Question about Poulan 42-Inch Steel Deck 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton I/C Engine With 6 Speed

Open Question

My Poulan Pro 42" riding mower (HD1842 - 2005) starts and runs for about 10-15 minutes then chokes out. It won't re-start until about 10-20 minutes later. Then it does the same thing. I've replaced fuel & air filters, plug and solenoid. I'll loosen the gas cap next and see. Any other suggestions welcomed.

SOURCE: Craftsman 42 inch riding mower. Runs great

how old is your plug? try cleaning and regapping it or replacing it at any rate make sure it is gapped correctly also make sure there is no rust dust or debris is on flywheel or coil also the flywheel keyway does more than hold the flywheel in place it servs as a timing pin and sometimes the slightest wear on it can cause the machine to start hard but otherwise run great good luck hope you find the problem.

SOURCE: Poulan Riding Mower won't crank, battery OK.

Forget the safety switches for now.The first thing I would check would be the fuse. It will be located on the battery side of the solenoid. Follow your positive battery cable to the solenoid. There will be a small red wire coming off of that post with an inline fuse. If the fuse is good, check your solenoid. There are two wires plugged into spade terminals at the bottom of the solenoid. Unplug the one that is insulated, the other one is a ground. Hook a test light from that wire to ground. When you turn the key to start (with the brake pedal held down), it should light. If it lights, your solenoid is bad. If not, then you can start looking at switches. Probably will be one of the two. Hope this helps. Dwain

Try loosening the belt tension to the transmission a little bit. Some of these are just stiff and you have to slip the clutch a little to rock them into gear.

Poulan riding mower starts and runs for a few minutes then "chokes out" and stops running, why? If I let it sit for about 30 minutes I can restart it and finish the lawn. Now it runs for a few minutes...


If you have already changed your fuel filter and spark plug, look at your fuel tank cap. The breathing holes may be clogged with dirt or debris preventing good fuel flow. I happened to spend $150 bucks for this $5 fix. Hope this helps.

Make sure it is choking the engine like it should. If it is not choked it wont start for several minutes.
