Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

Toro 1900cc (guaranteed to start) big laugh! It won't start. oil in engine. plug coated with oil. I have drained the oil by turning mower upside down and no matter how many times I clean the plugs it never starts. There is no way to drain the oil from the underside. Just got the mower last summer and it cost me over $500. Not good for such a new mower.

Have a GTS 5.5 here,and cannot find the drain plug in order to change the(OLD) oil. Had the blade and cover off,and saw no bolt or plug. Also didn't see a plug on the side. Any help appreciated.

Well If You Cant find drain plug [should be a square drive]

Then I would turn the thing upside down [empty gas tank first of course]& drain it thru the filler plug. Perhaps the drain is an inset hex bolt and you must REALLY clean the underneath, dig around for it!

Toro zx 5420 oil change

The lug is under the mower. There should be a square plug that is the oil drain plug. Disconnect the spark plug first then remove the oil drain plug. You should have the muffler facing up because oil will get into the cylinder and cause blue smoke when the engine starts if you don't.

Hi michael, You have most certainly put in too much oil. Try draining a bit off and then clean the spark plug with some paper towel. Leave the mower level for a few hours and then try it again.

Put too much oil in toro lawnmower

Hi cldgaines1...
You do not want excess oil in the crancase, it can cause mechanical problems and smoke a lot.
Drain the excess oil out of the crankcase..
If you have an oil drain it will be located under the mower housing.
If you do not have an oil drain then you will have to tilt the mower with the oil filler plug removed to drain the excess oil from the crankcase.
Please take time to rate me.

Where do I have access to drain oil from my TORO GTS2 lawnmower?

There are two ways to drain the oil. One is to tilt the lawnmower and drain the oil from the oil fill which is really a pain in the ****. The other is easy; here is what you do. First, disconnect the spark plug to ensure the mower cannot start (I don't have to tell you what effect a turning mower blade can have on human digits), and raise the mower up; you can use an ATV jack or you can get someone to help you set it on saw horses or you can simply raise the front by pushing the handle to the ground. On the bottom of the deck you will see a drain plug, you can't miss it, it's a square can use a socket extension and wrench to pull it...make sure you have a receptacle to catch the old oil before you remove that plug, you don't want oil all over your garage floor (ask me how I know that! lol). Once the oil is drained completely, meaning there is nothing but drops coming out, clean the drain plug and re-install it. Now you can lower you rmower and fill the crankcase with fresh oil!

HELP, 2007 Toro walk behind mower

There is a drain plug on the block of the motor usually it looks square. if its not behind the blade on the under carriage, then it will be on top above the blades were the motor is visible. you may have to tip the mower on its side to completely drain all the oil. but the plug is always going to be on the motor either on the side or on the bottom. if the plug is on the bottom were the blade is remove the spark plug wire first. a mower can start if you turn the blade by hand and that would be vary bad news so always take the spark plug wire off and make sure it can not come in contact with the spark plug before going underneath the mower.
