Tip & How-To about Garden
Aside from changing the oil in your lawn mower, to prevent hard starts and possible complications in the future, regularly check the air filter.
Its an often over looked wearable part that can cause a bit of aggravation when starting, and possible rough running.
You want to make sure that it is not clogged with debris and not extremely dirty. You can have a fairly new filter or machine, but if its dusty, or dry where you mow, it can clog up fast.
When your air filter becomes clogged, it inadvertently chokes the engine causing it to pull too much gas into the engine which leads to flooding of the engine, and the engine not running as well or as efficiently.
In most cases the dirt can be cleaned out if the filter is not really old, and not intensely soiled.
So if your mower seems to be harder to start and it is recent, check the filter. You may be surprised.
