Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Model number of the engine? Twin or single cylinder? If twin, run a cylinder test. Loosen the spark plug wires, and with the engine idling, remove one wire at a time. If engine dies when a wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. You would want to check it for spark, and compression.
