Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a John Deere GX255 Garden Tractor with a 20 HP Kawasaki engine. The engine sputters like it is running out of gas but never dies. I have changed the fuel and air filters and replaced the gas but it makes no difference. Also, how often should the valves be adjusted and how do you adjust them. The engine has 180 hours on it.

Drain fuel completely from tank, fuel line, and carburetor... Change fuel filter, change spark plug(s) add FRESH gas... Not 1 week, month or year old gas... (Can't be contaminated, or mixed with old fuel) there will be a drain screw on the carburetor (at the side of the bowl) You may need some quick start to get the engine to initially start up and keep it running with the spray until the fuel system fills up with fresh fuel and stays started.

My John Deere only starts with a hammer. I have the Kawasaki engine and it is famous for bad starters, so I carry a hammer and tap on the bolt when I want to start it. So, you either have a bad solenoid in your starter, or the contacts are dirty, battery connections are dirty. Or the battery is dieing. Check it out. Hope this helps.

You most likely have a gummed up carbeurator. Go to any auto parts store and get a bottle of a product called SeaFoam which is a fuel additive. Follow the directions on the bottle and it will most likely clear up your problem in just a few minutes of operation.

My John Deere 345 dies for no apparent reason


You have dirt in the fuel tank and it sucks the dirt up on the filter that is attached to the pump. After the machine stalls, the dirt falls off and it will restart and run for a few min.

20 Hp (kawasaki) John Deere GX255 tractor over revs when cold.


the engine is icing up. Kawasaki may have a winter kit available. I have solved the problem it the past on other engines by partial blocking the air intake screen with cardboard. Cut a piece of heavy card board the same size as the intake screen cut a few pizza slice shapes out and zip tie it to screen. remove in the spring. refer to owners manual if you are unsure what the air intake screen is.
