Hello:

You can Locate a Breakdown that will show you the Location of the Oil Fill Cap at the Following Site Addy.
https://lookup3.toro.com/partdex/default.cfm
Is this a 2 Cycle or 4 Cycle Engine?
If a 2 Cycle Engine, then the Oil is Mixed into the Gas and Poured into the Tank. If a 4 Cycle, then there is a Crankcase and Oil is Added to the Crankcase through the Oil Fill Cap.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Respectfully

John

Have a GTS 5.5 here,and cannot find the drain plug in order to change the(OLD) oil. Had the blade and cover off,and saw no bolt or plug. Also didn't see a plug on the side. Any help appreciated.


Well If You Cant find drain plug [should be a square drive]

Then I would turn the thing upside down [empty gas tank first of course]& drain it thru the filler plug. Perhaps the drain is an inset hex bolt and you must REALLY clean the underneath, dig around for it!

Brught a Kaweasaki HE130A edger. Seller told me that it was two stroke. Looking at it appears to be 4 stroke. Tank filler cap says gasoline only. Is it 2 or 4 Stroke? Regards Kevin


Gasoline only usually means 4 stroke.
2 stroke requires a mixture of gasoline and 2 stroke oil'
Look for an oil filler cap on the equipment, no oil filler cap means 2 stroke.
If you have an oil filler cap there will be a dipstick therefore your kit will be 4 stroke.

Hope this helps'

Where is the oil plug underneath the mower?


Depending on what engine is on your Toro lawnmower, there may not be a oil plug under the mower deck. A briggs and stratton engine will have one, but if the unit has self propel then you will have to move the guard over the self propel cable. This is a 1/2 in bolt, you will also have to loosen the other bolt to swing the guard around.
On a Kawasaki or Honda, and even if you have a Tecumseh engine then just start the mower up for a few minutes and let the engine oil get warm, then shut the engine off and then lay the mower on the side that has the oil filler cap and put your drain pan under the oil filler cap. You can then drain the oil out of the oil filler tube. You can also do this with the briggs and stratton engine. I find this to be a very convenient way to change the oil.
Then put fresh oil back in the unit. I always suggest to put the engine manufacturer's oil back in the unit, or if that is not available then use another oil from another engine manufacturer. IF you use automotive oil, the oil will break down faster since the heat level for the engine on car is less than that of the engine on your lawnmower. The engine has a water cooled design, that keeps the engine temperature from raising over about 250 degrees F. The engine temp on your lawnmower can get as hot as 400 degrees F in the summer heat and being run for 30 minutes or longer.
A longer answer than you had hoped but I hope the information keeps your lawnmower running well for many summers to come. :)

When I try to remove the cap to add oil in my 1997 silhouette van the cap turns a revolution or two then stop. The cap won't come off until I keep turning, and then the cap and filler neck come off as if...


You are correct, sound like the filler cap is to tight, it happins, grab the filler tube and cap and remove the old cap and replace with a new one, you might have to break the old one to get it off.

How to change the differential fluid on a GL1500SE


HI , ON THIS MODEL YOU HAVE A DRAIN PLUG AT THE BOTTOM, THIS WILL BE A 12 OR 14mm BOLT HEAD, REMOVE THIS BOLT AND THE OIL WILL DRAIN OUT. ON THE SIDE OF THE DIFF SLIGHTLY HIGHER UP YOU WILL SEE A 17mm SPANNER SIZED CAP THIS IS THE FILLER CAP, .SO UNDO THIS,IT MAY BE TIGHT AS IT HAS A RUBBER SEAL INSIDE IT, IF IT IS VERY TIGHT YOU MUST TAKE CARE NOT TO ROUND OF THE NUT AS IT ONLY ALUMINUM, A SIX SIDED SOCKET OR SPANER IS ,BEST.SOMETIMES A LITE TAP TO THE FACE OF THE NUT HELPS LOSEN IT. THE NUT ON THE TOP OF THE DIFF IS A BREATHER ONLY AND SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED AS A FILLER, OR LEVEL WHEN YOU ARE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE OLD OIL OUT INSPECT THE SEALING WASHER ON THE DRAIN PLUG BEFORE REPLACEING IT.
USEING THE CORRECT GRADE OF OIL FOR YOUR BIKE, GENTLY FILL THE DIFF, UNTILL IT BEGINS TO OVERFLOW,, ALOW SOME TIME FOR THE OIL TO SETTLE AND TOP UP WITH SOME MORE OIL UNTIL IT IS FULL AND NO LONGER DRIPS OUT OF THE FILLER, THIS IS THE CORECT LEVEL. REPLACE THE CAP TAKE CARE NOT TO OVERTIGHTEN AS CAP WILL SPLIT. WIPE AWAY ANY SPILLED OIL AND THE JOB IS FINISHED, HOPE THIS HELPS YOU, PAUL

Toro sprewing oil


The filler spout tube may have pulled out of its seat push and twist to reinsert it down. if the oil is over filled you must drain some out to return it to its correct oil level, if it did pull out of its seat the small bolt holding the filler tube in place may have loosened up and fallen off it must be replaced if this happened.
