I've read the manual that's been posted here. I think my engine says it has a 21 oz capacity. Though after draining and refilling with one quart, the dipstick reads high (and oil gushed out of the breather tube on the side).

Am I not draining it right? There's two square plugs on the side of the engine bottom.

I'm confused, any tips?

Drain the oil out and refill with the correct amount. If you purchase oil specifically for a lawn mower engine, it generally will come in a 20 oz. container. You can of course use regular engine oil, there is nothing special about oil for lawn mowers.

Wow this stuff is complicated. Good thing you folks are around.

:)

Thanks for the clues.

I will drain and refill correctly.
