Where is oil plug on poulan pro 500 mower

It may not have one. Some newer models you can only suck the oil or tip the mower after removing gas on its' side.

Push ball gets sucked in after 3-4 minutes of running always restarts and runs

I assume you mean the primer bulb is imploding? I would check my gas cap by running it with the cap removed and see if it still happens. Sounds like you may have a plugged vent in the gas cap, causing a vacuum problem in the lines.

I have an older Poulan Pro trimmer,model165,SN 95182n,I can't get it to prime with the ball.The only trouble I have had since I bought it.

Means you have a hole somewhere in the fuel system that is affecting it from priming when you push the button. I would replace the primer bulb or check the fuel line that sucks the gas out of the tank when you push the bulb. One of those two will be your problem most likely.

My 625 self propelled will start as long as i am using the prime button, when i stop priming the carb. it will stop

I suspect your primer bulb has a pin hole in it and is sucking air thus limiting the fuel to the carb.

My Poulan P3314 primer won't take in fuel or push it out.

the vinyl primer button on your carb shoots fuel into the crankshaft space. when you pull the rewind air and fuel in the crankshaft area is sucked into the combustion chamber. when the magneto reaches almost top dead center, the high voltage fires the spark plug. if there is an air leak in the gasket that surrounds the crankshaft, the air/fuel mixture will be way off. flooding will occur and the plug will get saturated. remove the whole back of your engine and clean the mating surfaces. now use high temp permatex and run a bead all around the gasket surface. tighten all the bolts - screws. push the primer button twice and try starting the engine.

Is the air filter on my lawn mower is washable?

You can do both. Just make sure that if you wash it with your hose you let it dry out EXTREMELY well before putting it back on your system

Hi... I have a Poulan PRO Quantum xnp 6.75. Garage kept, unused approximately 2 yrs. Added fuel, primed & mower started but then shut down immediately. Then fuel began leaking from the primer button. I'm a single mom & CANNOT afford to have anyone fix this. However I am attempting to repair myself. PLEASE.... If you have any suggestions &/or solutions I would LOVE to know.
