Gotta Lawnboy with a Tecumseh engine that starts up real easy and runs fine. When I stop it to empty the bag, it will restart but only run for about a minute and sputters and dies and I can't restart till it cools down like the thing is vapor locked or something. I put a new air filter and it has clean gas I don't know what else to do, it's a puzzle. need a bit of help here :confused:

Welcome to MLMF!

It sounds like it could possibly be loosing spark, you can pick up spark plug testers at auto part stores for pretty cheap. That is what I would check first and go from there.

Another thing to you could do is to check to make sure that your gas cap vent hole is not plugged.

Again, welcome to the site!
