10w30 Synthetic oil is what is best for any air cooled engine. You can also use straight 30w.

Without knowing what engine or what kind of mower it is this is just a guess. But, it is possible that your flywheel and/or coil have gotten rusty and are not getting the conact that they need to make the spark. Try removing the cover and sanding the flywheel and coil. If it is a riding mower with a key switch there are many possibilities including anything from a bad switch to one of the safety switches.
