Read entire posting before doing anything else first. I discovered what the problem was, after changing spark plugs, fuel filter and air filter (At this point the mower would not start at all): 1. Checking for spark. I got spark out of both plug wires. The modules were OK. 2. Checking for fuel flow. Only small amount of fuel coming out of fuel pump. I changed the fuel pump. (I bought a Briggs and Stratton for $22.50 instead of a Kohler for $60.00. Same fuel filter!) It ran fine for 10 min. then quit again! I loosened the gas cap and it has ran fine since then, by keeping the gas cap loose. I will replace the gas cap. Note: It was difficult to find the problem, since I replaced the filter and removed the vapor lock, so it ran for awhile. I then checked the fuel pump and removed the vapor lock, so it ran for awhile. I would suggest that people with similar problems, loosen the gas cap to see if that works first!
Most probably, the AIC stepper motor is bad, one way to kno, is when the engine slows at idle when you swithc on the air conditioner, and the Idle automatioc control does not correct the RPM dropping from the increased load. An engien that does not maintain correct and stable idle cannot maintain the battery charged, but it could have multiple issues.
Have you changed the oil and cleaned the air filter, after the fuel tap problem. fuel in the oil can cause this symptom. the fuel ends up in the sump when the taps fail as yours did also check choke is not stuck open, and battery is in good condition
the quickest way to check to see if you have a fuel pump issue...since you said it blew the fuse, is after your battery has been trickle charged for at least a good six hours to insure "max voltage"..have someone spray some starter fluid in the intake manifold while you try and crank it, if it starts right away you probably have a bad fuel pump putting out low pressure, clogged injectors, or possibly a bad "ECM", check also to insure that the battery cables are extremely clean take a wire brush to them to clean them up if you have to an make sure there secured tightly to the battery. there is also the possibility that if you have never changed the spark plugs and the car has over 90k you might want to change them out also. And one last thing to check is all the plug wires at the coil packs and terminal post, remove them one at a time and make sure there is no corrosion on both the wire clip and the terminal post. i found corrorsion on two wires and the coil post once.. i cleaned it up and it ran good, but i decided to change them all out anyway. my car had 89k and you should have seen the condition of the spark plugs, all the electrodes were half worn away..i just bought it used and i took it for granted that the plugs would have been changed out by the previous owner. hope this will help you get closer to finding a fix! if i"ve been somewhat helpful could you rate this responce thanks..we here a fix ya love feedback, it helps us keep on going. thanks!
