Replacing your lawn mower air filter is one of the most important and easiest things you can do to extend the life of your small engine. Essentially, if your small engine air filter is clogged, your engine can't breathe, and that can cause poor engine performance. The 3 main types of small engine air filters are pleated paper, foam, and dual element air filters.
It is recommended that pleated paper air filters and foam pre filters on the dual element types be replaced at the beginning of the season as part of your regular maintenance. Consult your owner's manual to see the manufacturer's suggested replacement interval for your air filter. If dirt and debris can't be dislodged from your paper filter after tapping it lightly on a flat surface, or your foam filter is torn or can't be washed clean, replacement may be your only option.
