I was just mowing along and it started losing power and popping. I shut it off for a few minutes to let it cool off and it will restart with no problems, it’s still not running right and making an occassional popping sound. I have since installed new spark plugs,still same problem. Sometimes it seems as if it is running on one cylinder. My next thinking is that it is probably the ignition coil. Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem ? Any ideas/help will be greatly appreciated because the grass here in KY is growing so fast with all this rain, you can almost hear it growing, Thanks

ANSWER : Check compression, should be over 90psi to start. And check spark. The loud pop I am going to assume came from the exhaust, which if you lost spark would cause excess gas to ignite. Causes of no spark, bad coil, or defective and or damaged safty swith.
