    portlanduserI had the same problem and kept pulling the carborator out and filter, etc. I finally found the solution. Pull the cover off the mover. Look for the carborator. I used clamps to clamp off fuel lines. Remove craborator. On the bottom there is a small metal reservoir a little bigger than a golf ball. On the bottom of that reservoir is a brass hex headed "screw". Pull that screw out and look at it closely. There is a pin hole through the stem of the screw. Clean that out with compressed air or thin wire. I believe that is the fuel injector. Then put it back together and give it a try.

Sounds like a Carburetor problem. The float may be sticking, or even bad gas or water in the fuel. Try some Starting fluid to see if it keeps running while spraying in the intake. Look at the smoke from the exhaust, if it is a dark color, then too much fuel and choking out, if it is a whitish smoke then it is starving for fuel.

Just purchased a toro zero turn mower at garage sale. Ran very well first couple weeks. I was running it the other day, shut it down, jumped back on 10 mins later, mower does not start.


You'll need to check all the safety switches. Probably one in the seat, one for the mower engaged, one for clutch/parking brake engaged, possibly one for reverse gear selected, and possibly for position of the steering arms.

Re my 2001 Toro Persal Pace Lawn Mower- The Engine Starts and only runs for 2-3 Seconds then shuts down. How to repair/ fix.


Could well be either you have low oil, or the oil pressure sensor is out. If it starts and sounds good then just quits this could be it.

My lawn mower starts fine after i prime it but then shuts off aer 10 seconds


Sounds like it's starved for fuel. Usually this can be fixed by cleaning the carburetor and/or installing a carb kit. What are the model and type numbers stamped on the engine?

I have a toro LX 500 Riding Mower with Kohler Courage 22 motor. I was cutting grass and it started hesitating and eventually shut off. It will start but only runs for a bout 30 sec to 1 min before it shuts...


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.

If you mean that you prime the engine, it starts then dies a couple of seconds later, your carb needs to be cleaned/repaired.
