Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Does it quit? What engine is this? Is it losing power or shutting off? If it shuts off, the fuel solenoid in the carburetor may be dropping out, shutting off the main jet in the carburetor. When engine is cold, turn key on and off listening fro the click from the fuel solenoid. Then when engine dies, turn key on and off , listening for the click. No click, no fuel.
