Hi,
Does the engine smoke any? Is the "soot" dry or a little greasy? If so, I would think that a piston ring is broken, allowing oil to get into the combustion chamber.

It will crank and run good for 10 minutes and shut off. Once it shuts off when you restart it, it will only run for a couple of minutes and shut off again ?


I would start by getting a can of carburetor cleaner and have it 'at the ready' and try the 'start, run stall, start run stall' operation again. Only THIS time, once the engine begins to stall, give it a couple of quick shots of the cleaner into the air filter to see if it stays running on the cleaner.

If it does, then it's still a fuel problem. If it doesn't, then it probably an ignition problem. I would be sort of leaning towards the ignition coil getting weak. The reason I'm saying that is your statement about it running (I'm assuming cold start) for at first, 10 minutes then it stalls. Start it again and it runs for a couple of minutes and stalls again.

This could possibly be from the coil getting warm/hot and not producing the needed spark. After a 10 minute run it simply gets too hot and stalls the engine. After the next restart, the coil is already warm from the engine and so it don't take as long for the coil to get hot and stall the engine again.

Hope this makes sense and helps you out.

How come while driving my transmission sometime jerks?


interesting, ricky ? could b anything. fuel filter needs changed, the fuel we use today is garbage, ethanol is bad for our older engines. add some of that new dirt to tank, something360. ??? also, maybe a wire connection is loose., or bad spark plug wires? something is missing its continuity , making the engine miss, not your transmission, u hope ? start with checking your battery conn., clean, tight, etc., replace plug wires, change spark plugs, maybe ? but your plug wires could b the problem. ??? think about it, engine starts ok, its when its running does the problem come up. you have fuel, you need spark, you also need clean air .......... change air filter....... pcv valve......egr valve ?? could b sticking ......you treat yourself good, yes? treat your engine good...whens last time the transmission fluid and filter was changed ??? that could also cause a miss, a surge......yes? i hope this helps you ricky, just use common sence, it always serves me well, good luck, ken

Spark plug # 1 ONLY fouls out after a few minutes of running compression o.k., timing o.k.,leak down test good, all new parts except springs and heads, different plugs,wires,distributor cap,rotor coil...


Try and find, first of all, a hotter plug. Second of all, I'd watch your dipstick very close. Add a hotter (210F) thermostat, get it hot quicker. Finally, if all else fails, you may need to put on new valve guides, or check your rings.

I have a 15.5 HP, Craftman lawn tractor. I'm having problem with it staying running. It will run just find for 20-30 minutes and then stop abruptly. I have changed the spark plug, oil, cleaned the air...


Hi,


Check the Blade Safety Switch. Also check if the Carburettor requires a good cleaning and overhaul or not. After that check if there is any air leak or air in the fuel line.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

My 14SB John Deere mower will start but then quits before moving the throttle, changed oil, oil filter, spark plug, new oil, added fuel stabalizer to gax tank. Any ideas???


Hello. You have some winter buildup in your engine. Get a can of starter fluid and a helper. have the helper shoot small squirts of starter fluid into the air filter while you run the mower. In just a couple of minutes the starter fluid will clear your problem. Joe
