Toro 6.5 hp pushmower shuts off after ~ 5 mins of

Toro 6.5 hp pushmower shuts off after ~ 5 mins of running. It sounds fine, and when it shuts down, it shuts down quickly. I have changed the spark plug, changed the air filter, added octane boost to gas, changed the oil, tried to run the mower with the gas cap loose. The problem remains the same. After it shuts off, it will restart after a few minutes wait, but again will only run for a minute or so. What's left to try? Thanks for any ideas!

    I hammered down the ground and the sparkplug connection. I cleaned the carb with carb cleaner. I drained the carb. I did not remove it completely. This is a project for next Saturday!

    I also drained the gas out completely and replaced with "fresh from the pump" gas.

Why does it run for 10 mins, then stops?


Loosen Gas cap and see if that helps. Many times the Gas tank Vent gets clogged. When engine runs, it creates a suction and starves the engine of gas.

OR
If the engine was stored with gas in it, sometimes the Rubber seat in the carburetor deforms and wont let the gas flow into the Carb Bowl at a fast enough rate to keep up with the running engine. The bowl empties (after 9 minutes) and the engine quits. Takes a while for the bowl to refill (5 minutes).

What Oil so I Need for a Toro lawn mover 6.75 HP ?


I think you are talking about a Toro pushmower with a 6.75 Briggs motor on it. If so; it is a four stroke motor and requires 10w-30 motor oil.
If it has a dipstick then its a 4-stroke. If there is no way to add oil to the crankcase and no way to check the oil level then its a 2-stroke ( ie. lawn boy and some really old snapper pushmowers)

My toro zero turn seems to overheat and stops moving from left side about half hour it runs fine.?


First check to see if you have any leaks especially on the problem let side. This includes the wheel motor. where hydro oil comes out, air can go in. either way it sounds like you need to take your pump out and open it up and check for metal inside. If you do not have any metal inside check the 5 pistons to see if they are stuck. What series hydro pump do you have?
10L 10A etc.

I don;t know what engine is on your mower but if it has the self contained electronic ignition coil I have seen happen on several engines. It would run good for several min. then the spark just stops . And it will not spark again until it sets and cools . Just make sure it is the ignition that is not working.

When you had the fuel filter off, did gas flow freely from the hose? Sounds like maybe the tank has dirt in it blocking the fuel line. Other than that, maybe there is dirt in the carburetor bowl.
