Craftsman lawn mower (917.389061) starts, sputters, revs, dies. new gas, sparkplug, air filter, and oil. Stars on first pull. Runs about normal for a second or two, then begins to sputter like it is going to die, then revs back up again, and finally dies. Sometimes it cycles thru this several times before dying. I have poured out and replaced the the gas, and oil, as well as replacing the air filter and spark plug, no change.

I know how frustrating this problem can be when you are trying to get outdoor chores done. I always keep my owner's manual on hand for these type of problems. Sometimes it can be helpful. I attached the owner's manual for your mower below, in case you did not have it. I also found a similar problem on a web site that may offer some solutions while you wait for the expert to answer. Hope that mower is working soon.
