    primed six or more times, don't know about taking mower parts apart and cleaning, gas is new.

    have tried countless times to start, same result, will start on prime but not without and not for more thank 5 seconds.

One of a couple things could be wrong

1) try priming it 8 times and see what happens
2) carb is dirty and needs removed and cleaned
3) you have old stale fuel...drain it and put fresh in

Why stalling out without choke ?

Possible vacuum leak allowing more air into the motor than needed thus the need for the choke to offset the unmetered air. Check for any disconnected/collapsed/broken hoses under the hood

Why is my Jeep not wanting to stay cranked?

Your ? is very vague not even sure what stay cranked means. But assuming it won't keep running or keeps dieing or stalling. the most common cause would be poor gas pressure. As in fuel pump is failing or fuel filter is clogged or just very low on gas in tank. That's where most mechs. would start looking.

Lexus SC430 Stalling Problem

Check the EVAP system canister purge valve, usually located on or near the canister itself which should be near the fuel tank. If the valve is clogged or stuck, it will cause excessive backpressure in the vapor return system, which sounds like what is happening here. Good luck, hope this helps.

I have a 2004 silerado 2500 hd 4x4 with a 6.0 engine. I hadnt driven it for a couple days and when I took it for a ride it started stalling on me. I got it home but it wont stay running. Most of the time...

When you say plugs I assume its a diesel w/glo plugs. This could only be a fuel issue; its either dirty or it has water in it or has lost it prime pressure. Dirty or watery can be fixed by draining the tank and changing the filter then flushing the line by opening the bleed screw at the primer pump and pumping it out till its clear/clean. If its the prime pressure then open the bleed screw, pump till there is no air, close the bleed screw and pump until the primer gets too hard to push. Hope this helps.

Turn key can hear fuel pump run turn key to start my truck startes for two seconds and die do it three or four times will start will dun good for a week a do it again will run good three days do it again ...

Could possibly be the anti theft system. Check out this link. When the SECURITY fails, you should see a light on the dash that says security. A symptom of a failed anti theft is starting for 1-5 seconds and then stalling repeatedly.

Keeps stalling on me and runs really really rough

THe coolant sensor could be the culprit. It may be stuck in advanced mode or even cold mode causing it to stall at lights. The sensor may have been over tightened. These sensors need to be put in with a minimum of torque, just enough to avoid leaking. Without seeing the car this is the first place I'd look. Thanks for your question.
