Hi Garry:
Odds are pretty good that the flywheel has spun a bit and sheared the key. The fix should not be too nasty. You'll need to pull the flywheel and install a new key.
Hope this helps.

Whats the egr valve code on a 98 Lincoln navigator thats 4wd


You have more than 1 problem. Sometimes EGR flow code is wrong because the paths under the throttle body are clogged and EGR is ok. Mystery is lack of heat which can affect engine controls. Could be simply thermostat or sensor for water temp stuck on hot. Stall out is from cold start cycle not working because of false heat sensing.

I stalled the engine by grabbing on to a tarp. Now it will not start


I would assume the mower deck was engaged, check the shear half moon key in the shaft and flywheel. they are made to shear to prevent engine damage. other than that, check all the safty switches that keep the mower from starting unless they are engaged.

More than likely the bearings on the mower deck that your lawnmower blades bolt to are seized or are close to it .Disconnect the negative battery cable from battery before you get anywhere near the underside where the blades do there business. Better yet, remove battery completely, and have it tested at AUTOZONE for free. While battery is out , check free spin of deck blades. Any resistance or grinding while blades are disengaged >debris , fence wire , rope tarp, etc.. or bearing failure. [DUE TO THE NATURE OF THIS PROBLEM AND THE POSSIBILITY OF SERIOUS INJURY, I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND TAKING IT TO BE CHECKED AT INDY SHOP. ... ALTHOUGH COMMON SENSE WILL GO FAR IF YER MECHANICALLY INCLINED. .. YOU TUBES VIDS ARE A GOOD STARTING POINT. NOTE:BEARINGS CAN BE REPLACED,, WHEREAS A HAND OR A FOOT ...AINT AS EASY. Good luck

When this happens have a can of spray starting fluid on hand, spray it into the engine air intake, if the engine starts you may have a failing electric fuel pump

What's a footprint tarp?


It is a tarp that fits exactly under the footprint of your tent, but is an inch or two smaller. If you have a 10' x 10' tent, your tarp would be about 9'10" x 9'10". If you have a triangle-shaped tent, your tarp would be triangle-shaped.

It is smaller than the tent so rain (etc) does not dribble down the tent wall, land on the tarp, and pool under the tent.

While mowing the grass the engine stalls and then catches back and stalls and catches back contuniually. the Murry select riding mower model number 405000x8c.


bad fuel filter, maybe cutting to fast, or grass is to high for what ever setting your at.

example. if grass is more then 10'' high, its not recommended to try and cut it to 3'' in one shot. start with the highest setting, and work it down. hope this helps.......

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara won't start. It started but stalls then will just crank but not catch, or if it catches again it stalls.


Install a good fast idle valve and see if this will solve the problem. If not, try replacing the mass air flow sensor.
