If you have fuel comming from the carbuator area it is usually a flooding problem.either you pulled it to many times with the choke on,or the needle inside the carbuator is bad.to fix the first problem, pull the spark plug out,pull it about ten 10 to twelve 12 times.reinstall the spark plug.squeeze the trigger and pull again with saw in full throttle .it should start......second problem is more complacated.you need to rebuild the carbuator.......one more thing that could cause oil and fuel from carbuator is too much oil in fuel mixture.that would be the first thing i would look into......let me know if this helps.........

Should there be any kind of rubber washer inside the Petrol Cap to make a seal so that petrol does not leak out when mower is turned on its side


yes there should. BUT you really shouldnt tip a mower on its side. If its a 4 stroke mower then theres a good chance engine oil will come up through the breather and into your air filter and carb,or into the exhaust if tipped the other way. As a rule most mowers should be tipped backwards so the spark plug is upward.

Why does my 6.5 hp kohler lawn mower keep pulling oil into carb air filter


Its to stop the dust blocking the filter. The filter should be cleaned with petrol every 4 to 6 months to remove the dust & oil build up, cleaned in/with petrol and re-oiled. Its also good to clean the filter housing each time you clean the filter

Oil leaking out on yardman mower


You haven't supplied a lot of information but generally when this happens it is due t the mower being tipped the wrong way.
If you must look under the mower then tip it back with the handles to the ground and front wheel in the air.
Now to rectify your problem; The air-filter will probably be saturated with oil. It will probably be the cartridge type which is not serviceable. Purchase a new filter (take your old filter so the sale person can compare like for like). Before you refit the new filter, take out the sparkplug, it will probably be saturated in oil - wash it in petrol, let it dry then refit it. The engine should start and belch out great quantities of smoke. Don't be alarmed this will burn away. Once the smoke has cleared, check the oil level, fit the air filter and mow your lawn.

6.5 briggs and stratton leaking motor oil through the filter area


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.

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.

Oil leaking from air filter area of push mower and mower smoking


You have overfilled the oil tank. White smoke is only a hassle, not a serious problem. You have to empty some of the oil and change the gas. Clean the air filter if it is the spongy type with Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, rinsing and drying it well before reinstalling. The white smoke will stop soon as it is still in the gas that is in the carb. If the case is that you haven't filled it with oil prior to this smoke then you must be mowing on a hillside and the gas tank was on the lower side allowing oil to leak into the gas. Same solution.

Nannie what can be wrong with my power devil petrol lawn mower the engine wont keep running then cuts out petrol and oil ok


Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.

If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent
