View Full Version : 15 hp kohler hard to start every morning

I have a 2006 15 hp kohler, used pretty good. Works excellent all day long, however every morning after not been started for 8 hours or so, it needs to be turned over for about 1 minute before it will start. Its getting worse as the summer goes on, could it be timing issue?

I figure if it was a fuel issue it would happen all day but once its started once its good all day.

Any ideas?? I changed the plug, air filter is clean, new gas every day, i'm going to add some fuel additive to see if it changes anything but help would be greatly appreciated!

Check to make sure the choke butterly is closing properly at full choke position.
