Customer Question

T.v. generac worked great yesterday however today will only run 5 minutes and shut off. Checked oil and coolant and they are full. Generator is hard to start and when it does start it only runs for a few minutes and shuts down.

There are actually 3 filters on that unit.

Fuel filter is 0D8914.

Oil filter is G0709390126.
