The grounding wire that grounds the engine frame to the negative side of the battery may have broken off where it connects to the block. You have to take the red metal shell off to get to it. You can easily check this with a piece of wire ( I used one wire from a set of jumper cables). Clip one end to the grounding lug on the side of the generator, and the other to a bolt on the engine block. See if it starts. If it does, you need to fix the grounding connection. I used one of the braided ground straps that you can get at an auto parts store.
The engine/generator assembly sits in there on rubber motor mounts, so it needs to have a way for the ignition to be grounded.

My husband was mowing with an Exmark Quest riding mower and ran over an extension cord. It stalled and won't start again.

The flywheel is locked to the crankshaft with a aluminium key. If the engine is abruptly stopped this soft aluminium key will shear off and let the flywheel turn.The shaft quits turning and the flywheel don't. This is to avoid breaking the crankshaft. When the flywheel turns or spins on the crankshaft it puts the spark timing out of time and will not run, it might backfire or spin and stop or just spin over.

LT133 lawn tractor starts then stops. no spark,has gas filter ok,cleaned safety cutoff switch under seat. mower starts up,runs for 20 sec then stops.

Does the engine start up every time right when it shuts off, or will the engine not start until it's cooled off? And when the engine is running for the 20 seconds........ does it give any indication that it is going to stall, or does it abruptly shuts off with no indication of stalling? Let me know and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.

I have a 15.5 HP, Craftman lawn tractor. I'm having problem with it staying running. It will run just find for 20-30 minutes and then stop abruptly. I have changed the spark plug, oil, cleaned the air...


Check the Blade Safety Switch. Also check if the Carburettor requires a good cleaning and overhaul or not. After that check if there is any air leak or air in the fuel line.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting

I have a 2000 chevy s-10 2.2 that stopped running while i was driving. nothing abrupt happened, it just stopped. ive changed te crankshaft position sensor, still not starting. im getting spark. fuel pump...

I would check the control module. Some parts stores can test them. The control module controls when the plugs fire. Usually mounted under the coil packs.

Van will not start

Running then suddenly and abruptly stopped with no spark = broken timing belt. The Camshaft is not turning due to the timing belt being broken so you will not have any spark.

My shuts off while driving

the car engine has a well know problem with the crank position sensor, if it is bad or the connection loose or incorrect, you will have this problem.
There are two reasons for engine shutting down. A: Electrical; spark plugs no longer getting spark and engine dies out abruptly. B: Gas starvation. This is usually because of gas pump or something which stops the gas from getting to the carburator/injector. Of course, this can be electrical, also, as the fuel pump may be an electric one and if the fuse for it goes out the pump stops working. In these cases the engine does not stop abruptly, but dies out as the gas in the line is used up.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
