SOURCE: the mower starts, buts runs sluggishly, and dies

Most common is a dirty air filter, followed by a plugged vent hole in the filler cap on the gas tank. Next would be fuel issues either in the supply line or in the carburetor.
Hope this helps, --W/D--

SOURCE: engine starts dies down immediately.fuel is ok spark plug ok

Most likely the carburetor is not ok. An engine does not just DIE. If you press the prime bulb, does fuel squirt in carb. If it starts the runs for about 3-5 seconds then dies, there is most likely a float or needle shut off problem. Or it could be as simple as a clogged carburetor. It only takes one tiny peice to clog one. Take the carb off and make sure all jets( small holes in carb) are clean. Mike. Rate 100% please.

SOURCE: lawn mower keeps dying

Remove gas cap. If mower now runs without stalling, your problem is the vent in the gas cap is blocked. Replace the cap. Common problem!

Not familiar with tecumseh lawn boy. Lawn boys I worked on were 2 stroke, if this is the case the crank seal is sucking air after engine warms up. New seal would fix. If you can't do it you're self may not be economically worth it.

Did you hit something before it died? If you did you may have sheared the fly wheel key. It breaks so you dont hurt the crank etc. The key is important for the timing of the engine. It may be a hard job if you dont know your way around a small engine. If this dosent help let me know well figure it out.

My lawn mower tries to start but then dies shortly thereafter.


Probably. Does it start after you push the primer and then die? If so, yes, it's the carb. For any more info, I'd have to have the model and type #'s off the engine. Dwain
