Question about John Deere Garden

1 Answer

I have a 1996 John Deere 455 diesel It started running only 20 minutes before it dies for no apparent reason. After about 10 minutes it will pop right off again. The engine runs strong, no hesitation

The temperature gauge runs in the lower portion of the green. Regular maintenance on all filters. Recently replace fuel filter assembly due to broken elbow. Having same issue before and after changing assembly. Seems to have adequate fuel flow.

The fuel injection pump has a fuel supply from the fuel filter and a fuel return line from the fuel injections to the fuel tank. This fuel return line is kinked or restricted in some way . Repair fuel return line and it will run. Check return line and fitting on injection pump also. If it is an electrical problem it is most likely the operator presense switch in the seat overheating and loosing connection then cooling off after a few minutes.. Check it out.

John deere 455 keeps dieing


Clogged pilot jet inside the carb. You need to remove the jets and ream them so they are clear. If it starts and then dies as soon as you try to throttle up, then it is the pilot jet.

When starting John Deere 455 lawn tractor, runs great first 15-20 sec with normal black exhaust, then engine starts knocking and exhaust turns grey at that point i shut it down, tested this 3 diff times...


Unless you have a diesel, the black smoke at start up is not normal, it should be white if anything. It sounds like you are burning very rich, or no air at all, check the air filter, check the fuel cond, check the governor thing, make sure it moves freely and rebounds. Change the spark plug. I don't know what else it could be without being there. The carb could be clogged up, some carb cleaner wouldn't hurt. Hope this helps.

1974 John Deere 2030 diesel tractor and the engine dies


I will assume you have bled the fuel system per the owners manual to ensure no air lock in your system. This is especially critical after replacing the injector pump.

The next step is to ensure you fuel filters are good and flowing and last but probably the problem is the screen on the petcock (fuel shut off) in the fuel tank. Remove this shutoff valve and clean the screen with a fine wire brush and carburetor cleaner.

My John Deere 345 dies for no apparent reason


You have dirt in the fuel tank and it sucks the dirt up on the filter that is attached to the pump. After the machine stalls, the dirt falls off and it will restart and run for a few min.
