Hi, it is a common problem in ride on mowers. It's caused by fuel leaking past the needle float in the carby. The needle needs to be checked to make sure it is sealing. To do this crimp the fuel hose off and remove the bowl off the bottom of the carby. Hold the plastic float up parallel with the carby body and remove the crimp, no fuel should drip from the needle unless you lower the float from parallel. If fuel drips replace the needle and re check sealing. Re assemble when all is ok. Change the oil and fit an inline fuel tap. Turn the tap off when the mower is not in use to prevent further oil contamination. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

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.

I have a 18 hp briggs and stratton engine that will not start


A few more things to check.
1. The oil level. If the oil level is low the oil level sensor will ground the ignition.
2. Check the wiring from the seat safety switch to make sure it is connected.
3. Follow the black wires from the ignition control module to make sure none of them are chaffing and do not have a chassis ground.

If you still have problems disconnect ONE lead from the oil level sensor and see if you have spark. Most of the time these oil level sensors are the common failure.

Murray riding mower 12.5 hp briggs & stratton spitting oil & gas out of carb & muffler when trying to start


Drain oil... it is full of gasoline due to a bad float pin and rubber gromet in your carb. When your float pin and gromet fail, gas just keeps flowing into your carburetor, eventually flooding your motor with gas and oil mix.
