Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If still no help, remove the carburetor, clean it inside and out with spray carburetor cleaner. Check the diaphragm in the lower chamber for flexibility, no cracks or holes. Make sure the components behind the carburetor are in good condition and no plugging of the impulse passage that comes from the crankcase out to the carburetor base. Hope that some of this helps!

The very 1st thing you need to have done is a scan of the control module for fault codes. You will need a OBD2 code reader for this test, cost about $40 US

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.
