SOURCE: Runs 5 minutes then dies. Won't start until engine is cold.

Try the WD-40 spray in intake of throttle body with air intake hose off, to see if it will kick at all, even for a second or 2. We need to confirm whether your losing fuel or spark when it dies. Ignition & fuel, can cause similar symptoms in this case.

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

Sorry to stste the obvious, but it is going to be an ingnition unit breaking down, the only answer to this is to replace the unit, contact the engine manufacturers dealer with all the numbers from the engine housing, this should help to find the correct unit.

Vehicle starts runs for 1-2 minutes then quits, Starts right up. Fuel is being shut down.


Also what no one is mentioning is to make sure you have oil pressure, or that the oil pressure sensor is working, alot of newer vehicles run the fuel pumps off of them oil pressure sensor so if your vehicle stops pumping oil and lubricating, it shuts the fuel pump off to protect itself from damage or further damage

My 24 hp B&S starts and runs good for 1/2 hour then it will not start when you try to start it. After it sits over night it will start and run for 1/2 minute then quits and will not start again.


Running for 1/2 minute then stopping sounds like the carb's fuel bowl is starving for fuel. I would check the carb's float and needle and seat to verify it is not sticking. Usually when the engine runs there is enough vibration to unstick it. I would also look at fuel filter (disconnect the fuel line to the carb and verify that fuel flows freely - try not to spill too much).

Tractor starts and runs for 2 minutes and quits. New spark plug didn't help. No spark after tractor quits running. It will restart in 10 minutes.

RUNS 2 MINUTES QUITS WHAT A PAIN ED


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor is tightly fastened to the engine. Will it start and run another two minutes just after it quits? Try loosening the fuel cap to see if that affects the running time. When it quits, remove the spark plug to check for spark. If nothing, the ignition module may be failing. If it appears to be loss of fuel when it quits, the carburetor may not be pumping fresh fuel into itself--remove the carburetor and check the impulse passage that runs from the engine to the rear of the carburetor for leaks of any kind. Hope some this helps!
