Sorry I had to go to work. May of caused it to leak oil? Do I need to drain the oil out of the Kabota? And if so, do I just unloosen the skrews around the bottom of the pan, or is there another way? Or can I just add the other oil {Shell Rottila 15w40)?which I bought yesterday.

Morning
There should be a drain plug in the oil pan
may be a 9/16" head of the plug
Yes ,don't add 15w40 on top of other oil

Do you have an idea of how much oil should drain out? Or any other suggestions? If I did ruin the gasket does is it hard to change and what is the procedure for replacing it?If it turns out to be a valve problem what is the procedure?
