On these mowers you need to use a vaccum oil extractor or just turn the mower on its side and collect the oil right out of the dipstick tube. Try to do this with the fuel at a low level and the fuel cap tight.

My Honda hru173pu mower blows white smoke and there's oil on the plug I haven't overfilled the oil do u think I need new engine rings


That is definitely a sign of bad rings. Sometimes people turn the mower on its side, the wrong side and then oil slips past into the cyclinder . Spray some carburetor cleaner into the plug hole then reinstall the plug. Start the unit up and see if it burns the oil from the cyclinder, give it a few minutes. If the problem goes longer than a few minutes then yes, bad rings.

How to change the oil in my MTD 6.5h Honda yardman


Many mower engines no longer have a drain plug, or the plug is covered by the deck or other components, the best way is to suck the oil out via the oil filler, there are plenty of inexpensive vacume pumps availble that makes the job easy, check out the dealers or e bay.

I need to change oil in my yard man lawn mower. Where is the drain plug? I need to change the oil


Hi, you drain it out of the dipstick filler hole by tipping the mower to that side. Remove the sparkplug cap first as a safety precaution. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

How to change oil In a craftsman lawn mower, that has a honda engine. Misplaced my manual. Have decided to change my own oil rather than have it serviced every year I was doing a number of lawns so I had...


Look for a drain plug under the deck in the bottom of the engine (under the deck) known as the crankcase housing. Drain plugs come in different forms, but you will know it when you see it. IF there is no plug on the engine bottom, then check for a small plug on the side of the engine (above the deck) with a square head. That would be removed and the mower tilted that way to drain the oil. If no plug on the side of the engine then the oil will have to be drained out the oil filler tube. Remove the dipstick and tilt the mower that way to drain the oil.

My yard man mower is blowing black smoke when I crank it. Why would this be?? It was low on oil, but we filled it up and it still smokes. Do we need to change the oil? If so how? It has a honda engine, and...


Like the other guy says drain the oil out. Disconnect the spark plug wire (for safety). Place the mower onto a stable platform to work from. To remove the drain plug usually you need a 3/8 ratchet and I use a short extension so I don't skin my knuckles. Put the extension end into the drain plug and remove. Have a drain pan to catch the used oil. Clean the area around drain plug first. When oil is drained replace the drain plug and tighten. Add your new oil. ONLY ADD ABOUT 15 OUNCES. Use SAE 30 motor oil. Once you get the oil in set it on a flat surface and check for the proper level. Add if needed. Usually the push mowers only use about 16 ounces. I start with 15 because it is easier to add than remove the oil. Replace the spark plug wire, prime and start. It may smoke awhile to get the old oil burnt up.

Oil drain plug


Drain plug is not necessary. Remove the dipstick and tip the mower to the side the dipstick is on and use the dipstick tube as a drain.

Oil drain plug


may be under the blade plate under the mower, usually a plug with a quarter inch square drive, you can use a ratchet to loosen it if it is quarter drive, maybe a half inch drive
