Ok this was all after the car was all warmed up how far can you go from a cold start until it "dies:?
I want to suspect a crank sensor or ignition module just because of the symptoms if nothing happens until the egine gets hot ,typical of a failing crank sensor andignition module, always replace them togother.
But there is one more culprit, the catalytic Converter, see they break up inside and over time the catalyist bounces around and becomes a ball, on acceleration the presssure of the exhaust pushes the "ball' of caytlist into the exhaust pipe opening restricting it until it shuts off the car. You pull over the pressure goes away the "ball" falls back into the cat, you start again and it starts all over again. I would hve the cat tested and you can do a test yourself hit the cat on the bottom with a hammer and if you hear some rattling inside when you hit it yhe catalist is broken and is likely your problem.

SOURCE: Mower starts up great and then dies

If it's a briggs engine, sounds like you have water / debris in your carb fuel bowl. Using spray carb cleaner will only work if you remove the bowl and clean the carb jets. Also, you could have water in the gas tank as well. First, remove your air filter, then remove the 3 screws that attach your filter bracket to your carburator and mower. Take off your fuel line at the carb and drain all your gas into a clear jar. If it looks very yellow, cloudy, or see water in the bottom of the jug, change your gas. Using a half inch socket wrench, after gas line is disconnected, remove the fuel bowl and clean with carb cleaner. Also, examine the bolt you just removed. There are 2 jets in the side and one at the end. Using the carb cleaner, make sure they are clean as well. Use the carb cleaner extension tube to spray up inside the bottom center of the carb, where the bolt threads, to clean that area as well. After all this make sure ur float assembly is intact and reassemblt the bowl to the carb and reattach the the fuel line. finish bt reattaching the air filter support bracket makinf sure the gasket between the carb and the bracket isn't damaged.

SOURCE: Craftsman GT5000: Dies when switch is pulled to engage blades

I have the same tractor. If you have the transmission in <reverse> this will happen every time. It's a safety feature. Be sure the tractor is in <neutral> or one of the 6 forward gears.

Craftsman 22" self propelled platinum series lawnmower died while pushing it. wont restart. ????


A good place to start is taking the air filter off. Then try stArtingvit again. Often a dirty air filter will not allow a mower to stay running. If that does not help. Remove the cover under the carburetor looking for dirt in the cover. Also well the cover is off remover the small pin that holds the float in place. Pull the neddle valve out cleaning it and the other parts with a carburetor cleaner then reassemble

My Craftsman PYT9000 garden tractor starts and then dies


There is a fuel cut off solenoid located on the carburetor fuel bowl. This can fail sometimes and stop the fuel from entering the Carb. Also check for pinched fuel line, clogged fuel filter. Some models have a second reserve tank. Check for tank selection valve. Hope this helps.

Mower won't start, pull cord now locked up


when you say it's full of oil you don't mean it's all the way to the top of the dipstick. because if that is the caes you will have to drain most of the oil out until the oil o nly goes to the full mark on the dipstick.that would explain why you can't pull on the starter rope there is no where for the internal parts to move to it's being blocked by all the oil...good luck

i going to assume that yr tractor does have the hydrolic p.t.o. that controls the drive and cutting mechanism's???... if so you might start with checking the hydrolic fluid in the resevior. or you might check into replacing the hydrolic p.t.o. pump , if you ran the tractor in heavy work without any hydrolic fluid in the p.t.o. pump the pump is probably burnt up. if so im sure you can beat the cost of a new pump by rebuilding it yrself with a kit.
