I have to pour gas into the air cleaner it will run for a few minutes sometimes longer then it seems to choke itself and quits. I have a new spark plug and I did check the gas flow after the filter and it seems good. WHat is causing it to quit? Please help and Thanks!

Hello lusled2567

There are several reasons why the engine would quit after a few minutes.

Loose or corroded wires on the primary of ignition coil or stop switch.
Contaminated fuel
Idle set too low
Blocked air filter
Float level set too high
Weak spark
Incorrect spark plug gap

Check the following and see if there is any improvement.

Good luck !
