SOURCE: Occasionaly the engine shuts off and won't start on JD gx345.

If the fuel pump is working correctly then the problem is between the tank and the pump. run a fuel line from the pump to a gas can. If the pump is working it will siphon the fuel into your filter. If the pump is fine then there is blockage, broken fuel line (sucking air), or something blocking the pick up inside the tank.

You may simply need a new fuel cap,vacuum in the tank will rob your fuel and stall it engine,try taking off the fuel cap and see how it runs.If this does not help you may need a new fuel pump,which runs off of crank case pressure and should take over from the choke once the tractor has started.

SOURCE: John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

SOURCE: John Deere will not start.

If you have gas running down to the carberator ( take the fuel line off and make sure there is gas running to it or there may be a screen or filter plugged by the tank or on the way to the carb) if there is gas there the problem lies in the carb itself. If you have some mechanical ability you should be all right as it is not rocket science. If you are comfortable with taking the carb apart the first thing i would check is the needle vavle. With the carb apart you will see a big brass looking thing this is the float, right above that is the neddle valve, that is the first place they seem to stick on me. Move the float up and down if the neddle above it doesn't move or sticks there is your problem. Spray it with carb cleaner and see if it moves freely. You may have to dismantle the carb to get it to work freely. If it won't buy a carb kit and install all the new gaskets needle valves and jets ( this is a very good ideal any how) Also make sure any little ports in the carb are open ( in the bottom of the carb there may be tiny little holes that are plugged) find a very small wire to clean them with and also make sure when you are done you can spray carb cleaner thru them. This is why they have a small straw on the can with it ( watch your eyes and wear safety glasses as you never know where it will spray out from) That stuff will dry your skin out fast so don't get it in your eyes and you may want to wear rubber gloves. Also be very careful when putting back together as there are little pieces that like to slide around and fall out or may get bent even worse you don't want them in your motor. Also try to count every screw you turn as these are jets and you will want to put them back to the place they were set at cause it's a pain to get them set right by adjusting them later. Do not force anything putting it back as you may bend the jets or float and you will have to take it apart again and replace them as well. Take your time and be patient and you will be just fine

Testimonial: "thanks...you gave me encouragement to give it a try. I took off the shroud, air cleaner box and couldn't take off the carb as there are no heads on the four bolts that hold it on. Looks like it was designed not to be removed? I took off an inspection plate on top of the carb and cleaned all of the channels and ports within with carb cleaner and compressed air...still no gas flowing thru carb...unless I force with compressed air. Any other thoughts? It is a twin cylinder OHV B/S. Thank you. "

John deer j320 how do you drain fuel tank


Find the hose at the bottom of the tank and follow it to where it connects to the fuel filter. Have a bucket or gas can ready. Use pliers to loosen fuel line clamp from hose at fuel filter. Pull the fuel hose off of filter and drain fuel into bucket or gas can.

Why wont my John Deere D130 will not stay running


You know the old adage, Keep it simple, lol.

I was mowing along on my LA145, which had about 200 hours on it, and it slowed down then died. Before it died, it was acting like it was losing power. It felt like it was only firing on one cylinder. I waited a bit and it restarted after a lot of cranking. I made a couple mowing passes, and then the same thing happened.

Because I have mowed commercially for many years, I know my equipment inside and out. This mower was in top running condition and should not have been acting this way. There were no engine misses, no backfires and it was not normally hard to start. I knew the carburetor was clean, the coils were good, and the plugs were new. The fuel filter was recently changed. I got off, lifted the hood and gave a general inspection of the engine compartment. I noticed the fuel filter was nearly empty. I pulled the hose off the tank side of the filter and saw there was no flow.

The gas should gravity flow from the tank to the filter, if the tank has a good supply of fuel. Not that I recommend this practice, but I have no problem with doing it myself....I wiped the hose off and blew air back into the fuel tank. It helps to take the gas tank lid off first. After I got a good flow of air going back into the tank (it required several lungs full of air, you can hear the bubbles) the fuel began to gravity flow back through the hose at a decent clip. This fixed the problem. There is likely silt build up in the tank and it settles at the output port blocking the flow of fuel.

The problem repeated itself several times last summer. Back at the shop, I used compressed air to blow the line clear. The problem has not shown up in quite some time.

John Deere x300 runs for about 30 minutes then stalls. There is no gas in the filter.


Check your fuel cap to make sure it is venting properly. If a vacuum is being created, and no air is able to get into the fuel tank, it will prevent the fuel from reaching the carburetor.

John Deere LA145...it will fire up and immediately die and then won't start again. What should I do?


Usually this symptom means a clogged filter, gas tank outlet tube is plugged or a clogged needle valve. But if it smells gassy it is probably not starving, but may be running too rich. If it does not smell gassy then it's probably a fuel delivery problem. Sometime rubber fuel hoses can swell up inside and restrict flow.

I have a John Deere 116 not getting gas to the filter or carb


It shouldn't have a electric fuel pump. What I would do first is take the gas tank off. Take the fuel line off. Drain the gas tank. blow thru the fuel line.put all back on and fill with gas and try again. I'm guessing it sat for awhile. when gas sits for awhile it gets tarnished.any little bit od debris that was in the gas tank could plug the fuel line. Hope that helps You out.
