Why does my Snowblower start then stalls?

If it will re-start after a few minutes and then stall again, the problem is probably a fuel restriction - check the fuel filter or look for an obstruction somewhere in the fuel line (kinks, etc). If it stalls because it is flooding, check and/or replace the air filter and/or the spark plug.

Your 1994 Chevy pickup starts but won't continue running it's getting fuel ran good then didn't it is a sudden problem?

There is a common problem with Chevy. You have just described it. I have had this problem with a couple of them. a 1988 Pontiac 6000 2.4L and a 1995 Chevy Lumina 3.0L. The 6000 had a bad Ignition Control Module and the Lumina had a bad fuel pump. The Lumina started up fine, I drove for about 4 minutes and then it would cut off. The 6000 was going down the highway. I got off at an exit and it died. The next day I went to the car and it started right up. I drove it until it warmed up and then it would cut out again. I would start by taking the Ignition Control Module out and having it tester at an auto parts store. Most of them do bench tests while you wait usually for free. Good Luck.

What would cause 1998 Chevy lumina to lose power after running for few minutes?

If the loss of power is sudden in only a few minutes, turn it off. If it starts back up and runs fine for a few minutes the loses power, it could be fuel starvation, check the fuel system for pressure, and change the fuel filter. If it starts up with the loss of power, and the engine has to cool down before it runs fine again it could be something electrical that is overheating and breaking down. Check the ignition coils.

What is going on with your 1979 Cadillac drives fine for bout 10 min looses power struggles then stalls starts again then does the same every 5 minutes?

Why would a 1993 Grand Am runs for 10-15 miles but when you stop and try to go again it stalls unless you let it idle for 20 minutes?

Check for fuel pump pressure; you may have a fuel pump that is going out.

If a car starts then just stalls then starts up again with no problem?

There is most likely something in the gas tank. When the car starts the fuel pump starts sucking in fuel and when the trash gets to it the gas will not be able to flow through the clogged pump so the car stalls. When it stalls the fuel pump stops suction and the trash comes out allowing it to start again.

It sounds like your alternator is no longer recharging your battery. You probably need a new alternator.

Why does a 1987 Chevy Celebrity start up and run for about 10 minutes and then die and wont start for about another 10 minutes and then die again?

I had a similar experience with my 1987 Chevy Celebrity. In my car's case I replaced the ignition module and the crankshaft position sensor. Between the two the problem seems to be fixed.
