This only occurs when the oil pump is driven by, or the oil tank is pressurized by, an impulse line. Either the oil pump is defective or a duck valve has failed. With what you give us we can isolate it no further. Provide a model number that leads to a UT- number or preferably the UT-number itself and we can be of more help. You can try to find your saw and oiler parts here:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Why is oil in the exhaust and the bus is smoking


Sounds like the oil rings or one of your cylinders has a crack. Do a compression check; all cylinders should be above 100+. I am guessing that the 'smoke' is whitish in color. You can also look at each spark plug; if one or more has oil on it this will tell you which cylinder or cylinders are bad.

Smells like it is running rich? blue coming out pipes. Not tons, but enough,and guys riding behind can smell the bike running rich..


Blue smoke usually indicates that engine oil is being burned; black smoke usually indicates that your engine is running rich. Blue smoke usually has a more "rich" smell; black smoke may smell like gasoline (which is exactly what it is--partially unburned gas). (White smoke would indicate that you're burning coolant--usually the sign of a leaking head gasket.) In your case, I'd hope for black smoke over blue smoke. It's usually much cheaper to fix one than the other.

It's likely that you are having a problem with one (but not all) of your cylinders. One way to diagnose what's going on is to pull the spark plugs for each cylinder. Each should appear more or less white, possibly with some spotty deposits on it. A spark plug that is covered with fluffy black carbon isn't completely igniting the fuel in the cylinder; this could indicate a bad plug, a weak coil, or a carburetor out of adjustment. A spark plug that is oily shows that oil is leaking into the combustion chamber, most likely through worn valve guides or possibly a slipped ring on the piston itself.

While your spark plugs are out, it also makes sense to take a compression test of each cylinder. You can borrow a compression tester from many auto parts stores, and buying one isn't all that expensive, either. Test your compression with all the spark plugs pulled--that will let the engine turn over fastest and will generate the best readings. It's also best--though not always possible--to test the compression when the engine is warm. Expect a cold engine to test 10-15 psi lower than one that's been warmed up.

The compression test will show several things. First, look for consistency across all the cylinders. If one cylinder reads dramatically lower than the others, that's almost certainly where your problem is coming from. It's not particularly likely in this motor, but excessive carbon buildup can also make a cylinder read higher than it should.

If you find a cylinder with a low compression reading--and/or the spark plug has shown that something unique is happening in that cylinder--pour about a tablespoon of motor oil into the cylinder through the spark plug hole and retest. If your compression reading is much higher, then the problem is most likely in the piston rings rather than in the valves or valve guides.

The description of an older bike with highly aromatic blue smoke suggests to me that you may have an oil burning problem. If that's the case, you may be able to temporarily reduce oil consumption by bumping up to a heavier oil. However, some oil will continue to migrate into the combustion chamber until you fix the actual gap or place where the oil is leaking in. Ultimately, with blue smoke, the proper fix requires some engine work.

2005 3.5l some times smokes oil then stops


Smoke oil? For what your thinking that is oil? Smoke coming from the tailpipe is not good news, but does not necessarily mean the engine needs rebuilding. First, you need to determine what color of smoke is coming from the tailpipe
* White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The white smoke is steam. There are special gaskets (head gaskets are the primary gaskets) that keep the antifreeze from entering the cylinder area.
* Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe.
* Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm.


If you confirm us that is oil smoke, check and keep in mind that the car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

1999 VULCAN HAS OIL LEAKING AROUND THE SPARK PLUG DOWN A WEEP HOLE AND OUT THE BACK OF THE CYLINDER HEAD. WHAT IS CAUSING BUILD UP OF OIL IN THE SPARK PLUG WELL? REAR CYLINDER RIGHT SIDE PLUG


hi, sounds like the oil seal in the rocker cover has failed, remove the rocker cover and you will see a rubber seal, this seals the oil inside the cover, however when the seal fails around the spark plug hole, oil leaks into spark plug well and out of weep hole.

Blue Smoke: Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer cars with fewer miles.

How did the engine oil get inside the cylinder in the first place? The car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil.

Changed plugs, excessive oil in 2 & 4 cylinders? Why??


The wording of your question is a little confusing. But, if you have any oil on your spark plugs, it means oil is leaking in from a bad seal. If your spark plugs go through the valve cover, then the seal under the valve cover may have gone bad. If you mean there is oil burn on to the spark plug, it could mean that the seals around your valves have gone bad and are allowing oil into the cylinders; you could also have bad rings on the affected cylinders and they are allowing excessive oil to come past the piston. You can usually see blue smoke coming out of the exhaust as well as the oil cap if this is the problem.

Smoke from exhaust; bad cylinder rough running


sounds like a head gasket or warped head. go buy a compression teseter. pull the spark plug wires off. remove spark plugs insert teset. turn engine over 3 times for each cylinder. should be within 10-15 of each other. check dipstick look to see if oil is milky.

Thick blue smoke. no oil leaks new spark plugs and spark plug wires. checked all cylenders cant figure out why its smoking.


Hi! Chris, There are many causes of oil burning or exhaust smoke. There are three different causes of normal oil burning, 1; worn valve guides (smoking during deceleration), 2; worn cylinders and piston rings (smoking during acceleration), 3; split or worn out valve seal, or damaged intake manifold gasket (smoking all the time). Of course there are several variables in this equation. Sometimes coolant can also get into a cylinder and cause a blueish smoke. If you remove the spark plugs and use a pressure pump on the coolant system (radiator), coolant should leak into the intake manifold or cylinder. Coolant leaking into the intake manifold will leak into several cylinder through the valves. So, what year and how many miles are on the Jaguar?
