If fuel is getting into the oil, I would say the needle and seat or float in carb is not stopping fuel flow. I would check carb again and adjust float level. Change or install an inline fuel filter too. Surging is almost always carb related. If problem persists after checking carb again, check governor springs. If they have been bent at all after removing carb, they can be bad. If you replace new governor springs and surging still exists, try doing a static setting on carb/governor. If your unit has an oil/centrifugal governor, move governor arm in the direction that opens throttle valve in carb all the way, hold in place, loosen nut on governor arm and grab small tang that goes inside engine and turn in the same direction you moved governor arm, rotate this until it stops, hold in place and tighten nut on bottom of governor arm. This is called a static/factory setting. Make sure throttle cable is in high position when doing this. Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!

SOURCE: john deere 425 mower won't start

The ignition switch module is likely to be the problem,they seem to quit for no good reason.The safety relays and fuses are built into the board that comes with the switch and will most likely fix your problem.

Engine oil does a couple of things, lubricates and cools. Your crankcase probably takes about 2 qts. Fill it to full and park it over something clean to see if there are leaks.

For your engine to run it needs fuel and air. If the engine is dying, more than likely you have a fuel/air issue. Check your fuel lines for leaks, replace your fuel filter. Clean or replace your air cleaner. Make sure your tank cap can breathe, so air can replace the gas going to the engine.

Fuel problem with John Deere 23hp engine


time to pull the hose off the fuel pump coming from the tank and drain the tank and check flow of gas coming from tank hose, and possibly inline fuel filter is plugged or there is junk in your tank/line from tank not letting enough fuel to run to pump so pump can pump it to carb !

Engine surges won't run with out choke and then it stalls


If the engine surges and won't run without choke it is starving for fuel. Best place to start is the fuel filter. After the fuel filter, pull the fuel line off of the carburetor and place a container under the fuel line to catch the fuel. Crank the engine over and watch for the amount of fuel being pumped through the line. There should be a good stream of fuel with each pulse from the pump. Chances are the pump diaphragm is getting weak and it cannot keep enough fuel in the carb to run proper. Check those items and let me know if it helps, Daniel.

Don't run it! Diesel fuel is more of an oil whereas gas is more volitile... Avoid starting or running to prevent any damage to your engine!
