Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float

1 Answer

318 dies after it runs for 20 minutes. It cools down and start up and runs for awhile longer. Has been into the dealer twice and still has problem. Coil and condensers have been changed. Tractor runs great when it runs. When it dies, it is just like you turned it off. Dealer does not know that the problem still exist after the second trip in as they just delivered it back today and I tried it and the problem still persist.

On the later models with the 220 series engine you would have a trigger/pickup coil mounted just below the stator with 2 screws.After reaching full engine temp the coil will short out.This has been a problem for the later 318's.On the earlier models with the 218 series engine (the one with points)I would suspect the ignition module under dash.

Pull the pre O2 sensors( it will be loud). If it stays running longer, replace the catalytic converters.

2 year old craftsman 42" deck tractor runs fine for 15 minutes then sputters and dies. Will start, run 2-3 minutes, die again. Leave sit will run for 20 minutes.


if it restarts immediately, check the vent in the gas cap for restriction. also, the solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor may be sticking or getting weak. if you have to let it sit for awhile before it retarts, the ignition module may be breaking down when it heats up. i'd bet on the gas cap or solenoid though

91 Accord Car will initially start then when driving it will die sometimes starts right away sometimes 10 or 20 minutes later but has gotten more frequent about dying and taking longer to start


I have a 1991 honda accord dx that had the same problem. while driving it would just completely shut down. after about 5 minutes it start and run for a while then shut down again getting more frequently. There was a recall on the ignition control module (ignitor) which is in the distributor. call your local honda dealer with your vin # and will tell you if yours was replaced. If not I bought one from parts store for $60 or you could take a chance and buy one from a junk yard. I bought the whole distributor for $20 as a back up.

Motor shuts down


Have you checked/tested the fuel pressure? sounds like a bad pump and or plugged fuel filter, check the pressure, if it is low replace the filter, if that still doesn't help you will need a new fuel pump, it is located in the fuel tank.
