If you can see the carburetor, there is a small bowl that has a nut on the bottom side of it, remove this nut after stopping the fuel supply, inspect the nut and about half way up there will be a very tiny hole that you must clean out or unstop, this allows fuel to get to the main vent tube, and you can use a bread tie with the plastic removed; to unplug this hole or (jet). you may have to remove the air cleaner to see the float bowl. the nut is ususlly a 1/2 inch nut or 13MM. you can see a breakdown picture or diagram if you type in small engine, a carburetor repair and browse the pages a lot oftime i agree bit better than paying someone to unplug this hole for mechanics prices.

Also, just after cleaning the carb or fuel Jet, try re-starting it without the gas cover first until it runs before putting the gas cover back on. The cover causes a vacuum in the gas tank and restricts gas flow into the carb. Without the gas cover, fuel flows more freely into the carb. Once running is stable, you may place back the cover of the gas tank.

Toro personal pace 20372, starts fine, runs well for 30 or 40 minutes then dies. Starts up again when cooled down just a bit.


Need fuel that is not more than a couple months old

Need a good or clean spark plug

Have no idea how old it is, or how many years
you have used it

Sometimes you have to remove the head & clean the
carbon off the piston & head
That is a tune-up on small equipment

Make sure the air filter is clean

They usually start with the air filter off,but you don't
want to do that all the time

Why does my Toro GTS 6 hp lawnmower start then die?


Have you cleaned out the fuel jet ? if you have a fuel bowl on the bottom of your carb take it off and clean it out anbd look at the bolt that lolds the bowl on I could have little holes in it. This is the fuel jet and will not run if it is plugged.

TORO 6.5 RUNS FOR 4 SECONDS AFTER PRIMING THEN DIES.pUT IN NEW SPARK PLUG,new gas,but after priming run for several seconds.. it dies again....can you help...sounds like dirt in carb??/ It had run...


Did you check the filter? If the engine doesn't get air they it could cause it to die out like that. Also make sure that there isn't anything in the air line to the carb.

Did you check the gas line and make sure that you are getting enough fuel?

What is wrong with a Toro GTS5 that starts well but dies 5-10 seconds later. I have changed the spark plug, air filter and oil. New gas too. Any suggestions? Thanks.


I had a similar problem. I'll bet I took off the carb. 5 - 6 times and cleaned it with no success. Very fustrating! One time while checking the fuel level I accidently left off the gas cap, I started it and while running I put the gas cap back on and started to mow and about 10 seconds it died. I thought could'nt be! So I loosened the cap, restarted and it kept running. Any way the small vent hole was plugged. Thats my story!. Good luck.

My engine will start then die


Remove the float bowl from the carburetor, clean it out and use a commercial spray carburetor cleaner to clean out the main jet in the center of the carburetor where the bowl nut screws in

Oil causing a problem?


Sound as if you have too much oil in the machine. Anytime you see white or lite gray smoke it is a sign of too much oil. Before you go through the routine of cleaning the oil out of every nook and cranny, try unscrewing the spark plug and clean it with a soft rag. It would have oil on it preventing the machine from starting. If this does work and there isn't a lot of oil in the gas tank now, just continue running the engine until the smoke clears. It won't hurt anything. But if cleaning the plug doesn't help you will have to empty all gas and oil from the gas tank, refill with new gas, squirt a little gum out carb cleaner in your carb to remove any oil there (this can be done when you try to restart the engine). Remember, when you are mowing grass if you are mowing on a hill) of any knd, make sure to turn the mower so the gas tank is on a higher level than the oil.

2000 silverado will start but wont stay running just dies.


I also agree it sounds like a fuel pump issue. Its easiest to remove the box (6 bolts {need impact wrench} disconnect wires at plugs and disconnect gas filler hose) and lift box up. A hoist is easiest but 6 people can lift it easily. The fuel pump can easily then be replaced. Takes about 1 1/2 hrs. to do entire job this way and its so much easier!
Good Luck!
