Have a Troybilt 4 cycle weed eater. checked oil

Have a Troybilt 4 cycle weed eater. checked oil level and thought it was low and put some oil in the rear of the motor. Unit does not want to run at full speed now and quits after a few minutes of running. Dumped some of it out. Don't want to over heat the unit. Have I hurt the unit by putting in too much oil when unit was standing on end? Smells like it is running too hot. Have checked rear oil plug and now do not have too much oil in it. What weight of oil do I add?

You can use the small oil bottle that came with your unit to measure the correct dosage of oil. Fill the bottle to the top of the square part where the seam line is at, then pour it into the oil hole.

Owners manual will state proper oil to be used but a good bet is that it requires SAE 30 wt. oil. Check and make sure no cooling fins are clogged with dirt, grease, debris, insect nests etc. Oil helps cool your engine also, but the proper amount is very important. I recommend synthetic oil for engine longevity. It's superior to standard oil for different reasons.

What is oil to fuel radio


Hi Maryanne:
Most lawnmowers have 4 cycle engines and run on straight gas.
If there is an oil sump or a dipstick to check oil level, you'll just use straight gas.
If it's a 2 cycle machine, like a weed eater, the "modern" units typically use 50:1 ratio.

must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air cooled engine oil designed to be
mixed at a Ratio of 40:1 ...."
and I quote once more from the manual "Helpful Tip. To obtain

Brand new weed eater lawn mower blowing white smoke.


Pull air filter see if theres any oil in it,make sure the oil isnt overfilled. Push mowers usually smoke like that if theyre overfilled,or tipped on thier side,if there is oil in filter simply take filter off,drain oil to correct level,and run it till smoke goes away. If none of this is the problem rings are probably shot. Weedeater is a cheap brand and theyre made cheap too,not made to last.
