There is smoke coming out of my lawnmower

did you check oil level . what happens is the carb float sticks and dumps gas into the motor crank with the oil,(oil will smell like gas) to much oil = smoke.(rebuild carb change oil). IF this is a bad or weak motor use STP OIL treatment the thick stuff and use the whole can when you do your oil change . this will help you sneak a year or two more out of a bad motor

Won't crank, brand new battery.

Yes you probably need carb cleaning also its a good measure to drain the oil because if gas over time it does happen that gas will seep past the carb or carbs and into the cylinders and into the crankcase mixing with the oil.

My oil smells like gas on my 2005 gsxr 600 i just bought

hi,if the bike is a carb model,you may have a leeking float needle seal,this is quite common,basically if the float needles leak they will allow fuel to flow unchecked into the carb,ultimately flooding the carb,the fuel then runs down the inlet manifold and into the sump,hope this helps...cheers

2001 john deere saber briggs moter smell gas in oil

If you're using ethanol-blended fuel, the ethanol will eat away at the neoprene parts inside the Briggs carb.Going to need a carb rebuild.
Don't run your engine until it's fixed or you could damage it as gas will pour into the crankcase, causing the oil to thin and lose its lubricating ability.
