SOURCE: Just wondering if my ariens st350 snow machine

Hello. Actually, Many snow thrower manufacturers now recommend using synthetic motor oil particularly for subzero temperatures. Synthetic oil, such as Mobil 1 doesn’t contain any of the waxes that cause conventional oils to congeal in cold temperatures. As a result, synthetic oil makes starting easier and also prevent parts from running dry when a cold engine first starts. Synthetic oil also has higher film strength and stands up to high temperatures better than conventional oils. You’ll pay more for a quart for a full synthetic and you still have to change it as often as conventional oils, but you are giving your snow thrower engine the best chance for a long trouble free life.

SOURCE: Only one blade turns automatically on Ariens snow blower.

There is a bolt that goes through the center of the shaft that shears off if you hit something. You will need to line up the holes of the internal shaft with the auger tube and install a new bolt.

Noticed a small mount of red lube on the garage floor under the auger


Well, I'm not sure about snow blowers, as I've never owned one, but every other time I've seen red fluid leaking out of a machine it was transmission fluid (which is red by the way) or similar lubes. Check the fluid level with the dipstick, if it's low then top it up and check again later to see if that's the problem. If I had to make a guess, I'd say that a drive gear or similar seal has a small leak. If that's the case you could get a new seal pretty easy, putting it in may or may not be tricky, or, just top it up before you use it like I do with my wood splitter. Hope I helped, Grimm

Ariens 921013 has difficulty changing speed under traction. The lever wants to pull forward when I disengage it from the holding slot on the dashboard and will not let me reduce speed without disengag


It might be time to lube the shaft the bearing slides on that changes speed. If you pull the rear cover off it should be easy to spot. Some people use oil others use a little grease. I like synthetic grease as it won't drip. If you use oil remember to wipe up any excess and you don't want it getting on the flat plate the friction disc rides on or you won't have any traction at all.

Van used 2.5 quarts of oil in 1200miles no sign of oil burning or blue smoke at tail pipe. oil light comes on frequently 2004 dodge caravan


If there is no sign of oil consumption, then you have a leak some where. Un-noticed leaks are usually found at the rear main seal and leak as you are driving. If you crawl under the vehicle and closely inspect the area where the engine block meets the transmission you may find evidence of an oil leak.

Mtd snow blower,8hp 2 stage, 1995, Problem: oil leaking on axles, and on casing wear axle come out.wheel stop turning , no gear selection. could you direct me ???


The oil leak normaly would make the 'friction disc' inside the frame slip so as to not drive the axle.
Locate the oil leak
#1 engine crankshaft seal
#2 engine crankcase cover gasket
#3 engine overfull so that the excess oil is coming out of the crankcase breather tube and running down inside the frame

Have just bought a used ariens st1032. have no manual and wondering if unleaded gas and 10w - 40 oil will work on this machine?


assume it's 4-cycle engine. regular gas, and 10w-40 should be safe- might want to use single weight 30w oil. you won't need multi-weight if you're living in a cold climate- won't be using it in the snow! check oil level, and top-up when needed!
good luck!

2006 Saturn Vue AWD loses oil fast


First I'd find a different shop. $100 to look at it? I don't think so. Sounds like this may be a transmission issue.
