SOURCE: Change Oil

All lawn mower engines have a drain plug for draining the oil. Look for a square nut on the side of the engine

SOURCE: where do i change the oil on 5.5 hp. 21 inch cut

Most of these machine will have an oil drain plug under the mower deck near the center of the blade. 80 to 90 % of them are a 3/8" drive female plug that can be removed with a ratchet and a short extention.
When you put it back in it is a good idea to clean it well and wrap the threads with 2 or 3 layers of teflon tape

SOURCE: i have a mtd 6 hp push mower,what type of oil

Lawn mowers with engines smaller than 10 hp use a "splash" oil system for lubrication. Therefore you should use a standard SAE 30W non detergent oil. Per most user's manuals oil changes are every 25 hours of use. Every 4th oil change you can use a detergent 30W oil. Doing this will clean the inside of the crankcase and all components to the point the look brand new. It will not hurt the motor or the seals in the motor. However after this cleaning 25 hour period with the detergent oil, you should go back to SAE 30W oil again.

My mtd gold will not move it is a hydro and wont tram eather way


Robert, check the hydro. release lever at rear of tractor, if you can push tractor the lever is in release mode and has to be switched to engage mode. If this is not the problem it could be numerous things, broken/stretched belt, fuse for clutch blown,faulty clutch, park brake stuck on, broken shear key in transaxle or damaged, gear linkage loose, if any sign of hyd. oil leak check level/fill and bleed as per your manual,etc. You may want a good small engine tech. to have a look, diagnose and estimate repair.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

What weight oil is used for the MTD 21" Yard machine> I need to add oil and I wnat to make sure I add the right kind!


Your Engine is more then likely a 3.5-4.0 hp so use 5w30SAE oil do not add my suggestion is to change changing will keep you from over filling and causing an air lock in the Lhead if you were to get an air lock you will blow out your Lhead gasket. So better safe then sorry change don't add ok of course this is my opinon I am no pro I have just learned from my mistakes.
