Over time, if the oil filter is not replaced, it collects all the dirt in the engine oil and gets clogged, rendering it less effective. It is thus recommended to change your oil filter every time you change your engine oil, in order to ensure the health of your engine.
Typically this happens when the engine is either out of oil or so low the oil pickup tube cannot reach the oil… But can also happen if the oil filter is DEFECTIVE.
One of the most important things you can do to maintain your small engines and tractors is to service the oil and fuel filters as needed.
The oil filter helps remove contaminants from your car engine`s oil that can accumulate over time as the oil keeps your engine clean. Clean motor oil is important because if the oil were left unfiltered for a period of time, it could become saturated with tiny, hard particles that can wear surfaces in your engine.
Every car has four main filters: the cabin filter, oil filter, fuel filter and air filter.
1. Get a new oil filter with every oil change. Most vehicles require an oil change every three to six months. Some manufacturers recommend replacing the filter with every other oil change, and doing so with each appointment prevents it from clogging prematurely.
Without the oil filter, harmful particles can get into your motor oil and damage the engine. Filtering out the junk means your motor oil stays cleaner, longer. Cleaner oil means better engine performance.
Automotive oil filters fall into two categories, full-flow and bypass. Bypass oil filters take about 10 percent of the oil pumped from the sump, filter it and then return it to the sump while the remaining 90 percent is delivered to the lubricated components.
Anti-drain back valve: The anti-drain back valve prevents oil from draining out of the filter when the engine is turned off.
Air filters are designed to prevent debris from entering the engine`s cylinders, where it would cause mechanical wear to your tractor and oil contamination. Without an air filter in place, the engine may also be sucking dirt and debris in at the same time.
The role of the oil filter is to remove impurities such as carbon residue and metal particles from engine oil. If you continue to use an oil filter after the recommended replacement time, the engine oil will become more viscous and the filter will become clogged.
Most diesel engines have two fuel filters: The primary one is found somewhere on the fuel line between the fuel tank and the engine, while the secondary filter is typically located near the engine.

Introduction. Oil filters are used to remove foreign objects from lubrication oil systems. Removing foreign particles ensures no unnecessary erosion damage occurs to downstream machinery parts, this is particularly important when fine tolerances between the machinery components must be maintained.

ANSWER : You haven’t supplied a lot of information but generally when this happens it is due t the mower being tipped the wrong way.
If you must look under the mower then tip it back with the handles to the ground and front wheel in the air.
Now to rectify your problem; The air-filter will probably be saturated with oil. It will probably be the cartridge type which is not serviceable. Purchase a new filter (take your old filter so the sale person can compare like for like). Before you refit the new filter, take out the sparkplug, it will probably be saturated in oil – wash it in petrol, let it dry then refit it. The engine should start and belch out great quantities of smoke. Don’t be alarmed this will burn away. Once the smoke has cleared, check the oil level, fit the air filter and mow your lawn.

Dont know what type of oil to use – Toro Power Lawn Mower
ANSWER : Put straight 30 weight motor oil in it. Not 10W30 or any multi-viscosity oil. Straight 30 weight motor oil. If you’re doing a complete oil change, then you may want to use Synthetic 30 weight, which will last longer between oil changes and also make your engine last longer (but it costs more too). Best of luck to you.James
