Sounds like it is running too rich on fuel. Try resetting the carb adjustment screws. Turn them in until it starts to stall and them turn the screw back out 1/4 turn. It may also be a partially clogged muffler or the screen on top of the engine may be clogged. In rare instances it may need the valves adjusted.

I stored my Briggs and Stratton Murray 4.5 Lawnmower at an angle and oil came out the exhaust.


Just let the mower sit on the level for a while. Then be sure to check the oil level before starting the engine. It'll probably blow some oil smoke, but then it should clear up and be fine. You should only tip your mower in one direction, ever. That is down on the handlebars; up on the front. This way, the fluids have no where to run. Also be sure the gas tank is not full or fuel will run out the vent in the cap.

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!

14hp ohv engine getting very hot,briggs


Sounds like a mice in your muffler. Its stuck, stop using it, you'll be damaging the valve on the motor. Remove it and test it. Try to remove thing in, i know some people put it in the fireplace to turn it red and burn things (like mice) inside and open up things...
