Question about Cub Cadet Garden

Turns over but won't start

Was mowing and engine stopped (was running a little rough from the start of mowing). We've changed spark plug and fuse, and checked to be sure fuel is flowing as it should. We checked to see if it is sparking, and it doesn't seem to be. Now what? Thank you!

Hello Marsha, 3 things needed for an engine to run are; compression, spark and fuel. You said you checked spark and you have none. Did you check with spark tester or by grounding the plug to engine block? If you don't have any spark check fuses and wiring to make sure all is good. Then if you have a multimeter you will have to check coil for resistance. If your not sure you should take to a qualified technician. Hope this helps. Good luck!

02 mitsubishi lancer oz rally automatic and when I turned it off the engine sputtered a little so I turned it back on started up back fine and shut it off and it sputter again Its neverdone thisHelp?


I think what you are describing may be "run on" or Dieseling" which is a way of saying that an ngine with spark plugs that should stop when the key is turned off, continues to run in a rough manner. This is typically caused by glowing carbon in the cylinder, often on the head next to a fouled spark plug tip.
I would recommend changing the spark plugs and spending the $ for some "tune up in a can" that removes carbon deposits from inside the cylinders.
Hope this helps.

Zafira 1.8 petrol 03 runs rough for 30/50 seconds when started then ok but a little sluggish


The "won't rev" part sounds like a preventative so you won't destroy the engine from cold start-up. The sluggish part sounds like bad fuel or spark plugs. Where do you buy your fuel and what octane is it? and have you Changed your plugs?

Kawasaki 17hp fh500v won't start.


Did you try to use a little starting fluid to get it going. If you did and it would not fire, then you have no spark at the plug. If you did and it did fire, then you have no gas getting to the carb.

1997 mazda 626 won't start.


Are the plugs wet with fuel?
Check for spark. No spark? it may be the ignition module.

Plugs dry and spark present? No fuel?Spray a little starting fluid and see if it will run on that.
Then check pump fuses and for fuel pump noise.

The trouble you are experiencing could result from several different things. First, check the oil when the engine is cold and completely settled in the sump. You do not want to overfill the engine with oil. If the oil is on the full line (not above it),then the low oil sensor is not shutting off your engine. The oil level should be exactly on the full line-not above or below. Second, remove the spark plug and clean it with a small wire brush or sandpaper. If you are unsure about how to clean the spark plug, replace it with a new one. If both of these procedures have been performed and the mower still doesn't run correctly, the problem is almost certainly with the fuel supply, fuel quality and/or carburetor.

You may have damaged the flywheel key. This affects the timing of the engine, which results in among other things, hard starting and when running will not run as smooth. The flywheel key is the little metal piece that keeps the motor crankshaft engaged to the flywheel. It is designed to shear or partially shear to protect the engine from more sever damage from impacts.

I hope this helps, please let me know how it goes.

Have 2000 limited 4.7. Has engine light on and checked codes,says #3 & 6 misfire. changed coils. but still have light and runs rough at 65-69 mph. A little rough at stop.


why would someone even start with changing the coils...usually a misfire is due to bad spark plugs..replace spark plugs, then go from there...just for a personal reference, the next time you want to see if your coils are bad, simply change out your bad two coils with two coils on the other side of the engine that are good...if they misfire code changes, then you know its a coil...if not, plugs...
