Customer Question

We have a JD X300R about 3 years now. We have an issue now that after cutting grass for 15 to 20 minutes the engine suddenly quits, no warning, nothing . Cutting grass or not. followed immediatly by a "backfire" sounds like a gun going off. Trying to start immediatly - no start. However waiting 30 to 60 seconds then starts uo again, no problem.
