SOURCE: Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.

Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps

SOURCE: The engine runs and then stops after running.

I have a old 2010 Diesel did the same. It was the fuel return line from the pump to the fuel tank. It's a short ? 10" long line.
Replaced it, now it runs for ever.

You may simply need a new fuel cap,vacuum in the tank will rob your fuel and stall it engine,try taking off the fuel cap and see how it runs.If this does not help you may need a new fuel pump,which runs off of crank case pressure and should take over from the choke once the tractor has started.

SOURCE: Poulan riding mower starts and runs for a few

If you have already changed your fuel filter and spark plug, look at your fuel tank cap. The breathing holes may be clogged with dirt or debris preventing good fuel flow. I happened to spend $150 bucks for this $5 fix. Hope this helps.

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely


It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

Hi we have a Massey Ferguson Dyna 4 5465 and it was working this morning and then it died we started it up and it ran for about 1/2 a minute when we try starting it now we can hear the fuel pump runs for...


am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting

How do i fix my powerwasher


If it is electric it will stop every time you release the hand piece. If it is engine driven then check the throttle setting as it should unload the pump and go to idle.

Why is my 1533 massey running sluggish no power


If this is a diesel engine, you may need to have the injectors reset with an overhead or rack job. It could also be the injector pump.

Pentair whisperflo pump will not turn on


See if you can manually operate each pump. I suspect the problem is not with the pumps themselves. Track the control from the pumps to the motherboard, which I suspect. Whatever it is, it has all the pumps in common with it. Maybe just a simple control switch that is exposed to the elements.
