Do not tip the mower over when you clean under neath as well as it will mess things up as well.

A lawn mower that gas comes out of the exhaust.

It sounds like the float in the carburetor is stuck in the open position.This will allow fuel to flow through the carb and out the muffler.

Cub cadet 1440 oil all over engine, in carb, and plugs come out black with oil all over them

Is it coming from the Breather hose? try taking out the air filter and see if that stops it. If air filter is clogged , it will cause Crank Pressure.
Also check oil level if too high it will do this. Sometimes the carb will let gas past and into crankcase filling teh crankcase above 'Full' mark

Overfilled lawn mower and now it is will not start.and when i try to start it it start for 2or 3 sec and stall out and oil come out of the exhaust.

Overfilled with gas or oil? More in likely you tilted your mower over to far to the air fllter side. The oil has soaked your air filter with oil. Change the airfilter and wipe spark plug off.Once it fires up it will smoke untill it burns the oil out carb. Remember never lean mower to air filter side..Good luck

Replaced blade and now oil coming air filter

If you have tipped the machine on its side rather than tipping back on the handles, the engine oil will spill from the engine breather and be fed into the back of the air filter box, you now need to remove the filter cover and filter, run the engine until the smoke clears, if the air filter ia a paper cartridge yo will need to replace with a new filter.

Lawn mower throwing oil from muffler

If the mower has been tipped it will have sent oil up the breather and into the back of the air filter box, this will soak the paper filer and smoke badly, remove the air filter cover and filter, run the engine with these removed until the smoking stops, now replace the filter with a new one, when tipping the mower only tip it back on the handles, not from either side.

Oil coming from line from engine feeding into air

More than likely your air filter is clogged and needs replacing. If that is the situation the carb needs air and is pulling suction on the crankcase breather tube siphoning up oil instead of just burning the vapors. If it was a busted ring the oil would be coming out the exhaust and burning blue smoke.

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.

Oil coming out of my champion lawnmore r484

you likely will need a new air filter and a carb cleaning. when mowers are turned on their side. oil will seep past the piston and if your intake valve was open it can pass thru into the carb and also spoil your air filter. I am assumeing you have a paper air filter. start by taking off your air filter. then you should also pull the spark plug, place a rag covering the hole. then pull the cord a couple times. chances are that you will blow the oil out of the cylinder. I would recommend a oil change.
