Turn off fuel, drain oil clean carbs fill oil to normal level.test compression,if u can.if you cant test compression check the sparkplugs to see if any are fouled with copious amounts of oil. the float sticking would cause the crank case to fill with gas,the pistons moving in and out would displace the excess liquid and gas/oil would spew out somwhere.also if a piston was loosing it compression it could blow oil out of the crank case.You might find that the old 4 cylnder just need carbs cleaned and fresh oil to get it running again.turn your fuel back on after you have cleaned the carbs.

what engine are you talking about ?
sounds like the floats are stuck in the carb and have flooded the engine, strip and clean the carb (s) out, change the oil and then try to restart bike.

Does the motor have a dip stick... if so it's a four stroke. Is it new? There aren't too many 2 strokes around anymore. Look around the base and see if there is a cap with a dips tickets under it ... this signifys a 4 stroke .. Then look around where the gas goes in and see if it states to add oil to the gas. If not use straight high test gas only... keeps the motor running , the cheap regular gas quickly turns to varnish if left sitting longer then 3 weeks and the vegetable based gas they add eats your rubber gas lines . If you leave it for long periods of non use mix in a fuel stabilizer like seafoam . Before you start it make sure the engine has oil in the oil plug with the dip stick under it. Use regular 4 stroke oil not 2 stroke .

My lawn mower started smoking-whitish, looked like it came from the carb. It also made some shaky noises like something was loose. Then it quit running. A while later I started it again-it started fine,...

Recheck your oil level. The smoking routine you mentioned sounds like the crank case is being over-pressurized from too much oil. That results in the crank case breather dumping oil into the intake of the carb. Then you see all the white smoke and hear the engine making odd sounds because of the excess crank case presure. Just re-check the oil level. There are 2 lines on the dip stick. The oil level should NOT be above the upper line with the dip stick fitted in the run position.

If you still have the problem please respond with an engine model number. If it is a Briggs and Stratton engine the number will be on the air shroud near the spark plug wire. Honda and tecumseh the number will be not far from the lower end of oil tube or next to the dip stick on engines without an extended tube stamped on side of the engine base.

Let me know if you still need help after correcting the oil serviciing level. There is more that can be checked..... just need that engine number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The oil dip-stick is blown out of its seat when the compressor runs

Without knowing what make or model you have, check the following:

1. Some, not all, compressor dip sticks have venting holes for the crankcase. If the vent holes are plugged or the check ball is stuck the dip stick will get forced out when the piston comes down.
2. Make sure the oil level is where it's supposed to be. Too much oil in the crankcase will cause the motor to work harder and the excess oil being splashed around the crank case can overwhelm the vents in the case or dip stick and again blow the dip stick out.
3. Worst case, you have worn or broken rings on the piston(s), a hole in a piston or a badly scored cylinder(s) and air is leaking past the piston and creating pressure in the crank case and blowing the dip stick out.

I am trying to chang the oil in my 2100. and i've turned the yellow pice at the bodom and i still have oil in it.

You cannot empty oil completely out of a power washer without a suction hose

Do not turn the power washer on its side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor


The pump oil comes about half way up dip stick >>> use SAE20 or SAE30 non detergent motor oil
The engine oil comes about half way up dip stick >>> use 10W30 for engine

Oil change instructions and oil recommendation (lost manual)

Hello, oil to use in the engine depends on engine if it is a Kohler you will want to use 10w30 approx 2qts. The Briggs & Stratton engines use HD30 or SAE30 approx 1.5qts. Use the dip stick to ensure you have the right amount and don't over fill.

To change the oil:

  • run engine about 10 minutes to warm up oil so it flows better
  • at the bottom of the dip stick there is either a valve or plug
  • open the valve or plug and let the oil drain (I use an old gallon oil container with a funnel) leave the dip stick out
  • while the oil drains; change the spin on oil filter
  • once all the old oil has drained replace the plug or close the valve
  • wipe down the funnel and use it to refill the new oil
  • use the dip stick to ensure proper fill level
I also recommend that you replace the air filter at the same time, if the engine can't get air is can't run efficiently.

If this is helpful please vote yes, Thank You!!

This engine requires synthetic oil, 5 quarts, and oil filter. Remove dip stick, remove oil drain plug at bottom of engine oil pan, remove filter housing, remove oilf filter and o-ring. Replace o-ring and filter, rub o-ring with some new oil, replace filter housing, replace oil drain plug, pour new oil in at top of engine oil cap, replace dip stick, start engine, run for 45 seconds, turn off, check dip stick to make sure oil is at correct level. You are done, recycle old oil.

I changed the oil but my dip stick is showing way too much oil, what is going on? At first I had a hell of a time getting the drain plug out, but finally did. Drained the oil, replaced the filter,...

Make sure you are not checking the oil with the car running first of all, second don't check the oil immediately after turning off the car let the engine stand for about ten minute allowing the oil to drain off the dip stick,

Gas entered the exhaust system and then oil reservoir. I got the gas out exhaust change oil. Mower runs but in question is gas still entering both places.

the little solenoid on the bottom of your carb is letting gas flow while it is not runnung.therfore gas gets into your oil.About an 80.00 part..or you could just turn your gas valve off when your done mowing.but still you would have to eventually replace that part.hope this helps
