How to Tune Up a Push Lawn Mower

Don't be scared by doing your own lawn mower tune up. Just a few simple tune ups will need to be finished before you start your mowing season. The tools you will need for this project include a cleaning brush, clean oil, spray lubricant, air filter and a spark plug. To begin, remove the grass catcher and brush off any grass clippings. Disconnect the spark plugs. Use a spray lubricant and spray all moving parts. Next change the air filter. If your mower has a sponge filter, clean it with soap and water, then lubricate it with some oil, and replace. Using a socket wrench replace the spark plug and reconnect the wire. Performing these simple tune ups will not only make your mower last longer, but will make for a great mowing season.
