Why 1992harley pumps oil when cranking over to star

Check your oil tank level. If it is empty or very low, the oil has seeped by the oil pump check valve and has filled the engine cases with oil. I assume the oil is coming out the air cleaner breather tube? If so, add a quart or so to the oil tank, run the breather hose into a can or bottle, and start it up. Oil will flow out the breather until the cases have been purged. When it stops pumping out refill the oil tank to the proper level. This can happen when the bike has been sitting for a few months or more.

1999 honda xr oil coming from vent tube

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/system overfilled.
2. Faulty breather valve.
3. Engine breather hose bent, pinched, kinked etc.
4. Air filter has too much "pre-oil".
5. Crankshaft seal failure allowing transmission fluid to migrate.
6. Blow by drain tube cracked/split or filled to capacity.

Oil level rise on dipstick

Black smoke is either a rich running carburetor or oil is being burned. Most carburetors are adjustable. Try adjusting any screws for best run. Oil burning and level could be a plugged crank case breather (cleanable), bad rings or valve. Good luck with this one.

Smell of brunt oil oil level is good but smoke of oil coming from engine

A very small amount of oil weeping onto something hot, manifold, turbo etc can give off considerable smell with little smoke. What's the miles?
When was the last service?
What condition is the engine?
Worn engine can give pressure in engine forcing oil fumes/vapour out of breathers onto hot surfaces which then enter car ventilation system.

My 1990 XT 600 is spurting oil out of the crank case ventilation breather tube into the air filter box.

Hi, Anonymous oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For whatever reason, the breather system is not separating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more expensive ones. First, make sure your breather hoses are not dry and cracked if they are ok you can start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from the head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under the frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump.
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate.

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,

What makes a 2005 Yamaha YZ 450 F Blow Oil Out The Crank Case Hose Into The Breather And White Smoke Out The Pipe Thanks

Hi, Shawn_luke_I oil level readings are taken when the engine has reached normal operating temperature and the usual suspects are:
1. Overfilled oil tank dipstick reading should at or below full.
2. If the sight glass is full you are running to much oil.
3. Excessive blowby caused by worn out piston rings.
4. Piston rings never properly seated.
5. Faulty breather valve or system.
6. Pinched or clogged breather line/hose.
7. Clogged or failed oil filter.
8. Contaminated oil dirt-rust-water etc.
9. Excessive oil foaming.
10. Wrong oil type not designed for your bike.

I 'm having a problem with my craftsman riding mower 17.5 Hp 42" deck.Every time i turn over the engine fuel flows into crank case smoking like crazy.Any suggestions?

First, check the engine oi level on the dipstick. If it is over full, smell it, does it smell like gasoline? Or maybe it is just over full from putting too much oil in, no big deal, Yet. Drain the oil completely. This engine takes about a quart and a half of oil.

Check the carburetor next, pull off the air filter and look into the air filter base to see if it is oily. If so the air filter will be wet too. What is happening is the oil is being "Pumped" up the breather hose into the carburetor and trying to burn it, causing the smoke.

When you lower the engine oil level this will stop. Run the tractor with the air filter off ( dont mow or drive), the breather hose should not have oil comming out of it anymore. The smoke will still be there for a while, so do it out side. The muffler will have oil that needs to cook out of it. When that stops you should be good.

If there is still "spitting" out of the breather, you may have bad piston rings alowing exaust to enter the oil sump. If this happens even after the oil level was checked, you need a rering job.

Hope this helps

Oil in the air filter ,RANGER 500 2X4/4X4

Has the oil been changed lately? A lot of times over filling the oil will cause oil to blow back thru the carburetor, Also if the air filter got caked with mud running the box with no lid or allot of dirt in the filter. The engine will try to use the crankcase breather hose as an air intake since not enough air was coming in the conventional way, therefore sucking in oil. Has it smoked at all? Sometimes if you try to shut it off oil will run back down the intake tubes into the air box. This may be applicable to your engine that the breather is being used to **** oil into the box due to lack of fresh air intake.
The other possibilities would be crank case pressure pushing the oil in (piston ring blow by), but that should (theoretically) result in low compression (since the cylinder pressure is getting to the crankcase instead of staying in the cylinder), the oil is overfull and being pushed out since air will compress but liquid will not, or poor crank case ventilation system design (but if that were the case likely there would be a recall as that would directly effect emissions which is federally regulated).

Oil breather problem,2005 FLHTC-I

if you have oil and smoke coming out of the breather on any engine it is a good indication that the piston/piston rings or valves are damaged,what is happening is the fuel oil,smoke is bypassing the piston or valves and coming out through the breather,i would seriously look atgetting it sorted before any more damage occurs,sorry but it doesnt sound cheap,hope this helps
