How to Remove Spark Plug From Lawn Mower

By teacherjon ; Updated September 21, 2017

Learn how to remove a spark plug to prepare your lawn mower for winter in this free lawn maintenance video from a yard work expert.


In this video clip, we will be removing and inspecting our spark plug. Our spark plug is located at the front of our engine underneath our spark plug wire. The first thing we need to do is wiggle that spark plug wire off of the spark plug. Then we are going to take a spark plug socket and slip that over the top of our spark plug and remove that spark plug from our engine. Now as we inspect this spark plug, there is a lot of carbon build up on it. You will notice that because the tip of it is black. An easy fix would be to go buy a new spark plug. A new one is just a couple of dollars and you can bring the old one in and they will switch it out with a new one.
