Oil coming out of air filter

I have a Troy Bilt lawn mower model 11AA26M011. It runs great, starts easy. Oil level is good. While mowing the lawn it started smoking and oil started coming out of the air filter leaving a small puddle of oil. I cleaned everything up and it ran fine. After mowing the lawn several times with no problem, it did it again.

Look for a crankcase ventilation tube or such, It may be covered with grass dust and stuff, is probably a sponge to keep dust out of the motor. Rinse it out, and make sure the airway is clear.

SOURCE: Lawn mower died. Pull rope locked up

remove the spark plug and try to pull the rope. Sometimes the coil can get loose and wedge against the flywheel. if that's not the problem then pour a little oile in the spark plug hole, let it set a bit, if it still won't turn over then you have an internal engine problems. Not very common but it can happen

SOURCE: troy bilt mower won't stay running to cut lawn

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

Dump out old gas. Fill with fresh gas. Always use Stabile in gas. Clean or replace park plug and air filter. Check oil level. All mowers have a low oil start cutoff. 30w oil. If any grey in oil moisture contaminated, dump out old oil and refill. Check fuel line for cracks or leaking. Check primer bulb for cracks, replace if required. Clean outside of carb with carb cleaner to ensure easy choke operation. Remove carb bowl from carb, ensure float hangs down freely. float down fuel flow, float up fuel flow stops. Check bowl screw for hole thru bolt, if so clean out hole.

Own a Troy Bilt self-propelled model #12A-466-M011 for a year now. It worked great when first got it. Now it will not clear the grass underneath so cuts off every 15 feet and have to manually clear grass...


I had the same problem with my Troy-Bilt self propelled lawn mower. You have to use the grass catcher if your grass is high. Also, I mowed wet grass and it made my belt slip off the pulley and created a new problem, somowing wet grass is definitely not a good idea.

Troy bilt mower 6.75 hp smoking too much oil


Check oil level, it could be just excess oil. Also check air filter, it may need cleaning/replacing. Depending on how old the nower is, it could be broken rings in the engine, in that case... time for a new mower. hope this helps!

Oli spils when lawn mover starts


Check your oil level in the engine, normally if oil starts coming out of the air filter, it means you have too much oil in the crankcase. Drain your crankcase to make it the right level, be sure to check you oil level in the engine on level ground. I hope this helped, Good Luck Please rate me, Thanks

My lawnmower won't start


Clean air filter and replace spark plug. If it is wet when you pull it out let it sit and dry out before putting new one in.
