My bolens riding lawn mower was working great til i hit a low spot with longer grass it got real loud than shut off, when i tried to start it it will start turning over than pop real loud a couple tim

Try starting this without the blades engaged. Bottoming out will affect the deck but not the motor. In fact, remove the drive belt for the mower altogether and see if the engine runs fine. If this is the case then you have to look at where the damage is on the deck.

My mtd riding lawn mower makes a load pop after i cut my lawn and i cut the key off

The loud pop is of course, gas vapor exploding inside the heated engine. To alleviate this, let you tractor engine idle for about 15 seconds after mowing before you turn it off.

just trace the spark plug wire to the coil but you can check the spark by putting a new plug in the wire and make sure it is grounded and turn the engine over if you have spark then you have to pull the fly wheel off and check the fly wheel key
