Briggs Stratton Oil ChangeI changed the oil on 7 Briggs engines today, and my shop is a Briggs service agents.1) take HT cap off, and make sure it cant move back (a spark can jump)2) turn machine on its side carb upper most.3) put a little container under the oil filler/dipstick. (a 3.5 hp engine has under a pint in it).4) unscrew filler cap/dipstick and leave till completely drained.5) when finished upright machine and refill with the right oil, (most Briggs engines use SAE30, its a thin oil because there is no oil pump on these small engines, they have a splashier on the big-end) replace dipstick, HT cap and start.6) bobs your uncle. :)

there should never be oil in the carb. if there is then you have a problem. have you tipped the motor on its side on the carb side?

?? What filter? I gather it is a walk-behind mower. Just change the oil every 25 hours to keep it alive!

20 oz. when bone dry, but only about 16 oz. will come out during an oil change.

There are many reasons why you engine could be running hot, if this engine is on a mower, you may be using it to heavily in the heat, your air intake for the flywheel could be clogged with grass, or it could be low on oil, depending what engine it is.

The way to drain gasoline from a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower is to take the oil cap off and drain the oil. From there, run a rubber hose into the drain and siphon the rest of the oil and gas out.

Briggs and Stratton is a select brand of lawn mower. When oiling one's Briggs and Stratton lawn mower engine, it is best to use a high quality oil. One can find such an oil at their local home improvement store, such as Home Depot.

You should always have 20 fluid ounces of oil in a Briggs and Stratton 5.5 HP lawn mower. This equals out to roughly 1.6 quarts.

ANSWER:?SAE30 oil above 40 degrees F (4 C) and below this temperature use 5W-30

My lawn mower smokes when it has too much oil in it or when the oil is watery. Try changing the oil.

Hi, Most engines have a dipstick and tube and it can be drained by placing a suitable container beneath it with mower turned so the tube is on the downward side of the engine.

Answerusually mowers call for 30 weight non-detergent oil, but use "straight weight", don't use an oil that begins with "5W" or "10W". . .these will harm your mowerhope this helps!Check your manual - often you can find it online.My mower uses a common engine (briggs and straton) and it calls for 5-w30 or 10-w30 or SAE 30, or Synthetic 5w30.It also DOES say IN the manual a DETERGENT OIL is FINE (SF, SG, SH, SJ or higher).
