Fuel leaking out of the crankcase

When I try to start my Honda Shadow ACE, the bike turns over and wants to start, but gasoline begins POURING out of the bottom of the bike through the crankcase below the lefthand side near the ignition. What could the problem be?

Sounds like the float is stuck in the carb.. its not really pouring out of the bottom of the cranks case.. its an overflow hose that is routed down through the motor so it will drain out under the bike.

You probably need to pull the carb and clean it, and check the float.

2006 Honda Shadow won't start. Gas tank filled. Sat 8 mo. Gas leaked out but not into engine.No sign of external leak. into


1. Drain the gasoline.
2. Remove the carb bowl(s) and turn on the petcock to drain the fuel in the lines.
3. Clean out the carb bowl(s) and replace.
4. Refill with gasoline, add 1 oz of Seafoam fuel system cleaner (I'm not a sponsor, I just haven't found anything better) to each gallon of gas. This will stabilize your fuel as well as do a great job of cleaning out the carb(s).
5. Try to start it.

If it still won't start, begin the standard troubleshooting procedure by first pulling a spark plug and turning it over to ensure gas is getting to the cylinder. If so, replace the plug, hold the plug wire slightly away from the plug and turn it over to ensure a spark jumps between the wire and plug. If so, it starts getting complicated. Buy a manual for the bike if you don't have one and follow the troubleshooting steps there.

Gas and oil in honda shadow air box


Hi, Anonymous you're getting ready to go riding you pull out the dipstick to check your oil level and are greeted with the unmistakable smell of gasoline. What happens next depends on the following:
1. You have experienced this before and do not start the engine but do change your oil and filter leaving it 1 quart low until the engine reaches operating temperature then top off as necessary.
2. The amount of time your bike has been sitting since the last time the engine was running.
3. The amount of gas and contaminants in the tank.
4. The oil pump location, exterior or interior.
5. The condition of your petcock gasket/seal/diaphragm.
If your gas tank was low and you start the engine probably nothing you would notice but if your gas tank was full and you start your engine the oil/gas mixture can blow into your air filter, come streaming out of your crankcase breather hose, and launch your oil tank cap followed by a blast of oil. The mess can be minor or you need to call a Hazmat team for assistance. This will also happen if you overfill your oil tank.
Next is the how and why gas can get into your oil tank/system:
a. The vacuum petcock rubber/diaphragm fails, which allows gas to flow from the fuel tank through the petcock, through the vacuum line into the intake manifold, then into the combustion chamber, where it seeps past the piston rings and into the bottom end.
3. Nonvacuum petcocks that are not turned to the off position will patiently wait until contaminants from the gas tank build up in between the carburetor needle and seat breaking the seal thus inviting gas to enter the combustion chamber eventually finding it's way into the bottom end and the oil tank.
4. Bottom line if you're not going to ride your bike for a while turn off the petcock.

What octane level of gas should I use for a 2003 Honda Shadow ACE


Usually premium (92 octane). That's what the bikes are designed to run on. Sometimes you can get away with using 89 octane. But try your best to never use 87 octane fuel, unless you're stuck somewhere and that's all you have available to you.

Fuel in Oil


carb float had a hole in it and 'sank' allowing fuel to flow freely through the carb into the combustion chamber onto the piston down the walls into the sump.

This, my friend, is why there is a fuel valve on the tank

Of course there is a possibility your float didnt 'sink' ... but there is fuel in the sump. So, drain all the stuff - shoot a little oil into each spark plug hole and turn the engine over a couple times to get a good coat of oil on the walls.
