Does your engine have a low oil sensor on it? Does it shut off only when making turns or also on straight runs?

Also on straight runs I'm not sure about the low oil sensor but it does have oil in it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It mainly shuts off with in two minutes of starting it up
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.
So if you were to start it and just let it sit still it would die within a couple minutes?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes

I would check to see if this engine has a low oil sensor on it. If it does it could be that the sensor is not working properly. You could unplug it on most engines and go ahead and run the engine but if the oil does get low you run the risk of locking the engine up.
