How to change oil in a Kohler KT725 engine on a Cub Cadet XT1 lawn mower


A diy, step by step video demonstration on how to change oil in a Kohler KT725 engine in a Cub Cadet XT1 lawn mower.


In this video we'll be changing oil on a Kohler KT 725 engine.

We will start by opening the hood and disconnecting the headlight wire.

Once the headlight wire is disconnected the hood can be removed by pulling up and out of the hood mounts.

The drain plug can be opened like a valve by twisting and the cap opened to drain the engine oil.

The oil filter can be removed with an oil filter wrench.

Once the engine oil has emptied, the cap can be closed and the entire drain plug twisted to a locked position.

The oil filter can be lubricated and reinstalled on the engine.

The dipstick can be removed in a funnel place to refill the engine oil.

Once the engine oil is refilled, it can be checked by using the dipstick.

The dipstick can then be pushed into place to close the seal.

Hey, thank you very much I had a great time making this video and I hope you did watching it.

Every engine oil change should include a check of specification for the quantity of oil to be replaced, oil filter part number.
