling the plugs. 3, You might have a piston ring failure causing engine oil to be left on the cylinder wall instead of being wiped back down, and then burning as part of the combustion process. Thus burning and causingg a rich condition again, and fouling the plugs. Then finally number 4, low engine compression. This is again caused by worn cylinder walls and worn piston rings, causing compressed air/fuel mixture to leak past the rings into the crankcase, and when the fuel/air mixture is compressed then ignited, some of the air needed to ignite the fuel has escaped, and thus a rich condition again, fouling the plugs.

Determining which of the Four are causing you fouling is your next step.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a two year old John Deere D-130 Lawn Tractor that Will turn over but will not start it seems to be an ignition problem of some sort (NO fire to spark plugs

These Briggs has two diode in the coil ground leads.

Here is few things that can cause this problem.

  • Short to ground in the wiring
  • Both diodes are shorted.
  • 12v is somehow being applied to the coil circuit shorting the diodes and destroying the coil packs.
  • Bad ignition switch keeping the coil packs grounded.
Step 1:
Start testing by first disconnecting both coil packs ground wires. If the engine now starts and runs you at least the coil packs are okay. If doesn't then both coil packs are bad. In this case don't reconnect until you can verify that 12v isn't being applied momentarily when operating the ignition switch. Proceed to step if the engine now starts.

Step 2:
Then reconnect the ground wires and disconnect the engine that feeds the coil packs and the fuel shut shut off solenoid and retest.
If the engine starts and runs. Then reconnect the harness to shut the engine down. This would mean that there either a bad ignition switch or a short in the wiring on the mower side and not in the engine side.
If it doesn't start start now after starting previously replace the diodes in the wiring harness paying attention to proper orientation of the diodes or replace the harness.

John Deere won't start after sitting over winter. I hear the carburetor needs to be cleaned but I don't know where it is or where to start in the removal of it from the motor mount

because John Deere has used Onan, Kawasaki,Tecumseh,Briggs and Stratton one cylinder and two cylinder gas engines you will need to Give the Tractor model or engine information to get any help on this question .With that information it will be easy to get you pictures and video of this job.

What type of oil is used in an Intek 6.5 engine? Powers a log splitter, cold weather application.

30 weight, should hold about 2 qts. Use a synthetic oil, will flow a little better when cold than conventional.
