    Does anyone have any idea why my exmark would be sputtering and backfiring. I have approximately 150 hrs on this mower and I treat this mower like a baby meaning taking all precautions during startup and shut down. What would some possible causes be to this? I am very mechanically challenged so please in plain terms haha. Thanks before hand for any help and advice given.

    When it sputters if you apply some choke will it smooth out ?
    I'm going to lean towards a little water or trash in the carb. causing a lean run situation.
