Oil leaking out on yardman mower

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.

What type oil and how much do you have to keep in it

SAE 30 for the oil
48 ounces is about right, but I would be sure to check the dipstick as you are filling and not just dump a full 48 in.

I have a yardman 6.25 hp lawnmower what type of oil do i put in it? the oil is seperate from the gas. Sorry i am unsure can u please help me.

Put in about 20 oz. of SAE 30HD oil. I recommend synthetic, and if you use that, you can use a 10W-30 oil. Remember, a quart bottle is 32 ounces, so DON'T overfill.

Looking for carb settings for yardman gas trimmer ym 400 31cc won't rev up , dies

Most carburetors on the 2 stroke trimmers are all the same. They are of the diaphragm type. I would like to send you to a tutorial/information tuning page for this type of carburetor. If you do choose to adjust it yourself, pay real close attention to the before and after settings on the screws you turn. These carbs are extemely sensitive and respond likewise. I use an automotive type plastic wire connector lightly tapped down onto the unconventional heads of the L and H mixture screws to turn them. The plastic on the connector will expand a little and grip the screw head to allow you to turn it without any damage to the screw. Please view this tuning guide.

Lawn trimmer runs but won't rev

You need to clean the carburetor. Remove & disassemble. Use a Den Tek Brush,
(, to clean small portals in carb. Spray carb. with carb. cleaner. make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debris. Reassemble and start. If this doesn't work, buy a carb.kit and replace the needle valve, gasket(s), small screen, & diaphragm.
