Small Engines Need Regular Maintenance

Joseph Coupal - Saturday, January 28, 2012

There are a lot of backyard technicians out there who can change the oil or perhaps an air filter on their power tools. Some of you even know a little bit more. You just need to find the small engine parts. If we don't have it, we can custom order almost any part

But if you're not a mechanic, and you have only changed the oil, have you noticed anything different about how your equipment's small engine is running?

Perhaps it is idling at a faster speed than it should be and you just can’t seem to slow it down. But it runs, so it’s no problem. Not so. When your equipment's engine runs faster than it should, it also runs hotter and uses more gas than it needs. Your carburetor needs a tune up.

Having your small engine tune-up regularly not only extends the life of the engine, but it helps it run more efficiently, saving gas too.

Your power tools were designed to run in a specific way, and maintenance keeps them in factory condition and running the way they were designed. If you want to maintain the life of your small engine, contact J&J Small Engine Clinic.
