SOURCE: troy bilt mower won't stay running to cut lawn

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

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: I have a troy bilt mower with a briggs &

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.

SOURCE: how do you tighten the control cable on a Troy Bilt mower?

Usually near the end of the cable there is a squeeze clamp on the side of the cable. Losen the mounting screw (DO NOT remove it) and slide the cable in the direction that will expose more cable. Tighten the mounting screw and test the control. It is really pretty simple.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Dump out old gas. Fill with fresh gas. Always use Stabile in gas. Clean or replace park plug and air filter. Check oil level. All mowers have a low oil start cutoff. 30w oil. If any grey in oil moisture contaminated, dump out old oil and refill. Check fuel line for cracks or leaking. Check primer bulb for cracks, replace if required. Clean outside of carb with carb cleaner to ensure easy choke operation. Remove carb bowl from carb, ensure float hangs down freely. float down fuel flow, float up fuel flow stops. Check bowl screw for hole thru bolt, if so clean out hole.

Troy-bilt cultivator 26cc gas/oil separate engine spewing oil out through filter when running...there is a hose from the oil reservoir straight into the back of the filter...as the engine revs it literally...


Hi, Check the oil reservoir breather that it's not plugged up. The oil should be returning back to the reservoir not going to the filter. That tells me that there is air being pumped into the engine (oil).
The piston rings could be broken or the carberator needs to be readjusted.

Open the air screw abit more on carb. Then see what happens. Good luck.

Troy bilt mower 6.75 hp smoking too much oil


Check oil level, it could be just excess oil. Also check air filter, it may need cleaning/replacing. Depending on how old the nower is, it could be broken rings in the engine, in that case... time for a new mower. hope this helps!

Troy Bilt power washer 020293- Oil in air filter


that is incorrect. if the oil has been over filled, it will saturate the filter element by way of the crankcase breather tube. it is the small plastic pipe that connects to the bottom of the filter housing. check the oil level. these machines take very little oil. approx 20 oz. if overfilled, it will leak out filter.
