Lawnmower hardly running after I cleaned it by tipping it on its side. I noticed oil dripping. If I open the oil filler cap it starts to run properly but with oil cap open oil spits out everywhere.Briggs...


Tipping the machine on its side can allow engine oil to enter the air filter box via the engine breather, this will then soak the paper element air filter, you will need to remove and replace the filter.

PUTS OUT CLOUDS OFSMOKE AFTER IT WARMSUP AND LOOSES OIL


Check your oil level, it sounds like it is too high...too much oil...should only be to the bottom of the threads on the filler hole...or not past the high mark on the rod if used.

Where is the oil drain plug


The drain plug on a Briggs and Stratton engine is underneath the deck. Most likely it is concealed by cover for the self propel belt and possibly the blade as well.
The suggested method for draining the oil is to warm up the engine by running the unit for 10 minutes or more, though this should be sufficient time for the engine to have warmed up. Then drain the oil.
An alternate method is to drain the oil out of the oil filler tube. To do this, after the engine is warmed up, tilt the mower onto the side that has the oil filler tube. Put the drain pan under the filler tube, then remove the filler cap. The oil will drain out into the oil drain pan.
CAUTION: The oil that will come out of the engine will be HOT! So be careful when removing the oil filler cap.
I hope this will answer your question. Best of luck in this mowing season.

Where is the oil plug underneath the mower?


Depending on what engine is on your Toro lawnmower, there may not be a oil plug under the mower deck. A briggs and stratton engine will have one, but if the unit has self propel then you will have to move the guard over the self propel cable. This is a 1/2 in bolt, you will also have to loosen the other bolt to swing the guard around.
On a Kawasaki or Honda, and even if you have a Tecumseh engine then just start the mower up for a few minutes and let the engine oil get warm, then shut the engine off and then lay the mower on the side that has the oil filler cap and put your drain pan under the oil filler cap. You can then drain the oil out of the oil filler tube. You can also do this with the briggs and stratton engine. I find this to be a very convenient way to change the oil.
Then put fresh oil back in the unit. I always suggest to put the engine manufacturer's oil back in the unit, or if that is not available then use another oil from another engine manufacturer. IF you use automotive oil, the oil will break down faster since the heat level for the engine on car is less than that of the engine on your lawnmower. The engine has a water cooled design, that keeps the engine temperature from raising over about 250 degrees F. The engine temp on your lawnmower can get as hot as 400 degrees F in the summer heat and being run for 30 minutes or longer.
A longer answer than you had hoped but I hope the information keeps your lawnmower running well for many summers to come. :)

21hp briggs & stratton oil leaking out of vaccum pump, appears to come from the line connected to oil filler line. If you remove the oil filler cap while engine is running oil blows out????


The most likely cause for what you are describing is a blown head gasket,this will cause too much base pressure which is what the fuel pump runs off of and if this is the case the engine will be hard on oil and smoke at times.

Have a craftsman model :917.273621, with a briggs & stratton 24 hpohv...familyy;ybsxs.7242vf. will cut good for 30 minutes, then sputter and stall. I disengage blades, and pull out choke to keep it...


try the coil. the coil will produce the spark for the spark plug seeing as there is no battery, try replacing it with another of the same power.
