2 stroke oil is added to the fuel at 25:1 ratio approximately as this varies from engine to engine please check specs. There should be no oil in block of note as there is no oil circulated as in 4 stroke engines

I have a Ryobi 4-cycle S430 weedeater. Do you use regular gas? If so,what type of oil do you use?

A 4-cycle engine requires regular gasoline whereas a 2-cycle engine requires oil to be mixed with the gas.
A 4-cycle engine requires regular gas in the gas tank and engine oil in another tank. Your owners manual will tell you what grade of oil to pour into the oil tank compartment of the weed-eater.
A 2-cycle engine requires regular gas plus a certain amount of 2-in-1 oil mixed with it. The oil that is mixed into the gas container and shaken together to "mix" the gas and oil before pouring into the gas/oil tank helps to lubricate the moving parts of the engine like the piston movement between the piston and the pistons' wall known as the cylinder wall. Also the oil aids in the creation of a tight seal which causes compression to occur that is responsible for optimum operation of the engine itself. It also provides lubrication to the piston rings and reduces friction as the piston rings push against the cylinder wall.
4-cycle engine oil can be purchased at any oil store like Canadian Tire/Sears/Napa Auto Parts. Just ask for oil for your weed-eater and let them know that your engine requires 4-cycle engine oil. I am sure the service clerk will point you in the right direction.
I hope this helps!Have a great day!

Oil poured from botton as well as housing unit.

housing unit? are you refering to the engine block? If oil comes out as fast as you pour it in, check your drain plug in the oilpan, holes in your oil pan. Did you run over something recently?

Usually engines hold their oil unless you've run over a big rock and knocked a hole in the oil pan.

drain plug has fallen out more than likely.

Changing the oil

Buy four quarts of oil, oil filter, you'll need couple sockets, oil pan, jack stands, hoist, and strap wrench.

(1) Park vehicle on flat surface.

(2) Open hood and unscrew oil filler cap.

(3) Take oil pan and yourself under vehicle and unscrew drain plug to allow old oil to drain out of vehicle.

(4) As oil is draining from vehicle, go ahead and prepare new oil filter by applying some oil to the rubber "O" ring on new filter. Thats therubber ring on the filter that butts up against the block when thefilter is screwed and tightened into place.

(5) Now that the new filter is ready to be used go ahead and put drainplug back into vehicle oil pan at this point all old oil should havebeen drained out.

(6) Go ahead and use oil filter wrench to take off old oil filter, youmay be able to use your bare hands to take this off as these arejust hand tightened let old oil drain from oil filter housing for a fewminutes. Wipe area clean with a rag before putting new filter on. Nowyou can install new oil filter remember to hand tighten new filter onlyyou won't need to use oil filter wrench to tighten oil filter

7) Now you can add new oil by pouring it into the same place you took off the oil filler cap.

(8) After pouring in oil check oil dipstick to make sure you havepoured the proper amount, this is usually done by making sure new oilis at the top of of the crossed section that is at the bottom of thedip stick.

I cannot find the oil filler cap on my old toro. can you help me?


You can Locate a Breakdown that will show you the Location of the Oil Fill Cap at the Following Site Addy.
Is this a 2 Cycle or 4 Cycle Engine?
If a 2 Cycle Engine, then the Oil is Mixed into the Gas and Poured into the Tank. If a 4 Cycle, then there is a Crankcase and Oil is Added to the Crankcase through the Oil Fill Cap.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

How to drain liquid chlorine?

Get as much as you can out with a towel, then flush the rest with cold water. Just pour it in and dry it out with a towel until you are able to pour water in it and it go out the dispenser like normal. After you have gotten the dispenser cleaed out you will need to get the detergent out of the machine before using it. Start a cycle with cold water. Let it start washing, when you see suds forming pour in a little vegetable cooking oil. This will kill the suds. Keep doing this through the cycle. After the suds are gone and the cycle is done, run it through another cycle with hot water. If you have no suds you are done. If It still suds up by the end of that cycle, run the cold wash and vegetable oil again.

You should be ok by running one cold and one hot, just watch it and add a little oil to kill the suds.

The cooking oil trick works with dishwashers too if you ever put the wrong detergent in them.

Please reply if you need any more help.
