Oil Overfill / Gasoline Problems?
Last week my fiancee overfilled the oil on the Toro Lawn mower we have. Once I had time, I drained the oil in the mower (since it was bellowing white blue smoke when she turned it off) and put new oil into the mower up to the normal operation line.
I tried to start the mower and it still didn't turn over. I replaced the spark plug and filter, and after reading further into the manual, i see that it says to "let the mower run out of gas from normal use or hand pump the ramaining gas out of the mower before chaning the oil."
Well, needless to say this did not happen, and the mower won't start..... Do they ask you to do this so oil doesn't get into the gasoline? If I pump out the gas tank and refill with good gas should it start?
Not really sure where to go from here.
