22 in persoal pace 195 cc Tecumseh oil leaks onto

22 in personal pace 195 cc Tecumseh oil leaks onto deck from valve side of engine - drips off cooling fin closest to crankcase. It is not the fill tube, no oil visible on cyl casing on fill tube side. all bolts snug. Leaks badly over 50 mins - from top of fill mark to below bottom mark. Is not burning - just leaking.

    Sounds like a possibility. Is there a link to a diagram that shows me exactly where this vent is and if there is a part involved? I guess I have to take off the shroud and flywheel to service it? Also, is there some what to visually inspect this without tearing it partly down?

There is a crankcase vent on top that may be cracked or out of place causing the oil to leak or the upper crankshaft seal may be leaking.

    You will be able to tell as soon as you get the rewind cover off, the vent is a tube that runs from the engine to the carburetor.

I have the same problem. Turns out that the crankcase gasket was seated wrong and kinked (it was a refurb engine). So it was leaking all the oil out the front and into the cooling fins.

    After taking the motor apart, I replaced it with gasket from Kiddie Boutiques on eBay. They have the cheapest prices for the gasket. The system has no leaks. I also checked to see if it was from the carburetor manifold. But in doing so I tore the gasket during removal. I had to replace it with a new one from Kiddie Boutiques. Part number 37609 and 36786. Works great.

What would leak oil onto the starter


the oil leak could be a bad valve cover gasket needing replacement, a head gasket leaking oil, a leaking intake gasket and oil running down along the engine block and dripping. it could be an oil pressure switch that is leaking. it is near the starter while driving or engine running can spray oil onto the starter. unless the oil leak is very bad and has been leaking a long time onto the starter will not cause it to act like a dead battery even then not likely. have a starter draw test down to check condition of the starter.

Could be oil dripping from the valve cover onto the exhaust pipe.
One drip can cause alot of smoke when it hits the pipe.
Could be power steering fluid too.

Smoke coming from the left side of the engine


this may be due to an oil leak getting onto the manifold or the manifold is cracked and exhaust gas is building up in the engine.

if smoke is intence and black this indicates oil.
if it is mid and grey blue this indicates exhaust gas


get checked by a mechanic


i hope this was useful.

My 1994 camaro w/ 3.4L engine has an oil leak in rear of engine. It is running down both sides of the block in rear. Oil filter is wet, but not leaking, the starter and bell housing drip oil and its...


This is most likely a leak from your rear main seal. It happens and can be a pain to replace if you're a DYI kinda person without the nec. equipment.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  2. Remove the transmission.
  3. If equipped with a manual transmission, remove the clutch and pressure plate.
  4. Remove the flywheel assembly.
  5. Using a suitable prytool, carefully pry the old seal out.
6. Inspect the crankshaft for nicks or burrs, correct as required.

To install:
  1. Clean the area and coat the seal with engine oil. Install the seal onto tool J-34686 for 3.4L engines, J 41349 for 3.8L engines or J 35621 for 5.7L engines.
  2. Install the tool (with the seal mounted to it) onto the rear of the crankshaft. Tighten the screws snugly to be sure the seal will be installed squarely over the crankshaft.

I have a Sears Craftsman mower with Tecumseh, major oil leak


On many Tecumseh engines, there is a crankcase breather located under the flywheel. It has a cork gasket to seal the top plate of the breather. Either the rubber breather housing is cracked, or the cork gasket needs replaced.
