Customer Question

Two questions please. I have a Kohler with an XT7 engine.
1. Where is the fuel filter? I have looked all over the unit and cannot find one.
2. I have fresh gas, fresh oil, a new spark plug - but when I try to start, it fires up then dies immediately then won't turn over until I let it sit a while. It ran excellent last season, then one day it started doing this. It's a good mower.
Thank you.
