    When i start up my lawn mower it runs fine for a while then it stops. So i checked the gass and there was over half a tank. THen i checked the oil and it was ok. so i primed it again and it started up then after a little while the mower stoped working again. asw long as i reprime the mower it will start. What could be the problem? it is a push mower. :help:

    check the primer bulb for cracks. if it is cracked and sucking air that can cause it to die also. agree with the air filter and cleaning the carb also.
