Hi there

there are no published compression limits for kohler

the prefered method is to have the cylinders leak tested , because of the decompressor action built in while trying to compression test

but off the top of my head most machines would run best with a minimum of 100 psi or better
given that these have a compression ratio of 9:1

you could work it out

9:1 X 14.7 PSI ( 1 amtmosphere ) @ sea level = 131.00 psi

compression ratio = swept cylinder volume + clearance volume (@ tdc) divided by clearance volume

Have you checked for a bad head gasket?

Check the intake valve springs or the intake valve shafts to be sure they aren't stuck open. Another cause could be excessive carbon build up on the intake valve causing them to not seal.

If you've gone this far, you could try a compression leak down test. If you still have the push rods out, you can use or get an adapter that will allow you to pressurize the cylinder(s) with air by removing the spark plug. Apply 70-80 psi air directly to the cylinder (the cylinder may go to BDC (bottom dead center) but if you don't have any push rods, the valves can't open.

Listen carefully - if you hear air leaking out of the carb, it's a bad intake valve. If you hear air from the exhaust, it's an exhaust valve. If you hear air from the crankcase breather, it's piston rings.

Kohler 25 hp will try to kick over but acts like a low charge battery. turns over till it hits compression. new battery and starter. ?????


if it has a new battery and starter i would check all connections and check valve clearance. check and be sure you can see the compression release bumping on the valve also. if the compression release is broken you will need a new camshaft. just replaced one a few days ago.

Lincoln ranger 8 and kohler engine command 20. engine does not pull gas to carburetor. Putting little gas directly in carburetor; machine runs until finish gasoline inside carburator.


engines don't "pull" fuel to carb , it either gravity flows (tank over top carb) there or its pumped there , I do believe the kohler engines from 8 hp thru 25 hp use a vacuum activated fuel pump (three hoses on it) these do go bad over time and need replaced , also there are fuel filters on all these engines that need to be replaced seasonally they are not cleanable there disposable

What to do? I have a craftsman GT 5000 with a 25 HP Kohler and it will run for about 10 minutes and then start cutting out and die. I have changed the fuel filter with no resolve. What should I look at...


Make sure the choke is coming off. Check the compression.Many times the head gasket may leak when the engine heats up. Also check for spark sometimes the magneto can heat up and quit after running a while. See if it will run if you prime with a little fuel, if so ,some of the Kohler engines this size have a fuel pump that could be failing. Check for vapor lock. It takes air and fuel properly mixed, spark and compression any of these missing the engine dies.

I have 16 hp Kohler engine with a compression release not working,help.


i have a Kohler 16 Magnum opposed cylinder engine and it wont crank over with the spark plugs in it,battery and starter are both good,its an aluminum engine and i have seen several of the Kohler engines break the automatic compression release on the cam gear and they seem to lock up while trying to start,pull the plugs and the crank fine,Kokler is the most expensive engine i have seen and their parts are outrageously priced,old Kokler was a good engine,newer ones in my opinion are junk,i work at a small engine shop,i have seen new Kohler engines with a broken ACRs,i work at a second job,we got a new supervisor that worked for Kohler before her came to our plant,he said he worked customer service at Kohler and he heard complaints constantly from people using their engines and the returns were out the roof on their engines,what im saying is i wont ever but another Kohler unless itsm an old one,Thanks Tommy
