Question about Poulan 38-Inch Steel Deck 15.5 HP Briggs & Stratton I/C Engine With 5 Speed
I tipped my poulan riding mower up from the right side, gas leaked, oil in muffler, won't start with new plug...
12.5 B&S 38" 5 speed Poulan 960110196-PE1253LT
If you remove the plug(s) so that the oil all drains back down, and some will drain back out of the muffler, it should start. But give a at least one day, maybe two. You may still have to put new plug(s) in it after it's gone. Check the fuel filter and see if you can see oil in it.
Take off the air cleaner when you get ready to start it and spray just a little starting fluid in the carb, Don't choke it. It will run rough and smoke like crazy, but after it runs a while it should be fine. It make take a few starts before it continues to run. At first it may run just on the starting fluid, but once the plugs fire up enough to burn the oil out it should run on its own.
Be sure and check the oil and if it seems like the slightest amount of gas in it, change the oil and filter.
Let us know how it comes out!
