17hp Exmark Question

hi all,

I have a 2003 48 inch Exmark turf tracer walkbehind that i plan on getting serviced for the spring and summer months.

Last fall Before i put it away i had an issue with it...

Sometimes it would just shut off middle of a mow job ( Full of gas as well,)
Im not sure it would have ben the angle i was mowing at or what.

Also i noticed the idle isnt smooth it kinda cuts in and out, but once the blade is engaged its fine

I think it may be a fuel filter problem or pump.

Its a 17hp Kawasaki

I will be taking it to get looked over but im just hoping for no major repairs internally?

Tell me what you think

what can cause an engine skip?
I noticed a slight skip listening to the exhaust, at very low idle

could it be coils?
