15 oz. of oil is required for the 550e Series engine (2200 PSI Pressure Washer).
Oil Capacity 22 fl.
So how much oil does a lawnmower take? Most walk-behind mower engines like Briggs and Stratton will take from empty approximately . 65 us quarts (. 6lt); Honda walk-behind mowers will take a little less .
There`s not much difference between 10W-30 and 10W-40 motor oil. What sets them apart has more to do with temperature fluctuations and engine load. For moderate weather, either engine oil grades should work fine.
Engines on most outdoor power equipment operate well with 5W30 Synthetic oil. For equipment operated in hot temperatures, Vanguard 15W50 Synthetic oil provides the best protection.
Oil Capacity 20 fl.
5w30 and 10w30 are both 30 weight oils and the exact same thickness in your engine when it is at operating temperature. The 5w30 is better because it thickens less when cool or cold. 80% of wear occurs at start up. Thinner oil gets to the top end faster.
Use Briggs & Stratton SAE 30W Oil above 40°F (4°C) for all of our engines. Check oil level regularly. Air-cooled engines burn about an ounce of oil per cylinder, per hour.
Can You Use Synthetic Lawn Mower Oil? Yes! We have recently modified our engine oil recommendations to state that you may now use a synthetic 5W30 or 10W30 oil in all temperature ranges.
Can I Use 5W-30 Instead Of SAE 30? Both oils have a “30” hot viscosity rating. This means SAE 5W-30 oil has the same flow rate as SAE 30 at operating temp. So, technically it`s fine to use SAE 5W-30 oil in place of SAE 30.

This could be a leak in the intake. You can test this by pulling the air filter and placing your hand over the intake hole and see if the mower smooths out. You can also wiggle the carb a little too to see if putting pressure in the direction of the carbs mounting surface helps.
I usually spray a little bit of WD at the carb base to see if this helps too.
Someone at the store who put this together may have been having a bad day. Or someone at the factory perhaps?
I would also check your fuel can for water or impurities.
When i start the lawn mower i sounds like its flooding and it has oil and smoe coming out of the muffler what could be he problem?
I dont know but i got the same problem.
I have a Poulan 550 158cc Push Mower. Two Model #’s 96132004200 and PR0550N21RH3. Two Serial #’s 0901075421770 and 011309M001762. The mower will run if primed then dies. The carb. is on the tank. I took the tank and carb. off and blew through all openings. Air was coming out all the openings. Still no fix. Can someone please help?
Does it have fresh gas in it, If so time to rebuild the carb, even though you blew through all holes there is a diaphram inside the carb that pumps gas to it, so I suggest you take the carb apart and clean inside out and replace the diaphram, the way you describe it only runs on primer, tells me the carb is not getting fuel. Good Luck

I have provided a link on how to change the discharge chute on a walk behind lawn mower. It is usually pretty straightforward across manufacturers so it should be of help to you.
But in quick terms, you lift the chute cover that holds it in place, remove your current deflector, and insert a new one! It’s easy!
Best of luck!
