Float isn't working. It is leaking past the needle. Try taking the float out and use a q tip to clean out where the needle valve go's. And inspect the rubber tip carefully. If it has any mis shape or grove. Get a carb kit and rebuild it. That would be the thing to do in the first place. because the gas bypassing the piston and going into the oil will be enough for you to get a new motor too.

Spark plugs foul immediately


Fouled plugs may be caused by oil leaking into the cylinder. Does it smoke when running (cold), are you using up the crank oil. Black smoke is excess gas comsumption, blue smoke is oil burning. If your plug is fouled with black carbon, you are most likely running to rich.

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.

If you have that much gas in your oil it's usually because the float valve in the carburator is stuck open. This allows gas to overfill the carb, it then goes to the cylinder and is thin enough to get by the rings and into the crankcase. It could be because there is something in the valve seat keeping it from closing or the float could be damaged.

WhaT TYPE OF OIL DOES THE 16.5 HP B&S engine take


Your 16.5 hp Briggs engine takes SAE HD30 weight motor oil. I recommend to use a name brand high quality oil. It should take 48 ounces from a complete drain. If you run this engine when it is cold outside (below freezing) then you can change to a 10W30 oil.
Good luck

Briggs and stratton runs good for 5 minutes then starts to smoke


My first thought is that the throttle lever is being pushed so far forward ( max RPM's ) that you are running the engine 1/2 or better choked
Look at the choke butterfly with the throttle in your normal run position it should be completely open
This may require and adjustment in the control rods or might be as simple as not pushing the throttle wide open

My propane generator engine has apark and gas


For a quick test.

Check engine oil.

Remove wire from low oil sensor and see if it starts every time.

If that works change oil and replace low oil sensor.

Hope this tip helps to solve your problem.

Hard to start lawn tractor


I have 2009 lawn tractor that will not start (from day 1) unless I use a small squirt
of start fluid into the air cleaner area. Nothing else seems to work. The battery will run down before it starts. Once engine is warm it starts great. Love the tractor,
hate the starting problem. Elevation is not a problem in michigan.

Gas in oil 12.5 hp briggs and straton will not start


the float in the carb is stuck open, its flooding with gas. the gasoline is going past the rings and/or valves into the crankcase. you need to remove the float bowl and unstick and reset the float to specs, maybe a new seat and needle and change the oil before restarting.
