Why does it blow white smoke (when running)?


First check the oil level. If it is too high oil will push past the rings causing the white smoke. If the oil has not been changed for too long the oil has thinned out and should be changed.Do not use motor oil that does not contain lead. It is normally sold as lawn mower oil. It is 30 weight nondetergent oil and contains lead to properly lubricate the engine If the oil level is proper it is time to have the motor cylinder honed and a larger piston and rings fitted. this can be expensive. It could be cheaper to replace the mower

Transmission oil drain


it should be in the owners manual for the mower. I would say its gonna be a heavy gear oil. A local true-value or anywhere that works on lawn mowers should know about what kind

What type of oil and gasoline do you nee d to run Craftsman 6.5 lawn mower?


generally all 4-cycle lawn mower engines are tuned to use regular unleaded gas ,(I personally use mid or high grade unleaded)....and for engine oil use strait 30 WT engine oil...... I often put a dash of fuel system cleaner in each gallon of lawn mower gas,it is not absolutely neccessary but seems to help moisture stay out of gas..(DO NOT USE HEET or other methenol based fuel additives for this can cause overheating or scoring of piston and cylinder...but rather use a petroleum based additive,this allows the small amounts of moisture in fuel to pass through the carbeurator without clogging filters or fuel system for smoother running)..also...if you put lawn mower up for winter it is always helpful to use a fuel stabilizer such as "STABIL" or other such products (follow directions for use) and be sure to change the crank case oil in the spring before using....this will give you much longer life from your lawn mower...
Keep air filter clean!!!..... Happy mowing!!!....so, the answer?...regular unleaded and 30wt engine oil...if you would like..they have special engine oil for 4-stroke engines at most hardware and walmarts n such...but is just expensive 30wt oil... Enjoy your day,Todd
