If the carburetor has high and low mixture screws turn the high speed in gently until you feel the least resistance and back it out 1 and a half turns. Turn in the low speed mixture screw the same way and back that out 1 turn.

Engine starts. Why does it only run a few minutes, then stop?


a few things may cause this. it sounds like it is starving for fuel. the spark plug may be breaking down when it gets hot. try a new spark plug. if the fuel and fuel lines are in bad shape, old, soft or hard. the fuel don't smell right. fuel filter plugged up. the carburetor may need to be cleaned and a rebuild kit as they are cheap. if it is 30 years old. be sure the fuel lines, filter and carburetor are in good shape. hope this gives you an idea on where to start. good luck

Saw wont start, getting fuel and spark


Try starting it with the air filter removed. If it starts, clean the air filter. It could also be the fuel filter. If you replaced all the fuel lines, make sure you didn't get the oil line mixed up with a fuel line

Toro Timecutter 14.38Z Model 74301 Briggs & Stratton Engine Model 280H07-0166-E1 Has NIKKI carb Starts & runs for ~ 15 minutes then stops. Will restart after 5 minutes rest and run...


Recheck spark when the unit cuts out. I am gonna guess you spent a lto of money chasing a bad coil! When a coil starts to go bad they become temperature sensitive. Time does the rest!

My ryobi x430 will not start. Replace spark plug and still won't start


hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vaccum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evoporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replaceing gaskets or fuel line if necessory.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where thay want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow untail machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding aginst engine to chech spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, 11

I just put a new carb on my 17.5 hp lawn tractor .... it starts and runs great then after about 2 minutes it cut out .... and won't start for a few minutes .... spark is good ...... any ideas? it is...


It is possible that the fuel line is too close to the engine and the fuel flashes to vapor in the fuel line causing vapor lock. I recommend adjusting the fuel line if posible, and retry. Maybe replace that section of fuel line.

The other possibility is the ignition coil is going bad. You can check it by running the engine and when it stops, quickly remove the spark plug, caution hot. Put plug back into the wire and ground the spark plug and try to turn over the engine with the key start, if good spark, then the problem is likely the other,

I mentioned the fuel line first, because you said that you had been working with the carburetor, and the fuel line may be moved or a little shorter.

I hope this helps you get going soon.

Starts fine & stops in 3-5 minutes or driving in 1-3 miles.


Did you replaced your whole distributor or just the cap and the rotor? Have you check the pressure on you fuel line it could be your fuel pump.

Mtd riding mower model 678, dumped gas, replaced fuel lines and fuel filter, new spark plug and battery, starts, runs for a short time then just stops running. wait for a while and starts but then same...


Crack the gas cap and see if this fixes it. If it does, clean the pinhole vent in the fuel cap. A vacuum on the fuel tank would explain your symptoms.
