Question about Toro Power Lawn Mower
Depending on what engine is on your Toro lawnmower, there may not be a oil plug under the mower deck. A briggs and stratton engine will have one, but if the unit has self propel then you will have to move the guard over the self propel cable. This is a 1/2 in bolt, you will also have to loosen the other bolt to swing the guard around.
On a Kawasaki or Honda, and even if you have a Tecumseh engine then just start the mower up for a few minutes and let the engine oil get warm, then shut the engine off and then lay the mower on the side that has the oil filler cap and put your drain pan under the oil filler cap. You can then drain the oil out of the oil filler tube. You can also do this with the briggs and stratton engine. I find this to be a very convenient way to change the oil.
Then put fresh oil back in the unit. I always suggest to put the engine manufacturer's oil back in the unit, or if that is not available then use another oil from another engine manufacturer. IF you use automotive oil, the oil will break down faster since the heat level for the engine on car is less than that of the engine on your lawnmower. The engine has a water cooled design, that keeps the engine temperature from raising over about 250 degrees F. The engine temp on your lawnmower can get as hot as 400 degrees F in the summer heat and being run for 30 minutes or longer.
A longer answer than you had hoped but I hope the information keeps your lawnmower running well for many summers to come. :)
