We need to determine if our problem is fuel related, or ignition related.

Expert:  Donald replied 3 months ago.

If you have some carburetor cleaner in a can, or starting fluid, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor, to see if your engine will start right back up, after it shuts down, without you have to wait awhile.

I have no way of knowing what you have already tried. This is only a starting point, for troubleshooting our problem. Keep in mind that I cannot see or hear your engine. I must troubleshoot, in order to pinpoint a problem. I do hope all goes well for you. Have a great day!
