First: Disconnect the plug wire from the spark plug. Safety first. Second, look under the mower deck where the crankshaft comes out of the mower (where blade attaches). Right next to the crank shaft should be a drain plug. Remove the plug, drain oil in a pan, replace plug, put mower back on level surface, and refill in the fill plug on the topside of the engine/deck. Don't forget to reattach the plug wire when you are done.

This cheap mower is blowing water out of the exhaust why

If water got into the fuel system, and the mower was tilted or tipped the wrong way, fuel or the water in the fuel could be inducted into the cylinder head. Make sure that the water is not gas. Also, check the oil level and the oil smell. If it is very high on the stick, change it. If it smells like gas, change it.

I have a 20' push mower by Poulan and I am trying to change the oil. I do not see a regular oil plug under it, could it be one of the small bolts? What could I use as an alternate than the Poulan oil...

I do not use the drain plug under the engine. With fuel run out if it can tip into the carburetor, I will tip the mower to drain from the fill so I can drain it into a catch pan. You can use any 30W motor oil in the engine.

I hope this helps.

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.
