Not very many are the type you need to add oil to gas, on the mower look for a small cap at the bottom base of the mower's engine you may need a pair of pliers to turn it counter clockwise to remove don;t add too much just about one cup shoul do it. if you can't find it then it may be the typr with the screw on cap that is higher up look for a knob at the top part of the mowwe rthere is only two and there should be some type of writing either the type of oil or the word oil filler on it.

Hi, what kind of oil can i put in my ridind lawnmower craftsman?


The domestic engines (Briggs, Tecumseh) take SAE 30 weight motor oil. The import engines (Honday, Kawasaki) usually take 10W30 motor oil. In either case, I recommend using a good quality name brand oil like Castrol, Pennzoil, etc. Most riding mower engine take about 48oz from a complete drain. If your engine has an external filter, it might require a few more ounces.
I hope this helps.

Can't start it up - no instructions


Steps
  1. Make sure you have enough motor oil in your mower. Usually there is a cap on top of the mower body, smaller than the gas cap, that says "oil" or something similar. The cap will probably have an oil gauge attached, so check the oil as you would in a car, that is, judge the level of oil on the gauge against the depth of the reservoir (the length of the gauge).
  2. Make sure you have enough gasoline. There should be a clearly labeled cap on the gas tank. If you open it, you should be able to look down into the tank and see the approximate level. Add more (preferably using a funnel) if needed.
  3. Locate the prime button, usually red or black, a squishy button somewhere on the mower's body. Push it between 3 and 8 times in order to force the gasoline into the lines.
  4. You may need to pull and hold a starting lever (a safety feature), or the lawnmower will not start no matter what you do.
  5. Brace your arm holding the starting lever, and pull upward on the pull cord, which you should find on top of the mower body. You may have to do this several times before the motor starts up.
  6. If you are still unable to get your mower started, try the lawnmower inspection and troubleshooting steps at http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-a-Lawnmower.

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!!!
