Mower will not stay running and sputters out. Will not restart immediately and must sit for 1 hr or so. While running sputters and does not seem to run at highest rate. Gas is full no recent changes made. 2 yrs old, minimal use.

Your carb needs a good cleaning. while your at it clean the fuel tank very well empty it totally and blow it out to dry.

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

Snowblower was running for 1 hr. i shut it off when i restarted it ran 1 minute and stoped could not get it started, it it sat for 6 hrs. and started but would not run at higher rpms. it seemed to sputter


Hi. And welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

From the symptoms you describe it sounds like the low oil sensor is shutting of the ignition.

i.e ran for 1 hour... hot oil... / low oil level ignition cut off. Sat for 6 hours all oil now in crankcase... started and higher rpm sputters....

Check the oil level. Other than that I think everything is fine.

If not please respond with a "make and model" of your snowblower. After that, there is more that we can do to resolve the problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

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

My mower starts and runs great when cold but dies when hot. It will restart but won't stay running until it cools off again.


How old is your mower ? Sounds like points and condensor if older model ,or ignition module if its newer , points tend to stick together when they get old causing no spark at plug when they cool they come appart allowing it to spark again , module is sort of the same except you have no way of replacing points you have to replace module .

Starts but won't stay running


I had the same problem with my Husqvarna. I thought it was the fuel system, but I was told to check my gas cap for proper venilation. When the mower starts to sputter, unscrew the gas cap to let the air flow. If it isn't venting right it will actually pull the gas out of the carb.
