My 2000 r6 is now shutting completely off after only making it a block down the road. Sounds like it is bogging down or flooded before it shuts down and fills the crankcase with gas and oil


dont know this vehicle is it a two stroke or four stroke. if its a two stroke then gas and oil in the crank case is quite normal, it the method of lubrication for a two stroke.

Blowing white smoke


Either the valve in the breather is not working properley and causing a pressure rather than a vacume in the crankcase, or the piron rings or cylinder bore are worn.

Breather problem?


If gas is mixing with the oil you have a carburetor issue.. The flost is not shutting the fuel off and its flooding into the engine and mixing with the oil making it thin. You will have to have the carburetor removed, inspected and either cleaned or a new seat or flost, (if defective) replaced. The oil will also have to be flushed, oil filter (If equipped) replaced.

White smoke blowing from front cylinder on my 79 harley ironhead


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
2. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
3. Restricted breather operation.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides or seals worn or crushed.
7. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump/crankcase junction.

I have a 1982 yamaha 650 seca turbo. I just bought it and was gone for two week on vacation. pon returning, my motocycle leaked gas from the exhaust pipes. So I cleaned my carb. Boiled it in lemon...


When the carburetors over flow enough to fill the exhaust, It is possible that the gas also went into the cylinder and flowed past the rings and into the crankcase. With the engine overly full of gas and oil you could easily pop a seal or blow out a gasket. Check your oil level. If it is too full , change the oil, it will not lubricate properly with all the gas in it. Check that your shaft seal has not popped out. Check the air filter, the breather may have blown oil and gas all over it when you started the bike. Empty your pollution tubes behind the motor( they will drain the air box). Get in the habit of turning your fuel petcock off when not riding. This gas flooding happens randomly in certain models but can happen to any one.

Engine oil appears to be discharging through the air breather. Came on all of the sudden and seems to foul the breather within a short period of time. Rode about 20 miles and stopped within half an hour...


Check your oil level . If it is too high smell the oil to see if it is fouled with gas. If your carb needle sticks the carb may over flow filling the engine. When the engine is too full the breather blows the oil and gas into the air box. Another way to get gas in the oil is if the fuel petcock malfunctions and pours gas into the intake manifold. If the diaphragm of a vacuum petcock gets a hole in it , the engine may flood with gas. The gas flows into motor and past the rings. If you look under the engine in front of the rear wheel you may see a tube with a plug in it. Place a pan under the tube and pull the plug. It is a pollution tube for emptying the crud out of the bottom of the air box. Some Honda's used to fill there engines with gas randomly. If it happened you just changed the oil & air filter, and kept on driving. It just happened for no logical reason. So check your petcock and carbs for problems, change your oil and air filter, and always turn your petcock off when not riding.

I have a Sears Craftsman mower with Tecumseh, major oil leak


On many Tecumseh engines, there is a crankcase breather located under the flywheel. It has a cork gasket to seal the top plate of the breather. Either the rubber breather housing is cracked, or the cork gasket needs replaced.
