Your throttle cable is screwed up , you can probably fix it without buying anything. It probably just came unattached

sounds like the carb has a problem with one of the jets. You need to remove the carb and rebuild it.

Kohler Garden | Answered on May 09, 2015

No what the problem may be is the gas tank filter may be stopped up or the carburetor has varnished gasoline in it? In the future use an additive called stabil can be found at most auto parts stores or Walmart has it in automotive around the gasoline additives! It gasoline from varnishing and becoming gel like in the winter when you store your mowers weedeaters and tillers! Try getting gasoline to be pulled up by making sure gas flows from fuel lines first! If you don't have a primer button then you more than likely have a choke on the carb? Close the choke you can use ether sparingly to ease in pulling the rope frequently or a rag soaked with a little gas will allow vapors to get sucked in the carb assisting the engine to start

there is a piece next to the flywheel tha has a magnet and grabs resistence that may need replacing. I had this happen on mine. call your local repair shop and ask. I found the answer to mine on youtube and replaced it in about an hour,

Usually a solenoid or battery issue. may be the flywheel too. It does turn and the flywheel on top spins horizontally, yet it will not catch? if so then it may need a solenoid next to the flywheel which grabs resistence as the flywheel spins. cheap fix and on youtube.

You put in a question about your ride on. What is it you need?

Kohler 18 Hp OHV... | Answered on Aug 15, 2014

Check for the switching pulse at the coil input terminal. It should be less than the battery voltage but not zero, or pulsing in sync with the engine (if you know the spark dwell angle, you can calculate the voltage by multiplying it by the number of cylinders, dividing by 360 degrees, then multiplying by the battery voltage). If you don't get any indication that the coil is being switched to ground to generate the spark, your distributor contact (for mechanical ignition switches) , magneto or electronic ignition module could be the problem. Before changing whatever one of these you have, double-check the wiring to the coil - a misplaced, broken or loose wire will have the same effect.

with the ground wire off the coil and it turns over, you have a bad coil these engines are notorious for this. GOOD LUCK.....
