Hi. There are several possible issues here.

  • Overheated - clogged cooling fins
  • Overheated - blocked shrouding
  • Closed choke flooding engine
  • Throttle not in midway position
  • Throttle left in stop position
  • Carburetor solenoid malfunctioning
  • Fouled spark plug
  • Kill lead shorting out
  • Ran out of fuel
  • Lost compression
  • LPG regulator not functioning
  • Vacuum too low to open LPG regulator
                If you can not identify the cause from this list call Kohler directly at

              Hi,
              The engine is will not start becuae it needs a higher octane gas when it is hot to start... replace the gas with premium gas 93 octane and you will have no problems...

                Yes, I have had oil sending units that quit when hot...

                Just that you had not mentioned the no spark so my first thought was the gas....

              I have a walker 18hp with kohler engine. Started it up and it ran for about a minute and cut off. turn the ignition and it won't make a sound. cleaned battery terminals and changed spark plug.


              Running for about a minute sounds like fuel starvation. There could be an obstruction in the fuel tank, which allows the engine only the fuel that is in the fuel line, until it quits.
              Why it won't start again is probably another matter.

              Runs good until hot chokes itself out or runs out of fuel engine reavs high then for 3 or 4 times then cuts off


              sounds like the coil is breaking down at high temperature. make sure the engine is not covered with grass clipping and dirt. replace the coil. i think this will solve your problem

              I have a 1998 kia sportage wil crank over and will not start. no spark.


              Sounds like the coil or possibly the electronic ignition, replace coil as this is the cheaper option. Check to see if your Kia then starts if it does allow the engine to run until at operational tempreture then shut off the engine allow 5 mins then try to restart if your Kia if it starts again without straining or being boosted via jumper cables problem solved. If by any chance you do replace the coil & your Kia still will not start the electronic ignition is the next step & that can be done yourself as long as you have the required tools & knowledge, if not a trained professional will be able to replace the electronic ignition but this will be very costly if it is the electronic ignition.

              I hope this helps.

              Hedge trimmer does not stay on


              Will it start & run OK, does it stop after it gets hot then will restart & run again when it cools untill it warms up then stops again,it yes it can be a bad coil,I had this problem on a leaf blower.sometimes just testing for spark won't help you out it may still have spark but the electronics inside the coil that controls spark timing goes bad you could still have spark but it's out of time so the engine still won't run if you suspect this problem change the coil,bad coils can also make them hard to start.good luck

              to be honest the enigne ahas a control that the left side must fire and run before the right starts to fire it sounds to me like you have a fuel issue possibly the carb. is gummed up and dirty.

              spark control, yes, trace spark plug wire back to its end, you will find what I will call a coil, for lack of the better word, it can be. I would think that is your problem, if you are presently not getting a spark in the plug.

              Ok i took it to the shop and had the timing belt pully and belt changed and water pump changed and cam sincer changed and i got it home and it worked good for 2 days and then it shut off so i got it back...


              may be a bad crank sensor or on its way out. evidently when it gets hot it shuts engine down. a bad crank sensor will stop engine while driving, and will not restart for about 15 to 20 minutes later. it will keep repeating this until it is fixed. usually it sets a problem code. but other sensors have gone bad and no codes or light is not on.
