RUUD Gas Furnace Malfunction

I have a RUUD Model UGDJ-IOEAMER Gas Furnace that shuts off the gas supply once the ignitor coil has lit the incoming gas. The system will recycle this process several time before it locks down the system. Can anyone help me to troubleshoot the problem so I can fix it. I am successful after quite a few attempts to keep the gas flow open and heat up the house but obviously something is wrong!

You probably have a dirty flame sensor probe. A DIY job. You have one if you see one lone thin wire that heads in to the combustion chamber. Often they are also easy to get to. You unscrew just one screw that holds it in place, remove, and polish it up with steel wool or a scotchbrite pad, and reinstall.
