Question about Briggs & Stratton Lawn-Boy Insight Series 21-Inch 190cc 650 Series Gas Powered Engine Variable Speed Self-Propelled Lawn Mower
If it won't stay running then that would mean your carb needs cleaned and/or rebuilt. If the oil is comming out of your muffler than oil is getting by the piston and a new mower would be your best bet if you are unable to fix this yourself. Hope this info helps!

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

After you check airflow (i.e. cleaning up the air filter), check fuel flow.
I'm assuming the gas is clean and fresh.
Is the gas flowing from the tank?
Is the gas getting into the carb?
If yes, then the next step is to remove the carb.
Check the diaphram between the carb and the tank, this acts as your fuel pump. Is this diaphram in good condition? If not replace it.
While the carb is removed, clean all the little ports (jets) into the carb with WD-40 or carb spray-on carb/choke cleaner (automotive section of your local auto store). Blow it dry with compressed air (canned or from a air compressor). Replace any gasket so the carb doesn't have seepage when reinstalled.
It may sound a bit daunting, but its an easy job and may stores carry the necessary parts. Try WalMart, or auto stores, if they don't then a good hardware store should. Or, a lawn mower shop should have it.
Good luck, I'm rebuilding doing the same thing to one of my mowers this week. Piece of cake.
