Why does my 6.5 hp kohler lawn mower keep pulling oil into carb air filter

Its to stop the dust blocking the filter. The filter should be cleaned with petrol every 4 to 6 months to remove the dust & oil build up, cleaned in/with petrol and re-oiled. Its also good to clean the filter housing each time you clean the filter

Sounds like dirt or water in your fuel system. Have you drained the bowl on the bottom of the carburator? There is a small bolt on the bottom of the bowl; be careful not to over tighten it. If you find anything but fuel in the bowl you may need to drain your tank as well.

Nannie what can be wrong with my power devil petrol lawn mower the engine wont keep running then cuts out petrol and oil ok

Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.

If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent
