My john deere lx 280 is running rough and sputtering

Sometimes when i first start it ,mower runs fine but once it warms up it runs rough and starts to sputter.the last time i used it, it made a pop and it started to run rough and sputter.i noticed one time i checked the spark plug wires and one side had no spark and then a little while later it switched and the side that had no spark then had spark and the side that had spark didn't have any spark.What can it be?I was gonna rebuild or buy a new carb and hate to find out that wasn't the problem or can it be the coils.

The problem is either withe the coils or with the ignitors,the ignitors don't usually cause the problems that you're discribing but the coils can come and go as the temperature changes so i would start there.

I have a john deere 997 ztrax ride on mower starts ok runs for about 10minutes then cuts out starts again runs for 5 minutes then cuts keeps doing itout cannot find the problem it is a 2004 model


Have you given it a tune up and oil change recently. If not,mdomsomand then see how it runs. If you are still having this problem, it could be the coil,having problems once it warms up. A good clue is, will it restart right away after it shuts down. If it won't, then it's probably the coil. If it does start up when warm, it's possible the fuel pump may be acting up.

Possibly a head gasket problem (as the head heats up it warps slightly, allowing coolant to seep into the cylinders, which is the source of the white smoke--steam) Is the motor using coolant?
