I had this issue on my 14hp kohler and it was the ignition module. Would run until it heated up then shut down.

I have a26hp kohler engine on my craftsman riding ractor and it doesn't run after 5 minutes. I have changed the carb, and tune it up with Sears parts and it still does the same thing. How can I te


they make a inline spark tester you can put inline to the plug so the plug fires and you can see but that motor has 2 coils so if 1 cuts out the other cylinder will keep on going so if your loosing spark look at the safety switches the seat the clutch/brake pedal the trans shifter etc if its starving for fuel the gas cap vent could be plugged not allowing the tank to flow fuel

Poping while trying to start


Over time carbon deposits build inside the engine including the valves, seats and spark plug. Easy to change plugs however not so easy to clean carbon. There are products at auto parts store that you can pour into carb and add to fuel that can help to eliminate deposits. Leaking valves can cause poping noise, backfire etc. Easy fix is to try using products mentiond above then new plugs and add several gallons of premium fuel to increase the octane level. If the engine does not run however suspect old fuel or water in fuel bowel. Try spraying carb cleaner into carb little at a time to keep running. If the engine runs with carb cleaner, suspect fuel/carb/pump problem. Good luck

Engine runs great for 10 minutes and then stalls. Won't start until is sits 3-5 minutes. Replaced fuel lines, filter, cleaned carb., replaced spark plug. What else could be causing this?


Believe it or not, your gas cap is clogged up with dirt and debris. When a carburetor is unable to get a constant flow of air from outside, pressure builds up on the fuel tank. The fastest way to determine whether or not this is the problem is as follows.

As you are using your Mower, at that point when it begins to stall out, loosen the gas cap so that you release the pressure that is built up in the gas tank. If the engine begins to regain power, then you know it is a clogged gas cap. (Simply get a small wire and clear the breathe holes in the cap.) If the engine dies even after loosening the gas cap, then you may want to check to make sure the air breather is clean. ( A dirty air breather can cause the engine to over heat and stall out.)

If none of this seems to help, then it is probably a bad Ignition Coil.

Good Luck!

Car stalling when removing gas pedal


Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the engine at idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
