Check the fuel pump pressure by first disconnecting the spark plug wire, then disconnect the fuel line going from the carbureter to the fuel pump at the carbureter side, then run the starter. Fuel should spurt out in a strong stream. If it does not, replace the fuel pump. Also make sure that your air filter is not plugged.

Lincoln ranger 8 and kohler engine command 20. engine does not pull gas to carburetor. Putting little gas directly in carburetor; machine runs until finish gasoline inside carburator.

engines don't "pull" fuel to carb , it either gravity flows (tank over top carb) there or its pumped there , I do believe the kohler engines from 8 hp thru 25 hp use a vacuum activated fuel pump (three hoses on it) these do go bad over time and need replaced , also there are fuel filters on all these engines that need to be replaced seasonally they are not cleanable there disposable

Not getting fuel, will run if gas is supplied by pouring into carb. how can I troubleshoot fuel pump?

Disconnect the fuel line from the carb and turn on. If no fuel comes out of the hose, the pump is bad.

My miller 225 has a kohler engine wont start fuel is getting to the carb float is not stuck carb was not dirty but cleaned it has a soeloid valve and it is getting 12 volts now it will start pouring

Will it start if you put a little gas in the carb before cranking? if it fires then, sounds like a stuck fuel shut off valve, located on bowl. one wire going to it.

Car will not run unless gas in carb

Sounds like the fuel pump is bad. The engine is just not getting fuel unless you pour it in the carb.

1998 1500 will not start unless I pour a little gas in the carb. When I stop the engine after running a while it will not start again unless I pour gas into carb again. Any ideas?

It is your fuel pump or fuel filter. When you turn your key on, you should hear a buzzing sound for a second or two. If you don't hear it, thats what it probably is. If you have a fuel pump relay or fuse, check that first. If the pump kicks on, check the filter. One of these is your solution my friend.

20 hp kohler leaking gas out front right side of motor

Check all your fuel hoses make sure they are not broken or any holes are in the lines themselves. Also clean out the Carb and all the ports leading to the engine with some carb cleaner. If you still have raw fuel leaking then you are going to have to replace the top gasket on the motor where your cylinders are located.

Try to start mower and turns over but wont start unless you pour gas in carb then it will start and run fine. 1648s scotts mower with a kohler motor.

Does it continue to run after you start it by pouring gas into the carburetor or does it die again?

If it continues to run, it sounds like your choke is not working. Probably disconnected -- check linkage.
