The question is too vague to give an accurate response, 2 cycle engines like chainsaws & snow mobiles take a 2 cycle oil / fuel mixture that varies anywhere from 8,16,32 etc to 1 however if you do an online search of the motor manufacturer & provide the information that is contained on the silver colored metal tag usually riveted near the carburetor on the rear side of the block they can tell you the exact weight (10w30) & quantity to maximize the engines lifespan
The engine floods and you have to wait for the lawnmower to drain before you start it up again or it might start smoking.
SAE 10w30 weight synthetic oil.
to put the oil in the lawnmower's crankcase would be fine, so long as it is an appropriate viscosity.
To much oil. or the valve stem is loose and its leaking oil
Drain the oil and gas out of the crankcase and put oil back it should be OK
You get engine damage from lack of lubrication
Yes 10w30 is a good oil for snowblower or lawnmower.
Drain the oil and catch it in a clean container if you intend on reusing the same oil . Then replace the plug and place the correct amount of oil in the motor.
Normally about 20 ounces.
Yes it is possible to do that.
Apparently you didn't crank it up. You are still here. Nothing except it may clean out some old dirty oil. Remove the gas and the oil and discard same. Refill the oil section and refill the gas tank. Don't do that again.
STOP! Read the instruction manual or telephone the manufacturer that sold you the mower and get the specs regarding the type and amount of oil. Too much oil can cause damage and oil leaks, don't guess, observe the marks on the dipstick after adding oil.
If the wrong oil is used in a lawnmower, do not start it. Simply drain the oil as completely as possible and fill with the proper oil.
A 17.5 horsepower Murray riding lawnmower should always have 1.5 quarts of oil in it. You may have to add more than that after an oil change because some of the oil will go down into the oil filter.
15x8 tire = 14.4 oz.
When you overfill oil in a lawnmower it will smoke when you tip it sideways while mowing,it has no harm
Most small engines use 30 weight non-detergent type.
Yitou can. But its not recommended. It wont run right. Stick with the manufacturers recommended weight.
Just drain the incorrect oil and re-fill with the correct oil. There shouldn't be any damage unless you ran it for an extended period of time.
If the lawnmower has two compartments one for gas and the other for the oil, then put gas in the gas and a 30w type oil in the oil compartment. Simple as that. If you have an engine with only one compartment then you'll need to check on the manufacturers suggestions which is usually 40:1 or something close.
white smoke almost always means your lawnmower is burning oil. this could mean either your piston rings are worn and need to be replace ( can be done easily if you have the tools) or you have too much oil in the motor.
