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!

5 hp briggs and stratton mower is hard starting when hot.


Most times the briggs engines start hard when hot because the exhaust valve is leaking at the seat.If you hear a hissing noise from the muffler when you are trying to start instead of a good crisp pop it that is a good indication the valve is burnt.To be sure you would have to have a compression or leak down test done on engine.A valve job is not an easy job if you don't have the right tools.
