Could be stuff inside the float bowl holding the float OPEN and flooding it. That IS a weird symptom. Possible coil failure.Is there spark after it dies? Will it re-start? Was the spark plug wet with fuel?

Starts and runs great(when engine is cold).\r\nafter 15 mins the engine dies. will start up again, but will only run about 5 sec. and then dies. toro super recycler 5.5 hp GTS5


I would check the gas cap. If the gas cap is plugged or pieces missing from inside it will not allow air into the tank and the fuel will not flow properly to the carburetor. Just loosen the cap and try it, if it does not change check for dirt in the fuel line.

I had a similar problem. I'll bet I took off the carb. 5 - 6 times and cleaned it with no success. Very fustrating! One time while checking the fuel level I accidently left off the gas cap, I started it and while running I put the gas cap back on and started to mow and about 10 seconds it died. I thought could'nt be! So I loosened the cap, restarted and it kept running. Any way the small vent hole was plugged. Thats my story!. Good luck.

Bad fuel or check for water in your fuel! Clean your carb and float bowl. Empty gas into a clear container, if there is two levels of liquid one of them is water. Of course make sure you have good spark plug.

Toro GTS5 600 has not been used for 3 years, it starts on choke with a spray of engine starter then stalls out when choke removed Jim Slezak slezakj@yahoo.com


You will need to buy a carburetor kit and replace all appropriate parts. Use a Den Tek Brush,(http://www.shopping.com/xPO-Lustrasilk-Lustrasilk-Cholesterol-Shea-Butter-Mango-20Oz-Bonus), to clean the small portals in carb.

If you mean that you prime the engine, it starts then dies a couple of seconds later, your carb needs to be cleaned/repaired.
