Toro zx 5420 oil change


The lug is under the mower. There should be a square plug that is the oil drain plug. Disconnect the spark plug first then remove the oil drain plug. You should have the muffler facing up because oil will get into the cylinder and cause blue smoke when the engine starts if you don't.

Why does yardworks 173cc bs engine will start, run, for 2-3 seconds then stop


Bad gas. Drain gas and refill with fresh gas with Stabil. Old oil. Drain oil fill with fresh 30w oil, 16-18oz. Clean air filter and spark plug.. Relpace air filter if dirty. Saving $$$ on this simple tune up is not intelligent.

Hi michael, You have most certainly put in too much oil. Try draining a bit off and then clean the spark plug with some paper towel. Leave the mower level for a few hours and then try it again.

Toro ride on wont start


Battery required? Charge battery or replace. Replace air filter and spark plug. Dump out old oil and replace with 30w oil. Electric start may have a fuse blown. Dump out old gas fill with new with Stabile always added to gas. Try spraying starter spray in carb at air cleaner with filter removed. All mowers have a low oil sensor to prevent starting on low oil. Remove bowl from carb, should be full of gas. Pinch off fuel line with pliers or turn fuel valve off. Check float should be hanging down allowing fuel flow. Float up stops fuel flow.

How do I change the oil on my Toro Personal Pace mower? Do I need to remove some cover?


The oil drain plug should be under the deck. You probably have a bracket in the way that you need to remove. Once you remove the bracket you should be able to access the drain plug. Piece of advice do not cross thread the drain plug and do not over tighten it. You should only turn the drain plug 1/2 a wrench turn above finger tight.

After priming starts, runs and stops


If you over fill the oil your mower will not start until you remove excess oil. This should be checked first, This is a much easier fix.

Only tilt a lawnmower backwards toward the handle end (spark plug end raises) Other ways move the oil around to places it doesn't need to go. Now you probably have gas in the oil....check it or change it (milky looking or smells like gas..contaminated...might need changing anyway...You probably will have oil in the carb and it will blow smoke...You probably filled the oil breather with oil and it will drain down...causing smoke also. This was the wrong thing to do A 2 year old unit should be mechanically sound..Check the air filter, spark plug and carburetor for oil fouling. Remove the bowl on the carb to help get some of the oil out...it will leak gas when you do.
