Husqvarna 22hp Oil blowing breather Problems

22hp ride on lawn tractor is blowing oil from rear of motor. I thought is was fuel leaking from tank or fuel lines. As enging gets hotter a fine mist of oil appears to be discharging from rear and is misted toward fuel lines.Looks like it is coming from a small bolt or plug hole. Advice please

Hello sir, check to see if the engine is over full on oil and gas in the engine .this will make starter drag eventually ruining starter.this is the only thing i can think of other than engine having high compression except valves not opening and the pressure relief valve not working,or engine low on oil 30 WT, is also important to keep good oil in engine and full. the solenoids under the carburetor will go bad,and cause flooding, if you have one. make sure you keep battery charged. if it is follow these directions ,well it is a simple fix,but a lot to correct problem, parts needed,1 new spark plug,1 new solenoid,1 quart of 30wt oil,1 pan to catch old oil in. tools needed,1 spark plug wrench,1,7/16 or 1/2 or 9/16 open wrench,pen&paper. ok, empty fuel tank or clamp off fuel line,make a drawing as how the wires are connected to the solenoid,white & black wires,unplug wire fittings,remove solenoid, in stall new solenoid,plug wires in. now drain oil & gas out of engine,remove old spark plug,important so follow directions,after oil is drained plug is out crank engine so to clean out cylender of excess oil & gas,it would be a good ideal to let oil drain for a while. add oil & spark plug,engine will smoke for a while but should clear up.when you go to the parts store you will need engine horse power,engine brand,mobel number,type number,parts should cost around 50.00. including everything you need,check oil often you can put a inline fuel shutoff in the fuel line about $5.00, or replace solenoids for $40.00.hope this helps,don't forget the 4 thumbs up,any comments welcome,thank you,,after you need to check this, ``

Blowing white smoke out of exhaust

sounds like it is still overfilled ,, oil is leaking on the back side of the piston .. or may be a blown head gasket and being overfilled was just a coincidence if it is a briggs motor I would be suspect of a head gasket.

What are the steps to removing gas tank from Husqvarna 48 riding lawn mower?

Before you do that check the breather hole in the gas tank cap - that's the most common problem. Leaking is probably a faulty pipe, especially if you've disconnected them. Don't rely on push fit only - use hose clips.

Oil seeping out of vent hole on fuel pump. runs for a while then smokes and cuts off

Blown OHV head gasket or bad rings will usually push oil out the vent port as it also the fuel vacuum//pressure relieving port.

Husqvarna 6021p won't start

Make sure spark plug wire is connected and that plug is not blackened and fouled out. Also check your fuel filter (plugged?), the handbar safety lever & it pull cable and make sure it is opening the breather assembly down at the motor or closing the proper switch (unsure of the setup) Those are typically the most common problems. Good Luck

John Deere L118 stalls after it runs for about 3 mins. runs fine hard to turn over after it stalls. Have replaced battery changed gas replaced fuel filter. After sitting for 2-3 mins will start again but...

Those motors are funny. Oil level and oil delivery are essential. They have saftey shut off sensors if there is any problem with oil level. There aren't many hours on the motor for that to be an issue but check oil level, check it's color. If it's anyting but nice gold color (considering the low hours), you may have found your problem. Change filter, and flush (don't just drain and replace).

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
