Could be an igniton problem. Next time the engine shuts down like this quickly pull the plugs and see if any are damp. This would indicate a failure to fire caused by some part of the ignition system malfunctioning when warm. The crankshaft position sensor, ignition coils or the computer could be at fault.

My 2000 r6 is now shutting completely off after only making it a block down the road. Sounds like it is bogging down or flooded before it shuts down and fills the crankcase with gas and oil

dont know this vehicle is it a two stroke or four stroke. if its a two stroke then gas and oil in the crank case is quite normal, it the method of lubrication for a two stroke.

Mow for 30-60 min.mower shuts down. Sometimes you can mow all day.start goin up hills mower will shut down,about the second or 3rd trip.what's the problem?

Don't know what kind if engine you have but many have low oil shut down float switches inside the engine..when operating on hills or side if hills too long the oil will flow to the low side and the low oil switch will pick it up as low oil and shut it down..look for a small wire attached to the crankcase it most likely is that low oil switch..the next time this happens try disconnecting it and tape the end if the wire..try starting and run on the should not shut Down..just remember it is a safety switch to protect the engine from damage from low oil operation.try running the hills where the oil runs to the wire side of the engine..won't trick the low oil alert...Good luck..

Auto shut down relay

Oil Light comes on when the Pressure drops below a certain amount. If I was a betting man, I would tell you to test your CRANK SHAFT SENSOR.

Car runs great until it get about 180 degrees andthen shuts off let it cool off a lil bit its starts back up until it shuts off again why

I am thinking that perhaps the temperature sensor is reading wrong and therefore sending a message to the computer that the car is running too hot. This can happen, my VW presently reads 20 hotter on the guage than a heat gun records at the temp sensor location on the head. If you have access to a heat gun it might be a good idea to check out the actual temperature, but it probably won't hurt to change the sensor.

The other problem that occurs to me is the oil sending sensor. While a temperature sensor won't shut an engine down, the oil sender can. If it is reading a large drop in oil pressure it will shut the engine off. Since oil gets thinner as it gets hot, perhaps a defective sending unit is reading it as too low. Once the oil cools off, it would restart until the temperature gets too high again. I would think that upgrading to a heavier oil might cure the problem. I don't know what you are currently usung but certainly you could go to 10W30 or 10W40 without too much trouble, at least for a test. Hope this helps.

Engine shuts down after driving about 20 miles let cool down for 10 min. and it will go again

You didn't say whether or not the car is running hot so I'm guessing here. If it is running hot then the temp switch could shut it down for obvious reasons. So could the oil pressure switch. The oil pressure switch will shut your engine down if the oil pressure drops below a certain point. This is caused by lack of oil pressure. Lack of oil pressure can be caused by low oil level, weak oil pump or oil too thin to lubricate. If the engine is running hot that can thin out the oil to the point of no use to the engine. If you have a high mileage engine and are still using 5W30, 10W30 oil then try upgrading to 10W40, 15W40 or even 20W50.

Your engine could be running lean which would create a hot situation that would cool fairly quickly. If this isn't adressed you can look at catastrophic engine failure in your future.

You could also be looking at an internal problem such as warped heads, bad head gasket, worn out oil pump.

If it was my car, I would be taking to someone to find out the exact reason it is doing this. I would likely take it home and fix it myself but I think you should have a professional diagnose this more accurately. Hope this helps.

Tiller shuts off when I engage tines. I have changed the oil, cleaned the fuel tank out, checked the plug, I just need to know what adjustments, if any that I need to make.

Is the gear box full of oil? If it is dry it will bog down the engine and stall it. Will the engine run at full speed without the tines engaged? If it doesn't maybe the full throttle mixture screw needs adjusted out CCW a little.

Ok so my wife and i were driving down the road and the engine starts running rough like its starving for fuel every time i would hit the gas it bogs down. then it finally shut off. i tried to start it...

I would check the injector plugs with a Noid light, and check the resistance of the injectors. Also, check the fuel pressure regulator. What did the old plugs look like when you took them out? Did you check the fuel pressure?

Briggs and straton 18k home generator cranks fine and runs for about 15 seconds and then immediately shuts down. It is hoodked into the house power panel and has worked perfectly for two years. It is on a...

If you're sure it isn't a fuel issue, also check these things:

The engine oil - it could be low on oil and shutting down on low oil pressure

If water cooled, check the coolant level. Same thing - the engine may have a low coolant sensor.

Make sure the unit isn't overloaded.

If it has overspeed control check to see if the engine is running unusually fast when it does run.

Have a 90 series kenmore dryer, won't always run. replaced the motor about 6 months ago, and now it will sometimes run, sometimes not. It gets hot, and will run for a bit then shut down, then start up...

If the timer is not advancing but is ticking that could be the problem. A dryer achieves a set temperature and stays there for a certain amount of time during a cycle. If the time never changes it may just keep heating up until the heat sensor shuts it down. If it is starting and shutting down its likely still related to the heat sensor.
