Question about Garden

Lawn mower runs and then putters down, won't die but runs slow.

Murray gas lawn mower runs and then putters down, won't die completely. Also some gray smoke out of the exhaust. Seems like it might not be getting air, or the oil is wrong. I got it from someone who left it sitting in their garage all winter, with the gas tank filled low. I put in new gas but did NOT drain the old gas and added oil. But not much improvement.

Lawn mower chugging


better late than never, I have the same mower

there is no throttle control on these mowers, if you look under the air filter the throttle is balanced by a spring pulling in one direction and a lever controlled by engine speed. if the spring breaks or falls off the lever will wiggle back and forth, more gas if the engine slows, less if it speeds up. you end up going fast/slow/fast/slow etc.

The tension spring slows the switching down and smooths out the engine speed.
