Question about Toro Co M/R Blwr/Trmmr Rear Bag Kit

1 Answer

My Toro lawn mower starts good, but it only runs for about 5 minutes and shuts off. I have new gas in it and a new spark plug. It is only 3 years old. Also it won't start right away after it quits.

Sounds like you need a carb cleaning. Also install some Seafoam gas additive in your gas tank to clean out the gunk that builds up. Do not use ethanol gas.

    What gas is suggested, Sea foam gas is where?? Carb has been cleaned, the mower is only 6 hours running normal grass cutting, ran great for 3 hours running. You might have something about the gas, does ethanol make it run like Imentioned?

If the mower was lying up for a time you will need to remove and clean out the carburettor and fill with fresh fuel.Stephen.

How do i get my toro gts-5 550 lawn mower to keep running?


The problem is likely varnish buildup in the carb. Add PAINT THINNER ( yes, I meant to say that !) to the gas. Use 1.5 ounces each of Xylol ( Xylel) and Acetone per 10 gallons of gas ( 5 gal. can will use 3/4 ounce each ).Drain gas tank and carb float bowl. Add fresh gas mixed with thinners. Remove air cleaner element and use quick starting fluid with upper cylinder lubricant to start mower, and keep it running with SHORT bursts of starting fluid until it will run on its own. You may also need to replace or clean air filter if it is old or dirty. continue procedure for 5 minutes or so. Remember to run Sta-bil fuel stabilizer through the system before you shut down for the season, as this will prevent the varnish build up.
I've been using thinner in all of my engines ( gas, pre mix, and diesel ) for a few years with no bad side effects. I've ridden over 15,000 miles on my motorcycle - getting better mileage and power, and not having to buy premium gas either.
Hope this helps!!

Have a self-starting, self propelled toro lawn mower about 5 years old, I ran it out of gas by accident & now it won't start


It seems to be an obstruction in your fuel delivery system. Get a can of ether and a spray a short burst of it into the breather area near the carburetor, if the mower starts up and then stalls out, then you may need to get your carburetor serviced.

Toro lawn mower troubleshooting


Clean the carb, gas tank and fuel line (s). Replace air filter with a new one, I wouldn't recommend that you run it without the filter because that allows dirt and grass debri to enter the carb, fuel line and gas tank.
Replace the plug with a new one that is recommended for your engine.
Check oil level.

Other option is lawn mower repair shop....

Hope this helps, I had the same problem.
