Default Lawnmower Help

My lawnmower is only about 5 years old. Lately it has been taking longer and longer to start. I have to pull and prime like mad for like 10 minutes. Once its started I starts and stops fine. Anyclue what this could be?

Thanks
Chris

Hey Shadow...

Did ya ever do any maintenance on the mower. I think I went six years without replacing the oil on one of my mowers. That little engine must have hated me.

Get her running and spray some gum-out down her throat and that should help clear out some of the build-up in there.

Or... call a landscaper. That'* what I did!
