All gas-powered riding lawn mowers have oil filters, but most walk-behinds don`t. So if you own one of the latter, you`re probably off the hook, although you`ll still need to change the oil regularly. Electric mowers don`t need engine oil or filters. It`s fast and easy to change the oil filter in your lawn mower.

Dont know what type of oil to use – Toro Power Lawn Mower
Put straight 30 weight motor oil in it. Not 10W30 or any multi-viscosity oil. Straight 30 weight motor oil. If you’re doing a complete oil change, then you may want to use Synthetic 30 weight, which will last longer between oil changes and also make your engine last longer (but it costs more too). Best of luck to you.James

Lawn mower cranck but wont start…
Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.
Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.
Pouring out oil.
Where is it pouring out from? Might you be over filling the mower? Is your drain plug tight? the right thread? (meteric vs non-metric?) if the casting is cracked, you are done. The other items are probably correctable.
What type of gas should be used in a toro lawnmower?
I would recommend a Mid-Grade gas and if it stored in anything bigger then 2 gal. then some Sta-bul should be added to to the gas can.
