Hello. IF your spark plugs are good, and your air filter is clean, and your fuel tank is not close to empty, the next thing to check is the fuel line and the fuel filter. As a general rule, I change the fuel filter every 40 hours and the fuel line every 200 hours. J.

Riding mower v twin acts like its running out of gas how to check what is wrong


Does it idle normally, but only start starving of fuel under load or high revs?
If so, check the fuel filter - just a simple plastic cylinder that the fuel line runs through before going into the carburettor. Quite cheap and easy to replace.

My garden tractor is not holding it's battery charge. I replaced the battery, but still doesn't hold a charge after I use it.


If you replaced the battery with a new one and it is not holding a charge, then your charging system is not putting out enough power to run the mower AND recharge the battery. So you need to figure what is wrong in the charging system.

I have a DYT400 Craftsman mower. Fuel is not getting to the carburator.Could it be the fuel pump?


Most likely or look for a fuel filter in the lan to see if it is clogged. if you take the hose off to the car and crank the engne, fuel should come out. in not, trace the line back to the tank to find the filter if there is one.

The pump is not good,to test it,you take out the out fuel pipe start the engine ,see if fuel is coming out fully to the pipe,if sometimes it comes and cut,this means the fuel pump is not working properly.You have to change it.

YS 4500 Stalls out after running for 20 mins


I do believe they change plug(s) and air filter? There could be impurities and water in tank. Check for any loose electrical connections. Problem with valve clearance. Keep me informed.
