    Oil/Filter suggestion for John Deere S240 w/Kawasaki 21.5 hp.

    After 20 plus years of wanting a riding mower I finally treated myself to a John Deere S240 (first time rider owner) So now begins the circus in my head on what Oil to use, and realizing there are also different oil filter choices than JD or Kawasaki.

    2 stroke oil question

    Can I use 50:1 oil gas mix in a chainsaw that uses 40:1 mix. I keep 50:1 on hand all the time because my line trimmer, and leaf blower use that mix, but my seldomly used chainsaw calls for a 40:1 mix. I don't want to blow up the chainsaw, but I also don't to buy and keep a 40:1 mix as I'd...

    2017 Camry SE or 2017 Subaru Forester Prem 2.5

    I've been weighing the pros and cons of each vehicle to make my next DD for the next 10 plus years. I live in the snow belt, so the Subaru's AWD would be appreciated. Although my play it safe side says to buy the Camry,and a set of winter tires. Both models are later in their generation cycle...

    Hissing/whistling coming from EXHAUST, any ideas?

    About a month ago I had my exhaust replaced on my Ranger. As soon as I took it home I noticed that a whistling/hissing noise on when getting up to speed on the highway. I don't hear the noise while accelerating in city driving, just under heavy load, heavy acceleration at highway speeds. The...

    Carbon build on piston heads

    I was recently tuning up my leaf blower, and weed wacker while servicing the spark plugs, I noticed a good amount of carbon build up on the piston heads. Both units are around 4 or 5 years old. I use them quite a bit between mine and my mothers yards. This is the first year I put in new plugs...

    What octane in your 4 stroke lawn mower engines?

    I bought a gallon of Shell 93 for the mowers (b&s675/hondagvc160) for the [censored] of it. Usually I'll use 87, now Im starting to second guess buying the high octane. Is there anything to be concerned with, or is it fine to run high octane in small engines?

    Overfilling a half qt. in a 3.5 Honda

    This is the first time Ive changed the oil in my wifes 07 Vue, it has the Honda 3.5 engine. It calls for 4.5 qts. Is it alright if I dump in the whole 5 qt jug? My Blazer calls for 4.5 qts, and I dump in the whole 5qts, never a problem. But the 4.3 Chevy engine is an old school beast, that is...

    My Ranger exhaust smells like sulfur

    Anyone have this issue? Im not really even sure it is an issue, from what Ive read on the internetz. The smell is kinda on the faint side, I notice it after taking on the highway, not at startup. Hopefully it is just the brand of gas im using, or perhaps an O2 sensor?
