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.

I have a poulan pro 550 series B&S 158cc push mower. it sounds like a moved the choke when I went under a bush, because its running at a lower rpm. However, I can't find a manual choke.


The first thing I would do is , look at the front of the mower. On your front right side is your air filter. Remove the air filter, I believe that coincidently your air filter got to the point where it couldn't breathe anymore, meaning clogged to the point of choking. You can tell by putting it up to sun light and looking through it. If it's very very dirty , it needs to be changed. Also if there is a choke, it would be just behind the air filter. If it blocked off the end of the carburater then the choke is on. If this is the case then follow the rod that moves the choke. Possibly it was bent when you went under the bush. I believe you will find that your problem lies with a dirty air filter.

I have a Poulan PRO 550 series that I just bought 4 weeks ago. It won't start. The oil is at a good level. There is plenty of gas. Everything was checked and it still won't start. I am so disappointed. Has...


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.
