Hi, first check the oil. If it smells like fuel, change the oil. Secondly if oil smells ok, check the valve clearances and adjust if incorrect. Let me know if the oil smells like fuel and I will help with a fix to stop it happening again. Regards Phil.

How to fix a 3.5 lawn mower?


HELLO,
You can fix these yourself, all you have to do is to follow the instructions below,
1 Remove the spark plug lead from the spark plug and move away from cylinder head. Always do this before attempting any repairs to a lawnmower.
2 If your lawnmower is a "four stroke" mower (separate gasoline and oil), tip the mower so that the spark plug is pointing skyward. Never tip it on its side with the spark plug to the ground.
3 If your lawnmower is "2 stroke" (oil and gasoline mixed) turn off fuel tap. You can tip a two stroke mower any way that is suitable to you.
4 To change a blade, or blade disc, it is often easier to remove the spark plug and feed a length of string into the cylinder head to 'lock' the piston while trying to un-do the blade bolt(s).
5 Check the motor's "air filter" while doing this sort of maintenance as a dirty or clogged air filter will affect engine performance and increase fuel consumption of your mower. Symptoms of a clogged air filter include inability to start, starting and quickly stopping after several sputters, or a weak idle. You may also see oily or smoky exhaust.
6 If your mower is a "four stroke" model, change the oil at least once a year. When it is tipped over with the spark plug in the air, is a good time to remove the "oil fill" plug and drain oil into an old ice-cream container for recycling.


I hope this will help to solve the problem.....

Have a toro personal pace 190cc lawnmower and need to change the oil...where is the drain located????


The drain should be under the mower above the blade, it's usually a square head plug.

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 fitting...you 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!

I have a Mountfield HP474 lawnmower. We cannot locate the sump plug to drain the oil. Please could you advise. Many Thanks Gavin


According to the operators manual there is no sump plug, instead you "dump" the oil out using the oil fill.

Below is step by step instructions copied from the Operators manual:

Drain oil while the engine is warm being careful not to touch the hot engine nor drained oil

a) Place engine level
b) Clean around oil fill
c) Remove filler cap
d) Have a container ready to collect the oil
e) Tip the lawnmower on its left side so that the oil will drain from the oil fill
f) Place the lawnmower level and top up with new oil
g) Check the oil level on the dipstick
Oil should be at "MAX" mark
h) Close the filler cap and wipe off any spilled oil

NOTE: The oil capacity is about 0.6 liter

White smoke coming out of lawnmower my son was cleaning garage and thought he would save space so he tilted the lawnmower on its side my brother said that gas and oil may have mixed together and thats...


The oil is drained by removing the drain plug on the underside of the mower, where the blade is. The gas can be drained by removing the gas line from the carburetor and letting the gas drain into a container. Remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug before any work is done to the mower. But, really depending on just how long the mower was on its side, the mower should be OK after running for a few minutes. Have you let it run for several minutes? The oil in the combustion chamber should burn off. The one thing to check is the spark plug. It may have some carbon buildup on it from the oil. It can be cleaned with some spray carburetor cleaner, or you can just replace it for a few dollars.

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!!!
