Probably can substitute, but you really need the Owner's manual, especially if still in warranty. You don't want to jeopardize the Warranty. Try the MFG website or manualslib.com for the owner's manual with the correct oil specified.

Where is drain plug for oil on Troy bilt Tb230


It does not have a drain plug. You can remove the dip stick and tilt the mower to pour out the oil, or you can use one of those hand pump syphon units to pump it out.

What kind of motor oil uses


Change engine oil regularly, every 3000miles or 3months, whichever comes first. Make sure to use an API certified SAE 10W30 in Summer and 5W30 in the Winter. If your Hyndai has extensive engine wear, 10W30 is a suitable substitute. You must not use 10W30 if temperatures are 20F and expected to fall.

Solution for "i have a 2005 crf 230 f and i dont know what kind of oil to use"


Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
