My 15 hp engine on a lawn tractor will run minutes then

Customer Question

My 15 hp engine on a lawn tractor will run for 15 minutes then starts to miss and will finally stop running. I've checked the fuel line and filter and didn't find an issue.

Hello, will it start right back up?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If I wait for a few minutes it will restart but start to miss right away

It could be the coil. Have a spare plug or spark tester with you and as soon as it quits check for spark. If you do have a tester see if it will run with it connected to the plug and watch to see if the spark disappears.
