How long since a tune-up? Can you check for applicable trouble codes? Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Check that the pressure will hold for a bit, everything off.
Smell of crankcase oil dip-stick, if it smells like gas, I wouldn't drive it till you fix the problem and change oil and filter as many times as it takes to get rid of the gas.

Well I have a 1977 Dodge sportsmen rv at first was told the carburetor needed work well a couple screws we're loose and now I smell gas on the oil dip stick don't know why?


My guess would be the carb is dumping raw gas into the crankcase oil.
I'd change the oil quick as I can.
If its not running rich all the time, it could be a bad float letting gas overflow into the cylinders.

How frequent to change engine oil


Depending on your usage and recomendation by manufaturer.
Alternatively you can remove the dip stick fitted with the oil filler hole in your bike. Observe the colour and smell stiking to the dip stick. If the oil colour is very black and smells like burnt, replace the oil. Use the same grade.

White smoke from BMW 740i exhaust


white were? the exhaust tip, or other spot, long pipe, name spot?
white, is steam or OIL.
oil smells like burnt oil and takes for ever to dispate
steam is water, and smells , sweet due to 50% glycol inside.
and goes away fast.
but all Gas engines make water at all the time running as a by product of combustion and for sure on cold days, some times full time cold
due to climate effects.
does your neighbors car smoke at same time, (look)
bingo , dew point.

all gas engine smoke cold started, (steam)

so first find out what it is,
take the dip stick out of a hot engine. stalled, drip it on the exhaust
see that smoke ,smell it? that is burning oil
now you know what you have, steam or oil. smoke.

Engine back fires and has gas smell in oil


Sounds like a leaking or stuck open fuel injector might be allowing gas to leak down into the crankcase, thinning the oil.

I have a 1995 chevy astro van that throws out gray smoke from the exhaust which later turns to black smoke the smoke also smells like gas


May be a head gasket. Anti-freeze will burn white / gray. Make sure you are not losing coolant. Look at your oil on the dip for any signs of foaming / water.
Take care.

White smoke from motor


Checking oil when it's HOT with mask the coolant oil mix formation.
Check the oil when the engine is COLD. If it has creamy/milkshake like oil in the engine crack case then it's a real bad sign.
Check the oil cap when it's COLD. Like for the creamy/milkshake non-oil like cream.
Are you loosing coolant?
Keep a log book on the coolant lost.
Does it over heat or does it the engine ran hotter compare to few months ago?

To pin point a blowing headgasket you will need
1)coolant system compression tester
or
2)chemical reaction test for combustion test gas
If it's the org. engine from 1986,with over 86,000 then blown headgasket is a good possiblity.
Tow it to the shop and let the pro to do the coolant pressure test and combustion gas test.
A full head gasket job with head re-surface (if it can be re-use) is worth it.
Shop around on well estiblished independent shops.
Fix the blown head gasket at the first stage of failure can safe you thousand on a head replacement.

Gas entered the exhaust system and then oil reservoir. I got the gas out exhaust change oil. Mower runs but in question is gas still entering both places.


the little solenoid on the bottom of your carb is letting gas flow while it is not runnung.therfore gas gets into your oil.About an 80.00 part..or you could just turn your gas valve off when your done mowing.but still you would have to eventually replace that part.hope this helps

Gas smell in oil


The white strip of fluid on the oil is a slight amount of coolant getting into the oil . The water could be from condensation on the dip stick. I would drain the oil and just put regular recommended oil in it with a new filter. I would pull the spark plugs and check for any coolant or oil residue on them.Then drive the vehicle a little and check the performance. If there is unusual noise from the engine then or blue smoke from the tailpipe the engine has internal damage.

Assuming the engine performance stays the same. There could be a fuel injector sticking intermitantly.
