Question about Garden

Open Question

2004 John Deere Gator with a 10 H.P. Kawasaki engine. Less than 200 hrs. Seems to be starving for fuel. Have fresh gas, checked fuel pickup, fuel pump, cleaned carb 3 times. At full throttle have to feather choke. At regular throttle will die and then start right backup. Still seems to be intermittent. It will be ok for a while then it comes back. I think it is a fuel problem because choke helps the symptoms. Thank's for any help.

SOURCE: John Deere Gx75, kawasaki 9hp motor- oil in carb!

A very common problem with the GX series with Kawasaki engines. The carburetor 'inlet needle' sticks open and fills the crankcase with fuel. When checking the oil, it can be difficult to see the gasoline and the level appears to be OK. Remove the dipstick and smell the oil, you may detect a gasoline smell. Also, drain the oil, and you may find much more fluid than you expect.
The solution on newer mowers was to install an 'in-line' shut-off valve to keep the fuel from syphoning into the carburetor. The inlet needle and seat in the carburetor is NOT replaceable, so a new carburetor is the ultimate solution, but VERY expensive. Installing and using an in-line shut-off valve is more affordable.
Also, this situation is common when machine is transported on a trailer, as the bouncing causes the needle/seat to leak. When transporting, always turn off the fuel supply to the carburetor.

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.

SOURCE: John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the ideas. I will try your suggestions. Tractor used for snow blowing during the winter and gas did not stay in it long. Good ideas!"

SOURCE: john deere 425 mower won't start

The ignition switch module is likely to be the problem,they seem to quit for no good reason.The safety relays and fuses are built into the board that comes with the switch and will most likely fix your problem.

Hi, although i dont know what a gator cs is i would suggest you first check that your valves are opening to actually let your fuel mixture into the engine. If the valves are opening / closing at the correct time you need to check compression on all cylinders. you may have sticky rings or worse.

Yes it is a vacuum fuel pump. Remove the line to the carburetor and place a clear container to catch fuel. Crank the engine and watch to see how much fuel is being pumped. It could either be a weak fuel pump or the pickup line in the fuel tank is starting to rot, depends on how old the mower is. The pickup line in the fuel tank is rubber, and sitting in fuel for many years can break the line down causing it to fall apart. It should be noticeable more if the fuel tank is below 1/2 tank. Hope this helps, Daniel.
