Yes and no. 2 strokes do not have oil like a car, meaning in the crankcase. the oil is mixed with the fuel and introduced into the engine through either the carburetor or an oil injection set up. the oil/fuel mix is burned in the engine. that's why 2 strokes smoke so much.

and on most small two strokes the gearbox is a separate compartment containing engine oil like a regular engine.
