The cap just pulls off but yes it will be tight if its the first time you have ever removed it to replace the nylon string. Use a small flat screwdriver to lever under the edge of the cap and pullng at the same time but be carefull not to break the plastic surround

First, remove the recoil assembly but dont disassemble!
You'll need about 3 1/2 ft. of the same size rope. Tie a knot into one end of the rope. While holding the pulley in place observe the direction the pulley moves when rope is pulled. Release pulley and cut and remove old rope. Continue winding pulley in direction rope would pull it. Do no wind too tight. Line up holes in recoil housing and pulley then push rope through pulley and out housing. Tie on handle and install recall in reverse order.

Non detergent, straight 30 weight.
Sometimes can be found labeled as "Tractor Oil". Otherwise, any premium 10w-30 I find in my experience with these stout 4-cycles to be just fine!
If breaking in engine from new, out of the box? Change oil with 10 hours on the clock with engine is still warm. You only need 3.2 Oz. to fill the crankcase!
So pour slowly. It is full when the trimmer is placed on a level workbench surface with the trimmer head dangling off the end. There is going to be a slight forward tilt away from the oil fill plug. Fill only until it just literally comes to the bottom of the oil fill plug with the trimmer laying flat on your workbench.
*DO NOT FILL IT UP WHILE HOLDING IT VERTICALLY!*
(I warned you. ;D )
Also at this time, clean and re-oil air filter and check your manual - these trimmers after break in require a valve lash adjustment. .005" @ TDC if my memory is correct....The manual I *think* states anywhere from .003 ~ .007 to be within spec. After break in, only need to adjust valves seasonaly. Regular oil changes @ 20~25 hours of run-time keeps them happy.

The starter recoil spring may have possibly broke or the rope is hung up somewhere on or in the pulley. A lot of these units are assembled using Torx (Star) head screws and disassembly requires a couple different sizes to accomplish. Take your time...you will see the screw heads, but reloading a starter spring for a trimmer is a little tricky and you may need help doing so, but you can fix this yourself.

SOURCE: Do you mix the gas
No. You do that for a 2-stroke engine. Your engine should have oil in the crankcase and you just need to check the level of it and add gas to it like a regular lawnmower engine.
