j3rrymu3ll3r sounds like a gummed up carburetor. I'd check the float, needle valve and the jets to make sure that they are clean. This video should help you with that task. If you can tell us the make and model of that engine or the carb number we can probably find more information on that as well.

May also want to go into the tank and check that the inlet is not plugged and that the fuel lines are not kinked or damaged . it definitely sounds like a lack of fuel


j3rrymu3ll3r , I noticed you said you did not have a manual, link below is a manual for Troy-Bilt Lawn MowerTB200. Hope it helps.
