Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

Won't start I changed the oil in my toro 22 inch mower. I overfilled it and drained it down to where it should be on dip stick. Now the mower won't start When I pull the cord it catches and just about rips my arm off. What's the problem?

The blades may be locked. remove the spark plug cap so the mower won't start unexpectedly. tilt the mower on its side, air filter facing upwards. work the blades until they loosen and turn freely.

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!

I put too much oil in the mower over the past couple months. Two days ago the mower began steaming. I shut it down immediately. Today I did an oil change and cleaned the mower up but after I started it,...


If you already changed oil and it is at proper level on dip stick let it run for about 5 minutes to burn out any excess oil in cylinder, if it continues to smoke you probably blew a gasket or seal on engine.If that is the case you are looking at buying a new mower unless if it under warranty or you have a cheap mechanic.

Oil change instructions and oil recommendation (lost manual)


Hello, oil to use in the engine depends on engine if it is a Kohler you will want to use 10w30 approx 2qts. The Briggs & Stratton engines use HD30 or SAE30 approx 1.5qts. Use the dip stick to ensure you have the right amount and don't over fill.

To change the oil:

  • run engine about 10 minutes to warm up oil so it flows better
  • at the bottom of the dip stick there is either a valve or plug
  • open the valve or plug and let the oil drain (I use an old gallon oil container with a funnel) leave the dip stick out
  • while the oil drains; change the spin on oil filter
  • once all the old oil has drained replace the plug or close the valve
  • wipe down the funnel and use it to refill the new oil
  • use the dip stick to ensure proper fill level
I also recommend that you replace the air filter at the same time, if the engine can't get air is can't run efficiently.

If this is helpful please vote yes, Thank You!!

Help. I need to drain the oil from my PR600y21RP mower but cannot figure out where/how to drain the oil!!!


You should be able to turn your mower on it's side ( the side opposite the muffler) and look on the motor hub within a couple of inches of the drive shaft and find the oil drain plug on the bottom of the engine ( usually a four sided square end pipe type plug ). once you have found it, turn mower back on it's wheels and start and run it long enough to warm the engine oil (5 min. should work). Shut the mower down...have a flat pan capable of holding the oil volume (a little more than a quart) ready to catch the oil. Turn the mower back on it's side and with an adjustable wrench, loosen and remove the drain plug....with pan under mower quickly turn mower back on it's wheels and allow the oil to drain into the pan. if your mower is equipped with an oil filler tube, remove the filler cap and dip stick. This will allow the oil to drain faster.....when the oil has drained turn the mower back on it's side and replace the drain plug...tighten firmly. put mower back on it's wheels and refill with the proper amount and type of engine oil. fill to the proper mark on the dipstick and DO NOT overfill. Start mower and let run for a few minutes...shut down and check for any oil leaks....and you're done ....hope this helps ;-D

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.

I have a troy bilt mower with a briggs & stratton engine. How do I change the oil?


There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.
