They recommend using only SAE 30 oil or 5W-30 if you choose to use synthetic. Be careful. Most smaller mower engines only require about 20-21 oz. The Honda engine may use more. See gauge on side of oil bottle.

SOURCE: where is the oil plug located on a troy bilt mower?

Tilt it over so the oil cap is on the bottom...it'll rest on the handle and hang there...put a container under the oil fill pipe...something shallow like a glad sandwich container works perfect...get a paper towel, and reach under an unscrew the cap...all the oil runs out into the container...it'll fit !!

Wipe the dipstick off clean, and put it aside...take this time to look at your blade on the other side...it "should look" similar to wood chisel at the last 5 inches of the blade on both ends followed by a wing under it...BTW: their $12 bucks new...and worth it !!

Go back and look at the container and be sure the oil is finished draining...take the lid for the container and snap it on and move it out of the way (no body likes an oil spill)...wipe off the oil fill spout, and re-fill...takes about a half a quart, so don't over fill it !!!

your done...

SOURCE: troy bilt mower 6.75 hp smoking too much oil...

Check oil level, it could be just excess oil. Also check air filter, it may need cleaning/replacing. Depending on how old the nower is, it could be broken rings in the engine, in that case... time for a new mower. hope this helps!

Where is drain plug for oil on Troy bilt Tb230


It does not have a drain plug. You can remove the dip stick and tilt the mower to pour out the oil, or you can use one of those hand pump syphon units to pump it out.

Changing oil in a troy bilt squall 5521


To change oil in a lawn mower you will need to acquire a fluid evacuation pump. Remove the dipstick and with the pump evacuate the old oil into a suitable container. Check your owners manual to determine how much oil to put in DO NOT overfill or the mower will not work. Make sure the old oil gets recycled.

I have a troy bilt mower with a briggs & stratton engine. How do I change the oil?


There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.

Can't find the oil drain plug on Troy Bilt with 5.5 Honda engine


You may want to look under the deck. They sometimes put them there. And if it is a self propelled, you will probably need to remove or loosen the plastic cover that protects the self propelled belt.

You are looking for a nickel sized plug that has a square peg. Use an extension piece for a socket set if you don't have the proper plug removal tool.
