Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

What does trouble code P1153 mean?

The upstream (ahead of the catalytic converter) O2 sensor heater circuit has failed. Replaced the upstream O2 sensor and all will be well. O2 sensors wil lnot work below 650 degrees F. To get them functioning sooner after a cold start, and during times when the exhaust is not very hot (idling at stop lights), designers placed a filament inside the O2 sensors to keep them hot so they can measure O2 levels int he exhaust stream (which alloows the engine compouter to mete out the right amonut of fuel to keep the engine running efficiently.) The filament fails open after time so it no longer can heat the sensor. The only solution is to replace the O2 sensor, which is not a big deal.

Since you changed your ignition switch, u might need to check the starter motor, if the starter motor pinion is jammed in flywheel ring gear. it can cause this. Also look at the starter motor solenoid.

R6 engine starts then runs and if u keep it running it wil run fine but if it stops wont restart again when u pull the choke its as if it is about too run but wont any ideas

Hi, sounds like fuel, however try testing the temprature of all four exhausts while the engine is running, poss spark plugs are fuel contaminaed. Care should be taken as the exhaust pipes close to the engine become extremely hot, but 1 exhaust not as hot as the others would point towards a fuel starvasion or a fould spark plug

If the car starts and runs fine when you first start it in the morning or when its cold from sitting for a few hours after driving it but won't start if you drive it somewhere and get the car upto operating temp and then shut the car off and try to restart it with a few mins or upto a half hour basically when the car is hot then you might be looking at a bad crankshaft position sensor. A bad crankshaft position sensor can keep the car from starting mostly when its hot. If the engine control module doesn't see that signal it doesn't know the engine is running so it never sends fuel to the injectors.

My python remote starter when starting in the morning only wil will runl. On my 2008 dicota truck will run less than a min. And shot itself off only in thr morn.

You need to reprogramme the tach input, the engine is running colder in a morning and will run higher for a few minutes, during the day the engine will be warm and idle quickly.
