The float in the carberator is sticking. Clean the carberator and if that doesn't work you can put an inline gas shut off.

Gas and oil squirting into air box


First of all, there should be no gas/oil mixture on this bike. If it is a crankcase breather and it has gas coming out of it then it means that gas has ran into your engine and diluted the oil. Check the oil and if this is the case then drain and change immediately. As for the gas getting into the crankcase; if you have a float stuck in the open position in your carburetor the gas freely runs through it, then into the cylinder where it then leaks past the piston and into the case. I hope you engine isn't filled with gas but it sounds like it is. If this is what happened then the oil change will fix your problem. If so, take the carburetors apart and make sure the needles and seats are clean and move freely to prevent it from happening again.

Smoking bad and bad miss and smells like gas in the oil on 1992 toyota paseo


I would look towards the fuel pump to see if there is any possibly way that it has failed and is leaking gas in to the oil. I have heard of that happening.

Another possible thing to check is ring wear, if your rings are to worn you will have blow-by which could cause gas in your oil.. Do or have done a compression test and see what your compression is. If the compression is low squirt a little oil in to the low cylinder and retest if the pressure comes up your rings are bad and that could be where your gas in your oil is coming from. If the pressure does not come up you have a bad valve. Seems to me that there should be no more then 15% max between high and low, any more then that needs to be repaired.

Tire issue is due to improper camber angle, needs to have a front-end alignment done. The sputtering after an oil change could be due to whoever changed it didn't put the proper grade of oil in. Other possibilities could be bad gas, fuel filter however that doesn't make since seeing how it happened after an oil change. So check to make sure oil level is not overfilled, and the filter is inserted correct.

I would not mess with Oil Treatments, what you have been doing is fine. I would change the fuel filter, if it hasn't been done for a while. Also a transmission service. Check your belts and hoses.

Have an oil pressure test done.
One of 4 things could possibly cause that.
Bad oil pressure sending unit.
just the oil sending unit.
weak oil pump.
low oil---check oil, see if it needs any.

F150 oil pump Replacement


If it has oil pressure at idle I would say the pump is good. I would try hooking up a mechanical gauge(oil pressure tester) and drive the truck with this on it to verify the pressure. The funny thing is what you are describing to me sounds like a restricted oil filter.

I had Walmart give me an ambassador package oil change years ago on a grand am and the nimrods never tightened the filter and the same thing happened to me. Even though I put oil in the engine seized within 48 hrs. Good luck! Get your documents ready because whether or not your engine fails you will still want to sue the oil replacement service worker for subsequent damages due to negligence.

I happen to own a 2002 alero, and alot of people says the same thing about theirs. You may need to replace you head gasket and run more antifreeze than water.
