What is the model number of your engine?

After your engine warms up and it stops running, have you tried checking the engine for spark?

When you remove the spark plug(s) to check for spark is the end of the plug wet?
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 those are old engines and can get worn out. In some cases you need to replace rings and/or piston. Also, might want to check seals. Like the head gasket.
