Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
Engine starts no problem but will only run for between two and five minutes. Then the engine stops as if no petrol. The engine does restart but again will only run for a few minutes.
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

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.

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.
