Replace the gaskets on your motor. You are going to have to buy a gasket set in order to complete this. As long as you have not tried to start it, you will not have any other issues with your engine. But if you have tried to start the motor then you can possibly of hurt the valves or the piston. So if you did not try to start it then just rebuild the engine with the gasket kit, and everything will be fine after that

How to repair gas in oil problem for 21 HP brigg and straton engine


Most times a good cleaning and rebuild of the carburetor will fix this problem. Most it is the needle valve and seat that leaks.

One extra thing to check if this engine has vacuum operated fuel pump is see if fuel pump diaphragm has ruptured or not. If it has ruptured fuel can get into the crankcase via the vacuum hose.

Gas in crankcase


Fuel from the fuel tank flows to the carburetor and then on into the engine cylinders. From there it seeps into the crank case.
It's a matter of gravity. The gas will seep until it reaches the lowest point in the engine.
There are two methods of correcting this dangerous problem.
1) When you are done using the engine you can turn it upside down, over a large container that is of sufficient size to contain all the gas and oil that will run out of the engine.
or
2) Turn the fuel valve to it's OFF position when you are done running the engine. This stops the fuel from seeping into the crank case from the carburetor.
(And a heads up from one who has personal, first hand experience. Be sure to OPEN the fuel shut off valve when you think you would like to start the engine.)
If you should have this happen again DO NOT try to start the engine!
(That's one of the reasons The Da always said, "Did you check the oil before you started that engine?")
Dump out all of the oil that has been contaminated with fuel and replace it with fresh oil.

Getting fuel in oil on 19hp b&s motor. Cleaned carb and drained oil, fresh oil and started motor, motor ran for 3 or 4 minutes then had to use a little choke to keep running and then it started...


How long did it take to do this job..did you clean the the carb first...then the oil or vise versa...the reason I as is ma y if these motors are equipped with an electric valve on the carb that go bad or stuck allowing the gas to continue flowing after shut down eventually in the intake valves and into the crankcase...causing smoke and high crankcase pressure and out the carb and exhaust...no use changing it WILL happen again..the fix is simple put an inline gas shut off and shut it off if only shut down for minutes...happened to my 18 horse Briggs...just shut it off every time you turn the engine off..Hope this helps..good luck..

Briggs & Stratton Vertical OHV Engine 18 hp blowing white smoke engine run great but a lot of smoke and also have oil being spit out of the black hose that come from engine to the carb.


Check your oil.

If it is overfilled, milky, or smells like gas. Your going to need to change that ASAP. It sounds like the float has stuck in the past or is still sticking, and it has flooded the crankcase with gas, which has mixed with the oil. And because it is overfilled it comes through the breather hose into the carb. This also explains the smoke most probably because the oil is spewing in the carb through the breather and being burned.

When the float in the carb sticks, it allows fuel to drain into the cylinder, that runs pass the rings into the crankcase. When the crankcase is full the pistons cannot go down, and the starter won't turn the engine. Drain all the oil gas mixture, and refill with proper oil. Replace float, needle and seat in the carb bowl. Throughly clean fuel passages, and bowl. If motor won't turn, remove spark plug and turn over engine a few times to remove gas oil mixture from the cylinder too.

Fuel in crankcase


The fuel in the crank case is caused by bad rings or scratched/worn piston walls it the only way fuel can reach the crankcase unless you pour it in to the oil fill. The fix is to overhaul the engine. Thanks for using FixYa. Have a nice day. Jeff

I'm assuming this is a 4 cycle engine. If yes check the level of the oil in the crankcase - DON'T over fill, drain some out if over filled. If 2 cycle engine your oil mix is to rich. drain gas from tank and mix a fresh match of fuel with the proper amount of oil.
