SOURCE: John Deere L120 appears to run out of gas

This is the most common problem with the L120 I'm told. The pin hole in the gas cap needs cleaning (top and underneath as well). I have replaced mine twice already and have only 140 hrs. on it. Starts right up after cleaning. (My symptoms were identical to yours)

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.

Hi, I have a John Deere Z225 with an 18.5 Briggs


Although, this does sound like a fuel issue due to past experiences I want to say the problem might not be fuel at all, but before we go that route try one thing. On that particular model I believe the gas cap is vented, if so try running it till it acts up, then remove the gas cap for a moment and see if the engine returns to running normal, if not I believe your coil is going out. I have seen alot of these engines recently where the works fine but when the get hot they quit functioning all together or only function part of time which in your case would indicate why it is missing and fowling the plug. When these tend to do this after they cool back down they function properly again until they get heated up again. I hope this helps you.

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.

check your gas cap ro make sure the air hole is not pluged, try running it without the cap for a few min ans see if that helps, you may also anve got some water in the gas and its at the bottom of the tank and sloshs around and ocassionaly runs to the carb
it mkite not hurt to drain the tank into a clean bucket let it sit for a short bit the four all but cup or so back in as water is heavery than gas
also when you have the tant empty maybe blow it out from the fuel line back to the tank look in to see if anything has come back into the tank

JD L120 riding mower keeps dying on me


Loosen fuel cap 1 turn to see if it will stay running.Theres a tank breather hole/vent in the cap and when it becomes plugged no air can get into fuel tank when fuel is used,can also be a plugged fuel filter.

John Deere 105a series


Take the muffler off and clean the gunk out of the hole going to the motor and i would soak the muffler in some carb cleaner overnight, let it dry and shake out the gunk. Put it back on and i'm certain it'll fix the problem.
