Here are a few signs that your lawn mower’s engine or head gasket is blown:

  • There’s an oil leak.
  • There’s smoke coming from the exhaust.
  • The mower has low power and pressure.
  • Your mower fails a compression test, or there’s diminished compression.

A lawn mower technician can confirm if your lawn mower is blown. Contact technicians near you today to set up an appointment.
