Welcome to the site.

Can you tell me if its losing fuel or spark when it dies?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
I can't tell it just quits then starts backup after about an 1/2 hour
Expert:  Craig replied 9 years ago.
Well you will need to figure out if its losing fuel pressure or spark. There isn't anything that I can tell you without knowing what the engine is losing.
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
I'm not a mechanic,could you at leased tell me if you think its fuel or spark or just what it could be
Expert:  Craig replied 9 years ago.
If I had to guess, probably spark related. That is what I would be looking at first. You may have an ignition coil starting to go bad.
