Question about Cub Cadet Street Sign- tractor lawn riding mower parts

1 Answer

Stalls when hot

I have 2 149's. I put new points in both. After mowing a short time, 20-30 min, the engine starts to knock, sounds like it's trying to lock-up. Smoke comes out of oil filler tube, and engine quits. After cooling off, it will start immediately and run until it gets hot.

2008 cub cadet rzt 50 run for 20 min than dies while mowing put new pump on, new fuel filter, new air cleaner, new plugs. has a 22hp kawasaki engine. fuel lines clear

When it stalls out did you check the spark? I suspect the engine is losing spark due to an ignition system failure.

Noisy vibration under car when started up, then stalls when put in gear. Clears after running engine for few mins

Sounds possibly like big end trouble, is there any knocking att all. Is the vibration accompanied by any new/unusual noises please. Add details and resubmit the query

When it fails do you still have spark at the plugs? Sounds like and ignition module or coil to me.

Hi, I have a John Deere Z225 with an 18.5 Briggs

Although, this does sound like a fuel issue due to past experiences I want to say the problem might not be fuel at all, but before we go that route try one thing. On that particular model I believe the gas cap is vented, if so try running it till it acts up, then remove the gas cap for a moment and see if the engine returns to running normal, if not I believe your coil is going out. I have seen alot of these engines recently where the works fine but when the get hot they quit functioning all together or only function part of time which in your case would indicate why it is missing and fowling the plug. When these tend to do this after they cool back down they function properly again until they get heated up again. I hope this helps you.

John deere lt155 lawn tractor shuts off when it gets hot while mowing, could this be electrical?

I had a similar problem lasy year.
Try this:
As soon as the machine seems to be stalling, loosen the gas cap.
If the engine continues to run, clean the gas cap vent hole(s).

Mower stalls out after about an hour of run time

A few possibilities

1. If engine runs hotter than normal it can eventually heat up the carburetor to the point that there is a vapor lock. Blockage caused by gas bubble: a bubble of vaporized gasoline that blocks the normal flow of fuel. Problem goes away when things cool down. If that is the problem, you need to solve overheating problem. Since you have changed the oil, might be something blocking airflow to the flywheel which has the cooling blades on it. Or cooling blades are filled with debris. Make sure vent hole in gas cap is not blocked

2. Could be bad coil, or condenser causing the windings to act up when they are hot and have expanded they short out (kill engine) on their own casing. After they coil and shrink, they un-short themselves.
