Its probably the fuel solenoid on the bottom of the float bowl. Remove it and replace with a float bowl bowl plug. You can leave the connector unpluged.

Cutting out


Almost sounds like a vacuum lock ("it feels like it running out of fuel"), like the gas tank isn't venting.
Air has to be allowed into the gas tank to replace the fuel leaving it.

Next time it dies, open/take off gas cap and see if it fires up right away, instead of having to wait 10 minutes.

If that works, start looking at the vent lines and see if it's plugged, or a one-way valve isn't working, or the line is pinched.

Powerwasher honda 13.0 running fine until gets hot after 30 min. cuts out every 5 mins after that.


If this has the thick silver gas cap, I have had similar problems on a number of these engines because it is a vented fuel cap and it will slow or even stop the fuel flow if they stop venting Try loosening or better yet replacing it. If that doesnt solve it then you may want to drain the fuel and put in fresh fuel Pressure washers will get water in the tank. Also make sure you drain the carb bowl. There is a bolt on the side of the carb bowl for that purpose.

Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem.
Run your mower again and when it starts to run rough, loosen your gas cap. If it runs right again, you have a stopped up gas tank vent. clean it or replace the cap. Could be a bad coil too. I hope I've helped! Thank you! Dane
