Engine just started blowing smoke. I checked the oil and there was gas with the oil. The welder still starts and runs but there is gas in the oil. What is causing the gas to mix in with the oil?

Looks like you blew off a gasket, try not to run it and send it to an authorized service mechanic.

Sounds like you have water in the oil which means you could have a blown head gasket. Can you tell what got in the oil. Is it antifreeze or gas. If gas you probably have a injector sticking open.

My Craftsman 5.5 hp 14" rear tine tiller starts but doesn't run for long. It blows black smoke and quits. The gas is new and the oil is good.

Black smoke looks like it's burning too much oil. If it is a 2 stroke engine try a lower ratio of 2 stroke oil to gasoline mixture. Make sure you are using 2 stroke oil!
If it's a 4 stroke engine find out why and or how the oil is getting burned.

Have a toro self propelled. The engine cuts off as soon as it starts and prior to that it was blowing white smoke. It looks like there may be oil leaking under the exhaust, but can't tell where i

It could be that gas is filling the carb because the needle is stuck open. The excess can drain into the engine oil. If you check the oil and it's overfilled and runny, then you need to overhaul the carb and change the oil.

I have a 14.5 HP Intek OHV model 287707 that started blowing gray smoke out of the exhaust after running a couple minutes, then it dies but starts right up again. Also, the oil smells like gas. No...

Yes it is a carburetor problem. The float and needle are stuck open and it is flooding fuel into the crankcase. That is why your oil smells like gas and you have gray smoke. I will bet that it is hard to determine the exact oil level on the dipstick.

First, do not run the engine until corrected or you risk engine damage. The fuel in the oil acts like a thinner destroying the lubrication properties of the oil.

Second, take the carburetor off and clean/rebuild it. When you are satisfied with the carburetor, including the operation of the float and needle, reinstall.

Third, change the oil, for the reason stated in the first.

Fourth, with fuel in tank, note level to make sure not changing by draining through the carburetor.

Fifth, remove the spark plug and turn the engine over a few times to get oil back to the surfaces that need lubricated on startup. Reinstall spark plug

Sixth, check fuel tank level for drop, if no drop, Try starting the engine.

I hope this helps you get it going.

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.
