Customer Question

I have a Cub Cadet 19" Model 18M that is running erratically. It doesn't want to stay running when you push the choke in. I have changed the spark plug and the filter...any other suggestions?

It sounds like you have a carburetor that is stopped up. I would take the carburetor off and clean it good and see if that doesn't take care of your problem.
