I’ve got a John Deere X300 that has started giving me problems. The only way I can get it to start is to hold my hand over the air intake. It will run for maybe 10 seconds and then start to die again. Put my hand over the intake and it will sputter back, run, and start dying again. Took the shutoff solenoid out, and it seems to be working correctly. Thanks in advance.

Check your intake gaskets. The one between the manifold and heads. I work one a couple years ago, and that's what I found. Had me stumped for awhile. Once I changed them, it ran like a champ.👍
