This is a "Backfire" check your ignition timing and also check that you engine oil level isn't dropping. It shouldn't be shooting oil out of the air filter. this is usually an indication of a problem in the piston chamber, Either, a holed piston, broken piston rings or a blown head gasket.

Oil shoot out through air filter

That means your engine already have big blowback, air from engine crankshaft goes out into the engine oil cover and into the pcv valve to the air cleaner.
It is cause by the compression leakage from piston rings.
Better check and clean the PCV first or buy a new one if it is fully blocked. Located from the engine oil cover, follow the hose on top, hose goes into PCV and into air cleaner.

Hope that helps you out!

I put gas in the oil tank and the oil in the gas tank by mistake, started the saw , it ran for a few minutes then it serious???

Not likely. The gas in the oil tank can be drained and refill with bar oil - it might even help it feed more oil to the bar and chain as it would clean any deposits out! The oil in the fuel would just plug up the jets in your carburetor. You'll need to remove the tank and any housing over the carb, as well as the air filter. Blow compressed air into the fuel line to remove the oil from it and watch where it comes out in the carb. Now spray carb cleaner into the throat the oil came out using the red straw. It is possible you may need to remove the air / fuel mix screws on the side of the carb. If so, turn those screws clockwise, counting how many turns it takes to bottom out the screw - take your time, this is really important to get it to run when your done.Don't tighten those screws down - you may damage the seat which will affect the operation. Writing down the turns may help - it helped me!! Remove those screws and blast those ports with the carb cleaner and straw.Spray out fuel line again as well as the throat the oil came out in the carb. Remove and clean or replace spark plug. Doing it now will give the carb cleaner time to dry out. Install those screws, making sure you get them in the right positions and the right turns out by bottoming out the screws then turning out to the proper distance. Install tank, air cleaner, and shoot a 1/2 second blast of starting fluid into the cylinder before you install the plug - make sure you use starting fluid with lubrication so you don't bugger up the piston rings or cylinder wall. Install spark plug, fill oil tank, fill fuel tank with proper mix fuel, choke and start - you should be good to go.
Hope this helps!!

Blower will run on choke but not in the run postion

If you haven't tampered with any adjustments (Set screw, Idle, Hi or Lo jets etc...) then most likely your carb is flooding. You either have something stuck in the needle valve passage keeping it open. (And it can be Tiny! and I mean a speck.) You can try shooting some good old "Gumout" or any other carb cleaner/ degreaser made for carbs. Try removing the gas line off the carb "Inlet" and with that hose off spray the carb cleaner into that hole liberally. Pull the throttle open and close fast as you do the "spray in".If you have compressed air? Send a little of that in there after the spray, then spray a bit more cleaner in. Let it then sit for 10 15 min loaded with cleaner. Then reconnect the gas hose, prime it up with the primer bulb, restart it, let it warm up a bit. see what happens. Oh FYI to much oil (or the wrong type)in the gas mix can sometimes cause something very similar to flooding. So make sure all is correct!

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start

Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.

Jeep liberty gas mileage

when was the last time you put in fuel injector cleaner? I put in Lucas Oil Injector cleaner every other or every oil change.

There are alot of factors affecting your gas mileage. Tire wear, tire pressure, wheel alignment, air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, oxygen sensors, just to name a few. So to say what you need is just shooting in the dark without more information. I would probably start with your oxygen sensors, and then perform a tuneup. If your vehicle pulls to one side or the other when driving on the highway you need to stop into the shop for a wheel alignment.

Oil come out the air cleaner

Too much crankcase pressure or the breather pipe is split/dosconnected. The crankcase breather goes into the rear of the air filter and the crankcase gasses are drawn in to the cylinder with the gas/air mixture and burned
