    The engine is a Briggs and Stratton 18 HP OHV Intek. The engines model number is: 5BSXS.5012VP 276016 .

    When running the lawn tractor yesterday, without the engine cover or air filter, that puffs of smoke came out of the Air Intake. Could this indicate that that the engine is flooding???

Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

All you need to do is to have the fuel system cleaned. Replace the fuel filter and you should be good to go.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

It is usually easier to obtain these instructions through the manufacturer of the engine in your tractor. You will need the make and model number of the engine. Do you have a make and model number of the engine?

I have a 2002, 6.75 craftsman presswasher when I start it, it runs for 10 min's then it quits. why and what can I do about it?


10 minutes exactly like you can time it each time after it sits for 15 minutes with out starting it? If it shuts off exactly each time after sitting for 15 minutes with out starting it's the gas cap. Leave it a little loose so air can get in the fuel tank and see if it keeps running if so just buy another gas cap. Get the part number from searsdirect.com and buy it on Ebay cheeper. MJ

Instructions for fixing the choke on a Craftsman LT-1000 lawn tra


I have been hearing alot of this problem. Well it is gravity flow. I just bought a 2002 lt1000 17 hp without a carb the guy was having the same problem so he sent the carb away to get checked out and low and behold it got lost. He waited the summer to see if it would show up but it did not. He got mad and bought a new bigger one. Any ways i am waiting on a new one. Now in my reading these problems i discovered that the fuel line coming out of the tank to the carb is lower. Might be somthing to look at. JIM

2 year old craftsman 42" deck tractor runs fine for 15 minutes then sputters and dies. Will start, run 2-3 minutes, die again. Leave sit will run for 20 minutes.


if it restarts immediately, check the vent in the gas cap for restriction. also, the solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor may be sticking or getting weak. if you have to let it sit for awhile before it retarts, the ignition module may be breaking down when it heats up. i'd bet on the gas cap or solenoid though

First ncheck for a dirty fuel filter, if its dirty enough it will starve the engine for fuel after a few minutes, then slowly let the fuel system refill as it sits.
