Occasionaly the engine shuts off and won't start on JD gx345.

Now it won't start at all. The fuel filter appears to be dry. I replaced the fuel pump. still no fuel in filter. I can remove the fuel line at fuel pump and drain the gas from the tank completely. I have spark from both coils. Replaced plugs & caps. Any ideas

If the fuel pump is working correctly then the problem is between the tank and the pump. run a fuel line from the pump to a gas can. If the pump is working it will siphon the fuel into your filter. If the pump is fine then there is blockage, broken fuel line (sucking air), or something blocking the pick up inside the tank.

Out of Diesel


This particular JD engine has an individual fuel pump for each cylinder. The injectors, fuel lines, and pumps are not accessible from outside of the engine. There is a hand primer pump built into the top of the fuel filter. Start by removing the rubber outlet line from the filter base and pump the primer pump until fuel come out of the filter base outlet. Ounce fuel comes out of filter reconnect the line and continue pumping by hand until the pump button feels solid, then crank engine until it starts. This works better if a helper is available to operate the starter while continuing to pump the hand primer. This is normally all that is needed after running out of fuel.

If fuel does not come out of fuel filter base there may foreign material inside of primer pump. Primer pump can be disassembled and cleaned. If fuel comes out of filter, primer pump become feels solid but engine does not start the fuel control rack inside of engine may be sticking in the off position. This may sometimes be overcome by clicking the key switch from off to on rapidly. If not you may have to have your dealer remove the governor cover to free the rack.

Jd gx345 20 hp kawasaki water cooled. turns over will not start Both coils have juice to bath termals at the same time with the key on or off.


Drain fuel completely from tank, fuel line, and carburetor... Change fuel filter, change spark plug(s) add FRESH gas... Not 1 week, month or year old gas... (Can't be contaminated, or mixed with old fuel) there will be a drain screw on the carburetor (at the side of the bowl) You may need some quick start to get the engine to initially start up and keep it running with the spray until the fuel system fills up with fresh fuel and stays started.

First thing to try with any diesel that won't start is to do a diesel system bleed. This one should be before the HP fuel rail type so start by bleeding the lift pump, then the fuel filters, then the main injector pump to lines to the injectors and lastly the injectors. Good luck.

Hi Craig, when it stops check to see if it has lost spark. If so replace the ignition coil If it runs a kohler engine they are a common failure. Regards Phil.

Tractor not starting , I do not see any gas in fuel filter


I would suspect the fuel pump. Those thin diaphragms wear out every few years. But you can also make sure there is no obstruction in the line from your tank at the same time!
