Alot of exhaust when driving. makes a puttering noise. exhaust is blue. Smells like oil is burning.

Causes can be:Worn piston rings or a score in the cylinder wall or a defective PCV valve (excessive crankcase pressure) or the crankcase is overfilled, check all of them.

My Troybilt 4 cycle trimmer, it is leaking oil.It appears to be blowbackinto airfilter. How do I fix that

Most of the time this is due to overfilling crankcase with oil. They way Troybilt (MTD) designed how to check level could have been greatly improved. Usually the oil capacity in crankcase should not exceed 2.02fl oz. (60 ml) and about the only way to get that correct is to drain it and put exact amount required in.
Hope this helps

How do i change the oil?

Details vary according to the model, but generally:
1. Run the motor long enough that the crankcase is warm.
2. Put the bike up on the center stand.
3. Put a plastic dish/bowl that will hold a few liters underneath the oil drain (usually a bolt on the bottom of the crankcase, check a manual for exact location. )
4. Using the correct wrench, loosen the oil drain.
5. With rubber gloves on, hold the bottom of the oil drain bolt with one hand while you remove the bolt from the bike with the other hand. If the bolt (which may be magentized) has bits of metal clining to it, remove these with a cloth or paper towel.
6. The oil will drain into the pan. Rock the bike back and forth gnetly to get the last few drops out.
7. Now locate the oil filter and remove it (check manual again for how to do this). Replace with fresh filter.
8. Replace oil drain bolt, tightening to correct setting.
9. Fill with fresh oil to the correct amount. Bike should be ready to go.
10. Put used oil into container with lid, have it recycled at a grage or auto service scentre.

Engine started leaking oil near the back of the engine and collects on deak

Hi, You need to clean the engine thoroughly with some Purple Power or Fantastic and a garden hose. Then run the engine for a short time and locate exactly where the oil is coming from on the engine. One place to pay close attention to is directly under the cylinder where the crankcase mates with the oil sump. Some engines have gaskets fail directly under the cylinder because A; there are no bolts securing the oil sump to the crankcase in that location and B; it is an area of very high heat. I am assuming this is a push mower and does not have overhead valves? If it does have OHV, keep an eye around the bottom of the valve cover. Lastly, the crankcase breather cover gasket or the rubber tube the goes from the breather to the air filter housing may have come off or it may be cracked. But first things first, you must get the engine clean to determine where the oil is coming from. After establishing the location of the leak, post back with the info and I will provide direction to make the repair.Kevin,

Will not run.

It is possible, when you tipped it over, the pump cylinder filled with oil. Sometimes if you let it sit for a day or two the oil will leak back down into the crankcase. If it doesn't or you want to use it right away, you'll have to remove the pump head and get any oil out of the cylinder. Make sure you put the valve plate assembly back on exactly as it came off. If there isn't an oil-in-the-cylinder problem it's possible the pump was run without oil in the crankcase and the con-rod bearing's seized to the motor eccentric or the piston locked in the cylinder.

Oil is getting on air breather 2004 ram hemi

oil getting on a breather can indicate excessive crankcase pressure. Check all the `crankcase breathers and the valve cover breathers.

if the crankcase has been overfilled with engine oil. The crankshaft has to "beat" it's way through the oil and thus acts as a pump and sends oil all over the internal surfaces of the crankcase.

If the engine cylinders have developed 'blow-by" they will also contribute to an increase in crankcase pressure which will be evident by oil in the breathers. The fumes / pressure in the crankcase are designed to be removed by the engine breather system, and drawn through the engine etc.

I hope this info helps.

On my 2003 fat boy all oil from tank is in engine and won't return whats the cause ? runs real rough

Ok, I'm not exactly sure what the problem is on your Twin Cam but I can assure you that it is oil pump related. One the earlier models with the external pump, you had two pumps in one body. One pump was a "feed" pump that pumped oil into the engine. The other pump was a "scavenger" pump that pumped oil out of the engine back to the tank.

When Harley designed the Twin Cam engine, they employed a better design of pump inside the engine. It's located in the gear case along with the cams. I do not know too much about the Twin Cam engine as I specialize on the older Evolution, Shovelhead, and Panhead engnes. The older engines had a breather gear that used the crankcase pressure built up inside the engne to blow the oil from the crankcase into the gear case. I don't know if the Twin Cam still uses that method of getting the oil out of the crankcase and into the gear case.

So, with my limited knowledge of the oil pump on the Twin Cam, I'd say that this is the problem. You need to find someone that is familiar with the construction of the pump. It may be that the entire pump is bad or something as simple as a sheared pin.

Good Luck

Water in engine oil

don't know exactly what yours looks like, but if the pump bolts directlly to the crankcase, and if the seal is bad on the the pump, it could force water into the crankcase of the engine, when it is pumping, the seal on the engine is made to hold oil in the motor, and dirt out, but it doesn't take much pressure to push into the engine

Clunk from engine/crankcase area

Try at stationary under heavy load with clutch to isolate, sounds serious, I'd check all transmission connections are right before riding again.
