Hello. My name is Tan.

Will the engine restart after it quits?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not sure. Want to know what it could possiblely be before I look at it.
Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.

Ok that is a hard question to answer. I can give you all the things that can cause the engine to quit. Loss of spark due to an ignition component failure, fuel starvation due to dirty carburetor, loss of fuel from failing fuel pump or blockage in the fuel supply to the engine.

Now we can do some testing to narrow down the possibilities.

Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.

The first thing you need to have done is a compression test to be sure the engine isn't seizing up which is another possibility. That was why I ask if it will start back up after it dies.
