After it starts it will run fine for a bit then stops suddenly. Does not run down as it would with a fuel problem. Only happens when it is hot. Then it is impossible to start.

The most likely cause is the ignition module failing once it gets hot. While not common it is not unheard of either. I suggest you replace the spark plug first and try it (<$5). If no better try this cold just to get a feel for it, then as soon as it cuts out try it again.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode.

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when the flywheel is rotated.

Immediately check for spark at the plug. If nothing, try a new plug first. If still nothing, remove the stop switch connection at the ignition module and try for spark again. If still nothing, it's new ignition module time. Use a thin business card for the core gap spacer, turn the magnets up under the new module and allow the module to stick to the magnets. Tighten the module screws and rotate the flywheel magnets out from under the module to remove the card. Turn the flywheel one turn to make sure the gap doesn't close up at some point. Hope this helps!

My corolla 2000 suddenly stop , have to wait then start again like nothing happen,


There may be something floating around in the fuel tank that blocks the fuel sock. Stopping allows it to move gain so the engine will start again.

My Husqvarna 351 starts then stops after 1-2 seconds


Once the saw cools down will it restart and run fine? There are a couple other solutions that are not directly due to carburation. The first two solutions above are definitely your first options.

1. Ignition Coil: Highly unlikely, but possible. I seen some where they get hot and run fine while cutting, you shut it down for a few minutes for whatever reason and it won't restart or starts and stalls.

2. Crankcase Air Leak: We started to see more and more of these issues. There are a couple of quick ways to test this if you do not want to pay a shop to do an actual test. You want to do a cold test and a hot test. With a half tank of fuel, start the saw up for the first time of the day. While the saw is idling, turn the saw sideways from right to left, do this slowly, listen to the saw idle, if the speed changes by increasing or almost stalling, you have a crankcase air leak. Most bad air leaks won't be noticeable until the saw has gotten hot and the aluminum crankcase starts to expand a bit. Do the same thing once the saw has gotten hot. If this happens when it's hot, chances are that it won't start or starts and stalls until it cools down and everything retracts.
Test Results:
Sporadic idling when cold: Most likely just the oil seals, fairly inexpensive repair.
Sporadic idling when hot: Most likely crankcase itself is leaking, requires a complete crankcase gasket replacement. Can be fairly expensive to repair.

Hi there I have a 1989 Suzuki GSX600F.. and it starts fine but when it gets hot it looses power all of a sudden .. exactly like it had run out of fuel... then once cooled a bit it wil start again no...


is it when it gets hot or when you drive it for a short time?/ It could be that the gas tank isn't venting properly.
Run with the Gas cap unlocked a bit and see if problem goes away. If it goes away then you need to find and clear the vent

My Toyota Starlet is demon possessed!


Not without trying to narrow down the choices.
If it shuts off like you turned the key its probably something electrical like a relay or the coil.
But you would really need to troubleshoot it when it happens to narrow it down.

I think your ignition module is failing when it gets hot; rare, but it happens. Change the plug first <$5 and try it before you spend >$50 for a coil.
If problem persists do this VERY soon after it dies. It tests all parts of the ignition system.

Engine dies when running. Intermittently dies while running no sputtering or other warning, all of a sudden the engine is off. Mostly happens at lower rpm's. Starts right back up after putting it in park.


first thing to replace and cheapest would be the fuel filter ,if that doesn't fix the problem , it may be the fuel pump . GM fuel pumps are in the gas tank, and they have a built in thermo fuse . when fuel pumps get old 60000 miles or so..the motor in fuel pump starts running to hot and the thermo fuse kills the power till it cools down then it will run till it gets hot again note the cool down time keeps getting longer and longer

My 96 camery 4cyld runs fine and all of a sudden will just stop. Turns over fine and plenty of fuel in the tank. Wondering if the fuel pump is going bad or fuse? or fuel injector


well, check all ofthe fuses. fuel pumps dont "start going bad" they either work fine or not at all, so you wont have to worry about that just yet. consider replacing the fuel filter, and running a health dose of B12-Chemtool or some other kind of high performance injector cleaner every single time you put fuel in the car. this stuff works better if you start using super octane for a bit too.
