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.

SOURCE: Poor running engine on my lawn mower

I think you need more than a screw adjustment in the carburetor. It sounds as if you need a full tuneup. This means air filter, gas filter , carb. rebuild ,spark plug etc. Good luck. donnyb60

SOURCE: can't find location of oil filter on engine, manual shows where it should be but it's not there. Model#

If your model # ends in 707, as in 42A707, it does not have an oil filter. You would see it sticking out of the left side if it had one, as in 42A777. You have an opposed twin,a very good engine, unfortunatly, not made anymore. Most of them did not have an oil filter. Dwain

SOURCE: how to adjust valves on briggs and stratton 17.5

Remove spark plug
Remove cover from engine that covers the flywheel
Remove rockerarm cover or valve cover
Find TDC (top dead center) by rotating the flywheel by hand and your finger over the spark plug hole as you rotate the flywheel you will feel pressure against you finger at some point then stop.
This is the compression stroke it is called now find a long slim round piece of plastic or plastic ink pen to stick in the spark plug hole (If you are careful a slim screwdriver can be used ) and find the piston top, then slowly rotate flywheel again (cw) as the piston is moving up pushing the plastic up as you rotate the flywheel slowly.
a max. piston up or tdc as you turn you will feel and then the piston starts to go the other way,at that transition this is tdc (piston is on top of stroke) leave it there,,both valves should be closed at that point.
Have a feeler gauge and set the exhaust valve at a loose .002 and the intake a loose .004 be sure engine is cold when valves are adjusted
Feeler gauge goes in between the rocker arm tip and valve stem top for each valve setting.
Note the rocker adjustment at the push rod side of each valve by tightening and loosening to make adjustments,lock your adjustments in place and rotate flywheel a few times and recheck settings

1) check plug for being carbon fouled or fuel fouled. Even though it fires, it may not be firing correctly
2) make sure you have compression 75-100 psi. since the compression release so you can pull the rope works off of the exhaust valve, you may not get anymore than that.
3) Is there water or debris in the float bowl

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your local lawn & garden dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

    1. Remove the dipstick, if equipped. Tilt the mower deck with the air filter or spark plug side up, and position some newspaper and an oil pan or jug beneath the mower. Use a 3/8" drive socket wrench and extension (no socket) to turn the plug counter clockwise (see photo at right), allowing the old oil to drain.

Tipping the machine on its side can allow engine oil to enter the air filter box via the engine breather, this will then soak the paper element air filter, you will need to remove and replace the filter.

Change you oil and while you are at it change the filter. Do not run until you have completed. You risk engine damage by loosing too much oil while running it.

Hi, i just swapped my elec flymo for a briggs and stratton 35 lawn mower, however when ever i start it it coughs and splutters and wont run for more then 30 secs and is also spitting out oil from exhaust....


if the motor has been on its side the oil has runs out thru the muffler and air filter. briggs are famous for doing that. let it sit overnight and remove the air cleaner and you see is fill of oil. next day take the spark plug and clean it and check the gap then put it back, take carburator cleaner and spray some inside the carburator, check the oil level and start.if it wont start then is time to clean carburator. the air filter if is wet in oil and is the dry type. get a new one.

Oil appearing at exhaust, smokey, briggs and stratton lawm mower.


You will need to replace or clean the air filter, and probably the spark plug. Do not operate the mower for some hours to allow the oil drain (inside the engine). Check oil level and fill it if necessary. Some oil remaining in the exhaust should be burnt next time the lawnmower operates.You will see smoke at the beginning, that will be normal (burnt oil). Hope this helps!

I have a gas Yard Machine Lawn Mower by Briggs and Stratton. I cannot keep it running and it is loosing oil. What do I need to do?


May be time for a tune up. Replace spark plug, air filter, change oil and sharpen blade. You may have some water in your gas. I would check to see where it is leaking oil. It may be the oil seal on the pto(bottom) side of the engine leaking and needs to be replaced.

White smoke and oil spewing out of troy built briggs and stratton 650 series 190cc mower


Check your oil level. If it is way over full, smell it to see if it smells like gasoline. If it does, you have a carburetor leaking gas into the engine crankcase. If you recently had the mower over on its side for blade changing or inspection, you have gotten oil up on top of the piston and it should burn off in a few minutes of running. Check your air filter to see if it is soaked with oil, replace it if it is.
