Requires several times just to get started and then runs fine for about 5-minutes and cuts then cuts out on its own. Then have to wait for about 10-15 minutes to start again but still requires several times to get started.

The most likely problem is the ignition module. It is probably going out. when a bad ignition module gets hot from use, it stops working, which kills the lawn mower since there is no spark. Once it cools off it sometimes works. This can be a some what costly part, $60 - $80. You might want to take it to a lawnmower repair shop and have them check it out, since there are other issues that could be the cause to your problem. If you have a spark tester, you could test the ignition module to see if you get spark, both before you start the mower, and after it quits on you.

ive had this problem with my 03 grand am gt. all i have to do is turn key to not try to start it. if your security light is blinking sit and wait for it to stop. usually it will be about 1 minutes. then shut your car off wait 5 seconds and start your car. i have never had to do this more then 1 time during that incident.but some say they have had to do it a couple a times. the problem is in the passlock. the only way i figured it out was youtube. there are other ways to fix this but it requires cutting wires and splicing them and you wont ever have this again. ive had this happen to me at the most 5 times in the past year. goodluck hope this helps

Engine dies when hot fuel not pumped round the system kohler 18hp

If the engine has a black pump on the side of the engine it may be faulty, there is a diaphram inside, but the pump is non servicable, it takes a pulse from the cylinder head or rocker box, this pulses the diaphram, which then pumps the fuel, as there is no gravity feed from the tank, it requires the pump to fill the carb.

If the motor gets hot and cuts off and will not start for a period of time the problem would be the crank sensor. The sudden cut off and starting right back up can be due to dirty battery cable connections. Remove them from battery and clean all three of them with a wire brush and replace both bolts.

Car stalling out and bot starting after being driven for awhile.

mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.

2001 Buick Regal cuts off while driving at times also won't start

The ignition switch on that model is rated @ 50amps. When I was driving my 2001 Regal LS (at 120,000 miles) and used the turn signal, the engine would die, when I switched the turn signal off, the engine ran. So I replaced the ignition switch, and all is well.
