    NJT = New Jersey Turnpike. Part of our Interstate 95 (I-95) highway - one of the main North-South high speed, limited access roadways along the eastern coast. Yes, many places on our roadways can be like parking lots; generally near the urban centers and frequently at specific times of the day, or during certain weather conditions. Motor vehicle collisions can also create major delays.

    I-95 runs from Maine to Florida. For most of its run, it's toll-free, but there are toll sections and bridges as well, one of which is the section that runs through New Jersey - thus the name NJ Turnpike. That section basically runs between NY City and Philadephia, two of the most traffic-congested urban areas. So it's not so bad when going through Central Jersey. But the northern stretch just outside of NYC and the southern stretch that passes by Philly? Ew.

    Thanks all, makes sense now
    The m25 is the motorway around London. Still slow, and like you say accidents cause mayhem.
    It seems to me us brits can’t cope with a change in the weather.
    Oh we have a snow flake on the road, panic
    Instead of slowing down when it rains a lot of drivers here seem to want to rush. Are the rushing home so their cars don’t get wet
    I like to watch the Ice Road Truckers. I wonder what it would be like if Brit’s took on that job..

    Sounds like L. A. They shut down the pass into L. A. with only a dusting of snow on the ground.

    Pretty much.... BUT, first things first. Let's definitively determine whether it's a fuel or electronics problem. Get a spray can of Happy Sniff (engine starting fluid or ether). Lift the hood (cheat the interlock if yours has one to prevent the starting running of the engine with the hood up), remove the air cleaner and any piping so that you can see and easily access the actual throat of the carburetor. Start the tractor and at the first sign of it faltering, start spraying the starting fluid into the intake. If the engine picks up/runs more smoothly, then you have a fuel issue. If it still stalls, the problem is almost certainly spark/electrical.

    Once we know for certain which side of the equation we're trying to solve for 'X' on, we're half-way there.

    What make & model of tractor, what make & model of engine?

    I call it a lawn tractor but in fact it's a Craftsman riding lawnmower.
    It has a coil that makes spark.
    Will get some starting fluid when we go out later.

    According to what he just posted, it's a Craftsman riding mower. In the past the engine was built by Briggs & Straton and Kawasaki, but a few years ago they switched to MTD I think.

    @davidharmier60 is this a single cylinder or twin?

    actual model info off the tag would help. You can have a dozen engines, similar in outward appearance with the same maker's plate, that come from five different factories with different carbs, coils, etc....
