I suspect your saw is a bit long of tooth. The hole is your tank vent. There is usually a one way valve that only allows to enter the tank. Perhaps it is a victim of ethanol degradation as are many rubber parts in older saws. If you can find a new cap it should remedy the problem at least for a while. Lou Thank You for using FixYa.

Perhaps you tipped your mower over to clean underneath it? If you tip it the wrong way, yes, the oil will run up and into the carburetor, then out the carb and into the air filter. An oil leak would not cause this to happen due to gravity. If this was caused by tipping the mower, then let it set upright for a time and let everything run back to where it's suppose to go. It will take a bit to start it, but should work then. I'm hoping this is what your problem is. I hope this helps.

Have you tried adjusting the idle? On my 42cc, the adjusting screw is in the hole right above the primer bulb. Turn it clockwise to increase idle speed.
