I have a Snapper Push Mower. Yesterday my wife mowed the front yard while I was at work. Said the Motor lunged the whole time motor was on. She ran old gas through it. Im surprised it even ran. Now I cant start it and it seems to backfire slightly. I have cleaned the Carb. drained and put new gas in it. Timing??? Gas??? Operator error???

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Did you replace the spark plug? It may be fouled, and just needs to be replaced!

Can't get a new plug for another hour so I'm not sure yet if that will work
