Have you checked the choke? Sounds like it might be stuck closed or partly closed.

SOURCE: Starts but won't stay running

It sounds like you are getting a vapor lock.
Try getting the fuel line and fuel fillter away from the motors heat.This will cause the fuel to boil and give you trouble. Check all your electrical connections for that clicking problem. Make sure everything is clean and tight. Check your spark plug gap.

This sounds too easy of a solution but I had a like ptroblem with my Craftsman. I loosed the gas cap a bit and the rough running and stalling stopped. he vent on the gas cap that contains a turn over interrupt valve was plugged causing the gas not to flow. I took the cap apart and cleaned out the vent hole though cleaning the holewith a paper clip would have worked as well. Anyway..it fixed my problem. I think my dirty hands of deris deposited the matera in the vent hole when filling with gas.

I have cleaned the carb for 20 hp briggs and stratton engine and still cant get it to run


Not sure what you mean by 'run'. Engine needs fuel, spark and air to run. And the fuel has to be in an exact proportion to the air.
Air is easy, temporarily remove the air filter.
Fuel is tougher - I would recommend you get starting fluid and spray down the carb (now that you have air cleaner removed).
Spark is toughest. There are some tools that can verify there is a spark and there are some more expensive tools to verify the strength of the spark.
If you have spark, the engine should at least fire up. If the engine dies a few seconds later, you don't have fuel flow. Carburetor is still not working.
Is the carburetor fuel bowl full of gasoline? If not, check filter and needle and seat.
If you have fuel, make sure the jets are clean. The carb sucks fuel out of the bowl via jets. This empties into the carb's venturi (the throat). Take spray cleaner and spray down the little passage in the throat (not into the engine) and you should see the cleaner spray into the fuel bowl. If not, try spraying through the jets and watch the spray come into the venturi.
When air enters the engine, it causes a vacuum that sucks the fuel out. This is physics. The only way it doesn't work is if there is a clog in the system.

I have a sears lawn tractor with a 25 hp ohv briggs and stratton engine. The problem is that it runs very rough, black smoke and has no power when the deck is engaged. I have replaced the air filter,...


So have you actually checked spark to both plugs? If so then inspect valves to be sure valves are operating. Sounds like running on one cylinder. A quick check would be to unplug one spark plug at a time. You may find if you remove the dead plugh wire, there is no change. If you unplug the running cylinder it probably won't start. Sometimes the compression release mechanisms can come apart or come loose. Download your manual for you engine model at www.briggsandstratton.com

Briggs stratton,16 H>P> runs smooth 'til mower is engaged.


Is the choke staying on perhaps? check spark and plug check airflow, get compression test maybe the oil/compression rings giving way... sounds like its getting hot and increasing fuel flow for some reason??? perhaps clean carb with some cleaner while running (remove air cleaner) spray directly into carby while running run at full throttle as you spray it will try and die ... relax on the spraying and see how it goes.. check air cleaner for blockages as the same time :) hope you get it working!

2004 v twin 16 hp 500hours on it runs but spits fuel throught carb when giving gas runs like its missing on one cylinder replaced carb, plugs, fuel filter, it has 120 lbs of compression in each cylinder...


You should take one of the heads off and look at the valves. You may have deposits building up no the valves.

120 pounds compression sounds pretty good for a six year old engine with 500 hours on it. It probably started life at 9 to 1 and now is around 8 to 1.

Lawn mower will not start


check gas tank with light is there dirt in tank? did you change fuel filter? is there spark at the spark plug? try a 2 second spurt of starting fluid in carburetor and crank does it fire?if it does then you most likely need to clean carburetor with carburetor cleaning spray, flush fuel lines with spray and swap fuel filter.
