Drain plug is not necessary. Remove the dipstick and tip the mower to the side the dipstick is on and use the dipstick tube as a drain.

SOURCE: Can't find the oil drain plug on Troy Bilt with 5.5 Honda engine

You may want to look under the deck. They sometimes put them there. And if it is a self propelled, you will probably need to remove or loosen the plastic cover that protects the self propelled belt.

You are looking for a nickel sized plug that has a square peg. Use an extension piece for a socket set if you don't have the proper plug removal tool.

SOURCE: How do I drain the oil on a Briggs & Stratton Troybilt 725 series 190cc push mower?

  • 1) Lay your mower on its side.

  • 2) Find a square bolt head protruding from under the mower engine. Adjust the crescent wrench to the size of the bolt. Turn the bolt counter-clockwise until the bolt comes out and oil begins to drain out.
  • 3) Grab the square-headed bolt and quickly lay the mower over the oil capture pan. Wait about a minute to allow all the old oil to drain out of the engine.

  • 4) Prop the mower back on its side and tighten the square-headed bolt back into the oil pan hole on the base of the mower engine.
  • 5) Return the mower to its upright position. Unscrew the oil dipstick. Read your owner's manual for the proper amount of oil to add. If you no longer have your manual then slowly add the oil to the engine by pouring it through the funnel and into the oil dipstick hole. It usually take 20 ounces to fill a small mower engine, so pour in some oil and check the oil level with the oil dipstick occasionally until the oil is to the FULL line on the oil dipstick. Screw the oil dipstick back in once you have enough oil in the mower engine.

    I want to know where the oil drainage plug is on a 1994 Holden jackaroo

    I believe the 3.2 is a Honda/Acura engine and not a Isuzu engine. Are you talking about changing the engine oil or the transmission fluid? I ask because you state "the oil drainage plug" but later you mention the Automatic transmission.
    As for engine oil plugs, they are almost always found low on the engine oil pan, sometimes facing the front (like my Jag), to the side (like my Ford Ranger) or to the rear like my 90 Acura Legend 2.7L V6 did. Most have a bolt with a washer that should be replaced every time. If it doesn't look like a large hexagonal bolt head it could very well be a rubber plug that is pushed in. Not a good design in my humble opinion. If you change the oil be careful not to do it when the engine is hot as the oil is also quite hot. I believe in doing it when just warm, more drains out. I find it beneficial to drain about a quart out, put the drain plug back in and add a quart of Gunk or Snap engine oil slush, start it (but don't rev the engine & DO NOT DRIVE THE VEHICLE) and let it just idle for 15 minutes. Give it some time to cool then remove the drain plug and let it drain out. Next remove the oil filter. Always ALWAYS pour fresh oil into the new filter a couple of times before screwing it on, and spread a little oil on the little rubber gasket on the filter first. I recommend synthetic oil for any vehicle as it doesn't break down into coke (hard rock-like black stuff) like conventional oil does. Those coke deposits are engine killers. I like Mobile 1 extended fuel economy. Synthetic costs more but lasts longer. If using synthetic were to only extend the life of your engine by two or three years, I consider it well worth the added expense. It should reduce wear in the engine, keep it much cleaner, make it quieter, and give you better mileage because it's slicker (less internal friction).

    Describe your Yard - Man 160cc, 21" Self - Propelled Lawn Mower Problem i don't know where oil drain plug is

    You'll find most Briggs and Statton Engines have an oil drain plug directly on the bottom of the engine. It is square and can be removed with a 3/8" ratchet with no socket on it (you just stick the ratchet or ratchet with extension right in the hole and turn it CCW. When you put it back in, make it tight, but not too tight or you'll crack the block of your engine (trust me!). Some engines such as the Honda's do not have an oil drain plug and you need to just dump the oil right out of the fill spout. Awkward. Your engine will hold between 20 and 22 oz of straight 30 WT oil; do not overfill it. Put in about 20 oz. and let it sit for a few minutes then check it on your dipstick. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.
    PS: Always remove the spark plug wire before working on your engine! Turning the blade by hand could start your engine and cut your hand off!

    Where is the engine drain plug?

    It is always on the lower side of the oil pan on the "bulge".

    What is the pan right in front of the oil pan and has a pipe plug in it? What kind of oil goes in there and where do you put it in? I'm thinking it is the primary chain oil,but I'm not sure.

    I suggest you read your owners manual and get acquainted with your motorcycle. The engine oil drain plug & the transmission drain plug is something you should know. One is a 5/8 hex head vertical plug and the other is a horizontal plug.....The engine oil drain hex bolt is located on the right side of the motorcycle and is removed/installed horizontally.
    Transmission oil drain hex bolt is located on the left side of the motorcycle and is removed/installed vertically.

    How do I change the transmission oil? Where do I drain the oil from? Is their a filter to change?

    If you are asking about the automatic ... the drain plug is on the passenger side and can be reached without lifting the car. It seems like they put some sort of "loctite" type product on the threads as the plug was difficult to remove. You can't change all of the oil ... about 3 quarts can be replaced ... see the owner's manual for exact amount. You could do the drain & refill a couple of times if you want to do a more thorough oil replacement. You might start by not putting all of the oil back in and check the level as you don't want to overfill. One of the *long* neck funnels is useful for adding the new oil thru the dipstick opening. There is no filter that you can replace. Honda only recommends their autotrans fluid however I used the Redline synthetic ATF that meets their specifications.

    How to change oil In a craftsman lawn mower, that has a honda engine. Misplaced my manual. Have decided to change my own oil rather than have it serviced every year I was doing a number of lawns so I had...

    Look for a drain plug under the deck in the bottom of the engine (under the deck) known as the crankcase housing. Drain plugs come in different forms, but you will know it when you see it. IF there is no plug on the engine bottom, then check for a small plug on the side of the engine (above the deck) with a square head. That would be removed and the mower tilted that way to drain the oil. If no plug on the side of the engine then the oil will have to be drained out the oil filler tube. Remove the dipstick and tilt the mower that way to drain the oil.

    I can't find an oil drain plug on a honda 5.5hp engine.gvc 160.

    The engine drain plug is on the main (square) base part of the cylinder block. I think it is 10mm. There is a compression washer to seal it aswell so it might need a bit of extra pressure to start it undoing. This should drain your block almost completely.
    For diagrams go here, you will need the engine serial number and prefix.
