Running an engine with no exhaust back pressure can burn up your exhaust valves ... donno if that's the problem but if the valves got distorted they could have damaged the seats when restarting ~~~ may be something simple so valves would be the last thing I would check... good luck

Begin with the easy things. Pull out the ohm meter and begin checking spark plug wires, plugs, coil, IACV, etc. You may also want to check the fuel pump pressure. As tom (above) stated, running an engine with no back pressure from a muffler is not the thing to do.
