Your carburetor is overflowing gas. Your carburetor should be disassembled and cleaned. Inspect the float and float needle and seat. You may have to replace one or both to get the fuel to shut off. If the float sinks when placed in gasoline replace it. Just replace the needle and seat assembly as a precaution. The only other source of gas in the air box and often the engine crankcase, is caused by a leaking diaphragm on the fuel petcock. If the diaphragm is cracked or has a hole in it , replace the diaphragm or the petcock assembly (if that is the only way it is available) and the leak should be fixed. It is always a good idea to turn your fuel off when not riding. Even a motorcycle in perfect working order can sometimes have a float needle stick and fill the engine with gasoline. Be sure to check that your oil has not been contaminated with fuel. If it has you will need to change your oil also.

If its a newer dryer, they have moisture sensors that determine if it should shut down early or stay on longer if needed. Let it run the extra time and see what happens. If it keeps doing it, then the sensor is defective.

Why am i getting gas in crankcase?

You have a stuck float in the carb...the newer carbs a have a small valve that stops the gas from leaking to the ground when stuck..however it now goes into the intake and into the cylinder and open valves and eventual filling the engine with gas oil nix..I had this and found out don't mess with the carb..cause it will happen again..there is a quick and permanent fix..if your tractor has a gas shut it off if not apply one...first if you have gas in oil it must be takin care of can and will fill the entire engine here is the fix..drain the engine block change the filter then remove and ckean the tape or cover the plug..and slowly crank the engine to blow excess gas from the cylinder. Just keep the plug away..put oil,filter and plugs back..put on a gas shut off or if you already have one..keep it closed at all times when not in is the important part..when done mowing put the throttle in low and reach up and shut off the gas..let it run unti it uses up the gas left in the carb..when starting open the shut off and let open a few seconds to fill the carb..then must do this eah time you shut it down and restart....or get the carb rebuilt not to say it won't happen again..your choice..good luck.

I'm having problems adding gas to my hyundai elantra, it will allow me to put about $2.00 and then the pump will stop?

Your Elantra like most cars and trucks has a safety ventilated fill tank...first try pulling the gas nozzle out of your tank about one inch or two while filling at the pump...this should keep the hose from auto shut/off but be careful as you are eliminating a safety shut may need to do this several times at different stops for gas until you surprisingly notice that you don't need to do this any longer...the system will eventually bleed the air out, and return to normal fill operation. Hope this helps.

Will not run unless gas is full in the tank when gas goes down about 1/4 tank the it shuts down. Fill it back up and it starts and runs. This is brand new used for the first time had to keep filling up...

It definitely sounds like the fuel line in the tank is sticking up, not laying on the bottom attatched to the filter as it should. See if you can drain the tank and take a look inside at the fuel supply line.

Gas is spitting out of the exhaust

Check your oil. If it is too full , change it. Occasionally the Honda's of that time would have the float stick and fill the engine with gas. There may actually be nothing wrong with your cycle , new bikes did this. If gas filled the cylinder and went into the exhaust you probably have a stuck float. If the problem happens again you may have to disassemble and clean the carburetors , replacing the float needles at that time. One good way to keep your oil from filling with gas is to always turn off your gas at the fuel petcock after riding. Be sure to check your air filter for gas/oil saturation and be sure to pull the plugs on your pollution tubes under the air box to drain the blow by.

My 2001 Grand am Se keeps going dead on me while I stop. What is causing this? My husband has changed my fuel filter and also added some Seafoam to my gas tank and my car is still dying on me. It will...

try checking air filter and the box it's in and the hose leading to the engine.this i believe is vacuum problem.if there is a leak,it will stall at low speed.if not that,pcv valve or vacuum lines.if you need to figure out what's what,local libraries usually have haynes manuals with everything about the idles usually don't give problems,but if nothing else works it could be that.gas is made clean enough these days so that it should not be a gas related issue.

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.

The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

Over filled oil yzf 450

Open the air box,clean it from extra oil,renew the air filter if you have to and without the air box-air filter (or opened) try to start the bike while sraying with a carb cleaner spray through the air box towards the carbs.Don't spray too much.Little bit each time and do not twist the gas grip.Choke it too if you want.It may help.Of course before all that set the oil level to normal.
