Engine Breather lawn tractor
« on: March 24, 2014, 07:13:33 PM »
Goodevening, I currently have a riding mower with a Kohler CV15 engine.  Problem developed and I am at odds.  The engine does not run smooth, it sounds like its popping in rappid consesion.  Replaced plug, air & fuel filters resulted in no change.  Also when I engauge the mower blades the engine almost dies.  However, I noticed when I remove the breather hose from the value cover the engine smooths out.  The hose is connected to the base of the air filter.  I understand the reason form the breather, but can not determine what my problem is.  I hope  someone has the answer to what is the fix and why when the hose is disconnected does the engine run better and the mower blades can be engauged without loss of power.  Thank you for any help you can provide.  Joe Stella

Is the breather hose plugged? Is the air filter housing where the breather hose connects plugged? How is the oil level? Any smoking or oil consumption?
