remove spark plug wire from plug,tip machine on its side.look under blade for a threaded plug with a square head where bottom of motor protrudes through deck.on most models you can simply tip machine over far enough to allow oil to drain out the dipstick[filler]tube.

Check air filter, replace if needed.
Check engine oil level and condition. Add/change as needed.
Check spark plug. Clean and re-gap if needed (.030 gap)
Drain the fuel and replace with fresh premium grade gasoline. If your local station has a notice on the pump regarding Ethanol content, drive to another station!

Most owner's manuals specify 89 octane or higher and most warranties become void if E85 fuel is used.

And finally, Oxygenated fuels are not your mower's best friend. :-)

Hope this helps.

How to change the oil in my 550 self propelled push mower. Where is the oil plug? How often does the spark plug need to be changed. We've had ours nearly 2 years with lite use, and no maintenance.


There is no drain plug on that model , one has to lift up the entire machine ,tilt and drain the oil out of the filler spout. Change plug once a year - Champion# J19LM

Poulan 550 Series push mower won't pull start


Hmmmm,,and the plot thickens. Without seeing the unit, i would have to think that when you pull the engine control cable bar, its not releasing the brake that sits against the flywheel. These cables do stretch. Pull the engine cover and you will see the brake against the flywheel. Pull the engine control handle and watch and see if brake is releasing. If its not, replace the cable.
That would be my bet. I hope this is of some help.

Option #1:If its less than 90 days old return it to walmart.
Option #2: drain the oil and refill with the correct amount. Contact Puolan or a poulan dealer for a manual.

There are several possibilities for not starting. Water in the gas, Carburetor jet clogged ; Spark plug needs replacing, air filter needs replacing, or you have old gas. Or if you have hit something the flywheel key may be sheared. Hope this helps.
Good day.

Engine started smoking real bad, it still starts


Could be just a head gasket, also could be rings. Could also be oil in the gas or bad gas overall. Empty out the gas, change the oil, and try again. If it does the same thing take it to service shop.
