The problem is going is most likely in the carburetor. It needs to be cleaned/repaired. There's a restriction in the gas flow, probably from varnish, rust and/or water build up in the carb. Hope that helps.

Probably carb? Automatic choke not working? Remove air filter and spray carb with cleaner, Make sure all parts move freely. With engine cold, check automatic choke position. Start and check function as it warms up.

Automatic choke will not shut off once the engine is running so engine dies. Could it be a spring is missing ?


There is a diaphram that the link connects to the choke. It is between the carb and the gas tank, and runs by the vacuum from the engine. B&S engines have to rev up for the choke to open all the way.

Check the throttle position sensor. The fuel injector used for the choke is the only thing keeping the engine running. As soon as the engine warms up, the computer shuts off the injector causing the engine to starve.

Hi Most likely your engine shut off first then the light goes on as soon as the engine oil pressure dropped sounds like you have a carb problem and the motorcycle is running on the choke circuit. then it dies after the choke is turned off.

The engine sputters and dies when it heats up. Is this Vapor lock? On cold start it works great and idles just fine but as it heats, the engine starts choking and soon dies out. If this is vapor lock, how...


sounds like the reason it starts and idles fine at start up is your choke is functioning... as your vehicle warms up.. the choke starts to kick off... Inspect your throttle body and idle control motor.

Lawn mower stays running on jumper cables but once disconnected it shuts down when choke is engaged


if it is already running and you "engage" the choke, you will flood the engine with too much gas and it will sputter and die. the only time you engage the choke is to start the engine when it is cold. if the mower dies when you remove jumper cables, and you leave the choke alone, you need to have someone look at your charging system.

Truck losing power and service engine soon light on


Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.
