Hello

This is a Briggs and Stratton Engine Model 95212-0138-E1.
I Use Synthetic SAE 30 Engine Oil in All my 4 Cycle Engines.
For the Engien Heating Up Problem;
1- A Damaged Flywheel Key will Cause this Problem.
2- Have you Removed the Blower Housing (metal engien Cover) and made Sure the Area Under the Blower Housing is Clean of Trash and Debris?
3- Are Any of the Cooling Fins on the Flywheel Missing?

Why would the oil light stay on?


That depends on the type of oil warning light being displayed. There are 2 types of warning lights

1. Low oil pressure light which all cars have
2. low oil level light which some cars have.

Low OIL PRESSURE warning means the oil pressure is below minimum and when this happens there will be insufficient lubrication of many engine parts because sufficient oil cannot get to all parts of the engine it is required to lubricate. Until the cause is identified and rectified the warning light will remain. If you run your engine with low oil pressure you will cause expensive damage to internal engine components.

Low OIL LEVEL warning means the oil in the sump has dropped to a dangerously low level (which may be due to an oil leak or abnormal oil consumption by the engine.) This warning means the oil level needs to be topped up and the warning will stay displayed until you top up the oil. Running the engine with low oil will cause expensive engine damage.
Since it is a 2 minute job, Oil levels should be checked fortnightly as a minimum, together with radiator coolant and power steering fluid levels, if you run the car most days each week as most people do.

It is possible for a warning light to remain displayed when the cause has been dealt with because there is a problem with the sender unit. However it needs to be established with alternative checks that the problem has been fixed before investigating if there is a problem with the warning light itself.

Low oil level reading is on my 2008 gs 350 but the level is ok


how many miles do you have on the car. Is it a low oil level or oil pressure indication and at what engine speed does it come on? Does it do it when the engine is cold or when hot? If the oil level indication is wrong, then you need to replace the level sensor (mounted in the oil pan)

Honda gx160 5.5 hp getting too hot


On most of these engines since they are air cooled you need to have all of the metal shielding that came with the engine on it. These help direct the flow of air from the flywheel fins to cool the engine. You may have to remove the metal shields and clean the fins if you have an older motor that has been run in really dirty areas. If air can't flow between the fins it can't cool. I will mention oil level just because oil also helps cool the engine how ever most of these engines will not run if the oil is low due to an oil pressure switch that prevents it from running if the oil level is too low.

How much oil dose a 2004 dyne lowrider hold


Your dyna should take three quarts of oil. The oil level will be above the "FULL HOT" mark until you start the engine and fill the new oil filter with oil. Start the engine and run it for one minute. Recheck the oil level with the dip stick. It should be in the safe operating zone. Do not top off the oil level. Do not add oil until it drops to that Add One Quart level.

Good Luck

What type of oil and how much do I use with the honeywell 1000w generator?


Engine Oil Recommendations

Use 4-stroke oil, or equivalent high detergent, premium

quality motor oil certified to meet or exceed U.S. automobile

manufacturer's requirements for API Performance

Class SF or better. SAE 15W-40 is recommended for general,
all-temperature use.

NOTICE

Engine oil is a major factor affecting engine performance

and service life. Non-detergent and 2-stroke engine oils will

damage engine and are not recommended.

• Be sure to use engine oils specified under "Engine Oil

Recommendations."

It is very important to maintain proper level of engine oil to

keep engine in good running condition.

• Check engine oil level prior to each use. Refill engine

oil if oil level is low.

FIGURE 17: Recommended Oil Viscosity

Crankcase pressure can cause hot engine oil to

spray out of engine fill hole. Hot engine oil can

cause severe burns.

• ALWAYS stop engine before removing the oil fill cap.

How do I check and possibly replace the engine oil pressure sensor in a 2006 GMC Envoy Denali?


Oil Pressure Test Check for proper oil pressure at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge. A tachometer may also be needed, as some specifications may require running the engine at a specific RPM.
  1. While the engine is cold, locate and remove the oil pressure sending unit.
  2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, connect a mechanical oil pressure gauge and, if necessary, a tachometer to the engine.
  3. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  4. Note and record the oil pressure reading when the engine is cold. The engine may need to run at a specified RPM, if so check the vehicle's specification.
  5. Run the engine until normal operating temperature is reached.
  6. Check the oil pressure reading again with the engine hot and record the value. Turn off the engine.
Compare the hot oil pressure reading to the specification. If the reading is low, check the cold pressure reading against the specification. If the cold pressure is well above the specification, and the hot reading was lower than the specification, the engine may have the wrong viscosity oil. Change the oil, making sure to use the proper grade and quantity, and then repeat the test.
Low oil pressure readings could be attributed to internal component wear, pump related problems, a low oil level, or oil viscosity that is too low. High oil pressure readings could be caused by an overfilled crankcase, too high of an oil viscosity or a faulty pressure relief valve.

Where is the oil pressure sensor located on a 1996 murcury cougar


Look for the oil pressure sending unit on the block or the cylinder head on the V-6 or V-8 models. --- OIL PRESSURE TEST Check for proper oil pressure at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge (as opposed to relying on a factory installed dash-mounted gauge). A tachometer may also be needed, as some specifications may require running the engine at a specific rpm.
  1. With the engine cold, locate and remove the oil pressure sending unit.
  2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, connect a mechanical oil pressure gauge and, if necessary, a tachometer to the engine.
  3. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  4. Check the oil pressure reading when cold and record the number. You may need to run the engine at a specified rpm, so check the specifications.
  5. Run the engine until normal operating temperature is reached (upper radiator hose will feel warm).
  6. Check the oil pressure reading again with the engine hot and record the number. Turn the engine OFF.
  7. Compare your hot oil pressure reading to specification. If the reading is low, check the cold pressure reading against the chart. If the cold pressure is well above the specification, and the hot reading was lower than the specification, you may have the wrong viscosity oil in the engine. Change the oil, making sure to use the proper grade and quantity, then repeat the test. Low oil pressure readings could be attributed to internal component wear, pump related problems, a low oil level, or oil viscosity that is too low. High oil pressure readings could be caused by an overfilled crankcase, too high of an oil viscosity or a faulty pressure relief valve.

LAWN BOY MOWER WILL NOT START WHEN HOT. WHY? STARTS FINE WHEN FIRST STARTED.


Hello PANDJ4952, Check your oil level first. If low or a dark color it needs changing. I suggest you change spark plug and air filter too. With the engine cold clean the fins around the spark plug location of caked up mud or clogs of grass including under the mower where the blade rotates. Please let me know of the results.
