If there is a dip stick add some oil check the level till you get to the full mark. It should take a little more than a quart. If there is no dip stick then there is an oil fill plug down low on the engine. Fill slowly until the oil reaches the threads in the engine housing (almost overflowing). Be sure to replace the plug or you will have oil everywhere when you start it.

Don't just dump the oil in, check the level as you go!

Amount of oil to fill up after change oil,modelpo450n20s serial #041910m033204,20 inch cut 450 series,4.50 what btype of oil?


Push mowers typically need 20 oz. of oil to fill up. Most should be able to use 10W-30 or 30W, either one are called for in the manuals. If you have the manual there will be a little chart that tells you what grade of oil for a temperature range and normal summer mowing both are correct.

What type of oil is used in a yard machine lawn mower model no. 11A-414E029


SAE 30WT i.e non detergent. Change oil every 25 hours and every 4th oil change us a detergent 30 WT oil.

The manuals will never tell you that but having worked on small engines since the mid 60's that 4th oil change with a detergent oil does a bang up job of keeping the oil ring from eventually cooking onto the piston. Also washes out the crank case and makes it look like new!

I have a mtd 6 hp push mower,what type of oil should i use for it?


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.

Oil change


Most push mowers, you just take out the filler plug and turn it on it's side to drain.Set the mower up on blocks so it rests 6-8" off the ground, place a large catch pan underneath for the oil.

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

I have a troybuilt push lawnmower with a honda motor, I was wondering where the oil plug was where I can drain the oil.


It is under the mower, you will need a 3/8 ratchet and extension to take it out...make sure NOT to tip the mower over, you will have to raise it, but make sure the spark plug end stays up!!!

Oil drain plug


may be under the blade plate under the mower, usually a plug with a quarter inch square drive, you can use a ratchet to loosen it if it is quarter drive, maybe a half inch drive
