Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1
I have a 16 hp Briggs & Stratton engine that keeps shutting down after approx 15 - 20 minutes of running. It will restart the first couple of times and resume running but after it shuts off about 4 times, I have to let it sit for 5 - 10 minutes before it will start and stay running. I have cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel filter but it did not help. It seems like when it gets hot, it almost seems like its out of fuel. Could this be vapor lock or could it be and electrical problem that when it heats up, the coil might not be producing spark? Please help, any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

these are common for doing this ,if you dont want to pull it down and hone the cyl. then i would use a heavier oil say 20w/50and that will probabley solve your problem

an easy way to know that is to start engine and give it a shot of starting fluid ,if you can keep it running by this method I would replace diaphragm.

Believe it or not, I had this same thing happening on our L120 John Deere. Turned out to be a plugged gas cap vent! At first I couldn't believe it but i resolved it with my air compressor. Now I always make sure the vent is clean and have had no problems since.

The engine fuel needs to be primed into the carburator and the choke set.

Testimonial: "thanks for your answer. I was quessing that the suction(prime) was in the throat of the carb a venturi action,but I'll simply prime the fuel to it."
