No it's sounds like the float in carb is stuck I've had 3 motors do this I put a fuel shut off in the line after I cleaned the carb out and rebuilt it. The problem is the gas breaking down an gumming up the float in carb. Drain the oil and an run some oil thur it to get the old gas out make sure you clean the carb out to.

Does it have an oil filter that needs to be changed?


Yes, all riding lawn mowers have an oil filter. These are not small cycle motors which burn the oil with the gasoline. Please see your user manual or search for the advanced maintenance manual for your riding lawnmower online for specific details.

WHY IS THERS GAS IN MY CRANKCASE


Hello
Check that when you switch off you mower and leave it that the carb is not leaking in to the combustion chamber and then past the rings in to the crank case.
Thanks

I have put two stroke oil in my four stroke lawn mower. What should I do


If you put the 2-stroke oil in the crank case you will need to drain the crankcase oil and refill with the appropriate oil. If you added the 2-stroke oil to the gasoline, you can siphon a gallon or so out of the tank and replace with fuel only to dilute the oil. It might smoke a bit will be OK.
Good luck.

Gasoline fills the crankcase


Yes it is. The float needle and seat are leaking and need to be replaced. I'm assuming it it a Briggs and Stratton engine. Just replacing the rubber tipped needle usually will not stop the leakage, the pressed-in brass seat also needs to be replaced and pressure tested. This would really need to be done by a shop. Not a hard job, just requires specialized tools to remove and install seat and pressure test..........

TRACTOR BLEW WHITE SMOKE, AND STARTS TO SPUTTER


Start with making sure your oil lever is not over full. If it is it may be getting into the crankcase breather hose that goes to the carburetor hence the white smoke. Sometimes also you can blow a gasket in the breather system and it will do the same. Check for oil leaks in the breather system. Hope this helps. donnyb60
