Hey, what oil should i use. i know its sae 30, but i dont know if its detergent on not, im not wanting to spend over 5 bucks on a quart. so yeah

10W 30, 10W 40, or sae 30 like you said from Walmart. If you want synthetic and all that that's up to you, but I usually run the cheapest conventional oil I can find unless the motor has a knock or something. If it does or is just kinda worn out, then run 10W 40.

Also, IDK if Walmart still carries it, but I believe it's cheaper for the 5 quart.

The engine, what  @Murraymountain said...  For the transaxle, any non-detergent SAE 30.  I've busted a factory unit open and it had SAE 30 Bar and Chain oil.  Good and sticky.  Stay away from normal "detergent" oils for the trans.  Oh, and to fill it faster, put it in neutral and pop off the gear shifter and go in that way.  The filler will take FOREVER!
