Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

Open Question

How much oil does the toro model 20070 mower hold? The manual says 20 oz, but that is way too much. After the oil was drained, only 1 oz was added and the dipstick read full. The dipstick is very difficult to read, but yes it is clean. Thanks.

SOURCE: toro self propelled mower will not move

This is a very simple solution, When you pull the lever it simply pushes a pulley into the belt to make it tight. Most of the time the belt has come off or maybe the cable broke. Turn the mower over and you will see the belt. My money is on the belt off.

SOURCE: toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

SOURCE: Toro Personal Pace Mower won't start w/ electric starter

There are a couple of things you can check;

First, check to make sure the bendix is engaging. It is the gear that meshes with the fly wheel.

If it is, then try and see how fast the motor is spinning. Don't look at the blade though. It could be a faulty starter motor.

Make sure to also check the battery voltage with a volt meter. It should read at 12.0 or higher.

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.

If your Toro mower came equipped with a Tecumseh engine, then the dipstick seal is a common place for oil to leak. Look under the right side of the red plastic cover that is on top of the engine for an engine ID sticker. Take the model and spec numbers from the engine and go to either your local repair shop, or go to www.partstree.com for your parts. This is a simple repair and can be done with basic hand tools and mechanical knowledge. This is a good time to change to oil, too. Drain, replace gasket, refill.
Good luck!

How much oil to put in a 6.25 briggs and stratten


They hold APPROXIMATELY 20 ounces. Put in around 18 oz and start checking the dipstick and adding a little until it gets to the full or MAX or whatever it says on your particular engines stick. Each time you ad a little, give it a chance to drain down or you will get a false reading

How to change oil and where i put the oil in to the lawn mower mtd 3.5hp / 20


Warm up the engine so the oil will flow out. Push the handle to the ground and either have someone stand on it or wedge it underneath something to hold it down. Disconnect spark plug!! Remove blade. Place a drain pan underneath mower (one that's shallow enough to lower the mower down on) and using a 3/8 extension on a ratchet, stick the square end of the extension in the drain plug in the bottom of the engine and unscrew. Lower mower back down for a couple of minutes then reverse proceedure. I think it holds about 20 oz. of oil. Put in 18 oz. and check it. Be sure not to overfill.
