I have a craftsman lawnmower with a 24 horse intek motor with the 4 screws holding air filter. it has started leaking oil at base of the left jug. it is leaking right at the bottom of it so i cant see...


I am assuming you are calling the cylinder the jug on the engine. If you think the engine is leaking oil from the cylinder you have to replace the crankcase. The cylinder does not separate form the crankcase as they do on atvs. If you see the leak at a gasket, it could be a blown head gasket, valve cover gasket or a sump gasket. The sump gasket is the gasket between the crankcase and the sump. The sump is the part of the engine the mounting screws thread into. The valve cover gasket is between the head and the stamped steel cover. Replacing the valve cover gasket is easy. Just remove the four bolts to remove the cover. Then clean the old gasket off. You can apply a thin layer of rtv to help seal the valve cover. The head gasket is between the cylinder and the head of the engine. If this gasket fails, the engine can burn oil and/or leak oil. The head gasket is more involved to replace. You need a set of feeler gauges and a toque wrench to do the repair

Oil dripping from exhaust manifold


Either the cylinder head is cracked or, Is it possible that a stud had once been broken off in the hole(s) and when they were drilled out the drill went a bit to deep and punctured the cylinder head? That is about the only reason their would be oil coming out of the manifold stud holes as the holes are not connected internally to anything.
