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.

You can only clean it if it has a replaceable (fabric-type) filter...If it is paper, it is disposable and will have to be replaced if bad.

tilt the mower down by the handle, and underneath on the bottom of the motor you will find a drain plug. it has a 3/8 square hole in it. This is the oil drain plug.

Your carburetor needs a good cleaning or a rebuild kit, depending on its condition once opened up. There are tiny holes (jets) in there that easily get clogged or gummed up with today's crappy gas (ethanol). This is the problem with 90 percent of the machines I work on or fix. If you don't know carbs, then I recommend you take it to a professional and have the carb done (30 to 40 USD, probably), but it should run like new, once this is properly done. If you are a "do it yourselfer". then you can find plenty of videos on youtube to help you get started. Just pay close attention to what goes where when you take the linkage apart. Trust me, do not leave it to memory; take photos. Best of luck to you.
