Hi, Check the oil reservoir breather that it's not plugged up. The oil should be returning back to the reservoir not going to the filter. That tells me that there is air being pumped into the engine (oil).
The piston rings could be broken or the carberator needs to be readjusted.

Open the air screw abit more on carb. Then see what happens. Good luck.

First you need resolve the carburetor issue. With it leaking fuel it can flooding the engine causing it to smoke. The leaking can dilute the engine oil by overfilling the crankcase causing smoking and other damage, Once carburetor issue is resolve and it still smokes the initial 10 minute start-up after the rebuild then a compression and leak down will need to done to determine if you have blown head gasket, bad rings, or other problems.

Leaking oil


1. Make sure that the air filter for the carburetor is clean/dirt-free; If not, clean with some gasoline, squeeze out the excess gas, replace and try starting.
2. Check to see if there is too much oil in the sump (the place where oil lives in your machine!) Too much oil may cause machine to slow down or stop. If the oil supply expands it can thwart motion of the parts it lubricates. Check to see if the oil level is above the 'full' line. If it is, drain some (but not in the garden soil!).
3. Another possibility is that the spark plug is fouled; look for oil at the spark gap. If there is no sign oil, clean/replace plug after checking the gap, reinstall plug (no more than a quarter turn more than finger tight) and try again.
4. Ask your mother!

Leaks oil and gas


Your air filter plugged. It can't breathe. The muffler may plugged or little plugged.

6.5 briggs and stratton leaking motor oil through the filter area


How does it run? Is it back firing through the air filter box area? And although your stating it is oil is it actually oil or gasoline that is black due to getting dirty? Don't shoot me! I'm going on what information I'm reading what you submitted. If oil is it enough to show up quickly on the dipstick/engine oil level ? Get back to us and we can go further.

Engine oil coming out of air filter


If the tiller was lying on it`s side the oil would flow into the carb. and filter.
You will have to remove the carb. and wash it out. Check there is not too much oil in the engine.

Oil gushes out of air filter hole.


Oil normally comes out of the air filter area a little bit, but over time, once the oil rings start to wear, more and more oil comes out. So you can either have new oil rings replaced, or you can put in a crank ventillation valve in there and it often helps slow down the oil from entering

Troy built cultivator will only idle 26cc 5yrs old


Problably not sucking air, but not getting enough air. Does your cultivator use gas/oil mix or straight gas? If it is a gas/oil mix the muffler is probably stopped up with carbon and cutting off the air flow. Try removing the muffler and see if it runs better.
