try changing the sparkplug, if that does'nt work remove the carb and clean
completely paying close attention to the brass bowl bolt. make sure the two
intersecting passages are clean.

A starts & stalls condition won't have anything to do with the spark plug, but by all means, if it's original replace it. You will have a carburetor related problem though. Remove it and clean thoroughly using a kit for whichever particular engine you have. If you supply the engine ID #'s, I'll give you the part number(s) you'll need. You'll just have to go to your local repair shop and purchase the parts.
