Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Is this a riding mower, or a walk behind mower?
Thanks for your response. Do you know the brand and model numbers for your engine?
Take a look at your hood. do you see a letter and some numbers there?
I may be able to determine which engine you have based upon the information on your hood.
You are very welcome. I needed your engine information in order to give specific information relating to your mower. In many cases, overheating can be caused by a timing issue, such as a partially sheared flywheel key.
You can also check to see if there is a restriction in your muffler.
