Charge the battery under a slow 2 amp battery charger and let it sit for an hour to cool down. Using an ohm meter set on dc volts, test the battery voltage. The battery should be at least 12.55 or 12.66 fully charged. Next, take it to your local parts store and have it load tested. If you don't have a ohm meter, load tester or a charger, your local parts store can do all of these for you. If the battery past all of these test, install it back into the mower. Now you will have to have a ohm meter to do this test. Start the mower and test the battery with the red probe on the positive post and the black probe on the negative post and see what it reads. If the mower dies before you get to do this test than you will need to check your cables to be sure they are tight. If it stays running, throttle it all the way up and the meter should be reading around or close to 14 volts dc. If its not, you are having charging problems from ether the stator or voltage regulator. If you get this far and still need help. Email me @ flynow_1@hotmail.com and i will tell you how to check it further. Thanks; George

SOURCE: Honda 160cc mower engine starts and dies.

Your carbeurator is crudded up. Get a can of aerosol carbeurator cleaner at any auto parts store. Remove the air filter and spray two squirts of cleaner into the air intake. Start the engine and keep it running by squirting more carb. cleaner into the air intake. WIth a little patience you will clean your carb. and solve your problem.

SOURCE: murray mower starts with choke but dies

most likely your main jet in the carb is clogged, water in fuel, or a plugged fuel line, filter, or plugged in the tank where the fuel line connects. it is common to have a plug where the fuel line exits the fuel tank if there is a 90 degree turn in the fitting, debris may build up in the 90 degree area. check by replacing old fuel with new, then pull fuel line from carb and fuel should flow freely, look for a blocked fuel line if it does not flow. it it does flow, pinch off fuel line then remove the float bowl to drain remaining gas and give acess to the main jet. the main jet is located in the side or bottom of the lowest protruding area into the float bowl. run a thin wire like a guitar string thru the small jet hole to unplug, then squirt a little wd-40 thru jet hole to visually check flow. next, unpinch fuel line and fuel should flow from carb into float bowl area. then check to make sure the fuel stops flowing when the float is gently lifted to the top of its travel. if problem in this area, remove float pin, float, and needle valve and check for blockage in the needle valve seat. clean out with wd-40 and reassemble, add fresh gas and give it a try!

Simplicity riding mower with 16HP Kohler engine stalls after about 15 minutes. Acts like it isn't getting any fuel, but it will run again later.


I have seen this problem a few times and this may not be the solution however, check the fuel filter. It may have melted and partially closed off the fuel supply. The routing of the fuel hose will cause the inlet end to bend slightly if it gets too hot under the hood.

My ford 500's alternator went out. we replaced it and the battery is new. why won't it take a jump and start?


Hi Jenny,

I'm assuming the battery was new before the alternator went out.

If the car was running off the battery until both died, the battery may no longer be able to hold a charge or hopefully it it taking the lions share of the jump amperage to charge itself.

When you jump the car, try the headlights. If they are dim (or off) you have a bad jump connection. Try reseating the cables.

If they are bright, let the battery have some time to charge. (With the other vehicle running).

If after a few minutes, you get nothing from the starter,comment back. We'll look into other areas.

Best of luck

P-reg 96 escort, my battery is dead after only a few hours however when the car is running (after jump starting it) the immobilisor light comes on for about a minute, then starts to flash every 3 seconds....


Bad Alternator.
After Starting or Jumping your vehicle: Remove the Negative Cable from the Battery.
If the Engine dies or runs really rough it is a bad Alternator.
The Battery Starts the Engine and runs nominal operations. The Alternator runs the Engine after it is Started by the Battery.
If the Engine does not die or runs really rough after removing the Negative Cable, then you have a malfunctioning Battery.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Battery draining fast


I would check the alternator again, it apparently isn't charging the battery with engine running. You need a volt meter or amp meter to test this. Also does the battery discharge when the car is not running?
