How do I check the oil level in an engine?


2-stroke engines don't have a sump (reservoir) containing oil.

If the trimmer is 4-stroke, you can follow the procedure outlined in Jacks Small Engines here, or check your manual for the procedure for your specific model. If you can give me the model number, I can check the details.
