should i change oil in my lawn mower spring or fallThe question, should i change oil in my lawn mower spring or fall, is actually a little more complicated that one would think. Your lawn mower’s instruction booklet will tell you how often you should change the oil based on the number of hours the engine is running. Most instruction booklets also suggest that the oil should be changed a minimum of once per year if not more often. Consumers with a small lawn who may run their lawn mowers for less than 30 minutes per week can get away with annual oil changes.

Consumers with larger lawns may need to change the oil in their lawn mowers twice a year or even more often. If the oil in your lawn mower is getting black or more than a year old, you should change the oil before using the lawn mower further. Check the level of oil in the engine often and monitor the color each time as well.

Should I Change Oil in My Lawn Mower Spring or Fall

Our personal suggestion is to change the oil near the beginning of the season in the spring. By changing the oil at this time, your engine has fresh oil that has not degraded over the winter with the engine contaminants. Run the engine for five or ten minutes to warm up the oil and then drain the warm oil from the engine.

Add the proper amount of oil with the recommended viscosity. Your booklet for the lawn mower will tell you what kind of oil to use and the viscosity. Follow the oil changing instructions provided. Changing the oil on a regular basis in the spring will ensure that your lawn mower engine has many years of operation to provide to you.
