My 22inch weedeater lawn mower has a oil leak how do I fix it

Where is the oil leaking at? I am assuming if you park it it leaves an oil spot under the mower, If this is the case you need to replace the bottom crankcase oil seal (the seal where the crank come out the bottom of the oil pan).
Hope this helps

Depends where it is leaking from, wash it off to see where it is coming from, it may well be the bottom crankcase seal, once the blade and carrier are removed you should gain acess to this, if it is leaking you will need to remove the seal and replace.

My son may have ran over some damp grass with our Briggs and Stratton 500 series, 158 cc lawn mower and now it smokes and leaks oil out of the exhaust, how do I fix this?

if he tipped it on its side to clean the grass off the oil will burn off but check the oil level he just tipped it so the crank case drained into the cylinder also check the air filter that might have got oil soaked as well

My daughter added oil then proceeded to mow the lawn. mower started smoking then quit. When I got home from work I was able to start the engine one time and it smoked a lot. I turned it off and have not...

With the engine cold, check the oil level. Oil level is quite important especially in a smaller engine. Try to clean all excess oil off engine and body. Then, if you can get it running....check for any leaks. If it is still smoking, it has other issues besides being too full of oil. The oil breather will be full of oil. The oil filter may be saturated with oil. Check those 2 things especially as they allow motor oil to be drawn into the carburetor and cause excessive smoking. Pull out and clean the spark plug. Post back if needed.
