If there's no water in fuel, which it would spit and sputter if so, then maybe check to see if valves are actuating correctly. Put a compression tester on it and see if it leaks.down if so, perform or have a valve job performed. Just a suggestion for another thing to check. Usually it's one of your last.options but can't be counted out.If a keeper slipped.off then you'd still get a strong crank. Just no.worky. Hope I helped.

Has it been outside? May be water in the fuel.

My john deere 2025r ran rough, then turned it off. Now it won't start. Cranks over fine, acts like it wants to start, but won't fire. Cleaned fuel filter, fuel lines, bled fuel lines. Pumped fuel through...


Did you bleed injectors? Pump primer pump up till you pressure, wait pumping crack a injector nut till you solid fuel. Than close. Go to next one, do the same thing.

2305 john deere want start replaced fuel pump still want start seems like no fire does diesle have fire


diesel work for compression ignition and have only glo plugs to help with starting in cold weather. You will need to bleed the air out of the pump and pressure lines to the injector. Crack the bleed screw on the pump until you get solid fuel then crack the injector line until it drips fuel. re tighten and it should go.

Engine surges won't run with out choke and then it stalls


If the engine surges and won't run without choke it is starving for fuel. Best place to start is the fuel filter. After the fuel filter, pull the fuel line off of the carburetor and place a container under the fuel line to catch the fuel. Crank the engine over and watch for the amount of fuel being pumped through the line. There should be a good stream of fuel with each pulse from the pump. Chances are the pump diaphragm is getting weak and it cannot keep enough fuel in the carb to run proper. Check those items and let me know if it helps, Daniel.

Hello my name is John. I have a 345 John Deere lawn tractor. The problem is that it starts idles rough won't idle up and does not run strong enough to move the mower. It just chugs and puffs white smoke...


345's have a habit of the choke sticking at the carb.Another problem they have is the fuel pump diaphram will crack and allow your engine to fill up with fuel,to much fuel in crankcase will end up past the rings when not running and smoke pretty bad when fired up.

My John Deer L120 riding mower is shutting down


Two things to consider....fire and fuel. Lets start with the simplest....check and replace the fuel filter, drop bowl off the bottom of carb to make sure float is working properly. If this dosen't work...your looking at a new coil. Some coils will go quickly where others are gradual. As they heat up...they will stop working until allowed to cool down again. www.nnyparts.com

John deere 420 trouble starting getting gas and


The engine needs air, so be sure the air filter is clean. If it is not, replace it.

The engine needs spark. Replace the spark plug and be sure that the battery has a complete charge.

The engine needs good fuel so be sure the gas is newly purchased, not gas that has been sitting around for months.
