    I currently have the same problem, all the research that I have done tells me that the Power Pack could be bad. The next test that I am going to perform is wait for the motor to die again and not start and check for SPARK

I had a similar problem with my merc., turned out to be overheating due to a worn water pump impeller. It would overheat and die, then after it cooled down, would restart. Check to see if you are getting a good stream of water out of the, for lack of a better term, "****", usually located at the bottom of the powerhead, on the rear of the motor. If it\'s just dribbling, dripping, or dry you need a new impeller.

I have 97 Pontiac sun fire runs for 15 min then die will not start for about 15min after that

Fuel pump going out. Once it gets warm after 15 mins the o rings loosen up and cause it to loose prime and shut off. After cooling for 15 mins they have shrunk enough to build pressure again.

spray the cap and distributor and all the HT leads with a water dispersant (wd-40 or CRC spray) Any moisture in the cap will cause a ht short circuit and any dirt tracks outside will do the same.

2010 model 20 hp Briggs motor. Fuel going through fuel line, but not going into carberator. Motor runs good for about 15 min, but after heating up this fuel problem starts. After cooling down for an...

Two things:
1 Is fuel coming out of the fuel line. Older mowers have old fuel lines and they tend to get weak and collapse went they warm up with engine heat. Replace the old fuel line.
2 deposits in the carb. take off the air cleaner, start it up and spray a good carb cleaner in the carb until the engine dies. Put some 'seafoam' in the gas and a little in the oil and put the air cleaner back on and start the mower and mow on FULL THROTTLE. this should claen out the carb. Yes the mower will run rough for awhile.

these two cheap fixes will solve 85 % of carb problems. GOOD LUCK

Fedders 5,000 btu window room a/c; blower won't run or runs very slowly. When it does get up to full speed, it only runs for a short time (10 or 15 mins) then blower stops.

Sounds like the motor is overheating and stopping after some run time has passed.

The issue with it not wanting to get going sounds like it may need oiling (if the oil type). Or it could simply be the motor is on it's way out and will soon die on you. In the latter event you sound like you need to replace the motor.

sometimes the fuel injection will cause the lights to come on because it's still in the motor and messes up the fuel and oxygen readings. Just let the car run for about 15 minutes, then disconnect the battery for about 20 mins. then start up. But disconnecting the battery will reset clock, and need the program windows.
