On a garden tractor model cv409s lt2000 serial 3412011603; when changing the oil filter do you need to pour oil into the filter or just oil the mouth of the oil filter?

If it is a screw on type oil filter, apply a film of oil on seal, then screw on. If you want to, go ahead and pour some oil in the filter, in my opinion the oil will circulate faster if there is some oil already in the filter.

I would change the air filter and might even take a hair dryer and carefully dry the engine components, with particular attention to wiring connections and ignition components. Sounds like it needs to be dried out some. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Try changing the its oil-seals. The problem lies there. It may be damaged or the oil-seals are now smaller than its is used to and it is because of the heat. The oil-seal are rounded things that are made of rubber.
