It most likely is a ring problem as the gasket only keeps the combustion gases in and would leak around the head as a loud noise. Of course it could be the valves, but I doubt it as most of these engines are splash fed instead of pressure, so the only explanation is the compression ring is letting oil blow past.

The first thing I would check would be the oil level, to make sure you didn't put in too much oil. If the oil level is correct, it could be a stuck piston ring, letting oil blow by the piston, and out the exhaust. If this is the case, you are going to have to tear down the engine.

Hope this helps!

Need to know where oil drain plug is on 6.75 hp Briggs & Stratton engine on 2550 psi troy bilt pressure washer!!


I have the same model...... it should be just underneath the unit.... it will look like a square head recessed. I used the ratchet set extension and it fit just right. I literally had to tilt the darn thing upside down to find it. Then once it was loosen a bit, I put the machine upright on the wheels again, and slip a plastic pan underneath as I finished unscrewing the oil plug, Out came the black goo.

Oil appearing at exhaust, smokey, briggs and stratton lawm mower.


You will need to replace or clean the air filter, and probably the spark plug. Do not operate the mower for some hours to allow the oil drain (inside the engine). Check oil level and fill it if necessary. Some oil remaining in the exhaust should be burnt next time the lawnmower operates.You will see smoke at the beginning, that will be normal (burnt oil). Hope this helps!

Oil in air cleaner


Run it minus an air filter until all the oil is off your piston head, you can also try keeping the plug out and ejecting the oil via that access by pulling the cord. It seems like you've already solved the problem, now you're just cleaning up.
