SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton 22hp v twin OHV smoking badly

First thing to do is pull your dipstick and check for broken or missing O-ring also as you pull it, look to make certain that it was seated properly and all the way locked. If either condition exists, you will be leaking into the crankcase which will cause your symptoms

these are common for doing this ,if you dont want to pull it down and hone the cyl. then i would use a heavier oil say 20w/50and that will probabley solve your problem

SOURCE: how do set valve lash

Turn the motor until the piston is at TDC. Look through the spark plug hole. piston to top of the cylinder. Then set them like you would any OHC rocker arm. BE very careful with the exhaust valve adjustment. There is like a mini disc on top of the valve stem spring keeper. If you get it too loose on a vertical engine it can drop out and it will take you forever to find the little bugger!

Below is only a recommendation....

I don't know how many hours that are on this engine your working on but... I would recommend you hand lap the valves with grinding compound if you know it has high engine hours. It will make it easier to start and have more power. The exhaust valves on these engines get very noteable black gunk buildup in the seat to the point you can not see the "valve to seat" mating ring on the valve head. The heads are not hard to remove... (One at a time) just time consuming. It can be a chore getting the valve push rods aligned with the engine horizontal. Most of the time and I know good Mechs don't like to hear this.. you can reuse the cyl head gasket on this model due to the design. Once in a while they break not very often.

The valve springs have keyhole locks on the keeper.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Oil keeps blowing out of the dipstick what could be causing this. Thank you

oil blowing out of dip stick normally means that the engine is getting sump pressure. this is normally caused by wear on the piston rings where the compression of the engine is passing down past the pistons and causing pressure in the sump and then blowing the oil up through the dip stick tube. can also be caused by having a head gasket gone as well as the compression is being blown down through the oil gallery . hope this is helpful to you

What's your question?my Isuzu 4ja1 engine .my problem is the oil comes from deep stick

i think you mean
when running the engine
the DIP STICK seal as it fits the dip stick tube end. leaks oil
this a bad PCV valve.
excess crank case pressures.... cause by not doing service on car.
or worse a very worn out engine with huge blow by gassed.
is engine miles high? over 300k? miles?
or the dips stick seal there is bad.... looking at it tells you that.

I have a 1988 chevy z71 an is leaking oil on passenger side valve cover an is blowing oil out of the dip stick tube but isn't that much oil could that be the pcv valve clogged up

from what you described oil out dipstic tube your building pressure make a point to make sure that pcv (positive crankcase vent) valve is working and all tubing is in good condition its made to remove all pressure in motor and removing vapor that forms in motor I really hopes this helps if not please let me know good luck .

Renault Scenic 2001 - burning oil, good compressions

That shoul be enough compression and if same that is a good sign check for bad Breather or PCV valve, engine has to breath or pressure will force oil. also HOW MUCH OIL DO YOU HAVE / What does the dip stick read. Could be bad intake valve seals / Valve guides.

I have a problem with oil blowing back through the dipstick in my 1994 Jeep Wrangler YJ 6 cyl engine... I have built a few engines of various types over the years and have done all my maintenance all my...

No solution from me, Note: Sounds like your pretty familiar with the Positive crankcase ventilation (PCV). You said the valve is pulling a vacuum I am assuming it is from the intake manifold side correct? With the PCV was working sure seems like it would keep the oil from coming out of the dipstick tube. I am stumped as well, sounds almost like too much blow by from the cyclinders you already stated that with the possible broken compression rings?

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

Oil blow back from out of the dip stick, what may be causing this and how to resolve the problem.

Time has come to retire this vehicle to the recycle plant and get yourself a nice new SMALL car thats fuel efficient.Most obvious cause is worn pistons and rings

okay blow by is in the combustion chamber ... now if you wanna see whats happening disconnect the coil or pull the fuel fuse so it wont run but tries to start ... when you turn the key .. now put a pressure spark plug gauge to test the compression one by one to each cylindar record the results if you low pressure you can add a little oil in the spark plug hole and a 1/3 pint and put the gauge back on and try to start look for differences think if a test was low and you add oil in the cylindar and test it again and its higher compression the piston rings are wearing . if you get the same low reading with or with out oil the valves are not sealing ..have a Blast !!! Im me if you need ....

Oil coming out of dipstick

What engine? The oil level is good, not to high? If yes, it has too much crankcase pressure. Change the PCV valve and check the crankcase air filter. Also make sure you have vacuum at the PCV.
