Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have a 2002 GT5000 that was running well after winter. It started surging after several hours use and the problem got progressively worse till the engine died. Cleaned out carb, fuel solenoid is clicking, replaced fuel/oil filter and plugs, gas is flowing to the carb and it has a good spark on both sides. It starts great but after 10 minutes or so starts suging and eventually engine cuts out. When warm I can restart but then it dies immediately. Choke made a difference before carb cleaning now has little if any effect. Any help is appreciated.
Replace the spark-plug, check the quality of the fuel(gas that is mixed or was stored more then three months is stale and wont fire correctly) make sure the fuel and air filter not clogged. If there is no change then your problem may be more technical, a nest may be restricting the govenor or you missed something with the carb and there still is debre causing it to stall.
