Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!

What engine do you have? Kohler? Likely you have a bad coil/module, and it comes and goes when it gets hot.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I have checked the coil for resistance and ohm reading everything looked good. Are you saying this motor has a module that feeds the coil?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Can not call now I am still at work and not in front of the mower
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 5 months ago.

no, coil and module is same thing.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 5 months ago.

We don't need coil. Just do a spark test when it acts up.I think you will find a loss of spark, or erratic spark on one side.
