    MTD mower starts great and then shuts off
    My riding mower starts up great and then shuts off after 30 seconds the fuel is running through the line fine The problem started while I was mowing and now I can't use it What might the problem be and what parts do I need to fix it

    Fuel in the line does not mean fuel to the carb or fuel to the cylinder. It does not tell us if the fuel is good either. I would start by making sure the fuel is fresh, then replace the spark plugs if questionable. Put a little bit of gas down the throat of carburetor to see if it starts if it does and dies you have a fuel delivery issue. If it doesn't you need to check compression, spark and many other possibilities. The most common failure on lawn equipment is bad fuel or rotten fuel left in carb.
